Happy Thursday, WRMSFamilies!


It has been another great week to be a Wildcat!  I had so much fun Tuesday evening bouncing around to listen to our three choirs who are going to/went to contest today and tomorrow work with clinicians to perfect some of the last little adjustments.  Honestly, it was incredible. They started out sounding really good...and ended up sounding AMAZING. So far, one group brought back Sweepstakes! (Hearing that news this morning gave me goosebumps.) We can't wait to hear how the other two do!!!  


Now a few information items:


  • STAAR is next week -  Next Tuesday our 7th graders will take the STAAR Writing test. On Wednesday, our 8th graders will take the STAAR Reading test. Last but not least, on Thursday students currently in 8th grade Math will take the STAAR Math 8 test. Please simply be aware and help our Wildcats come to test days well rested and well fed.
  • WHS Robotics -  - The WHS Philobots will be competing in the Texas FTC State UIL Championships on April 6 th from 8:30am-6:00pm! For more information CLICK THIS LINK.
  • Clothes - Please help your Wildcat make good decisions about what they wear to school. We only address clothing if it is well out of the realm of appropriate. We do have quite a few kids that have grown over the cooler months, though! So… Please simply help them make good decisions.


I believe that is all for now. I hope you are all able to get some good rest this weekend!

Our final luncheon of the year was served yesterday. Thank you to Genevieve Johnson for coordinating our WRMS Staff Luncheons this year! You have done an AMAZING job! Thank you as well to our fantastic team of volunteers who cook, shop, serve and clean. We couldn't do it without you!

And thank you to Jay Tinney ( for cooking up the chicken and mac and cheese for us. It was so delicious!!!



STAAR Testing is right around the corner and we can't pull it off without your help to make sure our students have a quiet and calm testing environment. We need your help to monitor the halls on April 9-11, May 6, May 13-16.


This is a super easy but very important job, and it's a great way to help make sure testing days go as smoothly as possible for our kids and teachers. Your job will be to ensure that only one student is in the rest room at a time during breaks, and that students waiting in line do not talk. Just check in with the front desk when you arrive and you'll be assigned to a hallway to monitor. There will be a desk where you can sit, so bring your laptop, a book or just enjoy some quiet time!



Teacher Appreciation Week is coming up soon, May 1st  – 3rd (shortened due to 8th grade teachers being out for Pedernales. We are planning lots of fun during this week.  One of the treats we plan to give is a $25 gift card to each staff member as a token of appreciation for their hard work. That's where you come in! We are asking WRMS parents to donate gift cards. You are welcome to select your gift and drop it off in the office during the next few weeks, OR you can purchase through the Wildcat Club. Gift cards are now on sale. Click THIS LINK to make a purchase.
