Student-Created for Student-Use.
Being a student at James Workman Middle School means much more than simply showing up with a backpack and leaving with homework assignments. At JWMS, students and staff communicate, learn, and create in a growing technology-based environment. Our mascot, the Bighorn, embodies strength and perseverance - two qualities that our students possess. The Crag website is meant to be the digital home of our JWMS Bighorns, a place where they can stay current, celebrate achievements, and appreciate middle school life.

Our Mission . . .
The mission of The Crag is to provide a communication device within the educational community of James Workman Middle School. We strive to provide excellent, creative, student driven (made) content.
JWMS Bighorns celebrate Jeans for Troops Day!
On November 12th, JWMS students and staff wore jeans to show their support for our troops and veterans! As a school we collected donations and were able to send over $500 to the GI GO Fund. Thank you bighorns for supporting our troops this Veteran's Day!
Club CJSF also made donation at the beginning of November to Operation Gratitude through the USO. Club CJSF donated over 25 pounds of candy to be sent to the troops overseas.
Congratulations to Bighorn Platinum Club!
Students who earned a GPA 3.0 or greater for Trimester 1 were able to take part in our first ever Bighorn Platinum Club event: an outdoor movie night, sponsored in part by Jessup Auto Plaza. Take a look...

Why did we choose the name "The Crag"?
According to Nature Works, the bighorn sheep prefer to live in areas full of rocky slopes they can climb in order to evade predators. The definition of a crag is as follows: "A steep rugged mass of rock projecting upward or outward." Since the JWMS Bighorns are always climbing toward continued academic success, and since the school website should be their digital "home" away from home, we thought naming our website "The Crag" would be a tribute to the spirit of the Bighorn. Enjoy the site!
