Thomas E. Weightman Middle School Is an Exciting Place to Learn

TEWMSWe know when you are planning a move, your child’s education is a high priority. We’re proud that middle school students who live in the WaterGrass community attend Thomas E. Weightman Middle School. The school’s vision is to offer a nurturing and safe environment that values diversity, provides academic focus, and challenges all students to achieve their potential.

And the learning doesn’t stop when school ends. This summer students have participated in the Summer Reading Challenge, an innovative program to keep kids involved with their education over the summer. Students are challenged to “Read for the World Record,” logging the time they spend reading. Even if they don’t break the world record, if they bring in a log of their minutes when school begins, they qualify for a fun Back-To-School Celebration.

It’s this kind of program that helps the Weightman Wildcats be excited about learning. Students also have the opportunity to participate in math competitions, speech contests, summer writing camp, and young readers programs. Also, students are rewarded with “Student and Citizen of the Month” awards and “Student of the Year” at the end of the year.

Thomas E. Weightman Middle School is a school where parents are actively involved. During the 2009/2010 school year, the school was awarded the Golden School Award by the Florida Department of Education. The award recognizes schools with exemplary volunteer programs, and requires that 80% of the staff are trained in volunteerism. A designated person acts as the School Volunteer Coordinator, and volunteers log hours that equal at least twice the number of students enrolled. The Golden School Award is a high honor, and shows that the community is involved with the school.

At Weightman, students can truly enjoy their school experience, no matter their interests. The Athletics department offers football, volleyball, basketball, soccer, and track. The school also offers chorus, band, and musicals. And the school regularly hosts events like family night, dances, book fairs, and other fun activities.

When you move into WaterGrass, your child can be a Weightman Wildcat when he or she is ready for middle school.
