  • Calling all students!  Mid-term grades are due TODAY!  That means if you’ve got any missing assignments or make-up work to do — it’s now or never.  So be sure to check Canvas and StudentVue, and contact your classroom teachers with any questions about your grade.  Get it done, Wolves!!

  • Read any good books lately? The “Talk about Books” Club” — a.k.a. TAB — will be meeting TODAY during all grade-level lunches in the library. No need to sign-up; just grab your grub, get a pass, come up to the library, and take a look at these Totally Awesome Books!!  See Ms. Tan in the Library with any questions.

  • The Gender Sexuality Alliance Club — aka the GSA —  will be hosting its first meeting of the year TODAY right after school in room 112.  All are welcome!  Whether you’re LGBTQ+ or an ally, it’s a great place to come together and support your friends and classmates.  See Ms. Bleakly with any questions.

  • Everybody, SING!!!  ACT II CHORUS will be holding its first class TODAY after school.  Participants are reminded to bring a pocket folder, water, and your best singing voice!  If you can’t make it today, please be sure to be there for the second class on Thursday.  It’s gonna be a BLAST.  Contact Ms. McTavish with any questions about Act II Chorus.

  • And speaking of Act II — there’s still time to sign-up for either of our Act II offerings:  Choir and Drama.  These classes meet twice a week after school, and grades DO count on your report card.  Interested students are asked to complete the Google Form on the Act II tab of the WMS website — even if you signed-up at the Activities Fair.  See Ms. Hogwood OR the Act II teachers with any questions.

  • Hey, buddy!  You need a ride?  Arlington Transit will be visiting WMS this THURSDAY with an exclusive opportunity for students.  You can purchase an iRide Smart Trip Card for just 2-dollars — which can be used to get around town on Metro and its fleet of buses.  No one is required to buy a card — but it’s a great deal if you want it.   Contact Ms. Mays in the main office with any questions.
