Feed My Starving Children
WMMS Student Council wrapped up the school year doing what they do best - giving up their time to help others. They packed 67 boxes of food at Feed My Starving Children in Chanhassen, which equals 14,472 meals! After packing the food, they celebrated their hard work with lunch at Culvers.
Thanks for a great year, Student Council!!
8th grade Mock Trial
One eighth-grade class of Mrs. Hager’s was quite vocal that they wanted to try out a mock trial that they missed last year in Jepma’s class due to Covid. This class was completing the trial as part of their public speaking unit. The case that they studied was Jackie Peifer vs. the state of MN. The verdict the group decided was…Innocent!
6th Grade Field Trip to the Science Museum of Minnesota.
This week was our 6th graders' turn to go to the Science Museum and Omnitheater! They had a great time exploring "Under the Sea!"

Student Expectations When Dismissed From School
Students are dismissed from school at 2:50 p.m. At that time students are expected to leave the school unless they are participating in an afterschool program and supervised by a district employee. Students being picked by a family member should wait at the MS main entrance. Students riding the bus should wait at the entrance to door 6 in the HS. Students are not allowed to loiter on the MS/HS campus after dismissal.
Vision and Hearing
Due to COVID challenges and space limitations, the health office staff will not be conducting routine hearing and vision screening for middle school students during the 21-22 school year. If you have concerns about your student's hearing or vision, please contact MS nurse Kelly Maas at firstname.lastname@example.org and your student will be screened individually.
Reporting Concerns For Bullying
All absences from school, including late drop off/early pick up will need to be reported to our attendance secretary, Miranda Winker, at email@example.com or (952) 955-0421.
Upcoming Family Event or VacationIf you're planning for your student to be absent from school you may fill this Excused Absence Form out ahead of time. This form can be dropped off at the Middle School Office or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
What to do if your child is ill
Parents need to be the first line of defense in our Health and Safety protocols. As a reminder parents are expected to perform a daily health screening for their children before sending them to school. If your child is exhibiting any signs or symptoms of illness, the child is expected to remain out of school until his/her symptoms have greatly improved. Please see full details on this page, WM Health and Safety Protocols.
