Williams Crew Families,
I want to thank all of the people that helped put together the last minute planning of our trip to the airport. A big thanks to Ashley for organizing, Crescent, Steph, Chris, Jim, and Chad for Driving, and especially Hardy for hosting us. The crew learned a great deal about flight, navigation, and all of the ways our Truckee airport helps the community. I have posted the pictures on the crew website if you are interested in checking them out.
I wanted to let you know that we are having goal setting conferences on Tuesday October 14 from 12:00-5:30 and Wednesday October 15 from 12:00-3:00. I will share with you a Google document to sign-up for a half hour time slot. There will be two families scheduled for each half hour time slot. During that 30 minutes, you and your child will come with the goals you created for this school year. I will go through your goals with you to make sure they are SMART goals (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Timely). I have attached a document explaining what that means (or you can ask your child). The students came up with a first draft to their goals today. Sometime between now and the conference, each parent will need to sit down with their student and talk about their goals.
If your child has set goals that you agree with help them word their goals in a appropriate way that makes them SMART goals. If you do not agree that the goal that your child has set, help give them suggestions about areas that you think they should focus on improving.
For families that have come to the conference prepared with their goals, the conference could be very quick. I will read over the goals, make sure they are appropriate, answer any questions, and send you on your way.
For families that do not bring there completed goal sheets I will leave you alone with your child to create SMART goals. Once you have created your goals I will review them with you and answer any questions.
