Dear 5th and 6th Grade Parents,

I hope 2018 is off to a great start for all of you!

As you know, parent-teacher conferences are scheduled for Friday, February 2nd.  I am writing to let you know that the format for the 5th and 6th grade conferences in February will be different from what you experienced in the fall. Your son will not only attend the conference with you in February, but he will actually take an active leadership role in the conference. Student-led conferences help to increase ownership in the learning process for each student as well as providing each boy with an opportunity to develop his communication skills. Many schools around the country have experienced great benefits from these types of conferences.  

The boys are currently conferring with each of their teachers about their progress and goals and are writing their “scripts” for the conference. During this process, the boys are beginning to see how their strengths, weaknesses and behaviors can affect them as learners, thus allowing them to take more responsibility for their own learning. Each boy has been assigned a conference facilitator who will help him prepare for the conference and will be present to facilitate the conference. During the conference, each boy will reflect on his progress and share his goals for the remainder of the year with his parents. 

Because each boy will attend the conference, we would like to schedule all of the conferences on the 2nd. Within the next few days you will receive information about scheduling a time for your conference from the person facilitating your son’s conference. Due to the format of the conference, we have increased the amount of time allotted for each conference to 25 minutes.

The boys are working very hard to prepare for their conference with you. They are eager (and a little nervous) to share their reflections and goals with you. Your participation in the conference will be important as we set learning goals for the remainder of the school year. At the end of the conference you will, of course, have an opportunity to ask any questions you might have.

As always, thank you for your support and cooperation. We look forward to seeing you on February 2nd for conference day.

Sincerely,

Laura Glenn
