WMS Offers Additional Yearbooks
It looks like there was a high demand for 2016-2017 Yearbooks. I would like to see if there is still some interest out there for additional yearbooks and see if we need to reorder another round for sale.
This reorder will be a prepay situation as we need to make sure that we have them all sold before we order additional yearbooks.
Here is the link for the reorder form:

WMS Students Give Back to Their Classmates
The Woodshop students at WMS have finished a project that has allowed for them to give back to their classmates. There was an identified need for equipment that could be used to help our students learn. The woodshop, under the direction of Mr. Kenny Collins, constructed balance boards at the request of another teacher. These balance boards allow for movement while learning and support the learning needs of many students. Each student completed a balance board and then donated them to the school. It is a great way for these students to leave their mark on our fantastic school! Way to go Bulldogs!!!
