  • 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.
    .
  • And now for some important information about HEALTH and SAFETY. Students and staff are reminded to PLEASE complete your online “qualtrics screening” every day before school.  And once inside the building, please wear your mask at all times, maintain social distancing, and wash your hands frequently. These measures are recommended by the CDC — and will help to keep our entire community safe.  Thanks for your help, wolves!!
    .
  • Believe it or not, but TODAY is the last day of the 2nd Quarter! So be sure to check StudentVue and talk to your teachers about any missing assignments or make-up work.  Again, grades close TODAY.
    .
  • And speaking of the end-of-the-quarter — it’s almost time for the Wolf Paw Drawing!!! If you’ve received any Wolf Paws this quarter, remember to put them into your grade-level box outside of the cafeteria by next WEDNESDAY for a chance to win some great prizes. The drawing is scheduled for next Friday, February 4th.  Good luck!!
    .
  • Get your “special someone” something sweet!  The WMS Sister Circle will be selling Candy Grams for Valentine’s Day, between now and February 10th.  They’re just 1-dollar for a lollipop and a gram, or 2-dollars for a candy bag and a gram!  Order forms are available from your TA teacher.  See Ms. Mays in the main office with any questions.
    .
  • Calling all actors, singers and dancers!  The WMS Spring Musical — The Addams Family — is coming soon!  Auditions are scheduled for next week Tuesday and Thursday after school in the Auditorium.  Plus, anyone interested in Tech Crew should also come on those days.  To learn more and for a sneak peak at the audition music, just scan one of the QR codes hanging around the school.  See Ms. Rosenthal with any questions, and break a leg!!
    .
  • The WMS Boys-to-Men Club will be meeting next Thursday in room 124 during ASP 1.  Participants will build friendships, develop leadership skills, and promote tolerance for all. Check it out — and make a difference in our school and our community.  Contact Mr. Gardner, Ms. Wielechowski or Ms. Sicer with any questions.
    .
  • And now it’s time for WOLF PACK PRIDE!!  FIFTEEN Williamsburgers have been selected to participate in the APS Honors Band Concert this weekend.  These talented musicians represent the best middle school musicians in all of Arlington County!
    .
    After just 3-days of rehearsal, they’re ready to perform an entire concert — scheduled for this SATURDAY at 4pm at Kenmore Middle School. So show your Wolf Pack Pride, support your classmates, and come on out to the show.  Way to go, musical wolves!! [clap]
    .
  • Wolf Pack Pride continues with a big announcement about the WMS girls basketball team. After 2-weeks of grueling tryouts, we’re proud to announce this year’s squad!
    • Congratulations to 8th graders Emily A, Kendall A, Abby F, Ciara M, and Rea R!
    • To 7th graders Fiona B, Rebecca G, Ava L, Ainsley L, Gigi O, and Chloe W!
    • And to 6th graders Tia A and Olivia B.  Way to go, basketballers, and welcome to the team!! [clap] The first game of the season is scheduled for next TUESDAY at home against Gunston.  Go get ‘em, wolves!!
      .
  • And finally, many students here at WMS have lived in this community their entire lives.  But some of us have lived all over the WORLD — supporting our families as THEY support their country.
    .
    For my LAST BROADCAST here at Williamsburg — before setting off on my own new adventure to BELGIUM next week — I’m here to tell you about the extraordinary lives of MILITARY BRATS.
