  • The 8th grade Writing SOLs are OVER… almost.  Make-up testing will be conducted TODAY in the library beginning at 8:30 a.m. — which is after the extended TA.  Test-takers are reminded to bring ONLY your fully-charged iPad — no backpacks, pens nor pencils, water, snacks, nor any other electronic devices.  See Ms. Cameron or your school counselor with any questions. Good luck on the SOL, 8th graders!
    .
  • As for everyone else, there will be an extended TA this morning — and then we’ll be following the REGULAR schedule, periods 1 through 7. However, students are reminded to please be considerate and QUIET when walking past the Library today — so as not to disrupt the test-takers.
    .
  • And now it’s time for WOLF PACK PRIDE!  The WMS PTA fundraiser has been a HUGE success — collecting nearly 7-THOUSAND dollars from generous donors like YOU.  That money will go to things like social events, Wolf Paw prizes, and field trip.  And also — DONUTS!!  For every 10-dollars your parents donated to the WMS PTA this week, your TA was entered into a special drawing.
    .
    And now — we’ve got the winner.  The recipient of the Donut Drop Drawing is:  Ms. Lawrence’s 8th grade TA!!  Congratulations, Ms. Lawrence’s TA will be receiving a free donut breakfast this morning during Wolf Time.  But wait — there’s MORE.  The PTA is extending the fundraiser for another week — which means there will be ANOTHER Donut Drop Drawing next Friday.  KIDS LOVE DONUTS! So please tell your parents to donate TODAY!
