  • 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.

  • The 2020 Yearbook is conducting a survey about your POP CULTURE favorites — singers, movies, video games, and more! Students AND teachers are encouraged to go to the Morning Announcements Blog, click the link to the Pop Culture Survey, then cast your vote!  The survey will be available until this FRIDAY.
  • It’s time to hit that diving board and make a SPLASH!  The WMS Dive Team is recruiting divers for the new season — which  begins next TUESDAY after school — and all you need is a towel, a swim cap, and nerves of steel!  Interested athletes should see Ms. Hogwood this week during your grade-level lunch for more information. Good luck, divers!

  • And now for a “technology tip” from Ms. Solomon! If you are having any problems with your school-issued iPad — whether it’s password problems, not connecting to the internet, glitching apps, cracked screens, or ANYTHING else — please submit the online “Student Tech. Help Request” form through the WMS website. Forms may be submitted from any device with an internet connection.  And remember — if you can’t use your APS iPad for homework, you can always use a personal iPad or computer. Ms. Solomon’s got the solution! So submit today — and get yourself back online.

  • Join the fight for women’s rights! This summer, our country will celebrate the 100 year anniversary of the 19th Amendment — which guarantees a woman’s RIGHT TO VOTE. But here at WMS — we’re starting the celebration early. This FRIDAY, all students and staff are encouraged to wear PURPLE and WHITE — the primary colors of the Women’s Suffrage Movement. And then at each grade-level lunch — the students with the most “suffragette spirit” will win some cool prizes! So wear your purple and white this FRIDAY — and show your support for women’s rights!

  • And finally today — there’s a crisis “down under” that sending shock-waves around the world!  Student reporters Milly P. and Keira D. bring us the latest on the Australian bushfires.
