From the Principal's Desk

Friday, October 17, 2014

Middle school has been full of school spirit this week. Students organized 5 spirit days: Disney characters, crazy selfie day, fake injury, Netflix character day, and black and white day. Many students participated in these fun spirit filled days. Check out a few of the photos below.

At the end of each quarter, the individual team of teachers work to develop a time to recognize students. Today was the first time teams met with their groups of students. During this time they got a chance to recognize students for all the wonderful things they do as well as create team unity.



Thanks for checking in,
Amy Sims, WMS Principal
