If your child has not already, they must fill out this form to list all of the activities they have done at WGMS (or at their other school if they are new to WGMS). This will go below your portrait in the yearbook. 
It must be done from the student's MISD Google account.

Attention 6th grade parents
Updated immunizations are required by The State of Texas for entry into the 7th grade.  Now is the time to make sure that your student is up-to-date and your school has the proper documentation on file. If your child does not meet the requirements, he or she will not be able to start the 2019-2020 school year or obtain a student schedule at orientation. If you have any questions, please contact your school nurse.
