I hope that your new year has started off on a great note. As usual, it’s always off to a busy start at Western Middle School. Please take a few moments to check out some important announcements regarding WMS in the coming week and weeks ahead!
ATTENTION 8th Grade Parents: The Western High School Counseling Department will be conducting a meeting for current 8th grade students and parents to present information about high school diploma types, credits, scheduling, etc.... It will be held on Tuesday evening (1/14) from 6-7pm in the auditorium. PLEASE PLAN TO ATTEND!!!
You should have received important information from Mr. McCracken on January 3, 2020 outlining the procedures that are taken when threats of any kind are made to the school. Over the course of last week, I followed up with all students about the expectations for while at school as well as when using social media. Students were communicated to about the severity of any type of threat and the importance of treating each other with respect both on and off of school grounds. As always, if you are aware of any issue, please contact me as soon as possible.
New Year, New Goals! Our library is challenging all students to “Resolve to Read in 2020”. I know that I am currently working on a couple of books myself. This month’s featured author is Holly Black.
Winter sports pictures will be taken on February 10 after school. The schedule is listed in the daily announcements.
There will be NO SCHOOL next Monday, January 20 in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. day. Students will NOT have any e-Learning on that day either.
