  • We begin today with WOLF PACK PRIDE!  The WMS Math Counts Team put their “numerical knowledge” to the test at the Regional Northern Virginia MATHCOUNTS Competition at George Mason University on Saturday. The team made a strong showing — highlighted by 8th grader Lynelle C., who earned HIGHEST SCORE of any APS student, and finished in the top 25-percent in the region!  Congratulations to all of our contestants on a great season.  Way to go, human-calculator wolves!! [clap]

  • Wolf Pack Pride continues with sports!  The WMS Boys Basketball Team is looking to stay undefeated with a matchup on the road against Gunston Middle School today at 3:15.  Let’s root them on to victory, and Be a Part of the Pride.  Go get em’, baller wolves!! [clap]

  • It is the Day of Reckoning, everybody!  TA teachers will be distributing your 2nd Quarter report cards this morning.  Be sure to take them home, get them signed, and return the detachable portion to your teacher.  Questions about your grades?  See your grade level counselor.  Good luck, wolves!

  • Attention 8th graders — or should we say, rising 9th graders?! Your high school Course Request Forms must be completed and returned to your counselor, Mr. Tuttle, by this FRIDAY at the LATEST. There are a ton of fun, interesting, and challenging classes to choose from at Yorktown. But if you miss the deadline, you may not get the one you want. So stop procrastinating, and turn-in your CRF!! See Mr. Tuttle with any questions.
