  • Today we will be following the B-Day schedule. That means you’ll be attending periods 2, 4, 5, and 6 — so be sure to double-check that you’ve got the correct books and binders for class. Again, this is a B-Day. See your TA teacher with any questions.

  • Attention VJAS!! There will be a MANDATORY meeting for all students participating in the Virginia Junior Academy of Science — TODAY in room 115 during 8th grade Wolf Time and 7th grade lunch. See Mrs. Warden for more information — and to get a pass for the meeting.

  • The WMS Kindness Club will be holding a Bake Sale Fundraiser — TODAY right after school outside of the cafeteria.  All money raised will be donated to the World Wildlife Fund — and helping the animals that were affected in the Australian Bushfires.  Cookies and brownies are just 1-dollar each.  Don’t forget your money!

  • Science, Technology, Engineering and Math! If YOU’D like a career in STEM, enjoy building things, and like working with POWER TOOLS — then Mr. Dudek’s ACT 2 “Inventions” class is for you!  This “hands-on” class is being offered for the 2nd semester — from February to June — and meets after school 2-days a week. The sign-up sheet is posted on the Activities Board by the cafeteria.  See Mr. Dudek in room 129 for more information.

  • And now for a “Transportation Tip” about riding the LATE bus. If you’re ever planning to take the LATE BUS after school — you MUST have a signed bus pass for both ASP1 and 2. If you do not have a pass — you will NOT be allowed to ride the late bus. Again — the pass must be SIGNED for both ASP1 and 2 in order to ride the Late Bus. See your grade-level administrator with any questions.

  • TA Pictures -- ScheduleSmile for the camera!  Over the next 2-weeks, the WMS Yearbook Staff will be taking TA pictures for the entire school!  Here’s the schedule:  6th grade TAs go first, next Tuesday and Wednesday — then 7th grade TAs next Thursday and Friday — 8th grade TAs will be Monday the 27th and Tuesday the 28th — then all make-ups and retakes will be shot on January 29th and 30th.

    The photographers will be arranging you into 2-lines for the picture… OR, if you’re feeling more imaginative — you’re encouraged to creatively stage and arrange yourself for the picture.  Just be sure to practice your pose in advance — and make sure we can see everyone’s faces!  See Mr. Schonfeld with any questions.
