Lakewood Park Elementary School students and families recently enjoyed Student Led Conferences, where students can show, with examples, their learning to their parents who can then see and experience materials and activities that students engaged in during the school day. Awards are presented during the evening event, such as for perfect attendance, the Kids at Hope Award, and honor roll. Parents may also see PowerPoint presentations outlining their child’s future goals, while teachers enjoy observing the interaction among all active participants. Pictured is a group of students with Superintendent Genelle Yost in Lori Checchi’s kindergarten class, who have taken charge of their own learning, are reviewing their goals, and talk about what they are doing at the present. From left, are Michael Reynolds, Khloe Williams, Jose Ojeda, Superintendent Yost, and Piper Hambleton.
