  • Wolf Pack Lunch -- 3QWe begin today with WOLF PACK PRIDE!  There’s an “end-of-the-quarter” tradition to celebrate this week: the Wolf Pack Lunch! It’s a free pizza party to recognize those students who embody all the best that Williamsburg has to offer. It’s also a chance for students to talk one-on-one with our administrators, and to share their thoughts and concerns about the school.
    .
    Your teachers have selected honorees from every grade and every team.  Those deserving students are all listed on the screen now — and should also have received an invitation from their school counselor. If you see your name, be sure to go to your designated classroom this FRIDAY during your grade-level lunch for all the pizza you can eat — 6th grade in room 231; 7th grade in room 102; and 8th grade in room 107. Please DO NOT go to the cafeteria first — just go directly to your pizza lunch.  We can’t have the party without you! See Ms. Mays or your TA teacher with any questions.

  • And now for a message from the PE Department:  Congratulations to all of our students for surviving the Dance Unit — you’ve got the moves like Jagger!  But starting today, everyone is reminded that you may NOT bring your phones to PE.  Once again, neither phones nor any other electronic devices will be allowed in PE, starting TODAY.

  • Hey, 7th grade — How would YOU like to be on the Yearbook Staff next year? Then you need to act fast! The application deadline is April 1st — and that’s NO JOKE. This select group of students meet during TA and Wolf Time all year long — taking pictures, learning graphic design, and creating a keepsake for the ages. And while it’s NOT a class for a grade, it’s still a highly rewarding club and resume booster. Just swing by room 137 for more information and to get an application from Ms. Kontos.
