Reflections from Ms. Perkins

WBMS Parents and Guardians –

We had another big week! Our 8th graders illustrated their knowledge on The IOWA test, our 7th graders geared up for desktop stores with their prototypes, our 6th graders focused on WWII, weathering, book clubs, percents, decimals, and fractions. We honored our School Resource Officer and Bus Drivers as this was their appreciation week, and we showed our support for the fight against breast cancer with a Friday Pink Out. In addition, we kicked off our Book Fair! Our biggest event this week was our annual International Night. Twenty countries were represented by our staff and families in our cafeteria. Tables were piled high with delicious food and cultural presentations. There were traditional games, arts and crafts, and music. Our school was packed with families and community members, and adults and children were dressed in the clothing representing many countries. It was truly a sight to see! Then bagpipes announced the start of a parade; our students carried flags from around the world and marched into the gym followed by the crowd. Our student MCs introduced 15 student groups who showcased cultural performances, and impressed us all with everything from martial arts to dancing to music to Yoyoing! They demonstrated more than talent; they displayed part of their identities, and it was beautiful! So many of our families and staff say this is their favorite night of the year, and I could not agree more! Watching our diverse community unite to celebrate together fills our building with joy.
