With conferences right around the corner, I am reminded of how this one of my favorite times of the year as a classroom teacher. I loved being able to have conversations with parents about their child's progress and goal-setting. This year, we are fully instituting Student-Led Parent/Teacher Conferences. We piloted this approach last year with great success. It is important that we instill in our students their responsibility and accountability in their own learning. Please let me know how your conference goes. I am sure you will be very impressed with the learning that your child is doing at MRHE because our students are scholars!
Please mark your calendars for the Elementary Parent/Board Dialog for Monday, Oct. 17th. We hope that you can make it. We wil be meeting in the Elementary music room. This is an informal talk hosted by the MRH Board of Education. The Board is interested in hearing your thoughts, concerns and questions about MRH Elementary School. this is your opportunity to share ideas and insights, and talk about issues that are important to you as a parent of an MRH Elementary student. You'll be able to ask questions of the board, school and district administrators, and hear questions from other parents.
Also, here are some other important coming dates:
•Oct. 12----Early Release Day (12:50)
•Oct. 14----End of 1st Quarter
•Oct. 25, 27---Student Led Parent/Teacher Conferences (your student will play a major role in leading this conversation about their progress)
•Oct. 28----No School (Professional Development Day)
