  • REVISED TA picture scheduleSmile for the camera! It’s Day-4 of TA pictures for the 2020 Yearbook. Here’s the rundown: 8th grade TAs will be photographed TODAY — 7th grade TAs will be next Monday and Tuesday — and all grade-level Make-ups and retakes will be shot next Thursday and Friday.
    .
    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 TA pictures.

  • Ready for some science? Here’s a joke. You Matter. Unless you multiply yourself times the speed of light squared. Then you energy. Get it???
    .
    Got it.  But now I’ve got something that really “matters” — The WMS Science Fair is almost here!  Students, parents and staff are invited to check-out the AMAZING student displays during the Science Fair open house — this Saturday morning from 8 to 8:45 a.m. in the cafeteria. Then judging begins at 9 o’clock. One of these exhibits could change the world — so come on out, support your friends and classmates, and be an ENERGETIC part of the PRIDE. Science Rocks!!

  • And now it’s time for WOLF PACK PRIDE!  The boys basketball team took on Thomas Jefferson Middle School on the home court yesterday and notched a big win — 40 to 34.  8th grader John T. scored 11 points to lead all scoreres for the second consecutive game — but also got big contributions from Buddy S. with 8, Grant C. with 7, and Jack R. who was a perfect 4-for-4 from the foul line.  Another great game. Way to go, Baller wolves!! [clap].
