Happy Friday, TigerShark Families! 

This past Tuesday, our 6th graders had a  5-hour experience at the Robinson Nature Center (RNC). RNC staff  facilitated three outdoor team building activities, one teacher-led team building activity, and one planetarium show for your students while they were there. The stations were spread across the nature center grounds and inside the building. Many students stated they enjoyed the trip and can’t wait for the next Field Trip.

We are also excited to announce that over 20 of our musical Tiger Sharks will be performing alongside the marching band for an event called "Future Marchers Night" at 7PM. This performance will take place at the WLHS Football game.

Is your child looking for a activity after school?  Beginning in October, Wilde Lake Middle School’s After School Intramurals will begin.  Interested in participating in the Memory Book club or Art Club?  Have your child stop by the front office to pick up a permission slip.

Students and/or staff that have an egg allergy (anaphylaxis reaction) will need to have the flu vaccine administered in the doctor's office. Registration will close five days before the clinic.
