WILMINGTON — Wilmington Middle School opened its doors this week to sixth-graders and their families to tour the building and to walk their class schedule.

More than 150 sixth-grade students toured the building, and each student had the opportunity to pick up schedules, maps of the building, and take tours of the school to begin feeling comfortable with the building.

Project Trust and Wilmington Middle School ABC volunteers “were so awesome for helping the middle school to host the new sixth graders,” said Assistant Principal Brian Camp.

WCS open houses

All Wilmington Middle School students will have the opportunity to attend its open house 4 to 6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 14.

“It will be a great opportunity to get acquainted with teachers and staff, walk their schedule, and see what’s new,” said Camp.

Open house for Holmes, Denver and East End elementary schools will be 5 to 7 p.m. Monday.

Wilmington High School’s open house will be 4 to 6 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 18.
