  • And now for a “Transportation Tip” about riding the bus. If you’re ever planning to take a bus that’s not your own — like if you’re going to a friend’s house after school — you MUST bring a note from home to the main office NO LATER than your grade level lunch. Again, do NOT wait until the end of the day to get a bus pass — because there isn’t time and you’ll miss the bus! See Ms. Argenal in the office with any questions.

  • 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 TWO weeks, so get decorating, Wolves!!
