Community Outreach

The Outreach committee is dedicated to helping parents and students reach out to the local community to make a difference in the lives of those in need. The annual Giving Tree, a partnership with Waterbury Youth Services, provides holiday gifts to children who might otherwise not receive any. The Raffle generates scholarship money for the Waterbury Partnership Program, which enables two students from Waterbury enrollment in WMS Middle School for 6th, 7th and 8th grade. Additional outreach activities occur on an as needed basis.
