Student Led Conferences - April 9th (1:30pm-5:30pm) -or- April 10th (3:00pm-5:00pm) - Scheduled times came home with your student

Dear Families,

Park Elementary is excited for Student-Led Conferences April 9th or 10th. 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.
