  • West Lee Students Show Off Their Talent

    On Friday, April 10, West Lee held a talent show giving students a chance to display their skills to the school. Acts ranged from dance to acrobatics and from singing to playing musical instruments. Teacher Amy Braren spearheaded the show as well as MCing it. The student body had a great time seeing and hearing their peers perform and greeted each act with enthusiasm. The winners received a beautiful—and tasty—candy bouquet. Those receiving recognition were:

    Sixth Grade:

    First Place Ellie B.

    Second Place Ariel D.

    Third Place Gustavo C. and David R.

                 Hallie H., Riley V., and Emily S.

    Seventh Grade First Place: Alex C.

    Eighth Grade First Place: Sy H.

    Congratulations to all the students who were brave enough and talented enough to perform. You are all winners, and we look forward to seeing what you and others have to show us next year.

  •  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.

  • 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.
