Westerly Middle School

Where we create an inspiring, challenging, and supportive environment where students are encouraged and assisted in reaching their highest potential.


  • Dear Westerly Public School families: 
    This is a reminder that a meal benefit application 2018-2019 Meal Application can be submitted anytime during the school year to see if your children qualify for free or reduced meals.   You may pick up or drop off your meal application at any Westerly School building or visit in person at Tower Street School Community Center.  Contact Christine Miller at 401-348-2792 for more information.

    Today is National Bike to Work Day


    Attention 7th and 8th-grade students:  Come try out for the high school marching band dance line and color guard.  Tryouts are Tuesday, May 21st and Wednesday, May 22nd at Ward Federico Gym.

    Calling all artists!  WMS students will be submitting postcards again for summer reading.  We are looking for artists to design this year’s postcard. This year’s theme will be “A Universe of Stories”.  Pick up a 4x6 index card in the main office, create a design, and return it to the main office by Tuesday, May 21st.  One winner will be selected to have their design on all of the summer reading postcards!

    Attention all 8th graders.  There will be a meeting on May 20th after school in the WMS library for anyone interested in playing football next year for Westerly High School.  No prior playing experience is needed. Be sure to sign up for the late bus.

    In order to volunteer, go on a field trip, etc. you must have a current BCI. BCIs are good only for the current school year, therefore, most BCIs have expired as of 6/30/18. Please review the steps below for new and returning volunteers. 

    The current WPS Volunteer Process is on the WPS District website under Community/Volunteers.

    NEW VOLUNTEERS: Please complete the online 3 step Volunteer Process. This is at no cost to the volunteer. All three steps must be completed in order to finalize the volunteer process. 

    RETURNING VOLUNTEERS: Returning volunteers need to have an updated Local (RI State) BCI (Criminal Record Release form in Volunteer Process) done every year.  If there is NO personal information changes, you do NOT need to complete the application - only the BCI check.
