PTSA “Run For Your Life” Fundraiser
"Run For Your Life" brings in funding PTSA uses to support fun things at WMS. We had a fantastic turnout for this event. In fact, we had over 1400 miles logged by students and staff.
The amazing WMS Staff worked together to set up “Skyward Scheduler” for families. Also, our teachers and office staff talked with families directly to help them schedule conferences. The result is an effective, time-saving way for families to schedule and re-schedule conferences according to their time. Families have told us this was especially useful when they have multiple students at WMS.
Students in Horticulture and Art classes are working together with WSD Facilities and CTE on a beautifying project in our outdoor breezeway/eating area! The outdoor breezeway/eating area already looks amazing with new bright lights, paint, and clean-up from this past summer. It is a popular area for our students now. I am looking forward to seeing the art and landscaping efforts; it will look even better!
WMS Social Media
We have a bunch of "Shares" and over 400 "Likes" on our WMS Facebook page. We are aiming to get to “500” likes by December 2016! This is such a useful and FUN way to get information and fun happenings out to the public. If you haven't yet, please "Like" and "Share" us on Facebook here. You could also follow us on Twitter here and Instagram here! We put information and many cool updates on these social media outlets.
