 Dear Wade Carpenter Middle School Parents,

Welcome to what promises to be an awesome new school year at Wade Carpenter Middle School!  We are incredibly excited, and know that it promises to be filled with even more golden opportunities for all of our students. We strive to find ways that we can be even better than we have been before!  As we begin this new year, we pledge to you, our students and parents, that this will be a wonderful year of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms.  We will also engage in some fun and special times with our extracurricular clubs and activities, band groups, and athletic teams and events to offer and encourage our Eagles to be involved here at WCMS!

 This 2016-2017 school year, we will continue to build upon and refine our foundation of good work and many worthwhile traditions. Nothing is more important than continuing to build upon our tradition of excellence in education.  Our vision is to continue to embrace opportunities, unlock potential, and inspire excellence! 

 Our staff of highly qualified professional educators and support personnel is committed to providing our students many opportunities --- both inside and outside of the classroom --- for high quality learning, continual growth, leadership opportunities, and achieving at a high level of excellence!  We pledge that this will be our focus daily, and we encourage you, both students and parents, to work in collaboration with us and take advantage of these opportunities. 

 We look forward to a very positive and productive year together!  We extend a special, yearlong invitation to our parents to join us at school activities and events whenever you can.  We want and we value your involvement and support in your child’s education! Your involvement is important to the success of our students during their middle school years.

 Please also know that we highly value home/school communication here at Wade Carpenter.  Communication is critical and plays an integral role in each student’s success.  Please do not hesitate to contact us when the need arises.  We want and encourage our parents to stay informed about their child’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities.

 We welcome you to Wade Carpenter Middle School and to our wonderful professional learning community. Wade Carpenter is a school with a tremendous amount of energy, enthusiasm, and a high standard of excellence!  It is, indeed, a place where opportunities abound!  The first day of school will be Wednesday, August 10, 2016.  Classes begin at 8:00 a.m. and conclude at 3:10 p.m.  Let’s work together and make each day our masterpiece!



Roman Soltero, Ed.D.
