  • West Lee Holds Annual Spelling Bee
     
    West Lee Middle started the new year with its annual Spelling Bee.  This year, twenty-seven students from grades 6 through 8 participated for the honor to be named school Spelling Bee Champion.  Many students fell by the wayside in the opening rounds until there were only a few left to respond as the words steadily got more difficult. In the end, India T. came out on top followed by Arianna O. and Hailey P.  Both India and Arianna will receive a complimentary year's subscription to Encyclopedia Britannica Onlne. The three Bee Queens will participate in the upcoming county-wide bee with the chance to be the Lee County champion who will go to the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, DC, May 24-May 29.  Oh, and the winning word? Circumflex.

  • West Lee Takes the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
     
    On Thursday, September 25, West Lee staff accepted the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS.  Students were able to purchase buckets of ice water to dump on the staff member of their choice.  The event was scheduled after school on the early-release day. The “lucky” staff members who were selected took their freezing showers like troopers despite a temperature that hovered only around 69 degrees. In total, $490, representing 98 buckets of ice-cold love, was raised.  All proceeds will be donated to the Jim “Catfish” Hunter Chapter of the ALS Foundation.  Both West Lee staff and students are very proud to have participated in this service learning project.  Go Pride!

  •  Voices Into Action Awards West Lee Mini Grant
     
    Voices Into Action, an organization that partners with communities to support access to healthy, affordable food and safe places to be active, has given Ms. Melanie Parker, West Lee's Biotechnology teacher,  a mini grant to build and maintain a garden at our school. Below is the article published on the Voices Into Action website.
     

    West Lee Middle School Garden:

     

    West Lee Middle School received a 2014 mini-grant from Voices into Action to start an educational garden on school grounds. Melanie Parker, an agriculture education and biology teacher at West Lee, will bring her students outside for hands-on learning as they cultivate fruits and vegetables that will then be shared with other students and their families. Melanie and her students, along with West Lee Middle’s Student Council, are learning how to build garden beds, thanks to help from the high school FFA. All of Melanie’s students, 6th through 8th grade, will get a chance to work in the garden as part of their agriculture education curriculum.
     
     
    Soon, Melanie and her students will plant fall and winter seeds—like broccoli and lettuce—in the school’s greenhouse; these seedlings will then be planted in the new garden beds when they are complete. Working in the garden will give students a chance to get out of the classroom and enjoy some physical activity in the outdoors, while giving them the skills and knowledge to tend to and grow healthy and delicious garden fruits and vegetables.

  • AVID School Supply List 
     
    West Lee Middle is implementing AVID school wide (Advancement Via Individual Determination) this year.  We're very excited about putting in place strategies and practices that encourage students to prepare for whatever school or career path they follow.  One of the strategies we will be using is having a common set of tools to organize note taking.

  • WLMS Music and Chicks 
    West Lee Middle Band, Chorus and Orchestra joined Save The Children and Great American fundraising to send chicks to underprivileged families in Guatemala, Bangladesh and South Sudan.  During our fundraiser, instead of receiving a free item from the catalog, students sent a chick to one of these countries.  These chicks will grow up to provide eggs for the families to eat as well as be able to sell at the market for extra income.
