February 2022 News

THANK YOU for making our inaugural Student-Led Teacher Conferences such a success!!! We received encouraging and positive feedback from parents and saw some excellent conversations between them and their children. Our students were able to clearly articulate their grades, progress, and goals. This event would not have been possible without all of our teachers and students hard work and our parents support. THANK YOU!

***A special thanks to Kayce Tyler for putting in the behind-the-scenes work planning for this event!

:Here is some feedback from the parent surveys:

"This allowed my son to be more comfortable informing me about the areas he needs more help."

"The session allowed the students private time to share with their parent and I think it was an amazing experience."

"She did excellent being that she's so shy. She really opened up."

"I really enjoyed this style and look forward to more."
