Students at Northwest Elementary will be embarking on a new tradition this year...Student-Led Conferences! Teachers, as well as students, have been very successful and busy during this first quarter, and want to share their celebrations with their family members. Each student has their very own Data Folder, were they keep close track of their own goals, growth, and achievements. They collect pieces of work they are most proud of, as well as pieces of work that they know they need to improve on. During the conference, the student will lead his or her family through their educational journey and be able to explain where they are as a learner and what goals they have set for themselves. This is a great chance for the child to take ownership of their own strengths. We hope you enjoy this time with your child and their teacher. Together, we are creating tomorrow leaders.
