Parent Visit Days
Parents are invited to spend the day with their children in secondary school on October 19th and 20th. Students will be going to their normal classes, and parents can travel along to one class or all of them. The goal of this time is for parents to better understand student experience and to see how classes progress, to increase communication and familiarity with classes and the school. Parents can come and go as they like. Please note lunch is available for parent purchase only on Wednesday, October 20th.
Student Led Conferences
Students have begun preparing their portfolios in preparation of upcoming student-led conferences “SLC’s”. All parents will come to school to meet with an advisory teacher and their child to learn about their first quarter progress. This is an important time for students to practice speaking to their parents and teachers in preparation for future interviews and work reviews leading up to senior presentations completed in 12th grade. Meetings will last approximately 15 minutes and if additional teacher discussions are needed parents are welcome to arrange a meeting time with that teacher anytime.
