Welcome back! I do hope that you had a memorable 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!
A 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 15 and 16 respectively. Conference times are:
- Wednesday, February 15, 4:00 - 8:00 PM
- Thursday, February 16, 7:30 - 11:00 AM
- Thursday, February 16, 12:00 - 3:00 PM
- Thursday, February 16, 4:00 - 8:00 PM
One of the most important things that you can do as a parent to help your child achieve is to not only establish regular and open communication with their teachers, but also become informed about what courses and programs your student most enjoys and the ways in which high school experiences and opportunities can and will relate to post-secondary success. Our Student-Led Conferences afford students and parents the opportunity for this very thing, alongside their Advisory Teacher. Unique only to Student-Led Conferences: Your student will share their personalized graduation plan, reflect upon academic, social, and activity involvement, and share two personal goals he/she has recently set. I would also encourage you to share any other information about your child that would assist us in better understanding their needs.
We plan to offer the same scheduling opportunities as we did in October through our scheduling platform, myconferencetime.com. Students will sign up during their advisory class for their Student-Led Conference during the week of January 30th. Beginning February 6th, you will have the opportunity to schedule with as many of your student's other teachers as you need to. 15-minute appointments will be available, and you'll have the opportunity to choose virtual or in-person meetings. Our Counseling and Administrative Staff will also be listed on myconferencetime.com and available during conferences. Please do not hesitate to schedule with one of us.
As we move closer to the end of the third 9-weeks, we are aware that some students may be struggling. Tuesday/Thursday Interventions continue and are a great opportunity for students who need more time on campus to work. If your child is referred by our staff, we certainly hope you will support our efforts to ensure their success by encouraging attendance. It is our mission to ensure that every student learns to the best of their ability.
Please let us know how your student is doing. We hope to see you during conferences!
