Hello, WRMS Families!!!


Happy Thursday!  I hope you have all had a great week.  I have three things that I HAVE to share with you. First, thank you to all who donated to our Wildcat Club during the No Hassle Fundraiser.  We had 51% of families donate a total of $63,885!!! That is incredible! I promise we will spend it responsibly to give our kids the best experience possible.  Second, one of our custodians and one of our teachers teamed up to identify and relocate a cute, little, harmless garter snake earlier this week. Just one of the thrills of being surrounded by some hill country woods!  It was honestly fun and our athletics girls cheered for them after the successful relocation. Yet another way we take good care of our kids. Last but not least, I LOVED a conversation I had with one of our teachers about how to make it possible for our kids to put apps on their iPads that THEY created!  Look out tech world, here come our Wildcats!

Now for a few information items:


  • Wildcat Club Meeting - Tomorrow (10/5) @ 9:00am in the Library
  • Laura Santos-Farry will be here to share in more detail the things we are doing as a district to keep our kids safe and secure.
  • Our 8th graders will be taking the PSAT next Wednesday (10/10).  Be sure they come well rested, well fed, and with their brains!  Keep an eye out for an email from either Ms. Satterwhite or Ms. Catalano with more detailed information.  Also, they will have little breaks where they can have a snack, so be sure they bring one!
  • Monday (10/8) - No School!
  • Friday (10/5) - No Homework Night!
  • Flu Season - It is upon us…  We all need to get our flu shots!  And… If your Wildcat is sick, please keep them home rather than sending them here to share the germs.  They need rest…


I believe that is about all for this Thursday.  I continue to count my blessings each day. So many things to be grateful for...  I hope you are all able to have a fun and relaxing three-day weekend with some quality family time!
