  • 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.
    .
  • REVISED TA picture scheduleSmile for the camera! Over the next 2-weeks, the WMS Yearbook Staff will be taking TA pictures for the entire school! But due to the 7th grade Outdoor Lab field trip, the schedule has been revised. Here’s the updated rundown — 6th grade TAs go TODAY and tomorrow —  8th grade TAs will be photographed on Thursday and Friday — and the 7th grade TAs will be last, next Monday and Tuesday.  And finally, 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 about the new TA picture schedule.

  • Calling all 8th grade applicants to Washington-&-Liberty High School!  There will be an important meeting for everyone who applied to W&L — this on WEDNESDAY during 8th grade Wolf Time in room 203.  Students will be meeting with High School counselors to learn more about their academic and elective options for 9th grade. But again, this session is ONLY for students who have already applied to Washington-&-Liberty.  See Ms. Brenckle or Mr. Stapler with any questions.

  • 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.

  • Believe it or not, but the 2nd Quarter is rapidly coming to a close! And you know what that means: it’s almost time for the Wolf Paw Drawing!!! But due to the 7th grade Outdoor Lab field trip, the drawing has been pushed back to next week THURSDAY, January 30th — the last day of the quarter.  So you’ve got a whole week to turn in those Wolf Paws, and be eligible for some great prizes.  For a sneak-peak at the Wolf Paw drawing, you can check-out the display case by the library.

  • Calling all math lovers! Math Counts will be meeting TODAY during ASP 1 in room C106 with Ms. Janney. All 6th, 7th, and 8th graders are invited to do math problems, play math games, and perform many other math activities. It’s all math — all the time at Math Counts!! See Ms. Janney or Mr. Mencarini for more information.

  • And now for a “Transportation Tip” about riding the bus. If you’re ever planning to take a bus that’s not your own — like if you’re going to a friend’s house after school — you MUST bring a note from home to the main office NO LATER than your grade level lunch. Again, do NOT wait until the end of the day to get a bus pass — because there isn’t time and you’ll miss the bus! See Ms. Wielechoski in the office with any questions.
