Dear Lower School Families,
We have enjoyed getting to know your children over the past few weeks building relationships, discovering curiosities and passions, as well as identifying strengths and stretches. We look forward to continuing to partner with you during Lower School Conferences. We value the teacher-family partnership to help each child grow and develop during these foundational years. While we, as educators, have goals for each student, we also want to hear about your family’s reflections on the development of your child.
As explained at Curriculum Morning, we will not have one Conference Day this fall, we hope to promote a culture of ongoing conferencing through feedback using our FreshGrade digital student ePortfolio, which launches on Friday, as well as face-to-face meetings.
Your child’s homeroom teacher will reach out to you directly to coordinate a time to come in for your fall conference before our Thanksgiving holiday. At the conference, teachers will share their observations about your child and your child’s self-reflection so far this school year.
As always, feel free to reach out to your child’s homeroom teacher or me with any questions.
Head of Lower School
