Weddington Middle School and Walter Bickett partnered a few years ago when Walter Bickett was identified as one of the elementary schools whose students could benefit from a little help around the Holidays! Our WMS students, in turn, bring in loose change for 1 week every December in order to raise money in an attempt to make the Holidays a little better for the Walter Bickett students. This is a great philanthropical opportunity for our students encouraging them to participate in giving back to their own community.
Although this is led by our school counselors, the PTSO assists the effort by soliciting volunteers to count and tally the money collected in each homeroom. Of course, the homerooms make it a competition to see who can raise the most money. Student Council members will shop, wrap and present all the gifts to selected Walter Bickett students before winter break.
This annual drive is conducted in December and runs for 1 week. We have been fortunate enough in past years to provide approximately $10,000 worth of gift to the Walter Bickett student population. And in an effort to make donating easier, we are providing the opportunity for parents to donate online!

And as always, we thank you for your contribution.
