Dear Parents of Rising Track 4 8th Graders!

th (2)

Your child’s last year of middle school is about to begin-can you believe it?! We would like to celebrate these students and create a memorable year for their last year at WLMS. For their first day of school, we would like to have a celebratory breakfast for our students in the outside classroom and courtyard. Students will eat breakfast, socialize, and have time to get to know their new teachers. After breakfast, teachers and students will walk to the Media Center for a special speaker to “launch” them into their new school year. 8th grade teachers will then escort them down in a celebratory and special way to their 8th grade hall for their first day of classes. Students have designed their own t-shirt, hashtag, and theme for the year. Order forms for shirts will be available at Wildcat Walk Through on 7/26/18. We will continue to have fun and memorable experiences throughout the year to celebrate our 8th graders and get them excited about school…..but to do this, we need your help! For the breakfast, we need donations of breakfast foods and set up/take down volunteers. Please see the sign up genius below to help out! If you ever want to get in touch with Mrs. Rogers about any ideas you have for our students or to get involved, please email her directly. She would be happy to work with you on any suggestions on how to make this a memorable year for our kids.

Ways you can Help…


We are still looking for a few good people to help fill out the PTSA positions next year. Volunteering doesn’t mean a huge time commitment. An hour or two a semester makes a big difference. And we have jobs to fit your time schedule and interests. We even have tasks that don’t involve coming to the school at all!

If you can volunteer any time for the following, please email us!

Cultural Arts

Reflections Art Competition .

School Store (Mon & Wed mornings)

School Improvement Committee (Every other Monday)

Student Recognitions .

Audit Committee
