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

"As a member of the Continental Army, I promise to be Accountable, Respectful, Motivated to Learn, and do mY best."

Our vision is to ensure that all students are WMS ARMY Strong and are prepared for high school, college and careers.

Please be checking with Students on their grades and homework completion. Many of the homework assignments show a green checkmark when they are completed. We are seeing many students starting assignments but we need to continue to improve the number of students completing assignments.

8th Grade Recognition Ceremony Scheduled

Our 8th graders will be recognized at the Promotion Ceremony on Monday, May 20th at 8:30am in the Bosse High School Auditorium. This is a formal ceremony, so students are encouraged to dress up for the occasion.

The dress code: Ladies can wear dresses, skirts or dress pants. Dresses and skirts must be longer than finger tip length and shoulders must be covered. If girls are wearing dresses with tank tops or straps, they can cover shoulders with sweaters or jackets.

Gentlemen are encouraged to wear dress shirts and ties or bow ties. Jackets and suits are encouraged.

Parking: Parking will be limited to the football stadium parking lot along Highway 41. Please enter the doors that face Washington Avenue. The main parking lot will only be open for handicapped family members.

This is a formal event to honor the work of our students. We ask that you help us model appropriate and respectful behavior during this event by clapping respectfully and refraining from yelling as student names are being called. This is out of respect for all families, so they can also hear their child's name.

Yearbook Sales

Washington Middle School yearbooks are now on sale! Yearbooks will be available at the Recognition Ceremony on May 20. The price of a yearbook is $16.

Free Dress for Honors Students

All students who have achieved Honor Roll for quarter 3 will be able to wear free dress this week. Please be reminded that shorts and skirts must be longer than finger tip length and chests must be covered. T-shirts must have appropriate logos or messages. Students wearing anything not school appropriate will be asked to change clothes or call home for a change.

Field Day on Wednesday - Kona Ice and Concession open

Students will be competing against other homerooms on Wednesday of this week. All students will wear shorts and a t-shirt that matches the color of their homerooms. Please make sure shorts are longer than finger tip length. We look forward to enjoying the last day of school with our students having fun. The concession stand and Kona Ice will be available for students on that day, so they may bring money to spend on snacks.

Happy Summer Vacation!

We hope that all of you get to enjoy time with the people you love doing the things that refuel you. Please be safe and make some memories. We look forward to seeing our returning students in August!
