SEP / Student Led Conferences – Wednesday, March 16

 SEP conferences on March 16 will be Student Led Conferences. Student Led Conferences provide opportunities for students to make learning active as they share their knowledge and understanding of essential learning outcomes. These conferences will also help students evaluate their performance on key standards, and in turn, accept additional responsibility for their learning.

We ask that all parents come with their student to our Student Led Conferences on March 16 at a time that works best for you according to the following schedule:

Student Led Conferences will be held from 2:45 - 4:30pm and 5:45 - 8:00pm.

Each conference should last between 20 and 30 minutes. Please come at a time that works best for you within these windows.

In addition to Student Led Conferences, if you would like to schedule a time to meet privately with your teacher, please contact the office at 801-798-4480. Times for a private conference will be scheduled for March 16 between 4:45 and 5:15pm and after 8:00pm. We are also happy to schedule a time before or after school on another day.
