We have been working hard to prepare for PARCC testing and conferences simultaneously, while still trying to finish our What Matter To Me essay. It's been a challenge to address all three thoroughly. Kids have been working hard, though, and we are all looking forward to the upcoming break.
On Monday we will start our math sessions of PARCC. We will have two session on Monday, and two on Tuesday. Please help your student prepare by ensuring that they are well rested, fed, and on time during these testing days. We have a tight testing schedule and will need to start on time. The rest of our testing sessions are after spring break.
Thanks to all for signing up for conferences next week. We have begun our portfolio organization and reflections of work this year, but will continue to prepare next week as well. Students will be driving their conversation at their conference, using a checklist/guide that we will create next week. I look forward to seeing you all next week.
Day Of Dialogue! Wednesday, March 22nd
Parents are invited, March 22! Every year the Walkabout puts on a conference about an important issue. We call this event a Day of Dialogue. This year the students planning the day are inviting parents to participate. This invitation is for all Open School parents. The theme is population, sustainability and human rights. The community is exploring how these three topics are interrelated. You will find a program in the weekly wire and posted on the front doors at school. Can't wait to see you there March 22!
