7/8th girls basketball and wrestlers need to bring their uniforms/equipment/practice gear to school on Wed, 12/19 and turn it in after school. The coaches are not WMS employee’s and are taking time off away from their jobs to come to the school and get the equipment checked in. It is vital that players are there after school on 12/19 to get the stuff turned in. If this is not possible, please contact the coach and make other arrangements to get the equipment turned in. Thanks.

Sixth grade math students are learning how to compute the mean, median, mode, and range using Skittles. They are collecting data from their own bag of Skittles and then from a partner. Then the two partners collect from another two partners. Then the group of four collects and organizes the data and continues to find the mean, median, mode and range. The group of four finds another group of four for the final computations. The students were then allowed to eat the Skittles after completing all the math work. GO DEMONS!!! #WMSDEMONS
