Wills Point Middle School
is
Shaking off the STAAR



Hi, my name is Anita Nance and I'm the principal at Wills Point Middle School. I am excited about this year and all the opportunities that it brings. At Wills Point Middle School we are earning our tiger stripes each day to become community members of respectable character that use our given strengths to take care of others.

We will challenge every student to do their best academically. Our school creed focuses on "Having the Right Stuff"; which includes showing respect, being an active listener, having good manners, exercising self-control, and practicing good communication! The students at WPMS make this commitment each and every day.  

Our staff philosophy here at WPMS is BIG TEAM, little me: 
TEAM
me


This philosophy allows us, as a staff, to truly work together as a school family. Just remember;  students, together we can achieve great things.  I am looking forward to this upcoming school year of earning and "Showing our Stripes" and hope you are too!

Jump Rope for Heart
Raising Funds for the American Heart Association

Wills Point Middle School is busy with their Jump Rope for Heart campaign! Each year the middle school jumps for the sixth grade science teacher, Mr. Robertson, a heart transplant recipient. The parents have been stopping by their child’s PE class time to watch their student perform amazing feats with a simple jump rope! The goal of the middle school is to raise $3,000 dollars! These funds are used by the American Heart Association for researching life-saving procedures for heart patients. If you are interested in helping the middle school meet their goal then please visit www.heart,org/jump or stop by the middle school to make a donation. 



Sixth Grade Science club 


The Wills Point Middle School, 6th grade Science club were recently invited to attend a lecture by Stephen Ritz. Mr. Ritz is an educator and urban farmer who has transformed portions of the Bronx, New York into a virtual living classroom using aeroponic gardening. Students were treated to an awesome Pizza supper at Campisis' provided by their event sponsor Mrs. Sandy Guest. She had also reserved seating for our group in front of the stage. The science club had purchased a Tower Garden from Mrs. Guest as an ongoing project this year. Before the event students had an opportunity to speak with a horticulturist about how to pollenate and care for their plants. The best part was a motivational talk by Mr. Ritz. At the end he called the students on stage and spent a great deal of time talking and interacting with them. It was exciting and motivational to the point they did not want to leave. Mr. Ritz and many of the adults present constantly praised our students for their manners and great attitude. The group was escorted by 6th grade Science teacher Mr. Robertson and 6th grade ELA teacher Mrs. Tate. For more information on Stephen Ritz google The Green Bronx Machine.

Backpack Program WPMS offers a backpack program for children on our campus that need nourishment during the weekend/Holidays. If you would like to help fill these backpacks, please see the list below.You can also sponsor a child for the year. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Nance.

bars, peanut butter crackers, bottle water, fruit snacks)


School Start Time
Classes at the Middle School begin promptly at 8:00. Your child will receive a tardy slip if they arrive after that time. The cafeteria stops serving breakfast at 7:45.  If your child is a car rider and needs to eat at the school, they must be here by 7:45. The teachers begin lessons at 8:00, so your child is missing valuable learning time by coming to school late. They are also a distraction to the other students when they enter the classroom late. Thank you for making every effort to have your child here on time every day.



Fifth and Sixth Grade Gym Classes
Please send your child to school in tennis shoes on the days that they go to PE.  The teachers are spending every possible minute teaching and are not able to take time out of their busy schedules to allow students to change shoes before and after PE class.  The students are very active in PE and will not be allowed to participate if they are wearing sandals or flip flops.  We appreciate your cooperation in helping us achieve more growth each day.




Fifth Grade Technology
Students in fifth grade technology classes need to have headphones or ear buds to use in technology class.  The sound in the programs we use is beneficial to the development of the skills the students are learning.  Thank you for your continuing support in the achievements of your children.
