Here are the announcements for the week of March 19, 2018:
Scheduling for the 2018-2019 School Year
- Each student has received their scheduling sheets for next school year. We’ve included quick video instructions below.
- The students will rate their encore classes 1, 2, 3, etc. with 1 being their FIRST choice for an encore (I REALLY want that encore!) through their last choice .
- Note: If your student was recommended for Spanish, you will find an “X” marked by the Spanish option. If you do not see the mark, Spanish is not an option. The core classes will be chosen based on teacher recommendations and testing scores.
- These will be due no later than Friday, March 23rd. This gives students over a week to choose their classes for next year. Please have your student turn the sheet into their advisory teacher after getting signatures from a parent or guardian. If this is not turned in by the due date (3/23), they may not get their choices in classes for next year.
For more information about scheduling sheets and how to do them – Please check out these videos:

Meet the Team - Spring Sports
Spring Sports will have Meet the Team night on Monday, March 19th at 6:30PM in the PAC at WCMS. We look forward to seeing you there!
Electronic Vapor & Smokeless Tobacco Devices
Parents, please talk with your children and educate yourself on the dangers of electronic vapor & smokeless tobacco devices. Often times students incorrectly think vape devices are safe for them to use and this is not the case. We strongly encourage all parents/guardians to know what pods and juuls look like. Know what vape smells like. Ask questions. These types of devices can be as addictive as the cigarettes and in some ways, the research shows, causes as much (and maybe worse) harm. Please read through this NBC news report for more information: https://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-news/teen-inhale-cancer-causing-chemicals-e-cigarettes-n853611
Yearbook sale has been extended! The yearbook is now available for students at WCMS. Please visit www.YBPay.lifetouch.com. The School ID code for WCMS is: 13239718 This will be the LAST chance for the year to order yearbooks.

Immunization Requirements! Attention All Current 6th Grade Parents/Guardians
All students entering 7th grade in the Fall of 2018 are now required by Ohio school law to show proof of the TDap booster vaccine (to protect against Tetanus, Diptheria and Pertussis), and the Meningicoccal (MCV4) vaccine (to protect against Meningitis) BEFORE starting school in August 2018. Any student who has not had these immunizations prior to entering 7th grade may not be permitted to attend school until proof of these immunizations has been received by the school, so do not delay. Many students have already had these and documentation just needs to be sent to school to complete your child’s health record. If they have not received, don’t wait! Make your appointments now as clinics tend to fill up towards the end of summer and cause exclusion from school. Documentation may be sent in to school or faxed to 753-1070, Attention Health Clinic. Please see the attached document for more information.
What’s New at the Wolves Wellness Health Center? Our vision center is scheduled to begin seeing patients on Wednesday May 16th. If your child failed their vision screening, we can conduct their complete eye exam in the vision center with Dr. Pallet. Please call (513) 732-5082 for an appointment. Does your child need prescription sports googles for the upcoming sports season? HealthSource of Ohio participates in the “Play Hard Don’t Blink” program that offers prescription sports googles to students who qualify based on ability to pay. For more information, please call the Wolves Wellness Health Center at (513) 732-5082. ENROLL YOUR STUDENT TODAY and you could WIN one of four Wolves Wellness Baskets. Return your student’s Wolves Wellness School Based Health enrollment packet by Friday, March 30, 2018 to be eligible to win 1 of 4 Wolves Wellness baskets. Each basket is valued over $200.00 and includes various items to keep you and your family happy & healthy throughout the school year. To enter, visit healthsourceofohio.org to access the School Based Health Forms, and return your student’s completed enrollment packet to your school nurse by Friday, March 30, 2018. Multiple students=multiple entries. HealthSource of Ohio and the West Clermont School District believe that healthier students achieve more and that together, this partnership can create healthier, happier communities—one student at a time. We would like to cordially invite you to attend next week’s Open House for our Wolves Wellness School Based Health Center. This is a great opportunity for you to tour the new facility, meet the staff that will be caring for your student, and have any questions you may have addressed personally. The event will take place next Thursday, March 22nd from 5:00pm-7:00pm. We would also like to remind you that every student who returns their School Based Health enrollment forms by March 30th will be eligible to win 1 of 4 gift baskets designed to keep you and your family healthy throughout the school year. Simply visit our website or healthsourceofohio.org to download the appropriate forms, and return them to your student’s school nurse. Forms will also be available at our Open House event. Finally, as a reminder, the Wovles Wellness School Based Health Center does not replace your child’s primary care provider. It does however, offer a point of access at the school level to treat illnesses, manage chronic conditions and manage eye care and the mental health needs of our students. We invite parents and community providers alike to tour the center, learn more about HealthSource of Ohio and how we can all partner to ensure our students remain healthy.
