  • Hey, 6th graders — LIGHT IT UP!!  The 6th grade NEONTASTIC dance party is scheduled for TODAY during ASP 1 and 2 in the cafeteria. There will be music and dancing to a live DJ, great food, a photo booth, games, raffles, and plenty of great prizes. And be sure to wear “brightly colored clothes” to match the neon theme. The NEONTASTIC dance party — It’s gonna be “lit!”

  • The WMS-PTA Book Fair is officially OPEN!! 6th, 7th, and 8th graders will all have a chance to visit with their English classes — but anyone is welcome to stop by either before or after school, or during your lunch period.  Plus on Thursday and Friday, your parents are invited to the “after-hours” Book Fair during Parent-Teacher Conferences.  So don’t forget to bring your money — and get yourself a good book!

  • And speaking of Parent-Teacher Conferences — Tell your parents!  Arena-style conferences are THIS WEEK — Thursday from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.; and Friday from 7:30 to 11:30 a.m. No appointment is necessary, just come on in and have a chat.  What could be better — your parents and teachers, alone in a room, talking about YOU!!

  • And now it’s time for some WOLF PACK PRIDE!!  The WMS Model UN Team put on an AMAZING performance last weekend at the McMUN Conference at McLean High School.  7th graders Whitney C. and Allison K. both walked away with “Best Delegate” awards, while several other Williams-burgers received Commendations and Honorable Mentions.  Way to go, MUNner wolves!! [clap].  There will be NO Model UN meeting this week, but the next conference at GWMUN is coming up fast — so participants are reminded to turn in ALL paperwork by this THURSDAY.  See Mrs. Carlson with any questions.
