  • Today we will be following the A-Day schedule. That means you’ll be attending periods 1, 3, 5, and 7 — so be sure to double-check that you’ve got the correct books and binders for class. Again, this is an A-Day. See your TA teacher with any questions.

  • Smile for the camera! The 2020 Yearbook will be finishing up all TA class pictures today. And there’s just a couple — Mr. Luengo, Ms. Mentch, and Ms. Karki.  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 we can see everyone’s faces!  See Mr. Schonfeld with any questions.

  • Attention WOLFBOTS!  The Wolfbots Robotics meeting has been CANCELLED for today — but will be back next week at its regular time.  Once again, there will be NO Robotics after school today.
    .
  • 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.

  • Attention all musical theatre wolves!  Auditions for this year’s Spring musical — Mary Poppins, Jr. — are scheduled for next MONDAY and TUESDAY during ASP 1 and 2 in the auditorium.  Performers should be prepared to sing a song — even “Happy Birthday” would be just fine — and recite a nursery rhyme as part of your audition.   And even if you don’t want to perform ON stage — the production needs plenty of “backstage” help, too!  Stage crew sign-ups will also take place next week after school.  See Mr. Brown with any questions — and break a leg!!

  • The WMS Check-In program will be hosting a pizza fundraiser TODAY after school outside of the cafeteria and in the main lobby.  All proceeds will go to the World Wildlife Foundation — to help victims of the Australian brushfires. So bring your money and your appetite — and support the Australian recovery!

  • 2Q Wolf Pack Lunch -- 2020And now it’s time for WOLF PACK PRIDE!! All students selected for the Wolf Pack Lunch are reminded to come to the Library Conference room today during your grade-level lunch period — for all the pizza you can eat! And it’s a chance for you to talk one-on-one with our administrators, and to share their thoughts and concerns about the school.  Please DO NOT go to the cafeteria first; but come directly to the library. We can’t have the party without you! See Ms. Mays or your TA teacher with any questions.
    .
  • And now for a technology tip from Ms. Solomon!  If the home page in your Canvas app is BLANK or just isn’t working — here’s a quick fix. Go to the Settings app on your iPad, swipe down and tap “Student”, then toggle the “Reset cache on next launch” button. Finally, re-open the Canvas app — Search for Arlington Public Schools-Student, and log log back in.  The home page SHOULD start working again. If not — or if you have any other problems — please submit a Tech-Help Request form.  And remember — Ms. Solomon’s got the solution!

  • That’s all for now, but stay tuned for the 2nd Quarter WOLF PAW DRAWING — coming up immediately following the Morning Announcements.  If your name is selected, please come to the main lobby and claim your prize!  Good luck, wolves!!
