During Teacher Appreciation Week, Mr. Dennie Smith’s eighth grade AVID students expressed heartfelt gratitude for teachers who have gone above and beyond for them at WMS.  All good teachers know that teaching is a calling, not just a profession.  It warms their hearts when students recognize their sacrifices and commitments as they pour into the future. Thank you, AVID students!

FES is piloting a new program this spring and will fully implement it next year. WatchD.O.G. Dads (Dads of Great Students)is a program designed to get fathers involved in the school as another set of eyes and hands. Dads are encouraged to volunteer one day during the year to assist with activities and events and in the classroom to encourage education and to provide positive role models for the students. We look forward to fully implementing the program next year.

Pictured above is our first dad-Chris Moore with his son.
