  • Did you miss Picture Day last month — or did your picture not turn out so well? Then you’re in luck — because TODAY is “Picture Make-Up Day” — in the Auditorium from 8 to 11 a.m. Here’s what to do: if you haven’t taken a picture yet this year, all you have to do is show up. OR if you’d like a NEW picture, then you must bring your unwanted picture packet with you to exchange. And remember — if you don’t take a picture, then you WON’T be included in the WMS yearbook. See Ms. Argenal in the main office with any questions. Say cheese!
    .
  • Attention MUNners!!  Help is needed to prepare for the upcoming WOLFMUN Conference — TODAY and FRIDAY during ASP 1. And then on THURSDAY — there will be an important meeting for conference participants and Chairs.  See Mr. Carlson for more information, or with any questions.
    .
  • Calling all math lovers! Math Counts will meet TODAY during ASP 1 in room WW 1. All 6th, 7th, and 8th graders are invited to do math problems, play math games, and perform many other math activities. It’s all math — all the time at Math Counts!! See Mr. Mencarini for more information.

  • Get ready for a BOOK BONANZA! The Academic Book Fair is coming to WMS — from December 5th to 12th in the library. 6th, 7th, and 8th graders will all have a chance to visit with their English classes — but anyone is welcome to stop by from Monday to Friday either before school or during your lunch period. Plus, the fair will also be open late-night this THURSDAY and next TUESDAY to coincide with the Winter Concerts.  So don’t forget to bring your money — and go get yourself a good book!
    .
  • It’s better to GIVE than to RECEIVE! The “Fill the Cruiser — Holiday Toy Drive” is in full gear.  NEW and UNWRAPPED gifts may be dropped-off in the grade-level bins in the library between now and December 14th.  And everything that’s collected will be given to Arlington County children in need this holiday season.
    .
    And whichever grade donates the most will be entered into a raffle to receive a special token of gratitude. So PLEASE, bring in a gift — or three — and help to make a HUGE difference for the children of Arlington! Spread kindness where you may, and donate to the Toy Drive TODAY!!
