  • 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.

  • Hey, 7th graders! How would YOU like to be on the Yearbook Staff next year? The WMS Yearbook is now accepting applications for the 2020-2021 school year. This select group of students uses photography and graphic design to make a keepsake for the ages. But space is limited! To apply, first select Yearbook on your CRF — and then pick up an application from Mr. Schonfeld in the Library Classroom. Applications must be completed and returned by February 21st to be considered. The WMS Yearbook — Be a Part of the Pride!!

  • Wolf Pack Pride continues with boys basketball.  It was a battle of the undefeated teams yesterday, when WMS hosted Gunston Middle School for the biggest game of the season so far.  It was neck-and-neck until the third period — when Gunston pulled away and handed Williamsburg their first defeat of the year — 35 to 49.

    Props to 8th grader Buddy S. who tallied 9 points and four blocks in the loss — and to the entire team for playing hard until the final whistle.  Way to go, baller wolves — you’ll get them next time!! [clap]. Boys basketball is back in action with another home game this Thursday against Swanson.  So let’s pack the stands, support the team, and get back on a winning track.  Go wolves!!
