Greetings!


  • Parent Education - In less than 5 minutes, listen to a topic each week to help parents better understand the various elements of school! This week, our topic is WORK PLANS. All videos can be accessed at any time as we will just add a new one to the grid each week, so if you missed our video on HOMEWORK, no need to worry!
  • WMS Service Society - The WMS Service Society is back in action for the 2019-2020 school year! For our new families, the WMS Service Society provides volunteer opportunities and service projects for WMS students to give back to their community and help those in need. We have an exciting year planned! Please see our calendar for the year long dates. Our first event will be Sept. 23@ Kathy’s House-Help prepare and serve a meal at our local hospital guest house. Five AP students will be picked up at dismissal and transported to Kathy’s House. Parents will need to pick up at Kathy’s House at 6pm. All families can help by signing up to donate ingredients for the meal! Thank you in advance for your support☺ For more information on Kathy’s house: https://kathys-house.org

  • Montessori Micro Marathon- The week of September 30, WMS students will be participating in the Montessori Micro-Marathon. Students will be able to walk, jog, or run the Breitlow Field warning track (outfield perimeter) during their regularly-scheduled gym classes. This fun run is one of the children's favorite events during the year. This year the kids will have 30 minutes to run laps around the roughly 350-meter course as many times as possible (just under a quarter mile). Afterwards they will be treated with a popsicle, a student favorite! See your child's Friday folder for pledge information!
  • Congrats - Shout out to WMS 6th graders Ben Nowacek and Mina Dunlop. Ben and Mina have been casted in the Whitman Middle School Play, Meet the Creeps. Congrats!


Have a great weekend,


Ashley Imperiale

Principal
