STRING PARENTS

Dear string parents,

Welcome back!  We are looking forward to another successful and fulfilling year of string education.  Fifth grade parents, it’s wonderful to have your child at the middle school.  To best stay in contact with you, please take a moment to fill out an online information sheet.  I’m including the link in this post.

 Your child will be bringing home our WMS strings handbook which should answer most of your questions about the year in strings.  In it you will find a permission slip for our trip to the CSO at Music Hall and information about the Essential Elements method book for grades 5 and 6.  I will also include a link where you can purchase our performance polo as well as spirit wear!  If your child’s polo still fits there is no need to order a new one.  Fifth grade parents, however, your child will need a polo shirt for orchestra performances. 

 Looking forward to making music! Please contact us with any questions

 Laura Coomer 513-206-7170 X7194        Lynn Denney 513-206-7170   X7189

From the Wyoming School Music Association
It’s time to sell Chip Wheelies for WSMA!
WSMA (Wyoming School Music Association) supports the music programs in our schools from Kindergarten through High School. If you have an hour or two to volunteer, we can use your help!
WSMA sells Graeter’s Chip Wheelies at home football games and all the school concerts. These ice cream sandwiches are a huge favorite with the kids (and adults). It’s easy! We handle the ordering and delivery of Chip Wheelies to a special freezer at the High School. We’ll supply you with signage, a cash box, and instructions. It’s a short time commitment. If you have younger kids who want to attend the football game, you’ll have a good excuse for being there. Concert sales only take about an hour of time.

A NOTE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL

Dear Wyoming Middle School Community,

Thank you for a wonderful school year. I can’t thank everyone enough for your endless hours of volunteering, chaperoning, organizing, donating and doing whatever was necessary to support students—both at home and at school. Special thanks to our PSA who, as usual, went above and beyond the call of duty to provide whatever was necessary to add to our students’ already rich school experience.

A final word to the Middle School students: I am so honored to be your principal; you make me proud to be a Cowboy. You keep me laughing and young at heart. I am grateful for your joy, insights and amazing talents. Best wishes to our graduating eighth graders, whom I will miss greatly!

Everyone have a safe and happy summer break.

Respectfully,
Jennifer Klein

We love our staff at WMS! To show our appreciation last year, we raised enough money to cater a big taco lunch “fiesta.” Something as simple as this made a huge impact. The staff was incredibly appreciative and are still talking about it! Many of them have asked if it’s happening again :). Let’s do it! Feel no obligation, but if you are looking for a way to love on our staff, we would love to raise enough money to surprise them with another fiesta.
If you would like to pitch in, send cash or a check (made out to Wyoming Middle School) in an envelope marked FIESTA to the WMS office by May 17th. You can also contribute to a PayPal Account created just for this:https://paypal.me/pools/c/84bcfuCAUc
