Dear Preschool Families, 

Happy Friday and Happy March! 

On Monday, booking for conferences on March 19th and 20th will open up on SchoolsBuddy. This upcoming round of conferences will look different, as they will be Student-Led, and it is essential that you bring your child with you to the conference. This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to demonstrate their learning, interest, and autonomy to you. It will be a glimpse into their life at school and the daily activities that they partake in. 

I wanted to provide you with information about what this will look like on a preschool level:  

  • Teachers will set up centers specifically catered to your child, depending on their preferences and capabilities.  

  • Your child will choose what they will show you. We encourage you to ask your child questions about what they are doing, in any language you wish. 

  •  Any questions about what is being demonstrated will be diverted to your child. This is a time for students to take ownership of their learning. If you have any questions about your child's academic or social/emotional development, please save these for later and schedule a different meeting with your child's teacher.  

  • The conference will be 25 minutes, to leave room for teachers to differentiate the centers to the next student coming. It is very important that you are on time, as you will be asked to leave when your time is up. This ensures that the schedule flows nicely and people are not left waiting for their appointments.  

  • You will be able to book regular 15-minute conferences with Mr. Alban, Ms. Ortenca, and me if you wish. 

Dismissal for preschool students on March 19th and 20th is 11:15 am. Thank you for your flexibility and support! 

Please also save the date and join me for a Preschool Chat on March 6th, at 8:15 am. We will talk about the upcoming conferences and all things preschool. This will be followed by a 4YO transition to Elementary meeting for 4YO parents. I hope you can make it!

I wish everyone a wonderful weekend and month!

Warm regards,
