PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

WMS Parents and Guardians,

What a fantastic year we have had at West Middle School this year! Our 7th and 8th graders have worked hard all year long, and I look forward to their next steps! As our 8th graders are getting ready for Byron Center High School, we are confident they will do great things as they move forward in their time at BCPS and beyond. We are also excited for our 7th graders to be leaders at WMS next year and to welcome our incoming 6th grade class.

There have been many amazing things taking place at WMS this school year. Our math department implemented their new Big Ideas math curriculum and all of the amazing online resources that went with it. Our science teachers worked with the new Next Generation Science Standards through their new IQWST curriculum and really jumped into the inquiry and investigation process. Our ELA teachers led our students to read thousands of books. Our history department prepared students through not only classroom teaching, but historical activities outside of the classroom that our students will remember their entire life. Our co-curricular courses took home art and music prizes, increased student health and fitness, and helped put on a wonderful play and magical musical. Our students sure have been busy, and our staff here at WMS has appreciated all of your communication and support in order to prepare and implement all of the amazing teaching and activities!

Preparing your son or daughter for their next step and helping them create an individual path to success is our goal each and every day.  As you reflect upon this last school year, please provide me any feedback that would be helpful in achieving the goal of success for your son or daughter.  Educating and preparing all of our students is a partnership, and as principal of West Middle School, I am always looking to improve this process.

Once again, thank you for an amazing year at West Middle School.  I look forward to seeing everyone around West and BC in the coming months as we prepare for the 2018/2019 school year.   

Jeff Wierzbicki
