Please review it with your child. 

Halloween 'Character Trait' Costume Walk 
Halloween took on a new twist this year!  Students were asked to dress to represent a “Character Trait” that means something to them.  For example, the superhero Spiderman - as portrayed in a bulletin board right now on campus - reflects the “Character Trait” of “Accountability.” 

These are the winning student costumes!

Our Career Exploration Day Was A Great Day For Students!  

Mahalo to more than 60 community members who volunteered to share their career stories and experiences with all 260 WMS students on Oct. 24.  All students were asked to choose from about five dozen career options and then participated in 4 separate sessions about different career possibilities.  

Presenters ranged from a helicopter pilot (with training helicopter) to a dentist (with the Tooth Bus mobile clinic), from a veterinarian to police officers with a trained dog, from an architect, food artist, astronomer and barista to physical therapist, general contractor, an automotive technician, and hunting equipment retailer, to a fire captain and crew (with fire truck).  And lots more including restaurant chef and owner, to an attorney, beekeeper, yoga instructor and beautician/cosmetologist.  See pictures on Facebook. 

Doctor, Lawyer, Merchant, Chief...WMS Students Explore More Than 60 Career Options
MAHALO to ALL of our presenters who came to WMS campus 10/24/18 to introduce students to a wide array of career opportunities! Here we see Mauna Loa Helicopter (a flight training provider) with its beautiful training helicopter being inspected by students. Very cool!

This was just one of more than 60 presenters introducing a wide array of career possibilities.  It was especially nice to welcome 5 former WMS students back as presenters! 

WMS Hosts VEX Robotics Competition
