CHOIR NEWS!

Hi, parents and students in grades 5-8!


This spring has been a very trying time for you. It has also been a learning time for me creating virtual lessons and sending them to students through my google classrooms. I hope the students (and in many cases parents too) have been able to keep up with schoolwork. I understand that there are many priorities in life, and we all need to remember those. The first being our own health and well being. Another being helping others. ☺ Be kind to one another and yourself. Do the best that you can. Make a difference! Take pride in who you are and what you can do. Stay focused on the positive. Get out and do whatever activities you can to take a break when life is hard. Stay structured in your daily routines. You are a blessing! Be a blessing to someone else! Hang in there, things will get better. Please let me know if I can do anything for you!


And lastly, a word to my graduating 8th graders! What a great group! We have had some laughs and some tough times too. Yes, we missed out on some of the really fun times at the end of the year. I wish that were not true! Thanks, baritones, for working so hard on your parts! You have come a long way! Thanks, altos, for learning to harmonize. You make beautiful music even more beautiful! And thanks to you also, sopranos, for being patient while others are improving. You sing the melody so wonderfully! I can always count on you to do your part well. Thanks to all of you for learning life together with me. I love you all and wish you all the best in high school and beyond! May God bless you always!!


Mrs. Barker

3rd Grade ELA....What's Your Opinion?

The students were to write an Opinion Writing paper on Google Docs about their favorite book or movie. Then they created a promotional poster or 3D illustration of their favorite scene. Here are a few examples of the projects. Mrs. Niemuth thinks they did an awesome job!

NEWS FROM AROUND THE WORLD!

Mr. Hoey's

3rd and 6th Grade

Social Studies


As we all know the fourth quarter did not go as planned, but a lot of great learning still took place. Many students worked very hard and did an excellent job. Online assignments required students to read passages, watch videos, and complete projects. Sixth graders studied Europe, Asia, and Australia. Third graders completed their year by learning about the history of Wisconsin. They explored early farming, mining, and logging methods. They also learned how and why our state grew and developed over time. Many students did a great job and worked very hard on their daily assignments. However, an elite few went about their daily business like champions. I want to recognize the following students for their outstanding accomplishments during this unprecedented time. These students showed perseverance, excellence, and outstanding effort with their classwork. I want to thank them and let them know how proud I am of their work ethics and the pride they displayed in their work on a daily basis. Congratulations!

Walworth Middle School Instrumental Music News!

Congratulations to the following students for being our Zoom Scavenger Hunt winners! They received a special "treat" box in the mail to make their week a bit sweeter. Brooklyn, Jane, and Tyler.


Also, Mrs. Zwirlein would like to award two students the 2020 Outstanding Band Student Award. This year's recipients are AJ and Gavin. AJ has been an exceptional leader in Symphonic Band and Jazz Ensemble and devoted a great deal of time for the American Legion in the playing of TAPS. Gavin joined band as a 6th grader and made a tremendous amount of progress. He has been a leader in all areas of the band program and did a great job on his band assignments during our time of virtual learning. Congrats to you both!


Next year will definitely look different, but I can guarantee that music will be alive and well at Walworth Middle School. If your son/daughter rented a Walworth instrument, please return this to school no later than Thursday, June 4th. In addition, WSMA Solo and Ensemble medals will be available for pick-up Monday, June 1st. Please contact the office to schedule your pick-up. Be on the lookout for an upcoming mailing/email with summer information and Solo Ensemble Medal names.

I hope that everyone stays healthy and safe this summer. Enjoy the summer and good weather. Take time to read under a tree. That was one of my favorite things to do with my best friend Laura when I was in elementary school.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in the fall.

Mrs. Wenzel


I’ve been a teacher for over 25 years and this certainly was a very unique year! I am so proud of the efforts of all of our students as they have adjusted to an entirely new way of learning. Fantastic job kids! I hope you have a great summer and I can’t wait to see you next fall.

