The WMS 6th Graders were participating Tuesday in the Pheasant Forever and Quail Forever's Youth Pollinator Habitat Program just north of the 9th Street Baseball Diamond. This is the 2nd year for the project, administered by 6th grade Social Studies instructor Brandon Wilmoth...here's a description of what the program is about: Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever’s Youth Pollinator Habitat Program provides support to over 700 grassroots chapters and their partners across the country to engage youth, families and communities in establishing pollinator habitat projects. The program’s objectives are to increase awareness about declining pollinator populations, educate the general public on the importance of pollinator habitat and establish quality pollinator habitat across the country. The program will provide tools for chapters and their partners to work with local community partners to create habitat projects that involve youth, school and community groups. Program support includes training on how to plan, plant and manage a pollinator project from start to finish. Additionally, conservation/pollinator curriculum for classrooms, hands-on educational activities and monitoring activities for after the project is established are provided. Project benefits include quality pollinator foraging and nesting habitat, but also opportunities for youth to get outside and gain an appreciation for wildlife and conservation.

WMS students Mekhi Haskin-Ybarra, Jeffery Berryman, Alyra Koerner, Maddie Nance, Jensen Lynnes and Shianna Hughescreated "book report sandwiches" for Ms. Fairbanks' Reading Class, over their 3rd quarter AR books. Each part of the sandwich explained a different part of the book, ex. the cheese was the character description, the meat was the setting and so on. Very Creative!!
