We are excited to announce that we will be having spring portfolio parties! This format is similar to the student-led parent/teacher conferences that have been held in the past. During each 30-minute time block, each student (5 students per day) will meet with their parents to showcase their progress in first grade. With assistance from the teacher, the children will be responsible for choosing the items that are being shared during the portfolio party. We know you will be proud as you listen to your child while he/she shares information about the First Grade Year. Please come prepared with 2 or 3 thoughtful questions to ask your child. The children will look forward to answering your questions. I will act as a facilitator and circulate (float) between the each group. Report cards will be sent home separately and will not be a part of the discussion.  Click here to select a slot.  

PLEASE NOTE: These are student-led conferences. I will be there to chime-in occasionally, but not to meet formally with each family. If you have any questions about gifted testing (including placement, guidelines or entrance criteria) I encourage you to make an appointment the SRS Gifted Team here. There are several March conference dates still available.
