4th and 5th Grade STAAR Test
Next week our 4th and 5th-grade students will be taking the STAAR test! We have no doubt they are prepared and ready to do their very best! Please know that as a District and as Campus, we recognize that this is a one day, one test snapshot of information learned and in no way defines their success!! We know each one of our students exhibits #BAXTERSBEST qualities that allow them to reach their unlimited potential!! We are so proud of each and every one of them!!
4th-grade students will take the Writing STAAR test on Tuesday, April 9th. Please make sure that your child is on time and prepared with a great breakfast to do their best!
5th-grade students will take the Math STAAR test on Tuesday, April 9th and the Reading STAAR test on Wednesday, April 10th. Please make sure they are here on time and have had a great breakfast so they start the day off great!

Attention 5th Grade Families!
5th-grade students enjoyed trying different band instruments out with the WGMS Band during specials last week. 5th graders interested in joining the WGMS 6th grade band need to sign up for an "audition" slot in May. No experience is necessary, this is just a time for the band directors to help students try the instruments and choose an instrument for next year. The WGMS Band sign up genius can be located at wgmsband.weebly.com.

Applications for yearbook and 6th-grade robotics and coding have been posted. It is important for students wanting to try out for yearbook to know that there is a two-part project involved. All applications and projects are due to me by April 12th at 4 pm.
