CLUBS AND OTHER ACTIVITIES
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.
WRMS Student Government:
Students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade who are interested in leadership at WRMS have the opportunity to serve as either a class representative or officer in our Student Government Association. SGA Members are required to demonstrate leadership qualities, exhibit exemplary conduct, maintain good attendance and strong academic standing, as well as fulfill the duties of his/her office. Various SGA activities planned for this school year include sponsoring events such as school dances and pep rallies, a Thanksgiving/Christmas Food Drives, a Red Cross Blood Drive, and the Barry L.

As an SGA member, students may be required to stay after school for meetings or activities.
