Thank you to the parents who attended today’s Student Led Conferences. I hope you noticed a big difference in how our faculty engaged with your child regarding his/her Approaches to Learning. The faculty has been working on conferencing, practicing with each other, calibrating our thinking about ATLs so we are more aligned and focus learning conversations towards a student’s growth. Thank you for your support!

I wish you all a wonderful Carnival holiday. When we return, our Seniors will have a few short weeks left prior to mock exams. The rest of our students will dig into new learning.

Vacation is a great time to slow down and have conversations with your child without the pressure of a regular work or school week. Here are some thoughts for some fun conversation starters:

  • Who is the funniest person you know? What makes them funny?
  • What’s your favorite family tradition?
  • What do you wish we did more often as a family?
  • In our family, what are the most important ways we show each other that we care about each other?
  • What are you most proud of?

Juniors: Please sign up for the TOEFL iBT this year.  The TOEFL will be offered at The ONE Institute on March 24th.  Usually, this is not a test that requires studying, however, if you would like resources, please come see me.  The TOEFL is offered many times each month, however, I am pleased to say it is offered at The ONE Institute and I am sure their technological specifications are top notch.
