The WMS library serves approximately 430 students in grades 6-8. The primary mission of the library is to support the curriculum of the school. The library contains approximately 7,000 age-appropriate items to fulfill this mission.

Students may have two books checked out at any one time. Books are checked out for two weeks. They may be renewed for an additional two weeks. There is a ten-cents-per-day fine for overdue books. A 3-day grace period is given in which students may return an overdue book without penalty.


Mission Statement

Westmoreland Middle School’s highly qualified teachers engage students through quality instruction based on the Tennessee standards and guide them toward becoming an integral part of the school and community. School leaders embrace their roles and conduct themselves with honesty, transparency, and respect. Collaboration among grade-level teams and content-area teachers is essential to achieving student success. We hone our craft through participation in Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) as well as other learning opportunities to meet the changing needs of all students. Resources are easily accessible by all educators for use in quality instruction and when collaborating with other schools within the district.
