On Tuesday, March 10th, the Glee Club held their spring performance for their family and friends. The theme was "Music Changes Lives". One of the songs they performed was "We are the World", which also gave several of the students an opportunity at solo parts in the song. The students have worked very hard this year and made their last performance one to remember. We are so proud of the Glee Club and Mr. Payne for their hard work and reminding us that music can change lives with even just one song.
On Thursday, March 5th, several of our 8th grade students who placed in the History Day project a few months ago at WMS attend the History Day Competition at Lee University. Each group were instructed to make a project about a person who made an impact in history and tell their story. Each project had to follow certain guidelines and could only be worked on by the students themselves on their own time.
All of the groups from WMS placed at History Day, winning 1st, 2nd & 3rd place! They had tough competition, but never wavered and presented their projects with confidence and an abundance of knowledge! We are SO proud of these students for taking a huge step and doing it fearlessly. Whitwell Middle School is VERY proud of you and best of luck at state!
On Thursday, February 27th, some of the 7th & 8th grade students that are involved in the WMS Holocaust Studies group and the tour guides headed down to Atlanta to attend a Bar Mitzvah. They were able to attend a fundraising event and the Bar Mitzvah ceremony. While they were there, they also got to meet two former NBA stars and even shoot some hoops with them! Our kids had a great time learning and meeting new people while representing Whitwell Middle School very well.
