Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! Parents/guardians, you are our partners that help us provide the best educational opportunities for every student at WCMS. We encourage you to participate fully in your child's school experience - our doors are always open to you!

Homeroom begins daily at 8:00 AM. We offer additional morning instruction beginning at 7:30 AM if your child is struggling in any academic area. Please make every attempt to ensure that your child is at school on time and ready to learn daily.


We look forward to a successful school year with your child! On behalf of all our faculty and staff, we welcome you back to school! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 229-776-8620.


Sincerely,


Tiffany L. Sevier
