  • It’s the final day of Random Acts of Kindness Week — and today’s we’re “paying it forward.”  If you’re kind to someone, then that person is more likely to be kind to someone else.  Just as a waterfall begins with a single drop of rain, one Random Act of Kindness can be passed on and on — bringing happiness to many others. Anthropologist Margaret Mead once said, “Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all who ever have.” Thanks to all the students and staff who helped to make this such a great week. Now let’s all pay-it-forward — and continue to cultivate kindness in our community!
  • And now for some WOLF PACK PRIDE!  The WMS girls Basketball Team played a game for the ages yesterday at home against Gunston.  Down 13 to 21 at the half, the Wolves came out on a rampage — sinking shot after shot and holding the Hornets scoreless for the entire 3rd quarter.  Williamsburg took the lead and never looked — winning a great one by a final of 39 to 36.  Way to go, Wolves!!  [clap]  The season wraps up at home next TUESDAY against Jefferson.  So let’s pack the stands, root our team to victory, and Be a Part of the Pride!!
