A Message From Mr. Noack
Welcome to Whitehall-Coplay Middle School! On behalf of the faculty, staff, and administration, I hope you will find WCMS an exciting place to learn and grow and that you will find the tools for your pursuit of excellence.
There are many components that will help you make this year an exciting one. We encourage you to be especially concerned about three areas that will be key to your success: your character, your relationships and the effort you put forth.
Your character is the most important aspect of you. It is what you stand for, how you treat people and what you do. The character traits you have developed by the end of the 8th grade may well stay with you for the rest of your life. So, it matters greatly as we all work to become generous, disciplined, honest, and kind. Since none of us comes close to being perfect in any of these areas, we need to be forgiving of others and to strive to improve. Be determined that you are going to work on yourself to become a better person.
Seek to develop good relationships. We all need friends and to be good friends. Be respectful to everyone: yourself, your fellow students, your teachers, your parents. Honor diversity; get to know people who are different than you and learn to appreciate their differences. Be a positive person; say “yes” to life. Be a team player as the WCMS functions as many small teams within one great team!
Finally, work hard and have high expectations for yourself. If you do not expect much of yourself, others may not see your strengths either. Set high academic and personal goals – to be the best you can be. There is no guarantee that hard work will always lead to success, but it very often does.
