  • Now that Halloween is over — chances are you’ve got a LOT of leftover candy.  So why not give donate it to a good cause?!  The WMS Kindness Club is collecting UNOPENED Halloween candy for “Operation Gratitude” — a charitable organization that sends care packages to Veterans, First Responders, and Deployed Troops.
    .
    The Kindness Club will be collecting candy before school — TODAY, MONDAY and WEDNESDAY of next week — in the donation bin located outside of the cafeteria. The Halloween Candy Donation Drive —  Give what you can, and help spread kindness to others!

  • And now it’s time for WOLF PACK PRIDE!!  The boys Ultimate team defeated Kenmore yesterday 13 – 0.  Nothing could stop the offensive line — not even the gusty wind!
    .
    Shout out to Ryan C., Joe D., Alan S., and Ben P. for leading the offense — and to Griffin L., Jonny D., Isaac F. and Xander S. for not allowing even a single score on defense.  Way to go, frisbee wolves!! [clap]
    .
  • The Best Buddies Club will be meeting TODAY during WOLF TIME. Members and allies who got a PASS to attend should go to room 108 immediately following the Morning Announcements.  It’s a chance to make friends — and make a difference with some amazing kids. See you there, and thanks, Buddy!!

  • Up next, we’ve got a special opportunity for all you book-lovers out there.  Ms. Cameron and Ms. Edme are launching an all new Williamsburg Book Club — TODAY during all grade-level lunches in room 110.  The first featured title will be “The Hate U Give” — winner of both the Goodreads Choice Award AND the Coretta Scott King Award.  Interested “readers” are encouraged to attend!  Just grab your lunch and head over to room 110.

  • Could your parents survive a day in Middle School?!  This fall, WMS welcomed over a THOUSAND parents to Back to School Night — giving them first-hand look at what their kids do everyday.  WOLF-TV student reporters Miles M., Sarah, C., and Mason H. were on the scene — and they’ve got the “inside scoop” on what happens when our parents and teachers get together. Check it out!
  • And now for an important announcement from our school librarians!  Do you have any OVERDUE LIBRARY BOOKS???  If you checked out a book from the school library in September or October — then it’s probably about time to turn it back in.  Teachers will be passing out overdue notices in TA next week — and students are asked to PLEASE look in your lockers today and at home this weekend for any overdues.
    .
  • How do YOU get around town?  The Mobile Commuter Store will be visiting Williamsburg next WEDNESDAY during all grade level lunches.  You’ll be able to purchase “Student SmartTrip Cards” — which provide for discounted rides on ART buses, Metrobus, and Metrorail.  The cards are just 2-dollars to buy — and then you can charge it with as much money as you’d like.  See Ms. Mays in the main office with any questions.

  • DC is a MAJOR sports town!  And to help you keep up on all the exciting action, student-reporters Wil T. and Taha O. — that’s ME!! — are ready to report from the sidelines.  Go get it!!
