Welcome to West Rowan Middle School! Whether you are a parent, student, staff member or just an interested member of the community, we are glad you have chosen to visit our website. We are proud of our school which has a tradition of educational excellence, sportsmanship and service. We hold ourselves to a high standard of not just teaching students what they need to know today, but also of supporting them in developing the skills they will need to compete in the future.
I have included some photos of recent events at West Middle that clearly demonstrate learning is more than what is read from a book. We invite you to visit West Middle to find out more.
Our daily Bulldog News program is written, performed and edited by students.
At the annual dodgeball game to benefit Relay for Life, West Rowan students entered the competition in teams. The winning team played last year's winners who are now freshmen at West High School. The games not only raise money for a great cause, but also keep rivalries alive for months.
West Middle is part of a district-wide initiative through health and physical education classes to encourage students to develop healthy lifestyles through better nutrition choices as well as exercise. Here, our new fitness room is now part of the daily routine for students in exploratory classes.
The world of the internet can be a fascinating place that opens many doors. As teachers and parents, though, we must ensure that where the internet is taking our kids is a place they should be. At West we closely monitor all websites and computer usage. We urge parents to do the same at home. Facebook postings can result in problems that disrupt the school with unnecessary rumors and hurtful language. Summer is upon us and that means lots of leisure time. Let's make certain that the internet is put to good use.
