  • We begin today with WOLF PACK PRIDE!!  The Williamsburg Concert Orchestra performed at the District Orchestra Assessment on Saturday — and they absolutely ROCKED — receiving the highest possible rating of SUPERIOR from all four judges.  Plus, they even earned A’s in all subcategories for their stage performance. It was a stellar representation of the WMS Music Department.  Congratulations to all of our performers.  Way to go, musical wolves!! [clap]

  • March Madness Tournament of Books, 2019The 3rd annual WMS March Madness Tournament of Books has arrived!  Sixteen of your favorite books are going head-to-head — and YOU get to vote on the best-of-the-best.  All this week — your TA, Wolf Time, or even your classes can work together to fill out a bracket. Then starting on March 11th, you can go online and vote!
    .
    Will Mr. Feeney’s TA defend their title as reigning champs? Will Maze Runner — ranked #1 — make it all the way to the championship… or will a Cinderella story emerge?  Good luck, wolves, and may the best book — and TA — win!
