Instructional Materials

Middle School Instructional materials are still available for pick up next week from 8am - 2pm. If your son will be in the building they will receive their materials during the school day. If you have any materials from 1st, 2nd, or 3rd quarter please return them to campus before the end of the year.

 

PTSA Update

The PTSA raised over $5000 this past fall due to the very generous donations of our families. We are spending a portion of that money on painting the interior of the school. Thanks to all the hard work of PTSA volunteers, Michelle Zeren and Jackie Boggs, along with school administration we have selected a painting company, submitted the required paperwork to the county, and will hopefully get the painting underway soon. We are super excited to see our school's fresh new look.

 

Families, just a reminder that we partnered with Graphic Evolution this year to update our spiritwear offerings and give families the flexibility to purchase new items any time throughout the year. You can check out WYMLA gear at wymlastore.com

 

Our next meeting is Monday April 12. Be on the lookout in MemberHub for a meeting agenda and Zoom link. 

 

In order for the PTSA to plan the  approximate order #of T-shirts for this virtual fitness event, please indicate whether or not your son might participate.  We are asking families to donate $25 to participate in this virtual fitness challenge and students will receive a T-shirt.  The event will occur April 19th-30th and is a fundraiser for PTSA.  The official sign up link will be posted on our WYMLA website. You can indicate if your son will participate in the event by clicking this link.
