Family Involvement at WPMS

Connecting with our families is an essential component of supporting students. Communication is key for fostering connection. Each fall we encourage every family to participate in a family meeting with their child's mentor. At this initial meeting, families work with the mentor to set goals, learn more about the child, and lay the foundation of a positive relationships. WPMS parents can also expect weekly team emails and principal newsletters. Additionally, please "like" us on Facebook! If you would like to be further involved at WPMS, check out our parent organizations for opportunities to be involved.
