  • And now it’s time for WOLF PACK PRIDE!  The WMS Geo Bee was yesterday — and it was a match for the ages!  Over 20 competitors from grades 6, 7, and 8 put their geography genius to the test, and battled it out for nearly TWO HOURS.  But in the end, there could be only one.  Congratulations to this year’s Geo Bee Champion: 8th grader Kekoa O!  Congratulations, Kekoa, and to ALL of this year’s competitors for a great match.  Way to go, Geo wolves!! [clap]
    .
  • But Kekoa isn’t done yet.  He now has to prepare for an even more intense contest:  the 2020 Arlington County Geo Bee — where he’ll be representing our school against some of the best minds in Northern Virginia.  Good luck, Kekoa!!

If you do not have a pass — you will NOT be allowed to ride the late bus. Again — the pass must be SIGNED for both ASP1 and 2 in order to ride the Late Bus. See your grade-level administrator with any questions.
