  • Attention 8th graders!  Due to the snow, the Writing SOLs have been postponed until TOMORROW — and will continue until TUESDAY of next week.  Once testing does begin, here are a few things you’ll need to remember when going to your testing locations:  you will NOT be allowed to bring your backpacks, water, snacks nor ANY electronic devices — including phones, iPads, gaming consoles, smart watches. or anything else. But you SHOULD bring a pencil or pen, and a BOOK to read in case you finish early — but again, no electronic readers. If you are not sure where you’re testing, just ask your TA teacher or check the postings outside of the cafeteria and library. Good luck on the SOL, 8th graders!
  • This is a reminder for the WMS Girls Basketball team — your CLEAN uniforms must be returned to Ms. Boyers as soon as possible. Again, Girls Basketball — turn in those “unis.” The end-of-the-season basketball party will be scheduled as soon as they are returned.
  • Calling all ballers and hoopsters… it’s time to kick-off the annual Hoops for Heart Fundraiser, in partnership with the American Heart Association! Participants can earn great gifts and cool prizes — all while raising money to help research and fight heart disease. Students in all grade-levels will receive their fundraising information and envelopes in PE this week. Then save-the-date for March 24th, when the school will host a Hoops for Heart Celebrate in PE, complete with basketball games, half court shooting contests, and hula hoop competitions. Do your part for Hoops for Heart!
