We've Been Busy
The WWMS Counseling Department started off this busy school year strong as we reached out and connected with as many students as possible. We are visiting classrooms throughout September and October meeting with kids and providing classroom guidance lessons on empathy, bullying, coping skills, and cybersaftey. Lessons varied by grade level but all students received the basic messages about the importance of treating one another with kindness, making good choices about how to relate with peers, and understanding our school's bullying policies.
Red Ribbon Week
The Counseling Department will also be recognizing national "Red Ribbon Week." The week of October 24th is a unified way for schools and communities to take a stand against drugs and show intolerance for illicit drug use and the consequences for all Americans. Students will be exposed to opportunities to learn the "Truth about Drugs" and commit to live drug free lives.
On October 11th we are hosting a presentation for our 8th grade students from the Michigan Attorney General's Office called "OK2Say." The Michigan CSI program teaches students the importance of making safe and wise choices in a technologically evolving world. OK2SAY shows students how to protect themselves and those around them by encouraging confidential tips on criminal activities or potential harm directed at students, school employees, and schools.
There will also be a Community Presentation on October 11th at 6:00pm in the Warren Woods Middle School Auditorium. All Warren Woods families are invited and encouraged to attend.
During the last week of October the Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) team will be hosting this year's first school-wide Incentive. We want all eligible students to be able to participate so this means they need to get to their classes on time (no more than 4 tardies in October) and follow the Wolverine Ways (no office referrals).
