Dear Wiggs Parents and Students,
Welcome from the Principal Welcome to Wiggs Middle School, “The School of Choice.” Wiggs is an exception for several reasons. Wiggs provides all avenues to create and continue the WHOLE CHILD. Our students will walk in each day learning and earning and walk out with more knowledge, respect, high values and morals, and becoming productive young men and women in our society than anywhere else. Wiggs students are respectful, courtesy, take their academics seriously, and are involved in many activities that bring recognition to the school and the community. School year 2016 – 2017 was an amazing year. Our students did well on STAAR exams, Nationally known Dual Language GT program, won academic competitions in National History Day ( 18 students competed at the state level – most of any Middle schools in EPISD), UIL distinctions, Hometown Frontier District competition, Science/Math Club state competitors, SWEEPSTAKES performances by our Band and Orchestra, athletic teams competed in all levels with the 8th Grade Boys District Wrestling Champions. Wiggs students are involved! There are several opportunities for you to grow in our “family”. Several Clubs – Chess, Art, Coding, Science, Students Council, History, Math, UIL and more – are available to all students and become part of the Wolverine Athletic experience. This year all Clubs and Sport Teams will have one Community Service project. Choose one or choose them all. Being part of these will enhance your mind and experience while at Wiggs. The Wiggs Administration and Staff are dedicated to the well-being of your child each day. We will do magnificent things this school year.
