Wednesday, October 19th, is Unity Day, an annual event occurring during National Bullying Prevention Month that promotes joining together to create healthier communities through kindness, acceptance of difference, and inclusion. We are encouraging students to wear orange, the color that represents anti-bullying and unity, and bring a dollar to donate to our local Whiting YMCA. All donations go towards scholarships to help students and families with financial assistance with programming and membership. Students will give the dollar to their 1st period teacher on Wednesday, October 19th.
Parents and Students of WMS, Because of the lifting of COVID protocols, we can return to normal entry. 7th-grade students can enter the building at door 16 on the first floor this year as they did last year. However, 6th and 8th-grade students should enter at Door 17. Last year 8th grade would come through Door 18. This is no longer necessary and we ask that 8th-grade students enter Door 17 as they have in the past. Thanks and we look forward to a great year!
Good afternoon everyone! I had posted this on our WMS Facebook page but wanted to share it on the Live Feed and to your phones. The software has now rolled over and I am able to send it to all current 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade parents. WMS Open House is on August 10th, 2022.
Good morning! Summer school has come to an end today. Please look for a report to come home from your student. It is Pass/Fail report for math and reading. We look forward to seeing our returning students on August 11 and appreciate your help getting your student to summer school this year.
Good morning, Parents of Summer School students please look for a weekly report coming home from your child's teacher every Friday. There will also be a final report going on June 24. Thanks for your help.
Good afternoon parents, Report cards are being mailed home today. Please look for them in the next few days to arrive. Ilearn scores, that students took in April/May will also be included in the envelope. There will also be information regarding registration, book rental, etc... Please return any documents that will be needed for the 2022-2023 school year.

21st Century Event on Saturday, April 23.
Parents, ILearn testing time is here. Students will be taking the practice test on Monday, April 11. The actual test will start on Monday, April 18 and continue to April 22. Students have to take the practice test before it will allow the student to take the actual test. It is very helpful to make sure your student(s) arrive at school on time on testing days. Students cannot enter the class late once testing has started. We appreciate your help with this.
