Student Led Conferences
Our fall conferences will be held at Reeves Middle School from Tuesday, October 25 through Thursday, October 27. Students will have early release days during the conference week. (Friday, October 28th will also be an early release day, but conferences will not be held in order to accommodate the evening conference on Thursday from 4:00--7:00 pm). Click here for Schedule for the week.
The conference format will be student-led conferences. In this process, one of your student’s teachers will be present to help guide the process and provide additional feedback if needed. You will not be meeting with all of your student’s teachers at this time. Your student will be working hard over the next two weeks to compile a portfolio to share examples of work with you as well as assessments of progress in each class. They will be practicing how to discuss their skills as a learner, and they will work with you to set a long-term academic goal for the school year. This process is vital to the success of your student. It is expected that at least one parent/guardian attend the conference with their student.
Conferences will be scheduled through Skyward Family Access (Click here for Directions). You can also go to this link to see a video on how to schedule your student led conferences:
Conference appointment slots will be opened up on Saturday October 15th at 12:00 am for you to schedule the appointment time slot that best fits your needs. Please understand that slots may fill up quickly so make your appointment as soon as possible. If you have trouble signing up for an appointment time slot, please touch base with your assigned teacher for the student led conference.
If after conferences you feel that you need to speak with an individual teacher please email that teacher so that the communication can start through that process. We are happy to schedule an individual meeting after the conference week, if necessary.
Thank you – we look forward to seeing you during conference week!

First PBIS Drawing
On September 30th, we completed our first monthly drawing for students that have exhibited the Reeves' 4 R's. Every day, any student that exemplifies the Reeves' Raiders four R's (Ready, Responsible, Respectful, Resilient) in or out of class has an opportunity to earn a "shield" (paper ticket) from any staff member (including their bus driver). A student that earns their first shield, receives a Reeves' Raiders' wrist band (ask your student to show you!). Then throughout the year we will provide random acts of kindness for any student wearing the wristband at that time. We had a random act of kindness on last Friday and any student wearing, at that time, a Reeves' Raider wrist band was sent down to the cafeteria during Opportunity Time for a snack.
After a student receives their first wristband, any additional shield they earn goes into a bucket at the attendance office with Mrs. Jones with their first and last name on the "shield" and they are eligible for the monthly drawing. The winners of the September drawing were:
1st prize, Forrest Milam: free large pizza and an order of wings
2nd prize, Cole Hall: newly designed Reeves Raider t-shirt and Reeves lanyard
3rd prize (grand prize), Jayla Garry: Chris Peterson (UW Football Coach) bobble head and 4 VIP tickets to Boom Shaka !
Please congratulate these students for the winnings, but more importantly for representing the 4 R's: Ready, Responsible, Respectful, Resiliency
