  • We begin today with WOLF PACK PRIDE!  The WMS Art Department has completed its Scholastic Art showcase, on display NOW in the display cases across from the Main Office.  The student works being showcased were all award winners this year, receiving numerous honorable mentions, silver keys, and even GOLD.
    .
    Projects encompass a range of artistic techniques — each one unique, expressive and stunning in its own way.  So be sure swing by the main office and take a look.  Way to go, artistic wolves!! [clap]
    .
  • And now for an important Technology Tip from Ms. Solomon:  SOL Testing begins NEXT WEEK, and this year we’re doing things a little differently.  For the first time, students will be using their iPads to take the SOLs.  So it’s more important than ever that you bring your iPad to school FULLY CHARGED.  Get into the habit NOW of charging EVERY NIGHT so you won’t forget later.
    .
    Also — and this is the MOST important thing — all iPads MUST be upgraded to the latest “operating system” IMMEDIATELY.  Like — TODAY!!!!  Any iPad that hasn’t been upgraded by 3 p.m. this afternoon will be LOCKED OUT — and you’ll need to see Ms. Solomon to get it unlocked, upgraded, and possibly WIPED in the process.  So just upgrade you iPad already.  It’s now or never, wolves!!
