  • Attention all singers and theatre-lovers!  The WMS Act II Chorus and Drama classes started up this week — but there’s still time to sign-up if you’d like to join!  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.

  • Attention TENNIS TEAM!!  All tennis players are asked to please complete ANOTHER Google Form on the WMS website.  Sorry for the inconvenience, but there was a “glitch” on the original version you filled out last week. So, once again, all WMS tennis players MUST fill-out another Google Form — and it MUST completed before next week’s match against Gunston! Contact Ms. Hogwood with any questions.

  • It’s nearly time for Boys Ultimate Frisbee season!  The first practice is scheduled for next Tuesday, October 12th.  All are welcome to join — whether you’re an experienced player or just starting out.  Interested athletes should sign-up beforehand using the QR code outside of the cafeteria, or just come on down to the gym next Tuesday. See Mr. Smolinski with any questions.

  • Pop quiz — How much candy is sold for Halloween?
    .
    It’s gotta be MILLIONS.

    More like BILLIONS!!  According to the National Retail Federation, over 3-BILLION dollars worth of candy are sold every Halloween.  There’s M&Ms, Smarties, Reese’s peanut butter cups, Nerds, and so much more!

    Stop it — you’re making me hungry!!
    .
    So, I’ve got another question for you — what kind of candy do you think is the most POPULAR on Halloween?
    .
    I don’t know — but we’re gonna find out!  The WMS Library is hosting a “Halloween Sweet 16.”  Each week, students can vote on their favorite candy and sweet treat. And we’ll reveal the Champion right after Halloween.
    .
    To cast your vote, just go to your Library Canvas Course and follow the instructions.  And may the best candy win!!
