Student Led Conferences

On Tuesday, September 26th and Thursday, September 28th, we are inviting you to attend a type of parent conference called a student led conference. This means that the conference will be led by your child, not by the teachers. Student led conferences allow us to invite all parents to take part in their child’s learning experiences. As students lead their conferences with you, the teachers will be facilitating the conferences; therefore will not be available to actively participate in individual student led conferences.

This conference gives your son/daughter the opportunity to present to you assignments he/she has completed and to reflect and communicate how he/she is doing in middle school. This conference will also give your family the opportunity to set some goals to ensure success for the remainder of the school year. We will prepare your child for the student led conference by teaching him or her how to lead a successful conference. Time will also be allocated beforehand for your child to practice leading a conference.

Remember that your child’s teachers will be present to facilitate this event, but they will not be available to conference individually. Please keep in mind that we conference with parents/guardians throughout the school year; you may contact one of your child’s teachers or guidance counselor at any point during the school year to schedule an individual meeting with your child’s teachers.

You are welcome to attend on either day, (September 26th at any time between 4:30 pm and 7:00 pmSeptember 28th at any time between 3:15 pm and 7:00 pm; you only have to attend on one day).  We encourage you to participate in this event so that you can learn more about Mesa Middle School and your child’s academic experiences. 

If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact any one of your child’s teachers or administrator.

When it comes to mental health services, communities traditionally focus on supporting kids as needs arise. This work is crucial for the safety of our students. Equally important, though, is prevention-based programming that can help, early on, prevent the social-emotional challenges our kids may be experiencing from escalating.
