  • 9th Grade Student-Led Conferences (last name A-H)

    March 9, 2021  5:00 pm - 5:30 pm
    meet.google.com/pjc-ndji-pyi

    SLCs are important check-in conversations, facilitated by students and designed to help foster meaningful reflection and conversation about student growth and progress. SLCs occur once a semester and are mandatory for all 9th, 10th and 11th grade students. Each SLC should take approximately 30 minutes to complete.

    To continue to keep our campus and community safe and healthy, all SLCs will take place online on March 9 and 11 as follows:

    9th Grade SLCs; Tuesday March 9

    9th Grade SLC Format
    No matter your age, finding success and excellence can be hard, especially in a year like this. SLCs are oftentimes a chance for students to share that excellence or mastery and reflect on the big wins and stinging mistakes of the semester. This year, 9th grade educators are asking students and guardians to share a deeper, more two-way conversation, setting the stage for a fresh and powerful SLC experience. A succinct and thoughtful list of questions to guide these conversations will be supplied during the meeting.
