Welcome to the 2013-2014 School Year!

Posted August 18, 2013 by Benjamin A. Smith

School kicks off tomorrow, and we're ready!

This summer, WBMS's teachers received training in preparation to implement the new Common Core State Standards. The new standards, recently adopted by 45 states, Washington D.C., and four U.S. terrorities, provide a deeper and more coherent definition of the knowledge and skills our students must master to become College and Career Ready.

WBMS teachers have also been preparing by giving many parts of the school a bit of a facelift. A number of WBMS teachers have taken it upon themselves to paint their classrooms over the summer. You'll find colors ranging from light blue (Ms. Thomas) and light green (Ms. Hensley) to royal purple (Ms. Barnes) and bubblegum pink (Ms. Henry). And they're not alone!

Having been named an "A" school for yet another year, and starting the year with its largest returning faculty ever (just one new teacher!), WBMS promises great things for the coming year.

Additional Vaccine Required for Seventh Grade Students

Posted May 31, 2013 by Mari Hebert

Attention, Parents of 2013-2014 Seventh Grade Students:

This is a reminder that all students entering 7th grade for the 2013-2014 school year must have a Tdap booster in addition to all previously required vaccines.

Parents should arrange for their sixth-grade children to receive this immunization prior to entering seventh grade. A student’s 7th grade schedule will be withheld until proof of immunization is provided.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that receiving the tetanus diphtheria vaccination is the best way to protect against tetanus and diphtheria. Tetanus, also known as “lock jaw,” causes serious muscle spasms. Diphtheria can lead to breathing problems, heart failure, paralysis and even death. The Florida Department of Health requires Tdap vaccine, the most current version of the vaccine, which provides additional protection against pertussis, or “whooping cough.”

Students may obtain vaccines free of charge at the Florida Department of Health in Santa Rosa County or through private healthcare providers. Immunizations at the Midway Clinic are provided on a walk-in basis, no appointment is necessary.

Midway Clinic - (850) 934-4074
5840 Gulf Breeze Parkway
Tuesday: 8 am - 11:30 am, 1:30 pm - 3 pm
Friday: 8 am - noon
