A Message from Administration
What a great year to be a War Hawk! You have probably already noticed that we have some exciting changes in place for the school year. We have a new schedule that gives our students and teachers more time in our core classes (ELA, Math, Science, and Social Studies) while still providing students access to World Language instruction, participation in the Fine Arts, and access to other engaging Academic Connections classes. We have also added a number of new faces to our staff including our new Assistant Principal, Mrs. Cook. In addition we are continuing our work of building a positive, kind, and safe school culture through our work in Capturing Kids' Hearts. We are also moving forward in our digital journey with Code to the Future and the Dynamic Learning Project.
I encourage you to regularly talk to your students about what they are doing, reading, and learning at school. I invite you to visit us and see for yourself the great work your students and our teachers are doing. I welcome your calls, emails, and visits.
Together we are going to have a high flying year at WKMS.
Proud to be your principal,
National Hispanic Heritage Month
Welcome To Our New Faculty & Staff
PowerSkill of the Month
Collaboration at its finest!
6th Grade Math classes have fun while strengthening their collaborative skills and reflecting upon what worked well and what didn't.
Working together in PE!
Teamwork at its finest! Communication is key to have all students lift their feet and pull the skis at the same time. Could you do it?
Could You Save Sam?
Students had to help Sam put his life saver on while only using paperclips AND being sure not to poke him. Try it at home. It's tougher than it seems.
