During the Month of October, Wildwood Middle School FFA members, and the 7th Grade Science Department paired to run a Haunted Courtyard event under the supervision of FFA Advisor, Ms. Poole and Science Teacher, Mr. Alexander (Mr. A). The idea started as a lesson in Mr. A's class covering stimuli and the nervous system. As an experienced Haunted House builder, he graciously offered his expertise to WMS students and helped create a fundraiser for the FFA Chapter. Students spent time weeding and pruning plants in the courtyard during the start of school. They eagerly planned "carnival game" activities for students and their families to take part in while they waited on night to fall for a trip through the screams of the Haunted Courtyard. Students stayed after school and came in early over the weekend to build and secure walls in the courtyard, audition, and practice "scare" roles, and organize games and decorations. This event has directed students back to critical thinking and problem-solving as they have collaborated to organize this event. The first night was a great success with over 120 guests! Some of our guests' favorite exhibits have been the "Touch a Tractor," and the "Haunted Chickens" brought in by WMS FFA members, and the sensory table made with corn Jefferson FFA built before their departure to the National FFA Convention. The event was open from 6:30 until 9:00 on October 23rd and 24th and will be open again to the public on the 30th with an additional Trunk-or-Treat event hosted by our staff and FFA parents. We hope to see you there!

Oct. 28, 2021: The threatening social media post reported last night was found NOT credible following an investigation by our partners in law enforcement. Although investigators determined it was a copy of a threat circulated in neighboring school systems, the threat raised concern among our students, staff, and families. We are deeply grateful for the swift response of law enforcement to this and any threat to the safety of our school communities. Additional law enforcement officers will be at Jefferson High School this morning to help answer questions and reassure students and families. We appreciate everyone's trust and support as we maintain the safety of students and staff.
