Imagine Bella students prepared for student led conferences about their first quarter report cards. Students had the opportunity to share a portfolio of work samples that demonstrated their strengths and areas for improvement. Students reflected on each piece and explained why it was selected. Additionally, students shared with their parents their academic and behavior goals for next quarter.
