  • Attention 6th and 7th graders! Believe it or not, but it’s already time to sign-up for next year’s classes! Course Request Forms — the CRFs — must be turned-in to your counselor by next FRIDAY at the latest. If you miss the deadline, you could get stuck with a class that you don’t really want. So stop procrastinating and complete your CRF! See you grade-level counselor with any questions.

  • And there’s also some incredible classes at Yorktown for our outgoing 8th graders to consider.  Counselors from YHS were here yesterday to discuss your options.  But if you still have any questions, but sure to meet with your grade-level counselor ASAP — or you might miss out on your first choice.  CRFs must be completed and returned by _____________.

  • And now for a Technology Tip from Ms. Solomon:  The latest iPad update has arrived!  APS is asking all students to upgrade their iPads to “iOS 11” as soon as possible.  You can do the upgrade yourself at home.  Just go to “settings” then select the “software update for iOS 11” — and you’ll be done in minutes.  See Ms. Solomon — or ask one of your computer-savvy friends — with any questions.

  • Calling all actors, singers and dancers!   Auditions for the WMS Spring Musical — Beauty and the Beast, Jr. — will continue TODAY during ASP 1 and 2 in the auditorium.  In addition, there will be a sign-up for Backstage Crew — all those technical jobs “behind-the-scenes” that help bring the show to life.  See Mr. Brown with any questions or for more information.  Good luck, thespian wolves!!
