D-PREP Holds 2nd Coffee Hour

D-PREP Holds 2nd Coffee Hour

At D-PREP, our regular coffee hours are designed for parents to discover more about how we teach, learn, and support our students and their development.

Over 40 parents joined us for our second coffee hour. This coffee hour had two main topics. Firstly, Ms. Lady and Mr. Tor started our session with practical tips on how parents can apply our co-creator values at home. The focus this month is the value of being OPEN. You can find these tips by following this link:

The second topic was related to assessment at school. This started with a short overview of what assessment is, why we assess our students, and an overview of the various ways we assess our students’ progress and development.

Following this, parents split into three groups depending on the phase of the school their children attend. In these groups, parents participated in a workshop focused on aspects of assessment in each of these school phases.

Nursery and Kindergarten

This session was led by Ms. Kimmy, one of our Grade 1 teachers, and supported by Ms. Lady. This session included the forms of assessment used and appropriate in Nursery and Kindergarten. Most of the session was focused on our phonics program and how parents can support phonemic development at home.  

Primary and Middle School

Mr. Bob, our Principal, led the session with the primary parents. This workshop was supported by Mr. Tor, our School Developer. The Middle School parents’ workshop was led by Ms. Maricar, our Head of Teaching and Learning, and supported by Mr. Tony, our Head of Business and Operations.

The focus of these sessions was on assessment. We shared a range of student work with parents. The parents did a great job working together and had lots of fun deciding whether these were formative or summative assessments.

These sessions finished with a look at NWEA MAP testing data. We shared with parents how to read and understand their child’s report.
