National Hispanic Heritage Month…Did You Know?
Hispanic Heritage Week was started by President Lyndon Johnson in 1968. It was then later expanded to a whole month under President Ronald Reagan in 1988. In moving this celebration to a full month, the United States is better able to pay tribute to the generations of Hispanic and Latin Americans who have positively influenced and enriched our nation and society.
Thought of the Week
When you talk, you are often repeating something that you already know. When you listen, you often learn something new. Consider truly listening to your parents, teachers, coaches, friends, siblings, etc. They can teach you new things!
Battle of the Books
Do you love to read? Do you enjoy talking about books? If you are into both, then Battle of the Books is for you! Battle of the Books is a team competition where WMS competes against teams from Heritage and Memorial to see which middle school team knows the books better. See Mrs. Fout in the Media Center for more information. Or just come to an informational meeting in the Media Center during your lunch periods on Friday, October 1st to learn more.
No Guests on Buses Anymore
At this time, due to the crowded buses, we can no longer accept guests on buses. If and when things change, we will let you know.
World Gratitude Day
September 21st was World Gratitude Day. Did you know that there are many benefits that are associated with giving gratitude. In fact, it is actually good for your own health too. Being thankful results in a whole host of emotional and physical benefits. For instance, you can boost your immune system, and lower stress levels. So try to work on your attitude of gratitude, the benefits can go a long way!
Girls’ Basketball Open Gyms

8th Grade Football:
The 8th grade football team defeated Dublin Sells on Thursday by a score of 28-14. The Cats were led by Dayne Schmidt, Josh Diblasio, and Logan Buck who each scored offensively for the Cats. The defense played well, led by Tristan Ford and Kaden Windham, who had a defensive TD. The next game for the Cats is Thursday at Dublin Davis.
7th Grade Football:
The 7th grade football team lost a tough one to Sells last Wednesday. The cats played a great game in the rain and the mud but fell short of the victory. Noah Johnson scored the only points for the Wildcats with a 60 yard touchdown run. This week, the Cats are home and take on Dublin Davis. Come out and support your 7th grade Wildcat football team!
Great job WMS Cheerleaders during your performance during Friday’s game at Davidson!

Winning their Exhibition Match were Julia Hughes & Sam Peterson. Last Thursday, the girls competed against UA Hastings and lost a close battle. Madison Kline fought back on the 1st Singles Court to win in a tiebreaker and Keely Guffey was able to hold off her opponent on the 2nd Singles Court. Clare Carter and Bella Thiel dominated their opponent in an Exhibition Match. All athletes did their best against their opponents and the weather. Way to go Cats!
7th Grade Volleyball:
Last week, the 7th Grade Volleyball Team played twice. On Monday at Worthington Perry, strong serves from all the girls, and great sets from Caitlin Chenalt and Maddy Lahmers helped lead the team to a big win. On Wednesday, it was a hard fought battle against Heritage, but the Cats lost in three sets. Even with the loss, the girls played an amazing game with excellent serving from Jade Struder and Sophie Smith and incredible passing from Lexi Tracy and Addi Nadler. Today, the Cats travel to Hastings, and on Wednesday, the Cats face off against Memorial. Great job Cats, and good luck this week!

Both the Boys’ and Girls’ teams ran last Tuesday against Dublin Sells. In this meet, the Cats girls won, while the boys lost by just one point.
