Today marked the official placement of Mrs. Obey's sixth graders' time capsule! Students buried the time capsule after carefully selecting items that their "future selves" would like to see from 2016. Some items that students placed in the capsule include pictures, an iPod, Kindle, phone, baseball, hockey puck, action figures, and Nerf darts. This has been an ongoing project in social studies class, and today marks the culmination of their hard work. We look forward to unearthing this when students are seniors. Thank you to Mr. Craig Johnson for constructing the tube for the capsule, to Mr. LaLonde for his guidance and expertise, and to our maintenance and operations team for selecting the perfect spot behind the basketball court.
Congratulations to each of the students who were awarded with the, "Student of the Month" certificate this week for May/June! We are proud to have such a wonderful community here at Westmoreland Middle School, and are thrilled to recognize each of these students. This month's students include:
Students of the Month
It's hard to clearly articulate how proud we are of our fifth graders for their tremendous dedication and unforgettable 'transformations' for their wax museum presentations. Each student selected an individual who had a significant impact on our world, and spent weeks researching and writing about this individual. Their task was to know this person so well that they could become a "wax version" of him or her. With the touch of a button, each fifth grader brought their presentation to life, never breaking character! After opening the exhibit three times, our students had our entire district and community applauding their efforts. Congratulations and all of the praise you received is very well-deserved!
*We hope to include a picture of each student, so if you have any to share, please send them to Mrs. Guy, Mrs. Miller, or
It is with great pleasure that we congratulate the class of 2020 on their graduation from Westmoreland Middle School. It was truly an honor to recognize each student last evening during their ceremony. We wish them all the best as they embark on their next journey in high school. They are each well-equipped to be the leaders of change in our world!
Thank you to Westmoreland High School senior Savannah Decker for speaking to the class about the importance of hard work and dedication as they enter high school.
Seventh grade students worked to harness the power of the sun in STEM class. Teams designed solar ovens using using science concepts related to light, heat transfer and greenhouse effect to heat water. The best performing ovens raised the temperature of water 140 degrees Fahrenheit. -Mr. LaLonde
