  • It’Clean Out Your Closet Campaigns time to “Tidy Up,” Williamsburg!  This month, we’re hopping on the KonMari Bandwagon as the WMS Kindness Club launches its “Clean Out Your Closet Campaign.”  From now until March 22nd, students and staff are encouraged to donate clean, gently used, and quality clothing to “The Clothesline for Arlington Kids” — a charitable organization that provides for deserving, school-aged children in our area.
    .
    Donation bins are located outside of the library. Please be sure that your donations follow the guidelines displayed on your screen: just clothing, it MUST be clean AND in good condition, and certain items — like used socks and underwear — nobody wants those.  Donate to the Kindness Club fundraiser — and SPARK JOY for those in need!

  • 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!
