Middle School News by Mr. Horrell

Dear Parent/Guardian,

It’s hard to believe that we are almost finished with November.  As we head into Thanksgiving week, I hope that you know how thankful WMS is to have such great partners in education.  We are thankful for your students and the effort that they give us each day. Please take a moment to read through some important announcements below:

  • Tuesday, Nov. 26th, will be Pajama Bottom Day at WMS.  Wear your PJ bottoms to school, bring $1.00, and support the Give Kids Christmas Fund.  What a comfy day to come to school! 
  • The Ambassadors and NJHS are conducting our annual Basic Necessity Drive from now through December 13. We are currently accepting basic necessity items in new condition.  Items include toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, soap, body wash, multi-purpose cleaner, dish soap, and laundry detergent. Items can be dropped off in the main office to Mrs. Price.   These items will be part of our Christmas program for Western families! 
  • School will NOT be in session on Wednesday, November 27- Friday, November 29.  Enjoy spending time with your family for Thanksgiving. School will resume on December 2, 2019.
  • There are several sports announcements that are listed in our daily school announcements.  Girls basketball and wrestling will be having tryouts very soon. If you have a student interested, be sure to check the daily announcements posted on our webpage. (  All athletes must have a physical on file to tryout.  

  As always, I can be reached by calling the school at 765-883-5566, by email, or by stopping in the office.  If you should ever reach my voicemail, please know that all messages are sent directly to my email and I will reach you as soon as possible.  Should you ever have a question or concern, please do not hesitate to get a hold of me. I hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family.  Enjoy your shortened week of school and spend some extra time with those that matter that most.

Juuling..What is it & What does it mean to Juul?

The Juul, a trendy vape that resembles a flash drive and can be charged in a laptop’s USB port, accounted for 33% of the e-cigarette market as of late 2017, according to Wells Fargo data. The product is made for and legally available only to adults 18 and older, but in many cases, media reports suggest, these devices are being used by kids and teenagers even younger than that — leaving parents, educators and medical professionals concerned.
