Volunteer Opportunity!

The Mentor Project is returning to Wattsburg Area Middle School this Fall! This after-school mentoring program works in partnership with students at Penn State Behrend to bring exciting lessons and activities to our youth. The Mentor Project helps students grow in areas such as resilience, growth mindset, gratitude, and empathy. Members of our community are invited to serve as Community Mentors for The Mentor Project. Community Mentors serve an important role in providing safe, consistent relationships for WAMS students that are in the 6th grade. Your one hour a week commitment will assist the college students with games, activities, and group discussions. All community mentors must go through an application, clearance, and training process. If you are interested in this volunteer opportunity, please contact the middle school principal, Christopher L. Paris, at 814-824-3400 or email, [email protected].

Attendance Reminders

Educational Trips

Pre-approval from the principal is mandatory and should be submitted at least two weeks prior to the commencement of the trip. The destination must be stated and the educational activities that the student will be experiencing must be listed. If the trip is deemed not educational in nature, it will be not be approved and the days will be marked unlawful.

Absences from School

It is the responsibility of the parent or guardian to submit, in writing, a reason for their child’s absence as soon as possible after the child returns to school. The middle school allows 3 days to submit an excuse after the child returns to school. After 3 days, the day will be marked unlawful. If an excuse is returned after the 3 days, it will be documented an excuse was submitted for that day(s) but it will still be marked unlawful. The attendance office sends reminders to submit excuses as well.

Please refer to the student handbook or School Board Policy #204 for more information about attendance.
