6th Grade Student-led Conferences

Student-led conferences are very different from “traditional” conferences in that you and your child will meet with your student’s Advisor at a pre-determined 15-minute time slot, and your student will lead a review of their progress at Olson so far. This review will include selected work samples from all classes, strengths and weaknesses as a learner, and goals for the remainder of the school year. Please come to this conference prepared to listen, acknowledge his or her effort and growth, and ask questions of your student. You will also be asked to help complete the goals and develop a plan to achieve them. Please designate your first, second, and third choices of conference times on the sign-up sheet provided. We will make every attempt to meet your first choice. Your student will bring home a paper confirmation of your conference date and time slot. If you need to reschedule, please call us at 612.668.1640 or email your student’s Advisor right away. Be assured that if you wish to speak with specific teachers a drop-in time will be available. In addition, you will be able to leave messages for specific teachers and/or follow up via phone or email. We thank you for your support!
