Middle School


Our students are making headlines, and we want to share all the great news with you. We will keep this page updated with important announcements, news stories, and student shout-outs. Please check back often, and help us celebrate our students’ many achievements.

Thank You to Our Athletics Teams

We would like to thank all of our football, volleyball, and cross-country teams for representing us so well this fall. Great job!

Challenge of the Books

Any students who love to read and would like to join the Challenge of the Books should visit the learning commons and sign up. Students will read a minimum of three of the titles displayed throughout the school and take a test over the books by December 3, 2019. We will be selecting the students who read the most titles and score the highest on the tests to be on this year’s team. The team will consist of six students and will travel to Thermopolis in January to compete against other schools. Please email Denise Catlin with questions.

Sixth Grade Field Trip

The sixth graders will be taking a field trip on October 23 and 24. Half of the sixth-grade students will go on Wednesday, and the other half of the sixth grade will go on Thursday. We are going to the Washakie Museum and Cultural Center in Worland. We will leave at 8:15 a.m. and return by 3:15 p.m. on both days of the field trip. Students will need to bring a sack lunch.
