WMS Calendar
Westside Community Schools is now using a Google calendar system.  We are no longer using the calendar embedded on our District website.  We hope the new calendar system will provide you easier access to our school information.

Student Laptop Information
Instead of attending a laptop meeting, we have created a short tutorial video (about 20 min.) that both parents and students are expected to watch together, but the time which you watch the video will be your choice.  Our goal is to issue student laptops to all students by August 14. In order to have a student laptop issued, 3 things must happen:
 
1. 2015-16 WMS single-sheet Response form (front and back) needs to be completed and returned to the main office on or before the first day of school. The Response form can be mailed, hand delivered during Orientation or turned into your student's Advisory Teacher on the first day of school.
 
2. Completed laptop assessment (online). Student laptop tutorial and assessment can be found at /http://area66.westside66.org/wmstech/  (active July 24, 2015)
 
3. Complete and return the Acknowledgement of Receipt of the Student Handbook (mailed home with the Student and Parent Handbook)
 
To help ensure your student will be issued a laptop the first week of school, the required forms must be turned in prior to the first day of school and may be turned in during Orientation as well.
Student Orientation

Please save the following dates for WMS Student Orientation. All students and parents are invited to attend.

July 30th: 10 a.m.. – 6 p.m.

Remember, an adult must accompany you in order for you to participate in WMS 7th and 8th Grade Fall Orientation. 7th or 8th grade students may attend either day to accomplish all of the planned activities. If paying by check please understand that multiple checks may be needed. If you are unable to make it to orientation, don’t worry. Most of the activities offered during orientation will be taken care of the first day of school.
