  • We begin today with WOLF PACK PRIDE!!  He shoots, he scores!  The WMS boys basketball team got their season started in grand fashion yesterday — beating Thomas Jefferson Middle School on the home court by a final score of 43 to 39.  8th grader Quinn C. had the hot-hand on offense, scoring 14 points and making it look EASY.   8th grader Nick K. also scored in double-digits with 12, while the entire team played excellent ‘D’ from whistle-to-whistle.  Way to go, baller wolves!! [clap]. The next game is scheduled for TOMORROW, when we host Gunston Middle School on the WMS hard-court at 3:15.  So come on down, pack the stands, and Be a Part of the Pride!

  • Newsflash everybody — the 2nd quarter ends TOMORROW.  So this is your LAST CHANCE to submit any missing or make-up work to your teachers.  Also, 7th and 8th graders taking semester-long electives are reminded that your NEW class begins on Monday, so be sure to check your schedule in StudentVue or see your counselor for more information.  This year is just FLYING BY!!

  • Just ONE DAY REMAINS for the WMS Electronics Recycling Drive.  So bring in cell phones, lap tops, cameras, batteries, or any other electronics — and they’ll be safely wiped and recycled. Just drop them in the bins by the main entrance or cafeteria. After all: Recycling today will make the world a better place tomorrow.  See Ms. Mentch or a member of the Earth Club with any questions.
