Coyote’s Howl April 19 – 22

Dear Parents and Families,

We are excited to have the opportunity for student-led conferences in person this year.

Your child will be working over the next few weeks to prepare for their student-led conference with you. Please allow your child to lead this conference. It is important for your child to have the opportunity to take charge and lead your conference time with them. They will be excited to show you their learning and hard work but may also be a little nervous.

Please note that this is not a parent-teacher interview. Out of respect for the time and energy, your child will put in to prepare for student-leds, please refrain from shifting your questions towards your child’s teacher. Instead, direct your attention and your questions to your child. They will be delighted to answer any questions you may have about their learning. Remember, your child will only have 20 minutes to tell you about what they’ve been working on, and that time will go very quickly.

If you have questions for your child’s teacher, please make other arrangements to speak with them at a later time.

  • Each Class will be able to have 3 families per time slot.
  • Please keep siblings out of the classroom during your child’s student-led time.
  • There will be 10 minutes between time slots to allow people to exit the building before the next set of families.
  • Please exit quickly at the end of your time slot so that teachers can prepare for the next group of families.

Parents can book their Student-Led Conference starting on April 20th through Parent Connect. Mrs. Adam will send out an email when the system is open.




April 22nd is Earth Day – an opportunity to think about the actions we need to take to preserve our planet for current and future generations. On this day, we’d invite you to help your children walk, bike, scoot or roll to school – even if it’s just partway.  Through the leadership of our kids, we’ve already started to take action on air pollution (watch out for the new anti-idling signs!).  Help protect the health and well-being of our children through your own actions as parents and carers!
