What are Student-Led Conferences?
A student-led conference is one during which the student is responsible for leading the conference and presenting their progress to their parents/guardians/significant adults. They lead a discussion of their academic accomplishments, future goals and interests. They use work samples and data to guide their discussion. Of course, this would look much different in kindergarten than it does in grades 6-8.
Why the Change?
*The Bremerton School District cannot count the conference days as school days if any group (or portion) of students is excluded. So, if we said, West Hills’ K-5 students don’t need to come to school, the District cannot count it as a school day.
Students of the Month for October

The following video clip on CREATIVITY was shared with all K-5th grade students.
Every month we have a random drawing for those K-5 and 6-8 students who had PERFECT Attendance for the Month. In addition, the classroom with the HIGHEST average gets to have a stuffed GRIFFIN in their classroom for the month. Below are our honorees for the month of October.
