  • We begin this morning with WOLF PACK PRIDE!  Today, we at WMS are honoring Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Students and staff were encouraged to PINK OUT by wearing the pinkest pink clothing as a show of support for survivors, fighters, and families of those affected by Breast Cancer.

  • Attention 6th graders — It’s time to GET DOWN and BOOOOOOOO-gie! Just in time for Halloween, the 6th grade Spook-tacular Skeleton Stomp is coming at you — courtesy of the WMS PTA. It’s scheduled for TODAY 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. However, since today is also “Pink Out Day” — the 6th grader with the pinkest pink outfit will win a prize!  See ya at the party!
    .
  • And speaking of Halloween — TOMORROW is the big day — All Hallow’s Eve! — and students are encouraged to dress up in your best costume for the occasion. However, there are some important guidelines that you need to follow. Basically, costumes must conform to the WMS dress code, not offend anyone, no weapons, no masks, nothing inappropriate. — and everything else you see on your screen. And if you’re not sure — just ask a teacher or administrator.  Thanks for understanding, and have a Happy Halloween!!

  • And as an extra incentive to dress up, the WMS Fitness Team will be holding a HALLOWEEN COSTUME CONTEST during all grade-level PE classes on Wednesday. So wear your scariest, most creative, unique, and SCHOOL APPROPRIATE costume — and you might win a TRICK or TREAT! “Ghoul” Luck, wolves!!
