WMS SPIRIT WEEK
WMS Student Council will be sponsoring a spirit week next week (October 25th-29). We are encouraging all students and staff to participate!! Below is the information about the theme for each day!
Keeping Hands and Feet to Self
This next week we are going to focus on the expectation of keeping hands and feet to self. It is extremely important for students to not be touching each other. This includes play fighting, hugging, poking and slapping. Often times the touch is unwanted and many students have a hard time letting peers know it is not wanted. This is one of many reasons why we discourage students touching each other at school. Please have conversations with your student about this important expectation.
7th Grade = Smart Digital Branding
8th Grade = Learning from Failures

WE-SIDE COMMUNITY DIALOGUES
We invite you to take part in our WE-SIDE Community Dialogues, with two opportunities to get involved depending on what works best for your schedule:
- Tuesday, November 2 at 6:00pm at Westside High School (auditorium)
- Monday, November 8 at 6:00pm at Westside High School (auditorium)
Come learn more about what WE-SIDE is, what our goals are, and help provide feedback through interactive table-talks on what you’d like to see us pursue as we move forward. Inclusive Communities will be joining us to facilitate discussions on social issues and strategies to create a better sense of belonging for all.
Snacks and water will be provided; several attendees will win gift cards each night! Please mark your calendar and bring a friend to come learn with us and share your experiences.
WE-SIDE FALL ART CONTESTS
Our popular and inspiring district contest is BACK for 2021! We invite ALL students and staff members to create a poem, drawing, photograph, sculpture, digital/electronic art, or painting using the theme of Belonging Builds Community.
We will be awarding prizes for different grade levels and buildings throughout the district, and your work could be featured on Westside websites, social media and in future publications!
All entries are due by November 16th at 4:00pm. Bring your art to school or email it to Dr. Lucas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
