WMS Weekly Warrior
Week of 5-9-22
Good Afternoon WMS Families,
We hope all our Mothers enjoyed their special weekend. Thank you to our Parents in the Middle (PIM) for organizing a very successful plant sale. By the end of the day, we were almost completely sold out!
SBAC testing begins Tuesday, and students are reminded to have charged Chromebooks and wired earphones. Smartwatches, phones, and wireless earbuds will not be allowed in the testing classrooms. Testing will begin just after arrival Tuesday, so please be on time for school. We encourage all of our students to put their best foot forward and do their best on these state assessments. SBAC assessments are also scheduled for May 17 and 19. The Next Generation Science Standards assessment will be on May 24th for our 8th-grade students only.
After a very chilly and windy weekend, the weather forecast for this week looks like we will finally start to warm up. Warm weather usually requires a reminder about appropriate school dress. The Region 14 district handbook states that student dress may be regulated, and students are encouraged to dress in clothing appropriate to the school situation. Restrictions on freedom of expression may be applied whenever the mode of dress is unsafe, disruptive, or contrary to law. Students who violate the dress code will be asked to change or cover. Parents may also be asked to provide an appropriate change of clothes if necessary. Please monitor your student's dress before attending school each day.
We have added some important dates to our calendar for the end of the month. To allow for more participation, PIM will hold a virtual meeting on May 24th at 6:00. We will send out a link for this meeting in the May 23rd Warrior. The WMS music concert is on May 25th at 6:30 in the school gymnasium, and many music students will be enjoying a trip to Six Flags on May 27th.
Lastly, we are inviting our parents of incoming 6th-grade students to attend our annual orientation program for parents at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 26th, in the middle school gym. This meeting is for parents only. Students and parents will be invited again in August for a complete orientation.
If you have any questions regarding the end of the year schedule, don't hesitate to contact our main office.
Have a great week,
Bill Nemec, Principal
