  • It’s the last day of a short week as we prepare to head-out for Thanksgiving Break!  But before you hanker down for some turkey and football, this is just a reminder that we will be on a regular schedule today — which means that Wolf Time will proceed AS NORMAL.  It is NOT a pass day.  But just hang in there kids:  T-minus 7-hours, 30-minutes — and counting!!
    .
  • And now for some WOLF PACK PRIDE!  The WMS Model UN Club hosted WOLFMUN over the weekend — the first ever Model UN conference in Williamsburg history!  It was a rousing success — with over 60 delegates from schools all over APS.  A special thanks goes out to all of our Wolfpack volunteers who worked the event; our Keynote speaker, Mr. McDermott; to Ms. Winter and Mr. Schonfeld for their support; and of course to our amazing custodial staff for making our school look so… AMAZING.  Way to go, MUNner wolves!! [clap]

  • 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!!
    .
  • In light of the holidays, the final Donut Hero for the PTA “No Frills Fundraiser” will be announced next FRIDAY.  Which means:  there’s still time to donate!!  The PTA is trying to raise 40-THOUSAND dollars to help support our school and shared community. As of today, we’re nearly three-quarters of the way to that goal — so we need to make ONE LAST PUSH.
    .
    And remember, every time your parents donate to the fundraiser, YOU are automatically entered into the DONUT HERO drawing — and could be the winner of a free Duck Donuts breakfast for your entire TA!! So go home and tell your parents to break out their checkbooks for the No Frills Fundraiser.  Just go to the “WMS PTA” link on the WMS homepage, then select “No Frills Fundraiser” to make a donation. Thanks, wolves!!
