We are inviting all parents/guardians to attend our Portfolio Evening on March 16 from 4:15 to 7:00pm. Our CMS students have been developing learning portfolios which they would like to share with you. We invite you to call the school for a 20 minute appointment for each of your children in our school. Appointments begin at 4:15, and the last appointment slot will be from 6:40 – 7:00.
Portfolios are one important tool to help students learn to make good judgments about their own work, which in turn helps them to improve their learning. We expect that every student will have an opportunity to share their work with an adult. If a parent/guardian is not available on that evening, grandparents, aunts and uncles, or adult siblings can come to the school to talk with your child about his/her learning.
In our age of fast-paced communication, it is sometimes difficult to give 20 minutes of undivided attention to one person. We request that, as much as possible, cell phones are set aside for attention a little later on in order to help this important learning discussion be as distraction-free as possible. Some students get nervous when showing their portfolios, so adult attention and encouragement are vital to ensure that the conversations are useful for learning. Teachers will provide you with some guidelines to help make you and your child have a good learning experience.
Please call the school at 204 346 9644 to make your appointment.
