  • 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.

  • STAPLER:  Good Morning, Williamsburg!!  It’s me, Mr. Stapler, and I’m excited to be here this morning to announce a week’s worth of activities.
    .
    Tomorrow marks the beginning of “Red Ribbon Week” — from October 23rd to the 31st.  The symbolic Red Ribbon is meant to raise AWARENESS about the dangers of drug use — and to educate young people in our community about drug-free activities.
    .
    Our Substance Abuse Counselor, Ms. Sexton, and our School Resource Officer, Officer Reed, will both in the cafeteria all week long — engaging with students, answering questions, and promoting our goal of a drug-free school.
    .
    And one more thing:  we’d like to encourage EVERYONE to participate and show your support for Red Ribbon Week by following the THEME for each day.  Check it out!
    .
    On Wednesday it’s PAJAMA DAY; Thursday is TEAM JERSEY DAY; next Monday is SCHOOL SPIRIT DAY; Tuesday is CRAZY HAIR & SOCKS DAY; next Wednesday is RED CLOTHING DAY; and finally next Thursday is SUPERHERO DAY.
    .
    We look forward to having all of you join us for Red Ribbon Week 2019 — and to take the pledge to keep our community drug-free.  Thanks, Wolves, and BE A PART OF THE PRIDE!!
