Student-led conferences were held at WEMCHS on November 8.  Parents and students who were able to attend can attest to the fact that the conferences were an extraordinary success.  Students discussed their notebook organization, planning calendars, assignment logs, reading logs, learning logs, Cornell notes, and journal entries with their parents.  They also showed their parents their essays, projects, and tests.  With parents, each student reflected on his or her successes and targeted areas for improvement.  The student-led conferences were a valuable experience for WEMCHS students to showcase their academic achievements thus far. 

If you were unable to attend the student-led conferences but would still like to participate in this experience with your child, please contact me at WEMCHS to arrange an appointment.  I am generally free from 3:40 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.  If this time frame does not accomodate your schedule, please take comfort in the fact that more student-led conferences will be held throughout the academic year.  I look forward to hearing from you.
