Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! Every Wednesday you will receive a Weekly Wednesday Update with information about upcoming school events, news from PTA, and community events.

School News

School Picture Day

Friday, August 24th is picture day! Students were given order forms in their Advise class this week. Extra order forms are available in the main office. Families may order photos ahead of time on with Picture Day ID CG898342Y0.

Science Night

Wednesday, September 5th is our fourth annual Science Night from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. This event is open to the community.

Safety Information Night

On Wednesday, September 12th, West Jefferson Middle School will be hosting a Parent/Student Safety Information Night from 6:00 to 7:30 pm in the cafeteria. Deputy Wonner, our Student Resource Officer, and David Fennimore, our Social Emotional Learning Specialist, will be presenting at this event.

Student Behavior in the Community

Since the beginning of the year, the school has received complaints about students’ behavior in the neighborhood and in local businesses. Please talk with your student(s) about proper behavior in and around the community. Blocking the streets, flipping off adults, throwing/spitting food at one another in store aisles, and being rude to patrons of local businesses are unacceptable behaviors.
