Reflecting on Last Week 

  • Student led conferences at Bains are full of helpful information and smiles, and they are very inspirational.  This is not your mother's parent-teacher conference.  These conferences are led by the students.  The student reviews their portfolio, which includes student work, student data, goals for the year, and self-evaluations.  When students set goals, good things happen.  They learn how to work toward a goal, to make adjustments, and they understand how success happens.  Kudos to Bains for offering this opportunity to our students and parents!

McKenzie Hausey reviews her goals and her data with her mom and Ms. Rosenbach, her teacher.

McKenzie Hausey and her mom celebrate after McKenzie showed huge success in accomplishing her reading lexile goal.

 

  • Congratulations goes to Mr. Lee Coleman for being selected as the 2017-18 Louisiana National Guard Mentor of the Year! Mr. Coleman is our Family Service Supervisor.  He supervises our Head Start, Early Head Start, Adult Education Program, our Medical Facility, and serves on numerous committees.  He also does a lot more, including starting up a mentoring program for which he was recognized.  Mr. Coleman is not only a veteran educator but he is also 27-year veteran of the Air National Guard.  And by the way, he has been a student, teacher, and assistant principal in West Fel.

  • Coach Robb Odom and Coach Preston King talk about the championship on 104.5 FM at Schlittz and Giggles in Baton Rouge. (Notice, they never take their eyes off the trophy!)

 

  • Davon "Smoke" Harris was awarded Channel 9's Player of the Week! 

  • At Bains, students take time before school to review homework, study, or just read.  It's a Bains thing.

Food for Thought

  • At this time of the year, we all begin to reflect on the blessings we have in our lives.  I hope that you have some time to appreciate what you have and that you can share your joy with your family and friends.  For some, Christmas might be more difficult so please lift up others with a kind word or a smile or a helping hand.  From the West Fel Saints Family to yours...Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

WFHS Senior, WJ Johnson, celebrates the holiday spirit!
