Student led Conference

The Joy James teachers and students recently hosted their Family Academic Night.  This year’s academic night had an innovative twist.  Students conducted their own parent conferences by leading their parents through their own learning process and progress.  Kindergarten through 5th grade students have been tracking personal learning in data notebooks and digital portfolios since day one of this school year.  Students were able to showcase their accomplishments as well as have conversations with their families about skills that need to be practiced.  This innovative twist developed from the idea of wanting to provide JJE students with opportunities to take more ownership in their personal learning journeys.  Campus-wide academic progress is being made in all areas at Joy James and it was fun for students and teachers to join parents in taking a moment to share why we are so proud of our accomplishments.
