WMS Achieve 3000
Walton Middle School (WMS) has a national scholastic winner. WMS participates in a nationwide program called Achieve 3000. Students at WMS compete at the school level, state level and national level. Students are encouraged to continue to work on the program at home if they have Internet access. The competition consists of a class score, as well as individual scores. Points are earned by completion with 75% or higher on the first try. The classes have two competitions a year, one in the fall and one in the spring. The 2014 fall competition was won by one of Mrs. Amy Bennett’s classes.
During the 2015 Spring Competition WMS had some students who won not only at the school level, but at the state and national level. This means these students scored high on each program and completed the most, too. Trevon Randolph, 6th grade, won the state earning the most points for the day on February 25, 2015. Another 6th grader, Kaymon Miller, also won for the state earning the most points for the day on February 26, 2015. Special congratulations to these young men.
Elrod Vo is a very ambitious and motivated 6th grader. For the week of February 23-27, 2015, Elrod had the most points for the entire week. Next he had the most points in the state on March 3, 2015, and then on March 5, 2015, Elrod won the most points in the entire nation.
Special congratulations to all these students for their hard work and dedication. Congratulations to Mrs. Bennett for her help and encouragement.
