Welcome to the West Central Middle School. WCMS serves approximately 220 students in grades 6-8. It is attached to West Central High School and is next door to West Central Elementary School. These schools together provide education to the students in the western half of Pulaski County and the far eastern section of Jasper County, in northwestern Indiana. The middle school is located between Francesville and Medaryville, Indiana, and serves students from these two towns and the surrounding rural area.
- Congratualtions to our September Student of the Month, Rachel Perry!
- The kids in Mrs. Sensibaugh's 7th grade math class created snow flakes recently. They did such a great job. We created tessellating snowflakes, and the kids had such a fun time doing math!
Last week 8th grade students participated in the five day Planned Potential program which is geared specifically for middle school students. Topics of discussion included self-esteem, decision making, character, teen pregnancy, goal setting and achieving their full potential. Each day students were given a "charge" (task to complete) that addressed the topic for the day. Ask your child what he/she learned last week from Toni & Jason!!
- Eighth grade students participated in Reality Store Thursday, October 22nd. Students engaged in classroom lessons to prepare for the event and to start thinking about their future. Students had to make some decisions such as career choice, marriage, children, pets, savings and donations. During Reality Store, students paid bills, faced unexpected life events and realized that being an adult is not easy. Here are quotes from students:
"I don't want to be an adult"
"Life is hard" (lots of student noted this)
"Life is expensive"
"Money doesn't go as far as you'd think"
"Kids are expensive"
"Stress is real"
"Pets are expensive"
Thanks to the Purdue Extension Office, local agencies/volunteers and West Central staff for making this an exciting opportunity for the Class of 2020!!
