The L.A.T.E. Show

LATE Show!!

The LATE Show is an all-night lock-in at WHS for our WMS 8th grade girls to help with their transition from middle school to high school. Read more about our mission.

The LATE Show -- which stands for "Leadership and Training Event" -- was originally created in 2001. Mrs. Amanda Sommer, Miss. Alyssa Fox and Mrs. Jaimie Backhaus continue this annual tradition as they organize the next LATE Show.

After the LATE Show of 2014 , one 8th grade girl wrote on her evaluation sheet at the end of the evening, "I can't wait until I can be a LATE Show leader when I'm in high school." Another wrote, "I made new friends and I know a lot about high school now!" One comment really made us chuckle. "I wouldn't mind repeating 8th grade if I could come to the LATE Show again!"

To learn more about The LATE Show program or to become involved in this annual event, please contact Mrs. Amanda Sommer ( or Miss. Alyssa Fox ( or Mrs. Jaimie Backhaus (
