WMS Is Cowboy Country

We Are How We Treat Each Other. Be The Change!

Willcox Middle School is nestled in southeastern Arizona, in the City of Willcox, and we serve grades 5–8. Located in the high desert and enjoying our wonderful temperate weather all year long, visitors and residents agree it is one of the best cities in Arizona. Come visit us in northern Cochise County—near the mining community of Dos Cabezas and the Chiricahua Mountains.

Our excellent administration, teachers, and staff members are here to provide not only a wonderful education but also a network of support for all of your Cowboys and Cowgirls. We want your children to be successful both in school and in life, and we provide many challenging opportunities to help them learn, develop talents, and become well-rounded individuals. Whether it is in the classroom, on the court or field, participating in our fine arts, agriculture, or another program, we strive for excellence!

We invite and encourage you to browse our website, learn more about us, saddle-up to one of our events, and of course contact us if you have any questions, and/or just want to say “Howdy!"

A Message from Principal Chaim

Dear WMS Families,

Since our school reopened for in-person learning on January 11, our staff has been very active at WMS. Our teachers began meeting with several families for action plans and tutoring. Our staff has done their due diligence by emailing students and parents weekly about assigned and upcoming work to complete in Google Classroom. The teachers are making every effort to inform students and parents of the upcoming assignments, projects, quizzes, and exams. Our staff is also providing opportunities to improve their grades and become successful in school. Please encourage your children to participate in homework club on Mondays and Wednesdays.

Friday school happens twice a month. We will hold our next Friday school on Friday, February 26 from 8:00 a.m. to noon. As you can see, we are all working hard to wrap up the third quarter successfully! 

Parents and guardians, I cordially invite you to attend spring parent-teacher conferences on March 16 and March 17 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. This is the time to come in and talk to your child’s teachers. This semester, we will hold a different style of parent-teacher conferences! It will be round-table style, where you will be able to see your child’s teachers all at one time. Conferences will be by appointment only. Please call or email your child’s teachers to make the appointments. We look forward to having you! When we work together for the best interests of our children, everyone wins. 

On a final note, I want to take this opportunity to highlight some of the wonderful things that have happened at WMS over these past two months. We had our WMS spelling bee champion and spelling bee runner-up compete against other schools in the county over Zoom. Although we could not hold the competition in person, it moved forward in a virtual forum. Both of our students, Luke Perolino and Aleah Félix, represented us proudly. The wrestling and girls basketball teams have also represented our school proudly through continued success at matches and games in their ongoing seasons. This proves to show that, in the midst of difficulty, we can always find the opportunity to move forward. We are resilient! We are Willcox! Go, Cowboys and Cowgirls!
