Please help support the Middle School by donating used and new shoes at your schools collection box.
The WVW Middle School is starting a shoe drive campaign. This is a great way to empty closets, save the environment, help micro-enterprises, and make some money. The proceeds will be used towards educational experiences outside of the classroom for our middle school students. Please see the attached documents for additional information and a list of the micro-enterprise countries that will also benefit from our drive.
February 6th - The Middle school will kick off the campaign.
During the campaign our elementary buildings, high school, local colleges, synagogues, churches, gyms, and some businesses will also have collection boxes.
We would like your assistance in making this campaign successful.

Guest Teacher Program
The Luzerne Intermediate Unit #18 Guest Teacher Program is a service offered to our local school districts, Career and Technical Institutes and the Intermediate Unit programs in Luzerne and Wyoming counties. The purpose of the program is to train individuals with a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college in a variety of fields interested in serving as substitute teachers. The program provides substitute teacher training to people who have a bachelor’s degree but do not have a Pennsylvania teaching certificate. The blended training sessions, conducted by Luzerne Intermediate Unit professionals, will provide instruction in Planning and Preparation, Classroom Environment, Instruction, and Professionalism. This will be done in two parts. There is an online training and one ˝ day training onsite from 8:00 am – 1:00 pm. Guest teachers leave the program with an emergency permit issued by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) and the basic knowledge to be an effective day-to-day substitute teacher in the consortium school districts and/or Luzerne Intermediate Unit classrooms. The opportunities are rewarding and gratifying.
