I can't begin to tell you how well the school year is going thus far! Our students are working hard, and we now find ourselves fully immersed in fall activities and athletics. So far, it's proving to be a very exciting year!
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, October 23 and 24 respectively. Conference times are:
- Wednesday, October 23, 4:00 – 5:20 PM (open conferences)
- Wednesday, October 23, 5:20-8:00 PM (student-led conferences)
- Thursday, October 24, 7:30 – 11:00 AM (student-led conferences)
- Thursday, October 24, 12:00 - 3:00 PM (open conferences)
- Thursday, October 24, 4:00 – 5:20 PM (open conferences)
- Thursday, October 24, 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 Conferences are STUDENT LED. Our students are utilizing the post-secondary planning tool called Naviance. Students use this tool to explore post-secondary interests, college options, and to 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" conference times will be unscheduled and on a first come, first serve 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 https://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.
Finally, Homecoming was very successful! Out Student Council did a great job planning activities for the week of September 16. These days held lots of fun and exciting events for our students and staff! On Friday, September 20th, the week's activities culminated with a pep rally beginning at 2:30 PM followed by a "tailgate" party, our football game against Hayden High School, and—of course—the traditional crowning of the King and Queen. Parents were welcome to attend the parade, tailgate, and game. A homecoming dance was held the following evening, September 21st. What a memorable week!
As always, if I can be of any assistance to you, please do not hesitate to call. Hope to see you soon!
