  • We begin today with WOLF PACK PRIDE!  The WMS Girls Soccer team cruised to victory over Jefferson yesterday, shutting them out 7 to zero.  Five different players got in on the scoring, including 8th graders Shay M. and Ellie S. with TWO goals apiece!  Don’t miss the LAST GAME of the season next TUESDAY at home against Swanson, as the Wolves angle for their second consecutive County Championship.  Way to go, soccer wolves!!

  • A reminder to all students who stay after school — you MUST report to your ASP 1 activity IMMEDIATELY following the final bell.  Students will NOT be allowed to “roam the halls.”  And if you leave the building — even just to the bus loop — you will NOT be allowed back inside.  See your grade level administrator with any questions.
