ATTN: Incoming 7th Grade Parents – TDAP Needed!

For the 2018-2019 school year all students entering, advancing or transferring into 7th grade will need proof of an adolescent whooping cough booster immunization (called “Tdap”) for school in the fall.   Students who are non-compliant with this policy will NOT be able to attend school until immunizations are completed or a medical exemption is obtained from the physician and submitted to the school.


The Tdap requirement affects all incoming 7th grade students in California, so it’s important to avoid the back-to-school rush and to get children vaccinated now. Tell other parents with children in the 6th grade about the requirement and encourage them to schedule the shot now. If your child has already received this vaccination, please send in the documentation NOW and do not wait until summer or the start of the school year.  If you have already provided us with your proof of Tdap, thank you for doing so.   We are requesting all documentation be turned in BEFORE August 1st, 2018 so that there is ample time to input all the information.  You may also scan the document and send it to Heather Puckett, Registrar, her email addresses given below.

Information on the Tdap requirement, including information on where to get free or low cost vaccines, forms, and FAQs are available at www.ShotsForSchool.org.  


Please contact Mrs. Puckett hpuckett@srvusd.net with any questions at 925-479-7415.  


Thank you for your attention in this very important matter.

Science Bowl Tryouts 2018-2019

=================================================================

The National Science Bowl is an exciting, challenging, jeopardy style competition that tests knowledge in Middle School level science and math. This website https://science.energy.gov/wdts/nsb is a great resource for information about the Bowl.  You can also see videos from this year’s nationals and also sample questions.   

 

The subject areas are middle school level Math (yes, even though it is Science Bowl, Math is a big part of it), Earth & Energy, Physics & Chemistry, Astronomy, and Life Science. 

 

WRMS has a comprehensive Science Bowl program that has been sending a team to the regionals for the last several years.  Last year our team won the regionals and placed second nationally.  The group meets once a week, until the Regionals in January/February 2017 and then continue on until April (if they make the nationals).  Every student who makes the program is expected to demonstrate excellent citizenship at WRMS, keep school first and maintain excellent grades, and attend every meeting.  The meetings are fun but also quite intense with lot of self-study, discussion of topics, quizzes & buzzer practice sessions. 

 

Some things to remember:

 

(1) These tryouts are for **CURRENT SIXTH & SEVENTH Graders ONLY**  [Eighth graders who are going to high school next academic year, can try out for the High School Science Bowl]

(2) Walk-Ins are NOT allowed, you have to register.

 

If you are interested in trying out, click on the link below and register for the pre-test.
