Parents and Guardians please consider donating at our annual blood drive this Friday, February 2 from 2:15 to 6:00 in the small gym at West Middle School. If we reach our goal WMS will receive a grant to be used for items that benefit all students.  The Student Leadership students have been working hard to find donors, and we are getting close to our goal.  Remember every donation helps save 3 lives, so come be a hero this Friday!  If you have any questions please contact Mrs. Castillo by email at Thank you for your consideration.


The sixth grade teachers and students would appreciate if everyone could turn in any Box Tops they have been collecting at home: 6th graders can bring their Box Tops to their homeroom teacher, and 7th and 8th graders can bring their Box Tops to the main office. Every Box Top counts!
