We all feel proud

Self-reflection and assessment, setting goals, planning and giving a presentation of their work; students gain valuable skills preparing for student-led conferences. They also get the reward of proud parents!

Here is what a 2-3 teacher wrote to parents after the conferences:

I want to thank you all for such an excellent day. This is the one school day a year that Lynne and I are on the sidelines, a complete audience to our incredible learners. To watch our students share their progress and insights about their intellectual and social lives is an honor. To hear the feedback you gave and pride you shined on your children has plastered a smile on our faces. This day was a gift. This is a day that reminds me that we are all so lucky to share this unique learning community at Parker. Thank you.
