  • We begin today with WOLF PACK PRIDE!  The WMS Model UN Team had a rip-roaring conference this past weekend at HAMUN — the Holton Arms School in Bethesda.  Participants debated important contemporary issues, and sought to find collaborative solutions to world problems.  Special props to 6th graders Eric C. and Tyler C. — who were both recognized as “Outstanding Delegates!” Way to go, MUNner wolves!! [clap]  The next Model UN meeting will be this THURSDAY during ASP 1 in room 202 — where they’ll be preparing for the upcoming McMun and GWMUN conferences.

  • WOLF PACK PRIDE continues for the WMS Tennis Team — who will be competing in the Stockard Championship Singles Tournament at Bluemont this afternoon.  Our student-athletes will be taking on the best competition in the county.  So let’s support our team, and root them on to victory.  Good luck, tennis wolves!! [clap]  Participants are reminded to meet at the bus loop at 11:30 today for the ride to the courts.

  • And now for a Technology Tip from Ms. Solomon:  Your student iPads MUST be set with a passcode on the homescreen.  A passcode provides basic security, and ensures that your APS Google files, StudentVue app, and personal items remain safe, private and secure. So set up your passcode TODAY!!
