MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL DIANNE CARTER

Happy Thursday, WRMS Families!


Yes!  Spring Break is next week!!!  So...it's been yet another great week to be a Wildcat.  I've been wearing a little orange ribbon all week because one of our student groups has helped everyone focus on celebrating diversity this week.  I loved the video that they shared with Wildcat Times to help us think about realizing that there are many ways that we are all different - and that is GOOD.  What I love most is that this was completely student lead. I also got to watch some of our health kids save lives earlier this week! They were learning CPR and how to use an AED from some of our WHS kids that are part of the CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) organization.  Then there's our band who b

rought home lots of superior ratings from their contest this week! Congrats to all of them for their hard work and success! Last but not least, I loved that I got to see a PE class this week that had a portion of the lesson dedicated to the idea of having a "Plan B" in life.  As usual, there were plenty of good things going on that provided many moments of joy.


Now a few information items:

 

  • 8th graders!  On Monday (3/25) our 8th graders have the privilege of going to WHS to hear Eva Schloss speak.  She is a holocaust survivor who was the stepdaughter of Otto Frank. This is an incredible opportunity to hear history first hand.
  • CROATIA - NEW DATE- AND A DEFINITE GO - Was your family wanting to go to Croatia but couldn't travel on the 4th of July?  Our travel date was moved slightly! We now depart on June 20 and return on July 1. This trip is a DEFINITE GO and final payments are due in April...Note that this trip is for student + parent or family. Here's the trip info, below! Contact Carol Reese for more info or to register!  carolreesegt@gmail.com            gateway.gocollette.com/link/934690
  • Update iPads!  You received a separate email earlier this week, but here's a reminder to remind your Wildcat to update her/his iPad over Spring Break!

 

We are about to have a whole week off.  It is a welcome time to pause, breathe, soak up some sun (I hope), relax and recharge so that we can finish the year strong.  


Enjoy!
