Rochester Rotary Events

Parent-teacher conferences are one of the best ways that a school, a student, and a student's family can come together to evaluate the student's progress, set future goals for the student to attain, and build better communications and relationships with the student's family.

The traditional parent-teacher conference has changed at Roberto Clemente School 8: each student will attend and lead his/her own conference twice during the school year. Students will take ownership of their learning, reflect upon their progress, explain areas of strength and weakness, and perhaps most importantly, set goals for both academic and personal development.

In this student led conference, the student puts in a tremendous amount of individual preparation. Unfortunately, not all parents are able to attend their child's conference and listen to how he/ she is doing, and how they plan to do better. That's where Rochester Rotary comes in: School 8 faculty and administration feel that this is such an important endeavor, that when a parent is unable to attend, they are asking a Rotarian to sit in on the conference. Our job is primarily to listen, ask relevant questions, and help the student set practical goals for academic and character improvement.

Conferences will be held on the following dates:

Each year in January, District Governors-Elect from all over the world converge in San Diego for the International Assembly. To provide an opportunity for these DGEs to experience life in Upstate New York prior to their training, for the past 45 years, District 7120 and Brighton Rotary Club have invited and home-hosted over 520 DGEs and their spouses from 43 countries.

We are currently signing up hosts for the 2018 session. Please give this opportunity your consideration. For more details, see the web-page here where you can see more of what to expect in newsletters from past sessions, and near the bottom of the page, download documents which help you understand expectation of hosts, and activity suggestions for your guests.

Hosting dates are January 5-9, 2018 (first term) and January 9-13, 2018 (2nd term), Rochester Rotarians typically host during the second term.
