  • We begin today with WOLF PACK PRIDE! The WMS Tennis Team “paired up” for the “Stockard Championship Doubles Tournament at Bluemont” yesterday — and it was a match to remember.  Partners Drew W. and Dominic S. — aka The Double D’s — sailed to victory, claiming the tournament title without dropping a single set!  And the dynamic duo of Jacklynka S. and Sujee R. also brought their ‘A’ game — making it all the way to the semifinals.  It was a great job by all of our competitors.  Way to go, tennis wolves!! [clap]  The tennis team is reminded that the last practice of the season will be MONDAY after school for the whole team, for the final tune-up before the singles tournament on Tuesday.

  • As we continue our celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, students in the lunchroom today will be treated to a mix of trendy contemporary music from the Latina community.  You’ll probably recognize some of these songs — as many are cross-over hits and chart-toppers from the past few years.  Enjoy the fiesta, and remember — Hispanic Heritage is American Heritage!!
