Hello, WRMS Families!!!


I hope you all enjoyed your three day weekend AND have had a great slightly shorter week so far. It has been another great week to be a Wildcat! One of my moments of joy that stands out the most was watching our 7th grade science kids as they were dissecting perch one day this week! was a little stinky, but it was interesting to see the different ways that different groups went about it. Some were so careful...and some were just digging in! All were very engaged in learning about the different parts of the fish. Another little moment was simply walking down the hall listening to one of our 6th graders tell another teacher about a story they had written in ELA. She was very excited and proud to talk about it - so refreshing. Last but not least, Ms. Catalano and I went to BCE this morning to talk to our incoming 6th grade parents for the 2019-20 school exciting!!! The trip into next year has started!

Now for a few information items:


  • Another Robotics team was rockin' last weekend! "The Moonwalkers" finished 2nd in their tournament and will get to compete for the Central Texas Regional Championship!
  • Science Fair - Tomorrow (1/25) at 4:15 we will have a screening of Science Fair in the cafeteria. Come check it out! Click this link for more information.
  • Live Streaming Events! One of our students has decided that it would be cool if WRMS events could be live streamed so that we can check them out even if we are not here, and he is making it happen! You can access his YouTube channel at THIS LINK. He is live streaming most Band, Choir, and Orchestra Concerts. He is also live streaming some Sports activities (at WRMS) and maybe some other activities like robotics competitions. Check out the 7th grade boys' basketball game on 1/31!


Just in case you haven't realized it, February is right around the corner.  That means that everyone will be working on making some choices for next year!  Our 8th graders will work with HS counselors, our current 6th and 7th graders will work with our counselors, and we have several things planned for our incoming 6th graders.  If your Wildcat is in the 6th or 7th grade, mark your calendar for February 12th. That will be our information meeting for you guys. More details next week!

Get some rest this weekend, and…
