  • We begin today with WOLF PACK PRIDE!  The girls Ultimate Frisbee season come to an end last Thursday with a lightning-shortened game against Gunston Middle School.  Despite DOMINATING the possessions and some truly outstanding frisbee handling by 8th graders Isabelle and Abby — the Wolves lost a heart-breaker:  3 to 1.  Even still, it was a GREAT season for girls Frisbee, and they represented the Wolf Pack with PRIDE.  Way to go, frisbee wolves!! [clap]

  • And speaking of frisbees — it’s YOUR TURN, gentlemen!  Practices for the Boys Ultimate Frisbee Team begin TODAY after school in the gym.  Interested “spinners” are encouraged to sign-up on the activities board by the cafeteria — or just come on by.  Whether you’re an old-pro or a first-timer — ALL are welcome!  See Mr. Smolinski with any questions.
    .
  • The WMS Kindness Club’s “Hurricane Relief Fundraiser” kicked-off TODAY before school, and will continue until FRIDAY, October 26th.  Donation boxes will be available every morning in each grade-level holding area before TA.  Just look for your counselor to make a donation — either cash or checks are happily accepted.  All money raised will go to relief organizations providing essential help and services to the victims of Hurricanes Florence and Hurricane Michael.
    .
    And to make things a little more interesting — how about a friendly competition?  If YOUR GRADE raises the most donations, then EVERY TA in that grade will be entered into a raffle — and whichever TA is picked from the winning grade will receive a special token of gratitude.  Anything you can give will make a HUGE difference for Hurricane Relief.

  • Attention 6th and 7th graders — It’s time to GET DOWN and BOOOOOOOO-gie!   Just in time for Halloween, the WMS Spook-tacular Skeleton Stomp is coming at you — courtesy of the WMS PTA.  The 7th grade party is scheduled for TUESDAY, October 23rd; and the 6th grade party is one week later, TUESDAY, October 30th — both during ASP 1 and 2 in the cafeteria — so you can still take the late bus home. There will be food, a DJ and dancing, games, raffles, prizes and more. And please — despite the Halloween theme — NO COSTUMES.
