Tiger with mouth open

It’s a Great Day to be a Tiger!  

Winona Secondary and Winona Career & Technical Center are excited to offer the Class of 2023 and their parents a Financial Aid Night on September 28th at 6:00pm in the WSS auditorium. Please make plans to attend. According to WCTC Counselor Mrs. Tracy Carter, you don’t need to bring a thing to this meeting.  She will provide you with informational materials and even a pen so you can take notes.

In other career and tech news, on Tuesday, September 27th, the Culinary Arts students and their instructor, Mrs. Libby Carson, visited the Holmes Community College program. This is a great opportunity for high school students to see what a community college has to offer in the field they are interested in possibly earning a degree and working.

WHS is proud of the following students who were selected to participate in this year’s Leadership Montgomery Youth Team: Will Gammel, Bailey Holly, Janey Beth McRae, Alexis Myers, Cristina Seals, and Molly Tompkins.  There will be a orientation meeting for the parents of these students on Thursday, September 29th at 5:30pm at the Montgomery County Extension Office.

This week’s Tiger Spirit Friday theme is Can’t Stop that Tiger Glow!” - Neon Day.  Let’s see those neon colors!  Your WHS Tiger Football Team will be playing this Friday night at HOME against Zachary LA.  Game time is 7:30pm.  Let’s fill the stands in support of our Tigers. 

The WJHS Football team will be playing on October 3rd at home vs JZ George.  The WHS Volleyball team will be in action in a pair of away games on Thursday September 29th at Water Valley and on Tuesday October 4th at Grace Christian School. Coming up on October 1st, the WHS Pride Band will be in action at the Copiah Marching Festival at Copiah Academy.  They will again March at the State Competition on Saturday October 8th at Grenada. 

WMCSD students are taking their first nine weeks benchmark assessments.  These assessments give teachers and students valuable information on progress made toward mastering grade-level standards. We ask that you support students being successful in academics by:

  • asking them what they are learning, 
  • making sure they complete homework assignments,
  • encouraging them to read regularly, and 
  • motivating them to do their best on all assessments.  

 Students of all ages could benefit from a regular bedtime, limited screen time, and not having devices in their bedrooms at night.  If you have questions about how to help your child academically, you can visit our website for parenting tips at winonamontogmerycsd.com or go to the MS Department of Education website at mdek12.org for parent resources.

 Benchmark Assessment Schedule can be found by clicking HERE.

 P-EBT Information for parents.  Students who were enrolled in WMCSD on the last school day of the 2021-2022 school year (May 20, 2022) are eligible to receive P-EBT benefits.  Parents will receive emails from the Mississippi Department of Human Services with status updates on any requests. New cards will be issued to all eligible P-EBT participants.
