2/25 - 3/1 Week 26 Blast for Educators
As we start off our Spring Student-Led Conference Week, I wanted to instill the importance of this week in our student’s education. As we prepare our students’ to lead (anything) we have to do the work to support, structure, and guide them. Every student should be prepared to lead a conference and hold a conference. If you have a hard time reaching parents/guardians, please let your grade-level leads know and we can assist in scheduling calls. We have requested translators for the afternoons and Monica/Annabel are also available with lead-time to help with conferences. This image spoke to me when I saw it. Our students say many things to us. It is up to us to listen and to prepare realistic plans for their success based on their context and circumstances. Remember that as their advisor, you are a main ingredient to their success. You may not hold all the answers and resources, but you can allow the reaching out and access to happen. Again, please let us know if you need support this week. All the resources, schedules and worksheets are linked for advisors below. We have sent home messages to all families about student-led conferences.
