Families

FamiliesSBCS wholeheartedly welcomes families into our community.  Parents and guardians are always able to visit and observe their students' classes.  We encourage parent participation in fieldwork, celebrations, and other events.  Twice each year, during Culminating Events, all students showcase what they have been learning through exhibits, demonstrations, Socratic seminars, dance performances, and more.  Also twice yearly, we hold Student-Led Conferences (SLC's).  During their SLC's, students sit down with family members to formally share what they have learned during the school year.  SLC's allow students to reflect on and articulate their learning challenges and strengths, and to set goals with their families for the upcoming trimester.  Parents are always welcome to set up separate, private conferences with teachers whenever they have concerns about their student's growth.
