Reflecting on Last Week 

  • The WFHS football team travels to Live Oak for Friday night's game (September 14).  We will not provide live streaming.  Live Oak has an agreement with NFHS Network.  Please click here if you are interested in paying to view the game on-line.
  • Our 1st and 3rd graders received Chromebooks as part of our vision to provide all students access to a computer for any lesson taught at any part of the day.

  • WFMS defeats Northwestern 6-2 on a tremendous defensive play by Delvin Whitaker, defensive end, who scored on a forced fumble. Go Saints!

  • Our 4th graders are setting short and long terms goals.  They are already thinking of their future careers.  The Class of 2027 has big dreams. Xavier Barrow, Bains 4th grader has a goal of becoming a police officer.  Deputy Shelton Scales was kind enough to take some time with Xavier to talk to him about the importance of keeping his dream and to explain the work of police officers. He also showed him the cool tools in his police car! #ClassOf2027
