  • We begin today with WOLF PACK PRIDE!!  The first round of Writing SOLs is COMPLETE. Congratulations to our 8th grade Cavaliers and Rams for performing so well under pressure — and now you can finally relax.  Way to go, test-takers!  [clap]
    .
    Although there is no testing scheduled for today, 8th graders should still remain in their TA this morning — as there is NO 8th grade Wolf Time today.  Then, testing resumes TOMORROW for the 8th grade Hokies and Patriots teams.  Students are reminded to FULLY CHARGE your iPads overnight, and check with your TA teacher for room assignments or with any other questions.
    .
  • The library will be OPEN today for students to check out and return books.  Again, with the break in the testing schedule, the library will be OPEN.
    .
  • The Earth Club will be hosting a bake sale — this FRIDAY after school in the in front lobby and by the cafeteria  There will be a delicious assortment of cakes and goodies — all for just 2-dollars each.  All money raised will help support the Earth Club and its mission to make WMS a “greener place.”  Bring your appetite!

  • Jump aboard the College Awareness Bandwagon! WMS is holding a door decorating “college competition” this month. Just find out your TA teacher’s alma mater — that means what college they went to — then decorate your TA door with their college colors, the mascot, and at least 10 fun facts about the school. The Student Services Staff will select the best college booster from each grade — and award Wolf Paws to the entire TA!! Judging begins in ONE week, so get decorating, Wolves!!
