|WMMS†Professional Development Day |
While we here at West McDowell transform our thoughts and structures into a true middle school concept, we understand the importance†of finding our own "Superhero" within to share with our students. We are in the process of developing structures that ensure every student will be known as an individual, feel cared about and valued. Our school is a home away from home-a place where students work and learn together with teachers and staff.
Thank you to Melanie Shavers for leading our professional development and helping with our middle school transformation!
We Are The Champions, My Friends.....
