WMHS Staff Dodgeball Game
The WMHS Zebra staff will take on the JGHS Rockets on Friday, February 3 at 4pm in the Old Gym. This event is great fun! Check out the hype video below for this fabulous event!!
The United Sports program is a co-ed sports based program that includes programs for all students, with and without disabilities. Wayne Westland has organized a basketball team for the Winter season that continues through the end of February with a KLAA Unified Tournament.
Our goal is to show that no matter the needs, abilities or disabilities of our
students, we can all come together as one Unified team.
We Need Help: We could use additional "student coaches" to get involved. These student coaches would assist the Special Olympians on the court, grabbing a rebound or two, passing the ball, helping to direct players regarding placement etc. The student coaches don't try to score, instead passing to open players. If you are interested, please contact the coaches for our program, Larry Lyman (email@example.com) and Ra-Mon Watkins (firstname.lastname@example.org).
