Student Led Conference
Next week on Tuesday and Wednesday, Draper Park Middle School will be offering student led conferences. This is a specific format that many schools use for Parent/Teacher conference. Student led offers many advantages for you and your students. This is an opportunity for students to really talk with you about their school performance, what work they are proud of and what goals and objectives they believe will help them improve. We, as a faculty and staff at Draper Park, use this format to encourage students to feel pride and ownership in their education.
The schedule format will follow an open house forum. You will arrive with your students and choose to start with your student’s core team hallway. Elective teachers will also be available in classrooms with portfolios and able to answer questions. We would encourage you to visit all your student’s teachers.
Upon arrival to your student’s core hallway, teachers will have a portfolio for you to discuss with your students and talk about your student’s accomplishments and goals for continued progress. Teachers will also be available to discuss individual issues with you. Please be mindful of others who are also waiting to ask to teachers questions.
Once finished with the core portfolio, we would encourage you to visit your student’s elective teachers and follow the same process for individual electives.
The following will be a schedule of the event for both days. Attendance for both days is not necessary. Appointments are not necessary. Simply pick which day and time is most convenient to you and come and help us celebrate your student’s achievements and goals for the future! In order to make the process smoother we recommend you print and bring your student’s schedule before attending either day
