Each January, 8th grade students at WCMS are required to take the 8th Grade Writing Assessment test to demonstrate their knowledge and mastery of writing skills. The results of this year’s writing test have been announced, and 78.8% of this year’s 8th grade class met or exceeded the requirements to pass the exam. This marks the third consecutive year that the number of students meeting or exceeding the necessary score has increased over the previous school year.
As a reward for their hard work on the test, the students that passed were treated to grilled hamburgers and hot dogs for lunch on Friday, March 16th. The students were able to leave the classrooms for their meal and enjoy the sunshine with recreational activities on the football field. Congratulations to these students and to Mrs. Celia McGlamory for all of their hard work in preparing for the writing test.
