The first 2018 Season of Giving bake sale!!

MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL DIANNE CARTER

 

Happy Thursday, Wildcat Families!

 

It's been another great week to be a Wildcat!  Let's see… We got to give our student leaders of each WCT their families for the Season of Giving on Tuesday.  It was incredible to see our kids so excited as they started strategizing about how to get their families taken care of.  Thanks so much to those of you helping make this happen! Then on Tuesday afternoon our 8th graders got to hear from Tyler Campbell.  If you have an 8th grader, you should ask them what his three principles to live by are. And...you should share with them what you see as your purpose.  What is your passion and your reason for being?  It's a great thing for all of us to remember/realize - regardless of our age.  Last but not least, our 8th graders got to enjoy the career fair today! I love the format used here at WRMS.  I heard some very meaningful and engaging exchanges between professionals and our kids. A huge thank you to our parents who helped organize the event and/or served as a presenter.  We couldn't do it without you! (Click THIS LINK for more info.)


Now for a few info items:

 

  • Season of Giving - I am sure many of you have already done some shopping with your Wildcat to get gifts for the family adopted by their WCT, or maybe your Wildcat is working on creating something for them.  That is awesome since it is a quick turn-around! Collection day will be next Thursday (12/6). Check out more detailed information in the flyers below.
  • Happiness - I came across an interesting article about teen happiness and how it correlates with different activities.  Check it out at THIS LINK.
  • Intersection/Crosswalk - When you are dropping your Wildcat off in the mornings, please be super careful as you approach and proceed through the intersection at the entrance of the school.  There are many moving parts, and the more you can be very aware and use your signals, the better! We really like our teachers that serve as crossing guards and all of our kids.  We don't want any of them to be squished!

 

I hope you all find a way to get outside at some point this weekend.  It should be beautiful! Above all, take advantage of some down time with those you love.  

 

Enjoy!


Dianne Carter

WELCOME BACK

 

We hope everyone enjoyed the long Thanksgiving break with family and friends. Just one more THANK YOU for all who participated in Pie Day. Thanks to you, we were able to provide delicious pies to all of our WRMS staff as well as show our support to the Loving Libbie Memorial Foundation. Thanks again to Kit Abney-Spelce for heading up this effort!

 

 

CAREER DAY

 

Today was a big day for our 8th graders. We were fortunate to have almost 40 parent presenters come in this morning and share a little of their time, talent and expertise introducing our students to some of the career possibilities available in this great big world. Hopefully, your Wildcat will have some interesting things to share over dinner tonight. Thank you to Patricia Baumhart and Melissa Rones for organizing a fantastic event. And thanks to all of the volunteers who make things like this possible.
