WRMS has several clubs and activities for students. Each club has a staff sponsor. We encourage as many students as possible to become active in the school-sponsored activities.
The Student Council is made up of selected representatives from each homeroom. They meet periodically with the sponsors and plan projects that make the school stronger. They also assist in the planning of assemblies and activities. This organization is for students in grades 6,7, and 8.
The WRMS Honor Society promotes academic achievement and outstanding character. Members are expected to hold fast to the principles of citizenship, scholarship, and service that the organization is based on. Requirements for membership include: A grade point average of at least a 93 with no semester report card grade below a 90 and a good conduct record.
New members are inducted at the end of the first semester. During each grading period students are expected to maintain a high academic average. Advisors will review the grades at the end of each semester. Probation will result when averages drop below 93.0 or the student has a semester grade that is below a 90. Probationary students have one semester to raise their grade point average to a 93 with all grades at or above a 90.
The club recognizes the writing of prose, poetry and artwork by sixth, seventh and eighth grade students. The Literary Magazine is printed each year and sold for a nominal fee.
The National Society of Professional Engineers and CAN Insurance Companies founded math counts in 1983. Current sponsors include the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, NASA, and the General Motors and Cray Research Foundations. Math Counts, held at the WRMS, offers students of all ability levels an opportunity to meet after school once a week to study together and receive help from math teachers. In January students who would like to be on the Math Counts team may take a test to qualify. Four Math Counts team members and one alternate from seventh and eighth grade will attend the chapter competition in February.All County Band and Chorus:
Any choral or band student may audition to participate in the All-County Band or Chorus. This is sponsored by Rockingham County Schools and is an excellent opportunity for our students.
This club is open to sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students. They meet once a week after school. Attendance is mandatory to remain in the club. Drama club members learn the craft of acting as well as other aspects of the theater. This is an exciting organization, with periodic field trips and student productions.
This club focuses on cultural activities such as crafts, dancing, singing and acting related to Spanish-speaking countries. It also sponsors trips and artistic events for students.
Gamers' club is open to all students in sixth, seventh, and eighth grade. The club meets weekly from 2:45 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. No prior knowledge of games are necessary. Students enjoy a relaxed time to learn problem-solving skills and strategies for improving their game that positively affect their academic endeavors. If a student enjoys competition, he or she may sign up for the grade level tournaments, which are usually held twice a year.
