Honors Night

This year we had over 500 students earn various honors and awards in our building! Although this is an incredible accomplishment for our students, it does not allow us to get a chance to celebrate in person. Due to the high number of students that would participate, we would not be able to social distance appropriately. For this reason, our honors recognition will be done virtually this year, similar to what was done last year. Parents of students who receive awards will be sent an email with information on how to view the virtual recognition presentation. In addition, students will notified of how and when to pick up their awards. We apologize that we cannot have this ceremony in person, but we are very excited about the incredible accomplishments of so many students.


Thank you for understanding and please contact our Assistant Principal, Brian Stevens, if you have any questions.

Please make sure your student is coming to school with a water bottle and a mask. We no longer have extra water bottles to hand out.


Thank you!!

After School Expectations

It is a WMS expectation that students leave campus no later than 3:40 unless they are involved in an activity or working with a teacher. We do offer the after school library program if students need to be on campus later than 3:40. Please contact Corrie Philo if you would like to sign your student up.


Once students leave the building they are asked to stay outside. If they need to re-enter the building they must go through the main office and check in.
