  • Today we will be following the B-Day schedule. That means you’ll be attending periods 2, 4, 5, and 6 — so be sure to double-check that you’ve got the correct books and binders for class. Again, this is a B-Day. See your TA teacher with any questions.
    .
  • Attention Act 2 Art students!  Class has been CANCELLED for this afternoon.  Mr. Skrzypek is not in the building today — so once again, there will be NO Act 2 Art after school.  But classes will resume as normal next week.
    .
  • The 2019 Winter Concert series is coming to Williamsburg — starting TONIGHT with the WMS Band, then the Chorus performs on Tuesday, and the Orchestra goes next Thursday — all at 7 p.m. in the school auditorium.  And then next FRIDAY the 13th — all three groups will be performing for the students during their grade-level elective periods.
    .
    Admission is absolutely FREE!  So come support your friends and classmates as they celebrate the winter and holiday seasons with beautiful music — and Be a Part of the PRIDE!!  And now, here’s a sneak peak of what’s in store. Roll tape!

  • Tis the Season for Giving Back to Your Community! WMS is sponsoring a Holiday Food Drive for the Arlington Food Assistance Center. Students and staff are encouraged to donate non-perishable food items — which will all go to deserving families in our community.  Collection boxes are located outside of the library, cafeteria, gym and auditorium — from now until December 17th.  See Ms. Scott with any questions.  Together, we can make a difference!
    .
  • Get ready for a BOOK BONANZA! The WMS-PTA Academic Book Fair is OPEN for business — in the school library from NOW until next THURSDAY, December 12th.  6th, 7th, and 8th graders will all have a chance to visit with their English classes — but everyone is welcome to stop by any day of the week — either before school or during your lunch period.
    .
    Plus, the Book Fair will also be open late-night — TODAY, next TUESDAY, and again next THURSDAY — to coincide with the three Winter Concerts. So don’t forget to bring your money — and go get yourself a good book!

  • Calling all amateur photographers!  The WMS Yearbook is now accepting pictures from Williamsburg students and families.  Pictures can include virtually anything from our shared Williamsburg community: Sports – Clubs – Academic Competitions – Field Trips – Friends – Family – Pets – Vacations – and more!! 
    .

    .
  • And now it’s time for WOLF PACK PRIDE!!  The WMS boys soccer team lost a heart-breaker to Swanson on Tuesday — 2 to 1. The Wolves started out strong with a beautiful goal from Jake O. and an assist by Caleb L.  But then Swanson tied it up on a corner kick — and they took the lead for good with a score in the final few minutes of the match.
    .
    Despite the loss, the entire team played a great game.  Way to go, soccer wolves — you’ll get them next time!! [clap]  Boys soccer AND girls basketball are both back in action this afternoon — hosting Thomas Jefferson Middle School.  Students and staff are invited to come out, root them on to victory, and be a part of the PRIDE!!
