  • Today we will be following the A-Day schedule. That means you’ll be attending periods 1, 3, 5, and 7 — so be sure to double-check that you’ve got the correct books and binders for class. Again, this is an A-Day. See your TA teacher with any questions.

  • Attention 8th graders!  This is a reminder that the Hokies and Cavaliers will be visiting Arlington Tech TODAY from 9:30 to 11 a.m.  The Patriots are scheduled to go on Thursday.  Once again, the Hokies and Cavaliers are attending the Arlington Tech orientation this morning.  See your TA teacher with any questions.

  • If you’ve got leftover Halloween candy — today is your LAST CHANCE to 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. To participate, just drop your candy in the collection bins located outside of each grade-level holding area. Once again, this is the final day of candy collection — and to help spread KINDNESS to others!

  • Believe it or not, but the 1st Quarter is now OVER!  Which means: it’s just about time for the Wolf Paw Drawing!!! That’s right — the 1st Quarter Wolf Paw Drawing is this FRIDAY during TA. But you MUST submit your Wolf Paws TODAY in order to be eligible. And if you’d like a sneak-peak at the prizes, go check-out the display case by the library. There’s some great stuff in there — so stop dawdling and turn in your Paws NOW!

  • Listen up, 7th graders! Are you passionate about writing? Are you always making up stories or creating movies in your head? Then the WMS 7th grade “NaNoWriMo” writing team is the perfect place for YOU.  Just come to room C106 during any 7th grade lunch period during the month of November — and use the time to create, to write, and to share your ideas. Challenge yourself to WRITE for an entire month — see if you can reach a certain word count, or even draft an entire novel!  See Ms. Han or your English teacher with any questions.  And remember — writers are always RIGHT!!

  • Calling all members of the WMS boys Soccer team!  The concussion test is scheduled for TODAY right after school in room 136.  Concussion testing is MANDATORY for all players, so don’t miss it.  And if you’ve already had a concussion test on your own, be sure to tell Ms. Hogwood during your lunch period.

  • If you participate in an after school program here at Williamsburg — then we’ve got a very important announcement for YOU.  The WMS Yearbook will be taking group pictures of all WMS clubs and after school activities over the next few weeks.  First on the schedule — this Thursday during ASP 1, Yearbook will be taking pictures of the following clubs:  Model UN, Making Movies, the TSA, Wolfbots Robotics, Chess, Act 2 Art, Act 2 Choir, and Act 2 Drama. Again, if you are in any of those groups, your Yearbook picture is scheduled for TOMORROW after school.  Stay tuned for more information about additional Yearbook club pictures coming next week.
