Families – April 28th is our parent-teacher conference day. In 5th grade, we use this day for students to exhibit their portfolios boards. Parents have the opportunity to view examples of each student’s work, which allows them to compare and contrast their own child with other “typical fifth graders” in the class. We’ve found this to be a powerful way for parents to assess their child’s performance. The portfolios will be on display in the classroom from 10 am to 4 pm on Friday, April 28th. Bring your kids! If after viewing you wish to discuss your child’s progress, I will be available from 11 to 3:45 for informal conferences on a drop-in basis. If you have questions, please let me know. Thanks!
