Fall Fundraiser Update ...

All orders were delivered to students/parents on Wednesday 12/07.  However, the cookie dough bites have been delayed.  They will arrive on Monday 12/12.  Also, on Monday 12/12, we plan to discuss possible dates for the DJ Party and the distribution of prizes.  

 
Westmoreland Middle School:  Hoops for Heart Event ...
Thank you to all who made this a HUGE success.  250 students plus brought in donations to help the American Heart Association and they were able to participate in basketball and dodgeball and have free time as a way to encourage them to be more active.  Overall $3521 was raised to help the American Heart Association.  Also, the school earned several prizes and money that will be used in physical education.
 
 
Westmoreland Music Academy ...
The Westmoreland Music Academy is a new opportunity for all Westmoreland students and parents 4th--12th grades to learn about music at an EXTREMELY discounted rate.  The Westmoreland Music Academy will be opening in January, but YOU need to make plans now if you wish to participate.  Information about the Academy may be found in the North Wing Office  or you may contact Mrs. Peterson at school or by the following e-mails:

Pictures Needed ...

Since I can not be everywhere all the time, I need your help.  If you are at a game or a program or WMS event and if you happen to take some pictures, please send me a copy of some so I may post them on the website.  I try to take and post some, but I do not always get the best shot.  Therefore, if you have a good picture, please send me a copy and I will try my best to get it on the website.

 

Reading Rocks Program ...

Every 1st Friday of the month during RTI/EXP classes students will read the entire 45 minutes.  The next school-wide reading day is Friday 01/06/17.  The purpose of this is to encourage students to read more because reading will make you smarter.  (If you would like more specifics about how reading may increase intelligence, then please contact one of our ELA teachers for details.)  In the meantime, please READ, READ, READ!!!
