  • 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!!

  • Calling all dancers, musicians, writers, filmmakers, and visual artists! The PTA Reflections Contest has been EXTENDED until next FRIDAY, November 3rd. So put your creative genius to the test and develop a project around this year’s theme: “Within Reach.” Just get a submission form and turn-in your entry to the “Reflections” box in the library. Go to the PTA website for more information.

  • SOCKTOBER continues on this month! And the WMS Kindness Club encourages everyone to donate socks, gloves, mittens, hats, scarves, jackets and blankets to help the homeless in Arlington over the winter. Just drop your items in your TA donation box to participate. And the TA in each grade with the most donations wins a TA breakfast! So be kind, and MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!

  • How would you like to be featured in a special section of the yearbook this year? From now until the end of October, the WMS yearbook is accepting pictures for both its “Summer Vacation” and “Now & Then” sections of its annual publication. If you’ve got some fun pics, just email them to elizabeth.briones@apsva.us or bring them down to room 136. See Ms. Briones with any questions.
