JMS Student-Led Conferences

October 27, 2012

Parent-Teacher Conferences at Jefferson Middle School received an extreme makeover this year! Student-Led Conferences where the classroom teacher becomes the facilitator of the conference as opposed to the leader, debuted Thursday evening. The halls and classrooms were alive and overflowing with proud and enthusiastic students and their caring families.

Students came dressed for success and professionally presented portfolios of their 1st quarter work to their families. Each student was responsible for setting realistic and attainable goals for their future learning.

There has been an overwhelming positive response from parents, students and staff members regarding Jefferson's Student-Led Conferences.
