If students want to audition for symphonic band, there is an additional etude to play (was also handed out before break).
Dental Visits at WCMS Great News! The dentist is coming to our school on Monday, January 29th. Our school has partnered with Smile Programs to offer in-school dental care. Best of all, in most cases there is no cost to you if your child is insured with Medicaid or CHIP! Private insurance and affordable self-pay options are also available. Having your child seen by the in-school dentist saves you valuable time. Dental care includes a complete exam, x-rays, cleaning, fluoride and sealants when needed. Restorative care, such as fillings, may also be provided. Permission slips were sent home with students this week, and need to be returned to school by Tuesday, January 16th in order for your child to participate. If you have any questions, please contact our school nurse, Ms. Amann at 947-7403.
