"Inkouragements" brought to you by WCMS Asset Builders
WCMS sixth graders, Jalyn Cain, Cassidy Hudson, and Maddy Walls are students who build assets every single day.  These students started a group called “inkouragements” at WCMS. They create posters with encouraging messages and hang them around the school for others to see.  Some of the messages posted say, “You don’t fail unless you give up,” “Do what you want, not what others tell you to do,” and “If you want your dreams to come true, keep trying,” These students showcase Asset #5 - Caring School Climate, Asset #15 - Positive Peer Influence, Asset #21 - Achievement Motivation, Asset #25 - Bonding to School, Asset #33 - Interpersonal Competence, Asset #37 - Personal Power, Asset #38 - Self Esteem, and Asset #39 - Sense of Purpose.

Career Day at WCMS
What does it take to become a care flight nurse?  WC Middle School seventh graders learned first-hand ..."You have to be strong in the subjects of science and math. You have to possess great interpersonal skills," said presenter and care flight nurse, Nancy Sweet. "People aren't warm and friendly when they don't feel well. You have to care about them anyway. And, they don't get sick 9 - 5, Monday to Friday."  The information Sweet shared motivated several students, including Selena Phillips, to pursue nursing.    

Sweet and 10 other guest speakers, introduced their career to students. They gave a brief overview of their job duties, the training requirements, range of the earning levels, job availability, and employment prospects. Some of the other career day speakers included an insurance broker, a sports broadcaster, an attorney, an accountant, a speech pathologist, an engineer, and a police officer.

Guidance Counselor, Sharon Petrick, said, "Our students loved hearing from these individuals. They got them excited about what the future may hold ... here at WCMS, we want students to start thinking seriously about the many opportunities available to them. Then they are well positioned to develop a plan and work hard to achieve their goals. Career Day inspired a lot of our students to begin that process."
