Dear GES Families:

I hope everyone had a great weekend. You know when we have had too much rain when there are ducks on our playground instead of children.It looks like there is more rain coming this week :(

Thank you to all the families that came out for our Enchanted Forest Family Fun night. It was a blast making woodland crafts, dancing, and checking out the books at the book fair. Thank you once again to the Volunteer Steering Committee for making it a great night.  Remember the book fair will be open all this week.

We are excited for our learner led conferences on Friday.  


  • Express positive interest and anticipation about the upcoming conference.

  • Be on time.

  • Listen and respond to the learner.

  • Express pride in growth and progress.

  • Ask questions (see below for samples).

  • Be positive, offering to help in areas where improvement is needed.

  • Recognize that learners need to develop independence in communicating progress – the teacher will be there to facilitate and answer specific questions.


  • Can you explain this to me?

  • How did you come up with this idea?

  • How have you grown in this area?

  • How can you improve in this area?

  • How can we help you at home?

  • What was important to you about this?

  • If you could do this work over again, how would you change it?

  • What future goals do you have as a learner?
