Hello Greenspire Middle School Community –
This week’s trait is Love of Learning.
Greenspire Summer Camp 2022 Sign-Up
If you have not done so already, please check out our GreenspireSummer Camp 2022 page on our website.
We have some great sessions available this summer with limited availability, so register now!
Parent teacher conferences for the second semester are Thursday, April 14th from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm and Friday, April 15th from 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm.
Based on parent feedback from parent teacher conferences over the past couple of school years, we are adopting a new format for the spring that is more inline with Greenspire AND most importantly, it will also make your life a lot easier by being able to schedule a single appointment.
We will move to a student-led conference format for Thursday, April 14th evening session. Students and and their parents/guardians will meet with the student’s Advisory teacher. Students will lead the conference and go through each of their classes to report on their performance. During the week of April 4th, you will sign-up for a student-led conference time via Sign-Up Genius. You will receive the link from me to do so that morning. The Friday afternoon session will move to a drop-in format where you can meet with individual teachers if you have any lingering questions from the student led conference the previous evening. No appointments are made during this Friday afternoon session and it will look very similar to parent-teacher conferences in the past. This session will begin at 1:30 pm and end promptly at 3:30 pm, so please arrive early if you plan to meet with multiple teachers.
I have had the pleasure of working in two middle schools that used student-led conferences in the past. They have always been met with positive feedback from parents/guardians as it makes the student even more accountable for their own progress and it allows the student to report directly to you their areas of success and areas of improvement.
Stay tuned for the Sign-Up Genius link that will be sent the morning of April 4th.
