Rockets Flying In Mrs. Blome's Science Class
Every May, the sky's around WMS are filled with water rockets launching on our property. Students begin by researching design of the rockets, build prototypes, test and redesign.
WWII Veteran Speaks To Students

Katarina Wilson, 8th grader at WMS, invited her grandfather, Roy Long, who is a WWII veteran to speak to her American History class. He talked to the students about his role in WWII, which included fighting in Europe, liberating a concentration camp, and working at the Nuremberg Trials after the war.

ProjectCSGirls Regional Winner

Emma Carlson, 8th grader at WMS, was selected as a State and Regional Winner for the ProjectCSGirls Competition.  For this competition, she created an interactive mobile app that educates others about the issue of human trafficking.  She will now go to Washington, DC for the 2015 ProjectCSGirls National Gala on June 6-7 to compete for the National Winner.  Check out the ProjectCSGirls website for all the State and Regional Winners.

WMS Career Day

Career Day is an exceptional event supported by our district as part of career education for eighth graders.  On May 8, students began their day in homeroom by learning information about service learning, a requirement for high school graduation that can begin during the summer after eighth grade.  Then, they attended keynote presenters, Dr. Angela Hewlett and Karen Rossier, nurse, who have treated Ebola patients at UNMC.  During the remainder of the morning, students participated in three sessions (identified through the results of an interest inventory) involving more than 30 career presenters from our community.  Volunteer Council members dedicated numerous hours to arrange the morning session presenters. Students, parents and eighth grade homeroom teachers collaboratively arranged individual job shadows, based upon student choice, for the afternoon.  

 

Thank you to the morning session presenters, below, who shared real-world information representing careers within the 16 clusters (see NebraskaCareerConnections.org). We extend additional thanks to hundreds of business professionals in our community who also offered their expertise and experience to our students during their afternoon job shadows!
