Exhibition - Next week is our Exhibition night on Wed., Dec 11th from 5 - 6:30. I am so excited to see them share their learning, and I hope you and your student are excited about it as well!
Students will bring their materials / display on Wednesday morning and we will finish setting up by around 9:30. Please have your child come straight to the Forum with their Exhibition materials to set up. If they need any help, please come with them to assist. If they have valuable items (such as a laptop or ipad), they can set up the rest of their display in the morning and then add the item at 5:00 when Exhibition begins.
During the day, students will practice greeting guests and having conversations about their projects. Please help your student get comfortable with this ahead of time. Some general questions that guests may ask them are:
- Can you tell me more about…?
- Why did…?
- How did…?
- What inspired you to do this project?
- What did you enjoy most about your project?
- Did you learn to do anything new as part of your project?
- What was challenging or hard about your project?
- What are you most proud of in this project?
- Now that you are finished, is there anything you wish you had done differently?
- Would you recommend a project like this for other students?
Exhibition Attire - Don’t forget to dress for success. Please focus more on the spirit of the attire request than worry about details. We want everyone to be dressed to be taken seriously. See the link for details.
Work Journal #2 - You need to have work journal #2 completely filled out by Friday, Dec. 13th at 11:59 PM. Whew! Won’t it feel good to be finished? Don’t be late - we hate sending out non-compliance letters.
Student Led Conferences (SLCs) - We have our second round of Student Led Conferences Dec. 16th - 20th. If you have not yet signed up for a 45-minute appointment, you can do so here.
Report Card Comments - It’s that time of year when you are invited to send me both parent and student written report card comments. Report Card Comment guidelines and submission information are available at the bottom of the 11.22.19 blog post, as well as on the general resources page. You and your student can write up to 1400 characters (including spaces) which comes out to about 250-280 words. Please check the character count as either your comments or mine will be cut off if it goes over that limit. Please submit your comments by Dec. 13th. Have questions? Let me know.
