Reporting Conferences

Don’t forget that reporting conferences start this Friday and continue (for our class) on Tuesday and Wednesday after school. If you haven’t already signed up please make sure you check the link from the main Whonnock Elementary website and if you need an alternate date/time please feel free to email me at and we can arrange something that works better for you and your family.

A reminder that the reporting conferences need to be attended by at least one parent/guardian and the student as they are student-led conferences. Each conference is 30 minutes, of which 10 minutes will be spent outside looking over the portfolio with your child, then coming in to discuss progress, celebrate achievements, and set goals for the final term.

See you all soon!
