We are holding our Winter Festival on January 31st out at the Muscatine Municipal Golf Course. From 2:00-3:00pm we are having a Snow Sculpture Contest and the first place prize is going to be a free pool party at the Aquatic Center. I just wanted to extend an invite to West Middle School if students and/or parents want to create a team!   Teams can have up to 10 people.


8th grade girls basketball team should bring $2 to Miss Fox or Mrs. Stutzel for the pizza party by Wednesday, January 28th, if they want pizza at our party on Friday, January 30th.


Lifetouch Spring pictures will be Tuesday, February 24 starting at 8:30am.


The Muscatine-Japan Youth Exchange will be hosting a Trivia Night again this year on Friday, February 6th at 6:30pm at the Iowa State Extension Office (on Isett Ave).  Tickets are $10 per person.  We will have food for sale, and a silent auction.  If you would like to reserve a spot contact Jessica Blanchard or Heather Runyon at WMS.
All money raised from this event will help us host Japanese students in Muscatine for a week this summer.


Attention 7th and 8th graders interested in swimming: There is a sign up sheet in the attendance office and there will be a parent meeting on Monday, January 26 at 5:00pm at the MHS pool. Practice will start February 3 at 6:15 am also at the MHS pool. See Mrs. Hartman in the attendance office for more information. Reminder… you MUST have a physical on file in the attendance office to participate.


Stop by the main office for “2015 Summer Volleyball” registration forms. Deadline to register is May 1st.


The orchestra program is selling Flower Cards again for $25.  This gets you a beautiful bouquet of flowers each month in 2015 from the Flower Gallery. They make excellent gifts!  Email or talk to Jessica if you would like to purchase one.  For each card sold the orchestra program receives $15 so this is what keeps our program funded!

For your convenience all athletic and activity events can now be found on the WMS calendar.  This one stop convenient calendar will make it easy for staff, students and parents to access dates and times for all activities. Just click on the “School Calendar” tab at the top right.


The Attendance Office has purple NIKE athletic bags for sale for $30.00. Stop by to take a look.
