  • Student Council Meetings – Meeting every other Wednesday at 4:00.  Next meeting is April 28th.  Please use the meet link in the Student Council Google Classroom.
  • Musical The Fine Arts Department, including our music ensemble teachers, are discussing how best to provide a performance experience for students and their families. We recently learned that New York State has a new Executive Order regarding small and medium scale performing arts venues. We may now host up to 100 attendees indoors and up to 200 attendees outdoors, which may allow our family members of our student performers to attend live performances. We will update you once we know what we can safely accomplish at WGMS. Our school musical has the green light to take place this year which is awesome! We are proud to present Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr. on June 10th, 11th and 12th. We will send ticketing information and procedures once we have worked out the details.
  • Lost & Found our Lost & Found table in the main lobby is getting pretty full, please stop by to see if anything is yours!
  • St. Baldrick’s For our St. Baldrick’s event this year we had 20 individuals step up to ‘brave the shave’ as part of #TeamWildcat, raising over $15,000 and counting. Nine of our shavees were students from both WGMS and CMS who collectively raised over $7,000 as a group. Unbelievable! We had local barbers from Saving Face Barber Shop volunteer their time and expertise to shave heads and be a part of our event as well. All in all, a lot of people giving of themselves for a cause bigger than themselves. All in all, a community stepping up and coming together, even during a Pandemic!  It’s all about “The Power of WE!”  https://www.stbaldricks.org/events/WGMS2021
  • Classlink – Starting Monday 2/8/21, students will be moving away from using Operoo for their daily attendance while they are learning remotely. Below you will find two video links that show students how to login using a district chromebook or personal device.  When students login, we will record this information to assist with daily attendance. Once in Classlink, students will  be able to access all the applications they typically use.  It will become a Single Sign On (SSO) location for all the applications we use at West Genesee.
