On Saturday, our eighth grade Warriors basketball team hosted the championship tournament and took the win.  If you see these student athletes, congratulate them and let them know how proud we are of them.


Coach Mike Davis would also like to give a huge shoutout to the parents and fans at Saturday afternoon's game.  Their enthusiasm and support helped rally the boys to victory.


It's great to be a WMS Warrior!

Mrs. Greer Harvell works hard to ensure her students learn through as many hands-on STEM experiences as possible.  This week, Sea Perch students built rovs, while eighth grade science students explored pH and suspensions.  Science makes so much more sense when it is interactive and collaborative.
