  • We begin today with a special request from “wolf-bot” Jim S. So listen up!
  • Hello, everybody!  I’m Jim, and today I’m here representing Mr. Dudek’s 8th grade “Robotics” team for a project we’re working on.  I’m sure that many of you have heard of “pet adoption” centers for dogs and cats… but did you know that small mammals like hamsters, rabbits, ferrets and others can be adopted, too?  Unfortunately, very few of these small animals are ever adopted — and many of them are euthanized every year.  So the Wolfbots are trying to figure out WHY this is happening!  Please take a moment to help in our research by completing a short, online survey.  Just use your iPads to scan the QR code from your TA teacher, or use a computer by logging into your Google account then clicking the link in the “Morning Announcements Blog” section of the WMS website.  Thanks for your help, wolves!

  • This is a reminder for all students taking the “Credit by Exam!” Your test is scheduled for Tuesday, November 8, at 9:00 am at Wakefield High School.

    Este es un recordatorio para todos los estudiantes que van a tomar el “crédito por examen”. El examen es el martes, 8 de noviembre, a las 9:00 de la mañana en la escuela Wakefield. Por favor, recuerde que no hay escuela ese día – debido a la elección presidencial – por lo que tendrá que tener su propio medio de transporte para ir a tomar el examen. Hable con la Sra. Soto Villalba si tiene alguna pregunta, y ¡BUENA SUERTE!!
