We take great pride in our dynamic school and in our vibrant community. We hope you enjoy our website. If we can help in any way, please call or stop by our school office.

A message from the Principal.

Welcome Back to all of our students, families and staff members here at Wade Carpenter Middle School.  This is going to be a great year.  We are starting a new program here at school that is called Capturing Kids Hearts.  Mrs. Silva and Mr. Rodriguez trained the staff on this program.  The main focus is for us to improve our relationships with our students, and use a social contract that empowers our students to self-regulate their behavior.  We believe this will lead to improved teacher-student communication through positive comments and sharing the good news about our students.  This will play a major role and be extremely critical in our goal of improved academic achievement.  
The WCMS Staff created a social contract of our own to regulate our interaction and behavior with each other as we are the primary role models for our students.  The contract between all of the staff is on display in the office and you are all welcome to come and see this new strategy we completed for this year.  Every first-period teacher will also post their social contract in class as well.  We want this to be a great year!
In alignment with our Capturing Kids Hearts Program here at Wade Carpenter, we held our first-ever "Red Carpet Event" on the First Day of School.  We had a Red Carpet at the front entrance of the school.  Our staff took turns holding our WCMS frame and we took pictures with all of the students and their parents.  We welcomed each student with a high five, handshake, hugs and smiles.  We want our students to believe that when they are with us they are with their family.  The positive energy was visible, contagious, and you could feel it all day.
Let's make this a great year and become a B School!
