Post-conference: Parent Learning

Posted on May 21, 2022

Parents, at the end-of-year conferences, we hope that the time spent with your child and the classroom teacher provided an opportunity for new learning. Consider these --

  • What insights did you have about your child that was a surprise for you?
  • With the understanding that learning is continuous growth, what 1-2 things would you like to see your child continue next year?
  • What home supports have you committed to over the summer so that your child transitions well from a busy summer into a new academic year?
  • What did you learn about yourself as a parent in this assessment process?( Learning as a reciprocal process, that is, while the spotlight in the conference was on your child's learning, what was your learning about yourself?)

Feel free to send email with your thoughts in response to these questions. ednah@midpac.edu

The last four days of the school will be marked with celebrations, and in these traditions, there will still be continuous learning. The Convocation (Monday), though virtual, will gather of all students, preschool through high school, faculty and staff, to acknowledge our school community and the graduating Seniors, Class of 2022. A virtual Fly-Up Day (Wednesday) precedes the 5th grade Leavetaking, conveying the idea that all students are flying up to the next grade level in their continuous development. Families unable to attend Leavetaking due to campus restrictions can still view the ceremony, which will be livestreamed at 10:00a.m. on the Mid-Pacific Facebook url: https://www.facebook.com/midpac

I can't think of any better way to bring the school year to a close than with the tradition of Field Day on Thursday. Details will be coming from the classroom teachers and posted on the preschool/elementary main page on myPueo. The last blog of the this academic year will be posted next Sunday with photos of the events in the last week of school.

An incredible week ahead! Donʻt blink or youʻll miss it.

E Kūlia Kākou! Letʻs strive and aspire together!

For our children,

Edna L. Hussey, Ed.D.
