  • We begin today with WOLF PACK PRIDE!  The WOLFBOTS 6th and 7th grade robotics teams competed at a tournament in Falls Church this weekend — and their robots ROCKED!  The 6th graders won the top award for Core Values & Teamwork, while the 7th graders took 5th place in their division.  Way to go, Wolfbots!! [clap]

  • And now for a “Transportation Tip” about riding the bus. If you’re ever planning to take a bus that’s not your own — like if you’re going to a friend’s house after school — you MUST bring a note from home to the main office NO LATER than your grade level lunch. Again, do NOT wait until the end of the day to get a buss pass — because there isn’t time and you’ll miss the bus! See Ms. Argenal in the office with any questions.

  • Today is your LAST CHANCE to donate sneakers to the WMS Earth Club’s shoe recycling drive.  This national recycling campaign cuts down on landfills and helps to protect our environment.  Just drop off your unwanted sneakers in one of the bins next to the cafeteria or the main entrance.   Do what you do, and reuse a shoe!!

  • The Pennies for Puerto Rico Fundraiser is in full swing — sponsored by the WMS Kindness Club! This month, your donations can help the victims of Hurricane Maria. And to make it a little more interesting, each grade level will compete to see who can collect — not the most money — but the most “positive points.” Here’s how it works: Each penny in your grade level jug is worth a “positive point” — OR you can add a “negative point” to other grades by putting silver coins — or dollar bills — into their grade level bucket.
    .
    But no matter which grade gets the most points, Puerto Rico still wins! So break out your piggy bank and let’s see who can “make the most change” for Puerto Rico! See Ms. Schaefer, Mr. Johnson, or Ms. Zeller with any questions.

  • Got some unused school supplies? Ms. Winter’s “Wolf Time Class” is collecting school supplies to donate to students in need. Organizers will be visiting TAs this week to collect anything you’ve got: binders and notebooks, paper and pencils, glue sticks and scissors — anything and everything helps.  Donate school supplies today — and make the world a better place tomorrow!!
