We Are A.R.M.Y. Strong!!

Each day, we say the Continental Creed: "As a member of the Continental Army, I promise to be Accountable, Respectful, Motivated to Learn, and do mY best." We also remind students of our school goal of achieving a letter grade of a B in three years or less....Students will hear us say "Are you helping us get to a B in 3?" If we all focus on being ARMY Strong every day, we will reach this goal!

Mark Your Calendars for Grading Information

This year, the WMS staff will be transitioning to Standards-Based Grading. We want to be able to communicate what your child knows/doesn't know based on the list of skills students are supposed to be learning in each grade level. This means that grading throughout the quarter will be different from traditional grading. Please plan to meet us during an informational session on September 8th or 9th. We will have 7:30, 11:00, 2:00, and 6:00 sessions on both days. You can choose which session is convenient for you. As always, contact Ms. Branson or Mr. Merriwether if you have questions or concerns.

Enlist in our PTSA

We are in the midst of the membership drive for our PTSA. Please consider joining for a minimum of $7. Your support goes a long way to provide school dances, the 8th grade block party, honors night, and much more. Additional donations allow your student to be recognized with a star on the bulletin board or with a star on their locker. Forms are available in the front office. Please support our Continental ARMY and enlist in the PTSA!
