Welcome to Wood River Middle School
We are the Wolverines...
Welcome to the WRMS Website. Our website is maintained daily with up-to-date information and great videos featuring our students partaking in exceptional projects and learning opportunities. Here are some of the big changes in our school:
- We have developed a Pre-AP Language Arts and advanced Math program to help our students prepare for high school.
- We are planning and implementing units based on Common Core Standards for all classes.
- We implement timely and meaningful interventions: Students who are struggling in a subject or multiple subjects may receive a multitude of specialized interventions to assist them to achieve academically. Our goal is simple - we want students to succeed and we want them to be ready for high school.
- We have a credit system in the middle school for students with specific benchmarks to reach before the student can be promoted to the next grade. Please see the link on our homepage that describes the parameters of our credit requirements and the interventions we use to assist students in academic trouble.
We are lucky in Blaine County to have the support of a community that values education and the whole child. Our Arts, Technology, Athletic, Counseling, Language, and Student Services programs are very robust and well-funded.
Our facilities are recently upgraded to provide more classrooms for Special Education and World Languages.
Professionally, you will find that my vision for WRMS is to be a school with obvious boundaries and focus on academic achievement and the safety of all students. Feel free to contact me if you have any concerns or need any assistance, or contact me to talk about education and our school if you are considering a move into the Wood River Valley.
Personally, I am blessed to be working with such a great staff and to have the honor of working with such beautiful young people that attend our school. I always strive to fulfill my personal life goal of being a positive influence in the lives of others. Come by for a visit, you will be amazed at all we do here for kids.
I encourage any parent or potential WRMS parent who needs assistance or is interested in our school for their child's future to contact me, Mr. Rob Ditch (our school Vice-Principal), Tod Gunter (our Social Worker), Dot Weller (Attendance Secretary/Registrar), or Holly Coiner and Stani Malmgren (our Counselors) if they need assistance or information. Thanks to all of you for allowing me to serve this wonderful community.
Come visit our school - you will not be disappointed!
