Construction continues at WMS!!  Though we love getting the new a/c system, the process has had an impact on what we normally do, especially for incoming 5th graders and any new students.  Please watch our website and/or our Facebook page.  If we can conduct tours and have meetings prior to the first day of school, we will make it happen!  In the meantime, please call the school if you have questions or concerns - (931) 388-2558 ext. 1252.
