  • Exploratory Night
     
    On Wednesday, May 7th, the West Lee MS Exploratory Department, Exploratory Night for our rising 6th grade students.  We understand that coming from elementary school to middle school can be intimidating and confusing. Exploratory Night is a chance for rising 6th grade students to come and find out more about the Exploratory classes that they can take while here at West Lee.  We hope that will relieve some of the anxiety of the unknown world of middle school.
    Mr. Blake's Band and Miss Ray's Chorus students performed solos and in small ensembles.

    Miss Shonka's Art classes had artwork on display.  

    PE, AVID, Computer Skills/Business, STEM and Biotechnology had displays with information about their classes.

    STEM and FFA also had information available about their clubs.

    The Robotic Pride, West Lee Middle School’s Robotics Club, successfully competed at the Lee County Schools robotics competition held Wednesday, May 14, 2014 at the Dennis Wicker Civic Center. West was matched against teams form East Lee and SanLee to see which team’s robots could be programmed to maneuver various obstacle courses as quickly and efficiently as possible. The Pride brought home a trophy for most points during the floor competition as well as the grand prize trophy for total points overall. Coaches Shawnteya Hayes and Elizabeth Jackson are extremely proud of all club members and appreciate their hard work in designing, building, and programming their robots for the competition. We would like to thank all of our parents for their continued support throughout the year. Thank you to East Lee and SanLee for a job well done.

  • Kickball Charity Game
    Once again, West Lee students showed their compassion for others by collecting pop tabs for the Ronald McDonald House.  This is the second collection of the year.  In total, our students have collected over 155 pounds of pop tabs that will be donated and turned into funds to support the Ronald McDonald House charity.  This  charity provides a "home away from home" to families of children in the hospital.  
    To make things interesting, we had a competition to see which grade level could collect the most.  This time, the 6th grade won!  Several 6th graders got to play their teachers and other school staff in a kickball game on Friday, May 2nd.  The game was played on the football field, concessions were sold and students had a great time watching their teachers compete against their classmates.  In the end, the students just couldn't triumph over the the older (ouch), more experienced staff as they won the game (31-0).  A good time was had by all, and most importantly, West Lee was able to extend help to a charity that does so much good in the community.

  • 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.
