STUDENT-LED CONFERENCES (previously Parent-Teacher Interview) are scheduled for WEDNESDAY, MARCH 19, 2014. These Conferences will be for Elementary and Secondary (Grades K – 12). The purpose of the Student-Led Conferences is to allow your child to tell the story of their own success and to show what they are learning! Students will have opportunity to present their portfolio, containing samples of related work, while allowing for dialogue between Student, Parent and Teacher during a 15 minute appointment time. Please come to this conference prepared to listen, acknowledge your child’s effort and growth, and ask questions of your child and Teacher. You may e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school office at 403-286-5686 to schedule your appointment time.

What has God done for you today? How has He blessed you? How has He taken care of you? Have you taken some time to think about all that He has done for you? “If we would but think of God as often as we have evidence of His care for us we should keep Him ever in our thoughts and should delight to talk of Him and to praise Him” (Steps to Christ, p. 102).
