  • Hey, everybody — are your ready to be KIND? The WMS Kindness Club is proud to present:  SOCKTOBER!!  All month long, students and staff are encouraged to donate new socks for the homeless.  But that’s not all:   new gloves, mittens, hats, and scarves, plus new or gently used jackets and blankets are also welcome donations.
    .
    Just place the items in your TA donation box to participate.  And the TA in each grade with the most donations wins a TA breakfast!  So do your part and be kind to those in need.  Together, WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!

  • Calling all Math Lovers! The “countdown” is on for Math Counts! The first meeting will be next TUESDAY during ASP 1 in room WW 1.  Students from all grades are welcome to come and have fun with numbers.  See Ms. Janney or Mr. Mencarini with any questions.  You can “count” on it!

  • Did you know that this week marks the half-way point of the first quarter?  Teachers will be submitting their mid-term grades by the end of the day.  So if you have any missing assignments or make-up work to complete:  it’s NOW OR NEVER.  And if you’re not sure, just TALK to your classroom teachers.  Remember, they really do want you to be successful — you’ve just got to SELF-ADVOCATE.  Get it done, wolves!

  • Listen up, Wolves!  That grungy old sweatshirt you’re wearing has GOT to go.  It’s time to show your Wolf Pack Pride — in STYLE!  And WMS PE Department has just the thing you need.  Check it out!

  • Finally today, Williamsburg is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month!  Roughly 55-MILLION people in the United States are of Hispanic or Latina descent.  This month gives us an opportunity to recognize and learn all about these amazing cultures — which have made such an enormous impact on our country for HUNDREDS of years.
    .
    And as an introduction to Hispanic Heritage Month, we’ve got a question for you:  do you know the difference between “Hispanic” and “Latina?”  Well, you’re about to find out!  Happy Hispanic Heritage Month, amigos!
