  • Welcome back! We hope everyone had a restful Thanksgiving Break last week — and found something to be thankful for.  But now it’s time to get back to business.  This first announcement is for all 6th graders on the WHEEL.  Today is the first day of your new class rotation.  So be sure to check with your TA teacher if you’re not sure where to go, and definitely hustle up this afternoon so you get there on time — and make a good first impression on your new teacher.

  • 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.

  • Did you miss Picture Day last month — or did your picture not turn out so well?  Then you’re in luck — because “Picture Make-Up Day” is next TUESDAY in the auxiliary gym during all grade-level PE classes. Here’s what to do:  if you haven’t taken a picture yet this year, then print a “Retake Form” from the WMS website and bring it with you.  OR if you’d like a NEW picture, then you must bring your unwanted picture packet with you to exchange.  See Ms. Argenal in the main office with any questions.  Say cheese!

  • And now for our weekly “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.
