"Let's Paint this Town!" WMS students are literally painting the town at our school and area businesses. The Window Painting e-Time group began to answer the essential question: "How can we develop pride in our school and community?"

As a group, they researched ideas for their own window design. Next, they collaboratively developed their unique creation, message, and template. This week, they were excited to begin working on their project. While driving through town, we hope that you enjoy their designs and hopefully catch a little Tiger Pride!

Thanks for checking in,
Amelia Yates, WMS Assistant Principal
