Last week our WHMS band, under the direction of new leader, Mr. Coleman, performed at NYSSMA Majors for the first time in school history. After breaking that barrier, they earned a "Silver" award at level 2. They came so far in such a short time thanks to PERSISTENCE! @smurrayLB

WHMS had a special visitor early this morning! We may be the Rams, but this duck made its way from Halls Pond to our front door for a breakfast nibble. A beautiful bit of nature to start our day. @whufsdrams @smurrayLB #RamResolve

congratulations to the middle school softball team. The softball team won its 5th straight game yesterday defeating Lawrence Middle School by the score of 20-9. The girls showed great patience at the plate and had big at bats led by Joy Reynoso's RBI double. Great pitching from Valerie Schreck and solid defense helped seal the win. It was a great team win.

Today our students completed an empathy-building Word Cloud activity that we started a few weeks ago. Students took all the positive words peers shared about them & custom designed a Word Cloud that we will print & laminate as a keepsake. Be on the lookout! @whufsdrams @smurrayLB
