Welcome back! I do hope that you had a wonderful winter break. As you know, another semester is underway at WRHS, and it is shaping up to be as eventful as the last! Winter sports and activities are in full swing, and classes are going well!
One very important upcoming event that I would like to direct your attention to is Student-Led Conferences. They will occur on Wednesday and Thursday, February 6 and 7 respectively. Conference times are:
- Wednesday, February 6, 4:00 - 5:20 PM (open conferences)
- Wednesday, February 6, 5:20 - 8:00 PM (student-led conferences)
- Thursday, February 7, 7:30 - 11:00 AM (student-led conferences)
- Thursday, February 7, 12:00 - 3:00 PM (open conferences)
- Thursday, February 7, 4:00 - 5:20 PM (open conferences)
- Thursday, February 7, 5:20 - 8:00 PM (student-led conferences)
Student-Led Conferences will be by appointment and with your student's advisory teacher.
In an effort to better engage parents and students in academic and post-secondary planning, WRHS Parent Teacher Conferences will be student led in the same way they were first semester. Our students are utilizing the post-secondary planning tool called Naviance. Students use this tool to explore post-secondary interests, college options, and write personal goals. During conferences, your student will be sharing valuable information related to survey results, academic goals, and aligned career interests.
Of course, we realize that some of you may want to communicate with other teachers on your student's schedule, so we have set aside time from 12:00-3:00 during the day on Thursday and from 4:00-5:20 on Wednesday and Thursday evening for that purpose. Consistent with how we have conducted conferences in the past, these open conferences will be unscheduled and on a first come, first served basis. If an additional trip to our campus is inconvenient for you, please feel free to call your student's teachers during the day. Their contact information can be found at usd437.net/schools/wrhs/contact.html.
It is important to remember that our Counseling and Administrative Teams are also available through the evenings to meet. If there is anything at all that we can do for you, please don't hesitate to let us know.
On behalf of the staff at WRHS, I wish you all the very best in the New Year!
