  • Spirit Week - December CORRECTIONLet’s start things off with WOLF PACK PRIDE!! It’s SPIRIT WEEK here at WMS! Thanks to all the students and staff who dressed up and helped make Decade Day a blast-from-the-past.  You’ve got school spirit — yes you do!!

  • Wolf Pack Pride continues with some exciting news about our most creative wolves.  The results are IN for this year’s PTA Reflections Contest.  Students were challenged to represent this year’s theme, “Heroes Around Me,” through an array of artistic expression — and their projects were INCREDIBLE.
