Math Pentathlon Success

We are so proud of how hard the kids worked for the last 4 months on learning these games! Thank you, parents, for supporting them and the program this year! We could not have a tournament without your help. All of the kids did great! It takes a lot of courage to play kids they don't even know. It's a more stressful situation then just practicing at school!


We hope to see your children continue in the Math Pentathlon program next year. It was a ton of fun and they really did a great job learning the games!

Attention 5th Grade Families!

5th-grade students enjoyed trying different band instruments out with the WGMS Band during specials last week. 5th graders interested in joining the WGMS 6th grade band need to sign up for an "audition" slot in May. No experience is necessary, this is just a time for the band directors to help students try the instruments and choose an instrument for next year. The WGMS Band sign up genius can be located at wgmsband.weebly.com.
