Join Us For a Parent Conference

This is the first of what we hope will be a yearly parent conference/institute that will highlight a responsive and engaging practice that really speaks to the inclusive work so many of our teachers are doing to involve parents in the academic, behavioral, and social growth of their students.

This year, Farmer Elementary teacher – Ms. Jaimie Thornsbury will lead a session on teacher conferencing, student self assessment, and collective (student, teacher, school, and parent) ownership.

Please make plans to attend!
