We are fortunate to have start-up funds to begin a middle school level robotics programs at WMS in the fall. We hope that this will be an enriching experience in the sciences for some of our students. We are seeking assistance with two things. First, if you are a parent/guardian who has an engineering or techinical background and have an interest in providing some mentoring to young students, please send your name to Mr. Mike Munley or Mrs. Jennifer Abdella so that we might include your expertise as we start the program next fall. Second, we also must seek sponsorships to build our robot and our program. If you own or know of a firm that might like to invest in young students and support this venture, we would appreciate sponsorships. If you are an individual who believes in this venture and wishes to make a donation to the program, we gladly and gratefully welcome your support!
YEARBOOKS: If you would like a 2014-2015 West Middle School yearbook, be sure to PRE-ORDER it before September 28th. The cost of a pre-ordered yearbook is $30. Only a limited number of yearbooks will be available for cash-and-carry sale in June and the cost at that time will be $38. To order a yearbook now, visit jostensyearbooks.com. Informational flyers with full details are available in the Main Office, if you didn’t pick one up at schedule pick-up or Open House.
CURIOSITY ACADEMY: Seventh and eighth grade girls, are you interested in learning about science and technology? Curiosity Academy is an off-campus after-school club being sponsored by Kettering University, The University of Michigan-Flint, and Longway Planetarium. Participants will work in groups as companies developing a science project resulting in a new product. Girls in the program will learn about several different roles in the process including learning about the chemicals used; making, testing, and reformulating the product; and marketing the product. The goal of the project is to demonstrate how science applies in several career paths and to show what working in a science field is actually like. If interested, please ask your counselor, math teacher, or science teacher for a brochure. Brochures are also available in the Main Office. Applications for the Curiosity Academy are due by Wednesday, October 15th.
