Become an Active Volunteer!

If you are a parent and want to volunteer in any school activity, or help in the parent room, come in and talk to our parent liaison. She'll be happy to coordinate this for you. Please be aware that it is APS policy that all volunteers must have a background check on file with APS. If you do not have one currently on file, the parent liaison can walk you through the process.

Family Engagement Policy

As a guardian of a student at Washington Middle School, I commit to being engaged in the educational process of my student by:

  • making sure my student is prepared for school: Uniform, Agenda, Homework, 8:45 a.m. (Make Good Decisions)
  • Reminding my student to abide by the school rules, positively engage in their education and help to create a caring environment. (Respect Others & Solve Problems)
  • Staying informed of my student's progress and following APS and WMS policies: Accountability Card, Agenda, ParentVue, Website, Emails and communicating with staff and teachers. (Praise or Refocus)

Want to Know How You Can be More Involved With Your Child's School Community?

Washington works better as a community when our families feel welcomed on campus and able to be engaged as partners in the decision-making process for their students' education.

If you have a concern about your student's academic or social-emotional well-being, we ask you to bring this to our attention immediately by communicating with the teacher(s) or school staff. Our goal is to ensure your student's safety and well-being.

Washington Middle School Support Programs


Supporting Parents "El Cafecito"

The goals of El Cafecito are to engage families to help make decisions at the school level and to develop out parents and guardians as leaders in the school community.

We promote training for parents and guardians to help you stay engaged with your mid-schooler, by helping your understand the academic expectations of middle school, snd also through teaching you how to advocate for your child within the APS community.

Support School Safety

WMS parents meet with administration and school safety officials to keep our students safe.  School safety is priority one at WMS.  Parents advocate for a clear discipline policy and support our Safe School Ambassadors program (SSA).  SSA is a student leadership program that trains students to be leaders in our school.  Students speak up when problems are small so that they don’t grow into bigger problems.  We have 65 students currently serving as ambassadors at all three grade levels.  Parents support the SSA program by serving as advisors, volunteering at celebrations, and by continuing to advocate for a safe school.

Support College Preparation

Join a group of parents who support high expectations and goals.  WMS students are college-bound. Whether that means CNM, UNM, or other post-secondary education, we know that kids can’t stop after high school.  That’s why parents organize parent “actions” to keep our academic programs high, by:

  • advocating for dual language and low student-teacher ratio
  • encouraging hands-on science
  • working with neighborhood schools, churches and non-profits to support the lottery scholarship
  • hosting visits by CNM and UNM
  • working with Hacia La Universidad College Prep Program
  • and more! 

Support After School Programs

We know how important extra-curricular activities are to students’ excitement and enthusiasm for learning.  Parents serve on our After School Programs Committee. Parents meet with funders, volunteer during club meetings, and help us make the program stronger by helping staff design the program. 

Uniform Assistance Policy

Through the generosity of The Assistance League we are able to provide uniform vouchers to 115 students on a first-come, first-served basis.  Request forms are available during registration and are distributed at the beginning of the school year.  We are also able to provide emergency uniforms and coats to every child who needs them throughout the school-year, while supplies last, thanks to the generosity of St John Thrift.
