Student Led Conferences - Nov. 5th (Mon.-1:30pm-5:30pm) or Nov. 6th (Tues.-3:00pm-6:00pm)

(Scheduled times were sent home with students)

Park Elementary is excited for Student-Led Conferences Nov. 5th or 6th. Student led conferences engage children in understanding and taking ownership of their learning. There are multiple benefits for student led conferences. Students are given a voice in their education and accept and communicate personal responsibility for their learning. Students who participate in student-led conferences allow students to reflect on their progress and build goals around areas of strengths and weaknesses. At Park, we believe students who lead their conferences are building self-confidence, presentation skills, and critical-thinking. Classroom teachers will connect with parents for 10 minutes of the 20 minutes.
