A Message from Mr. Knobbe
I hope all of our WMJH Families had a great Thanksgiving Break and that our students were able to spend quality time with family and friends. We are excited to get back to the classrooms, the fine arts hallways, and the gyms! We have an extremely busy three weeks before the Winter Break begins at the end of the day on Friday, December 17th. We have band, choir, and orchestra concerts, we have boys and girls basketball games, and we have important teaching and learning going on in the classrooms the next 15 school days. I will encourage our students to finish strong this first semester. We have 11 days of instruction before the final exams begin on Tuesday, December 15th and we will encourage our students to put in the work in all of our classrooms to complete our first semester on the right note!
Our Jaguars have accomplished so much this first semester and I encourage you to show your #WMJHpride by visiting the PTA link below and ordering a Jaguar front yard sign, a West Memorial Jaguar hoodie, activity stickers, or one of the most unique offerings--a Jaguar Paw painted memento in our WMJH Hallway!
