PTSA Box Top Blitz
The WMS PTSA is sponsoring a Winter Box Top Blitz. So start clipping all of those Box Tops off the products you have already purchased. Then gather them up, check the expiration dates, place them in a ziploc baggy, write your student's name and first period teacher's name on the front. Then, send them in to school with your student to turn into their first period teacher. The student that sends in the most Box Tops during the blitz wins a $25 gift card to Target. The classroom that collects the most box tops will win an extra recess with a special treat. Happy Clipping!

New WMS Grading Policy
If you couldn't attend one of the eight parent meetings on our new grading policy last week, you can find the details of the new system at this link. At any time, you can calculate your child's grade in a class by dividing the number of 3's or 3+'s by the total number of assessments entered into the gradebook. Please know that students can apply to retake any assessments by working to learn the material and applying to the teacher. If you have additional questions, please contact Mr. Merriwether, Ms. Branson or Mrs. Shields.
How is your child doing in classes?
