Parents/Guardians,

Please remind your child(ren), they still need to wear a mask when riding the school bus.

Vaccination Reminder

If you have a child who will be entering 7th grade in the fall of 2021, please be aware of the immunization requirements mandated by the Ohio Department of Health:

Students entering 7th grade:

  • One dose of Tdap (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis) vaccine
  • One dose of MCV4 (meningitis) vaccine

Parents/guardians are being notified now in order to have ample time to complete these requirements. Ohio Law allows a 14-day period for compliance after the first day of school. If a student does not obtain the required vaccinations and provide written documentation to the school, the school will exclude that student on the 15th day until it is completed.

Please schedule an appointment with your child’s primary care provider to receive these vaccinations or contact Hamilton County Public Health (513-946-7882) to find out how to receive these vaccinations at little or no cost.

Immunization records can be dropped off at the school, faxed to 513-206-7245 or emailed to joneske@wyomingcityschools.orgThank you!

GREAT NEWS FROM WMS ART DEPARTMENT!

Madeline Frank (8th grade) and Alexandra (Alee) Wenzel (7th Grade) from Wyoming Middle School were selected to show their work at the Cincinnati Art Museum for their 10×10 2021 Teen Exhibit.  Both students created their work digitally.  Madeline created Extraterrestrail Ornamentation and Alee made What Space Is? (Please see the attached images)

 Students who entered were asked to create work within a 10×10 size constraint that depicted the theme of “Space” whether it be personal space, outerspace or their own interpretation. 100 art works will be on display from students around the city of various ages and schools.  Opening night will be on a Space themed costume party on the Art Climb on Thursday, May 6th from 5:30-7:30 p.m. outdoors on the Art Climb next to the Museum’s parking lot. The celebration will include art making, a costume contest and other activities.  The 10×10 Teen Exhibit will be on display to the general public in the Great Hall of the Cincinnati Art Museum from May 6th through May 9th.  The museum is open 11 – 5pm Tuesday through Sunday, and 11-8pm on Thursdays.  Admission is free, but a reservation is required.

Izzie Stockton (8th grade) won 2nd place in her division (of 7/8 graders) for this year’s Jerry Tollifson Art Criticism Open.  Her art criticism piece was on the painting, Scorched Earth by artist Mark Bradford. There were 80 entries from all over the state of Ohio submitted.  Students were given a painting to write about and were judged on their observation skills and thoughtful writing.

AIR TESTING INFORMATION

April, 2021

Dear Parent/Guardian,

The Ohio Department of Education in it’s Reset and Restart plan requires that students in grades 5,6,7, and 8, take the AIR assessments.  These assessments are in the areas of English/Language Arts, Math, and Science.

State achievement tests tell us how well our students are growing in the knowledge and skills outlined in Ohio’s Learning Standards.  These tests help guide and strengthen future teaching so we can be sure that we are preparing our students for long-term success in school, college, career and life.  Test results also allow citizens to know how their local schools are preforming compared to others around the state.

Due to technology and test security requirements, there is not an option to remotely administer state tests.  All testing must be done in person with a test administrator who is an employee of Wyoming City Schools, with a license issued by the Ohio Department of Education.  As the principal of Wyoming Middle School, my first and foremost concern is for the safety of our students.  Therefore, assessments will only occur in a safe environment.  Remote learning students will need to come into school from 8:20 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. on testing days.  Remote learning students will be testing in the music rooms, following all CDC guidelines.  If you have questions or concerns about having your remote student in person for testing, please reach out to your child’s counselor,  Ms. Hilgenberg (hilgenbergh@wyomingcityschools.org) counselor for 6th & 7th grades, and  Mr. Allred (allredj@wyomingcityschools.org) counselor for grades 5th & 8th grades.

Below are the dates and times for testing:

                Grades 5 – 8    English/Language Arts            April 13 & 14       8:30 – 10:30

                Grades 5 – 8    Math                                           April 20 & 21       8:30 – 10:30

                Grades 5 & 8   Science                                       April 27 & 28       8:30 – 10:30

Additional helpful testing tips:

  • Please be sure your child gets plenty of sleep
  • Be certain your child eats a healthy, well-balanced breakfast
  • Have your child to school by 8:15 a.m.; do not schedule appointments for your child on testing days
  • Remind your child that cell phones and smart watches are prohibited in the testing rooms
  • Help us by making sure your child’s Chromebook is charged the night before the test to ensure proper battery life

Sincerely,

Jennifer Klein                                                                            Michael Anderson

Jennifer Klein                                                                                                       Michael Anderson

Principal                                                                                                                Assistant Principal
