Sign Up for Conferences Nov. 20, 21, & 22
Published on Oct 23, 2013 08:30

Dear Falcon Families,

This year, we are once again holding student led conferences. One change is that your child’s advisor will be the facilitator of this conference. In some cases, your child’s advisor is also one of your child’s teachers. In other cases, they are not. The advisor/advisee relationship has been developed in daily sessions of 15 minutes. There is a basic understanding forming of how your child functions as a learner.

Please WATCH this you tube clip OR read directions below. Click on the blue underlined link to open. There is an easy to follow short video.

To sign up for this fall student led conference (your child KNOWS how to do this FOR YOU)...:

1. Sign into your CHILD’s Email Account (www.google.com). Click on “Gmail” at the top of the screen.

2. In their email there are two ways to get to the form for sign up. The first way is directly through the LINK in their email sent from Mr. Leach. The second way is to click on “:drive” at the top of the google gmail page. This takes you into the documents that have been created by or shared with your child.

3. Click on the “shared with me” tab on the side of the page located under the “my drive” tab.

4. In this section look for the document called “JLMS Conference Sign Up”.

5. Open the link by clicking on it.

6. Find your child’s advisor. Pick your time and place your CHILD’s name in the blank (First and Last name please).

7. Record the conference time in a place where you will remember the time. No need to save or submit, as google “auto saves” all changes.

Each conference will last up to 30 minutes in length. The conference does allow for time for specific parent to teacher conversation (without student present), but please understand that this is a STUDENT LED experience. We want to hear from you. Advisors may not be primary teacher for your student, so we will send out a form for parents to complete with potential questions. Please use this form to let your child’s advisor know about any questions, concerns, or thoughts that you would like them to look into prior to the conference. Getting students to own and talk about their learning is important to us here at John Long Middle School.

 

Mr. Leach
Principal
