Upcoming Dates

8th Grade Panoramic Picture

The WSMS 8th grade class of 2022 will be taken on Wednesday, May 18th. Panoramic pictures will be on sale during all lunches on Thursday, May 19. Please go here for more information.

Final Exam Reviews – Available Wednesday, May 18th

On Wednesday, May 18th, teachers will provide students with a copy of the final exam review.  In addition, an electronic copy will be posted in Google Classroom for students to access on Wednesday, May 18th.  

Teachers will be going over their review in class prior to the final exam. Each review will provide vocabulary, concepts, and/or skills needed to be successful on the final. Students will be expected to take the information from the review and apply it to questions on the exam that include graphs, charts, maps, diagrams, and excerpts. These application based questions provide a foundation for the level of thinking that aligns with the higher level thinking of our state standards in middle school and high school. Rather than studying the review for 2-3 hours the night before the final exam, we encourage students to prepare for each exam by studying for approximately 15-20 minutes a day. In addition, students should refer to notes, handouts, assignments, and their textbook to support their learning and preparation.

Yearbook Signing Party Volunteers – Calling All Dads (and Moms)!

On the morning of May 27th the school is requesting several volunteers to supervise the yearbook signing and associated party, which will relieve teachers to finish their year-end wrap-up prior to their other afternoon responsibilities. They specifically would like to encourage DADS to come out that morning and engage with kids on the field and in the gym. Please sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70a0445acaf2ea75-wsms6
