Attendance Rap Contest Information


Encouraging regular school attendance is one of the most powerful ways you can prepare for success both in school and in life. When you make school attendance a priority, students like you are most likely to get better grades, develop healthy life habits, avoid dangerous behavior and overall a huge impact on academic success starting in kindergarten and continuing through high school. Here at Whitewater Middle, we want to ensure that all of you students have the tools to become confident, self-directed, life-long learners and productive citizens & it all starts with you being with us at school!

Rules/ Information about the contest:

  • This contest is open to all WMS Grade level students
  • Students that have signed up will meet on 11/6/17 for the first initial meeting
  • Students must write their own original raps, rhymes or poems that will be reviewed by administration
  • Students will have practice sessions in school starting on the 11/9/17, 11/14/17 & 11/16/17 and the final performance will take place on Friday 11/17/17 in the gym.
  • During the contest there will be a staff panel, a DJ, giveaways and a surprise celebrity guest.
  • This is also a PBIS incentive, so students must have at least $100 dollars on their paychecks to attend this event!
  • If you have any additional questions, please see Ms. Partlow or any of the School Counselors.

Key Resale Shop Award Recipient:  

I am excited to share that The Key Resale Shop, a thrift store that turns donations into dollars to support CMS schools, has selected six CMS schools as its first award recipients.  Each of these schools, one in each district, models academic growth and the ideal of serving children well regardless of economic status. Out of all the schools in District 2, Whitewater Middle has been selected as the 2017 award winner.  What a huge honor!  We look forward to being able to use this donation to further the work of our school community.

-- Beth Thompson!!
