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.
- Members of SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) worked together to create this Red Ribbon Week poster to display in the hall. This serves as a reminder to all students to make smart, healthy choices and not to do drugs.
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!!
THANK YOU to everyone who made this year's 8th grade Reality Store a HUGE success!! The students were actively engaged, learned a little about the financial challenges of being an adult and also had some fun. I greatly appreciate everyone who had a hand in this wonderful experience ~ students, teachers, administration, community volunteers, custodians.......you are the BEST!!!
Mrs. Drone's students "Give a Hoot!"
The 6th grade students in Mrs. Drone's Language Arts class just finished reading the novel Hoot. They had a choice of a variety of projects to complete for a variety of grades. To work for an A some of the students chose to make a papier-mache replica of an owl after researching owls. The results were spectacular. The students who chose to do this project exceeded all expectations. They really do give a hoot.
Rock the BELT Day - 2013
In 2011, less than 1/3 of young Hoosier drivers killed in crashes were restrained. Many of those lives lost could have been saved, if only they were buckled up!!
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA) identifies safety belt use as the most effective strategy in preventing traffic collision deaths and minimizing crash injuries.
Rock the Belt Day is part of a larger week long celebration of National Teen Driver Safety Week. On, October 24th, Middle School SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) students wore duct tape seat belts as a reminder for all students & staff to buckle their seatbelt in every vehicle, in every seat, every time!
