A Friday Hello from Mrs. MacQueen

Happy Halloween everyone!

Next Friday, November 6th is our first three-way conference. Three-way conferences provide an opportunity for the student, teacher and parent to come together as a team to support the student’s learning. Kindergarten parents—you will be impressed at how even our youngest students are able to talk about their learning and their goals.

In preparation for the three-way conferences, students and teachers have been writing personal
learning plans or PLP’s. The personal learning plan helps the student be responsible for his or her own learning. It is goal oriented and allows the student to think about what he or she is learning, and to set goals around that learning. These goals look different, depending on the grade.

The parents are an important part of the conference. You bring to the conference knowledge of your child and his/her learning. Your child’s teacher will ask you to contribute to the learning goals for your child. Here are some suggestions for successful conferences:

  • Listen and allow your child to dominate the conversation. You will learn much about your child’s learning if you let them talk.
  • Avoid being evaluative and accept and respect the student as a learner.
  • Ask questions that open up conversations rather than close down communication. Openended questions are those that ask for explanations and examples.

Have a SPOOKTACULAR weekend!

Important Reminder:

For safety reasons, we have posted “No Parking” saw horses to the right of the school entrance. Please DO NOT park there. Use the parking lot if you are coming into the building, and the round ONLY if you are dropping off or picking your child up. Thanks!
