Happy Thursday, Wildcat Families!!!

I hope you all are enjoying the rain and cooler days as much as I am.  While I was at the 7th grade football game on Monday, I was actually thankful that I still had my blazer on!  I just got back to my office from checking out a few minutes of one of our social studies classes, and it was amazing!  They are creating a colony in this class and will then be met with challenges that their colony will need to adapt to in order to survive.  Through this process they will learn at a deeper level than many just what must exist and be true in a civilization in order to continue to thrive.  In addition, they are learning how to work together as a team both effectively and efficiently. The level of excitement and focus in that room was phenomenal.  This was one of my greatest moments of joy this week.

Now for a few information items:


  • Wildcat Night Out!  Tomorrow (9/14) from 6:30pm - 8:30pm our Wildcats are welcome to come and join us for an evening of fun!  Whether your student wants to dance, play some games, take a pic at the photo booth, or enjoy pizza with their friends, this is the place to do it!  Click THIS LINK to see a flyer with all the information about how to get a wristband!


  • Keeping our Kids Safe - If you drive your student to or from school, please do be careful.  I know the hill on Scenic Bluff off of Creeks Edge Parkway is easy to go down too fast, but please keep an eye out for our kids.  We do have walkers both in the morning and afternoon, so please pay close attention and observe the 20mph School Zone.


  • Campus Leadership Team (CLT) - The CLT is a group that will meet approximately once a month that consists of parents, community members, business representatives, staff, and students.  This group will be responsible for approving any large changes on campus and the campus budget among other items. We are looking for 2 parents, 2 community representatives, and 2 business representatives.  Please click THIS LINK if you are interested in joining the CLT fun and complete the short form.


As we wrap up this week, I hope you have a chance to think back on your best laughs this week, and I hope to see your kids at the Wildcat Night Out tomorrow!

Career Day


When your talents match with doing something you love, your success is a special story to tell. It is not often when a career fully satisfies a person's soul - you literally love what you do; you're good at it; you're passionate about it. If this is you, the WRMS Career Day committee would like to invite you to tell your story to our 8th-grade students at Career Day Thursday morning November 15th from 8:35-10:20 am. By donating less than two hours of your time, you will inspire a child and potentially put them on a path of similar talents, gifts, and interests such as yours. In just 10 minutes, presenting to a small group of students, you can describe what you do, demonstrate the skills the job needs, mentor them on daily responsibilities, and recount how and when you knew this was what you were meant to be doing. If you have any questions or need more information to help with your decision to share your time and talents with the students, please do not hesitate to contact Career Day Chair Patricia Baumhart at
