  • We begin today with WOLF PACK PRIDE!  Socktober was a smashing success here at WMS — with students donating a virtual truck load of socks and winter gear to help the homeless.  The WMS Kindness Club has tallied all of the TA donations — and here are the winners for each grade:
    — In 6th grade — Ms. Young’s TA!
    — In 7th grade, Ms. Willet’s TA!
    — And in 8th grade, Mr. Mencarini’s TA!  Congratulations! All three of those TAs will get a special TA breakfast on Friday, December 1st. And thanks to everyone for participating — your “kindness” will make a big difference.  Way to go, Socktober wolves!! [clap]
    .
  • And speaking of “kindness” — be sure to bring your loose change to school this month for the Pennies for Puerto Rico Fundraiser!  Not only will you be helping the victims of Hurricane Maria — but you could also earn bragging rights as the “kindest” grade in school.  Here’s how:  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 — in 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.
    .
  • And now for an important message from our school librarians.  Right now, there are more than 7-HUNDRED overdue library books — and we need them back!  So check your backpacks, your lockers, and your bookcase at  home — and RETURN YOUR LIBRARY BOOKS!

  • The WMS Debate Team will be holding TWO important practices this week — TODAY and FRIDAY during ASP 1 in room 1A6.  Participants will be preparing for the upcoming tournament, so don’t miss it!  Debaters may also go to Ms. Jones for additional help with their cases any day this week during 7th grade lunch.

  • Sister Circle will be meeting TODAY during ASP 1 in room 233. Come out for a little Girl Talk — and a lot of fun activities! See Ms. Cameron with any questions.
    .
  • The next meeting for “Latinas Leading Tomorrow” will be TODAY during ASP 1 in room 214. This week’s focus will be learning leadership skills — both in the classroom, and in the community.  See Ms. Winters with any questions.

  • Hey, big talker!  The WMS Speech team will be holding an informational meeting TODAY during ASP 1 in room 1A6.  Categories include: dramatic performance, duo performance, reciting a famous speech, impromptu speaking, and much more.  This is your chance to be HEARD!  See Ms. Jones for more information.

  • The Best Buddies Club will be meeting this FRIDAY during WOLF TIME in the cafeteria. Members and allies are invited to come make friends — and make a difference with some amazing kids. But please be aware that in order to participate, you MUST get a pass beforehand from Ms. Rogers in room 108.  Thanks, Buddy!!
    .
  • Who wants pizza?? The Model UN Club will be selling pizza and cookies this FRIDAY — right after school by the cafeteria and in the main lobby.  It’s just 2-dollars, and all money raised will go to support the upcoming WOLFMUN conference and other Model UN activities.  Come hungry!

  • How many pairs of ratty old sneakers do you have lying around the house? Well, don’t throw them away — because they could help to SAVE THE WORLD!! You heard right: the WMS Earth Club is collecting tennis shoes for a recycling drive — to keep them out of landfills and to protect our environment.
    .
    Just drop off your unwanted sneakers in one of the bins next to the cafeteria or the main entrance. Shoes will be collected through this FRIDAY.  So do what you do, and reuse a shoe!!
