3-Way Learning Conversations: September 28 and 29
Please don’t forget that we have our Learning Conversations next week. This will be a casual conversation with the goal to help students understand themselves as learners better as well as for parents and teachers to be more informed about how to help the learning process. Parents and teachers will be helping to develop the metacognitive processes, dispositions and skills needed to support life-long learning.
IMPORTANT MESSAGE — Mobile Phone Use
This message is to all students and parents in the Lower School. When students arrive to school in the morning, they must keep their phones in their locker. They don’t need their phone during the day. We have other devices that do what we need. Our personal devices aren’t needed unless we find a purpose for them and a teacher gives permission. We appreciate parent support in this matter. Please don’t ask your child to call you before or during the school day.
