Battle of the Grades Update

Thank you to each and every member of the WVMS family that participated in this year’s “Battle of the Grades” fundraising campaign.  The results are in and the winner is the 7th grade!  The totals were the following:

7th Grade = $7,800

6th Grade = $4,800

8th Grade = $1,800

The overall winner, of course, is our whole school because our students and staff will directly benefit from these generous donations.  On behalf of the WVMS Foundation Board, the Battle of the Grades Committee, and the WVMS Student Council, we sincerely appreciate your direct efforts to share your treasures and gifts with our wonderful staff and students.  More information about how these funds will be used and about how you can get involved/support our annual spring event will be coming soon. 



***8th Grade Baby Pictures for the Yearbook need to be submitted by Friday, December 14. Any picture submitted after this time will not be accepted. Please email pictures to wvmsyearbook1@gmail.com.

Be sure to purchase your yearbook recognition ad! These ads are in the back of the yearbook and are designed to celebrate your student’s success during their middle school years.
