    If your child becomes ill or is injured in school, the Department of Education provides a School Health Aide (note: the School Health Aide is not a Registered Nurse or a Licensed Practical Nurse). Our Health Aide will administer rst aid for minor injuries. The Health Aide will also notify parents or the person designated on the student’s Emergency Card if the student needs to go home or to the doctor. The person picking up the child must sign a student release form. If an emergency occurs, and the school is unable to contact the child’s parent(s), 911 will be called.

    Please be sure that all emergency information for your child is complete and up-to-date.

    All medications that are to be taken during school need to be authorized by the student’s physician, and cleared through the School Health Aide and Public Health Nurse.

  • New cafeteria software called Harris School Solutions eTrition:

    Please be aware that beginning January 22, 2018 you will no longer have the capability to make meal balances electronically through schoolcafe. During this cut-over, we ask that you make all meal deposits to your child's account directly to the school that your child attends. If you currently make online deposits through schoolcafe, and have the reoccurring automatic deposit feature enabled, please login and be certain to tum this feature off.

    We anticipate that once the first phase of this transition is complete, and all meal balances and student eligibility statuses are verified for accuracy, a new online payment system will be reintroduced. This system will allow families to make online deposits to meal accounts (for a nominal convenience fee) again, as well as view your child's deposits and purchases.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work towards giving families more accessibility and control over their child's meal accounts.

More Info

  • Policies & Procedures
    Wheeler Middle School offers a rich and challenging standards-based curriculum, which addresses the developmental needs of young adolescents in a caring environment. Wheeler's curricula are aligned with the Common Core State Standards, and each grade level has designed specific standards for emphasis and study. Upon request, teachers will share their course syllabi with students and parents at the beginning of each new term.

    Students and teachers are organized into grade level interdisciplinary teams. These teams use a variety of instructional strategies, flexible blocks of time, as well as varied instructional and organizational arrangements, to ensure success for all students. When students and teachers are assigned to academic (core) teams, smaller communities of learners are formed, and teachers are able to monitor students' progress more closely.

    The exploratory and co-curricular components of the middle school address the students' need to explore a variety of recreational and academic interests, as well as opportunities to form positive foundations for life-long learning.

    The advisory component ensures that the students have at least one significant adult on campus that knows, cares about and supports his/her academic and personal development. Teachers use advisory to develop the 'whole child' and enhance each students' social & emotional well being.

    Please consult the Wheeler Middle School Registration Information Booklet for descriptions of the courses offered.

    The Transition Center provides an orientation experience that is designed to support the needs of students and families who are new to Wheeler Middle School. In the “Spirit of Aloha”, we want to make your recent move to our school as comfortable and informative as possible. The Transition Center is responsible for placement testing, familiarizing students with school regulations and procedures, and for conducting campus tours. While it is mandatory that students come through The Transition Center, it is a fun and lively environment that will make your student feel welcome on their first day of school.

    Our Transition Center is open
    Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 7:30am to 2:00pm. Transition Coordinators greet the new students in the office and take them to the Transition Center. During their time in the Transition Center, students take necessary math placement tests and reading assessments. We spend time reviewing the Student Handbook. The students need to complete the handbook and have a parent or guardian sign the handbook and then return it to school, so please ask them about it when they come home. The students get their school ID cards so that they can begin using the cafeteria, library and bus system. The students may choose to eat lunch in the cafeteria, take a home lunch out doors or they can eat in the Transition Center. After lunch the students are given their schedules and are taken on a tour of the school which helps them locate their classes. Most days students are finished in the Transition Center in time to attend their last two classes of the day.

    After students have been in school for about three weeks we invite them back to the Transition Center and ask them to complete a brief survey letting us know how they are doing and how they are adjusting to the new school and students. At six weeks this process is duplicated. They are encouraged to evaluate the school as well as the Transition Center at these times. The feedback we get from them is so valuable in making the transition to Wheeler Middle School easier for students who come in after them.

    Students are welcome in the Transition Center anytime. If they can’t find classes, feel lost or just need to talk about any issue the door is always open for them. We enjoy spending time with them and seeing them throughout their journey at Wheeler Middle School.

    Confidential & Voluntary: ASACS (Adolescent Support and Counseling Services) is confidential and free for military dependents. 

    Adolescents under the age of fourteen require parental consent for counseling services.  The program helps young people navigate the developmental years by addressing risk factors related to substance use concerns and factors that interrupt positive mental, emotional, and behavioral development. ASACS services are offered throughout the year at WMS and at the Schofield Barracks ASACS office.

    - Licensed Providers:  ASACS Counselors are licensed and credentialed, and are privileged through the Medical Command.

    -Levels of Care: ASACS provides 2 levels of care as seen below.
    • Early Intervention – Services address risk factors that interrupt positive mental, emotional, and behavioral development, as well as early intervention for youth with an onset of substance use.  Youth do not have to be substance involved to benefit from preventive counseling services. Examples of risk factors include a pattern of disruptive behavior, academic failure/truancy/lack of commitment to school, impulse control, depression/anxiety, social or coping skills challenges, social media/gaming related problems, family management concerns, difficulty negotiating a key life transition such as the move from middle to high school, or adapting to a new location. 
     
    • Outpatient Treatment – Tailored to each client’s level of severity, and designed to address concerns with youth assessed as having signs and symptoms consistent with a substance related disorder.

    -Prevention: ASACS promotes healthy adolescent development through prevention education by focusing on protective factors identified by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) such as self-worth, social competence, positive support, school connectedness and parental support.  Prevention groups may occur in the classroom, after school or at the ASACS Schofield Barracks office.