Stay safe and healthy!

Love,

Wildcat Wishes for Soon-To-Be Second Graders

from Mrs. Cullen

I am glad I was your first grade teacher,

I’ve come to love you so.

I can’t believe the end is near,

I hate to see you go!

Remember all the fun we had

In all the things we did,

But most of all remember

You’re a VERY special kid!

I am sorry we didn’t get to say goodbye.

Goodbyes are not forever.

Goodbyes are not the end.

It simply means I’ll miss you,

but we’ll be strong

and carry on

until we meet again.

Have a happy, healthy, and safe summer!


Hello Students! I want to wish you a wonderful summer and look forward to seeing you soon! I hope you are able to relax, have fun, and enjoy many moments of "belly" laughter! Don't ever forget how amazing you are and that many people care about you! Sending lots of love and air hugs!

Mrs. Ott-Wilson


To all my Wildcat Friends,

I have missed you, missed you, missed you

Now that school is out for the year, I hope you have a FABULOUS FUN Time.

Stay Safe

Mrs. Coleman


I want you to all know that I’m thinking about you and miss you daily!

To the 8th graders, this was not how you anticipated your years here at Walworth to end, and I’m so sorry for that. Good luck in high school. You will be missed!

While we are apart, learn with your family! Look at a family photo album and learn some family history, show your kindness by reading to someone, go outside and look at how beautiful our world is! Take a walk, kick a ball, walk your dog, ride your bike or read a book! Find a favorite summer reading spot! (I have two! Sitting on the beach, listening to the waves and seagulls and sitting in our backyard in the hammock!)

Have a fun, safe summer! I love you all!

Mrs. Weborg


Congratulations to Mrs. Janney's class on finishing their Kindergarten year!

Great job to parents for loving and encouraging your child!

I am so proud of you all and will miss you tremendously!

Love,

Mrs. Janney


To my 6th grade students,

Thank you for a great school year. While this was not a traditional end, I have enjoyed having each and every one of you in class, and I have missed seeing your smiling faces over the last few months. I cannot wait to be back in school with you again next year.

Have a great summer and keep in touch.

Mr. Heck


Hi 3rd graders!

Thank you for such an incredible year, you are awesome! I hope your summer is full of fun and ice cream (my favorite)! I know you will be amazing 4th graders because you are smart, kind, and can do anything you put your mind to! Like Mystery Doug says, stay curious!"

Ms. Schroettner


Dear Mrs. Cruz's class,

It has been such a blessing to be your teacher this year!

I could not be any more proud of all of your hard work and how much you have learned and grown. I miss you so much, but I am so glad we will be looping together next year!

I hope you have a wonderful summer filled with lots of reading and adventures!

Love,

Mrs. Cruz


To Our Junior Kindergarten Friends:

We hope you and your family have a happy and safe summer vacation!

Take time to play outside, read a book, and have fun every day!

We miss you and can’t wait to be together again in Kindergarten!

Dear students,

I am truly sorry that we couldn't spend our last quarter in the classroom together.

However, this was an excellent opportunity to learn in a new way, and challenge both students and teachers, I want to thank you for your continued efforts and dedication to learning.

I hope everyone has a safe and fun filled summer!

Sincerely,

Mr. Hoey


Eighth Graders,

I know the year didn’t end how you expected. I wish we would have had more time to spend together and make more memories. As the year comes to a close I want to wish you all the best as you head into high school and remind you to

keep your feet on the ground and

keep reaching for the stars!

Mrs. Brungraber


Have a great summer Wildcats and keep creating!

I miss you and can’t wait to see you all next year!

Mrs. Hill


I know the year was abruptly cut short, but I have been honored to have had the opportunity to spend my year surrounded by such incredibly gifted, talented, and wonderful students who have such an unlimited potential for greatness! Always remember that you are special and Don’t Forget to Read! Have a great summer, Wildcats!
