  • It’s the final day of testing for the Writing SOL — as the Hokies and Patriots wrap-up the writing portion.  Some students will also be taking make-up tests in the library.  As always, testers will NOT be allowed to bring ANYTHING to their testing locations except for a pencil and a book — and NO ELECTRONICS of any kind.  If you are not sure where you’re testing, just ask your TA teacher or check the postings outside of the cafeteria, the Gym, and the English trailer. Good luck on the SOL, 8th graders!
  • And even if you’re NOT testing today — students are reminded to be QUIET and CONSIDERATE when walking through the halls between classes. Teachers will be posted by the Gym, the World Language hall, and the Library to ensure that EVERYONE acts responsibly. Also, it is VERY important that all phones and iPads remain OFF and disconnected from the WMS Wi-Fi during testing. Thanks for your help, wolves!
  • Read any good books lately? The Teen Advisory Board — a.k.a. TAB — will be meeting TODAY during all grade level lunches in the library. So grab your grub and come take a look at these Totally Awesome Books!!
  • The Model UN Club will be holding a pair of IMPORTANT meetings this week: TODAY, 8th graders will be preparing for WOLFMUN, then on THURSDAY participants be working on TECHMUN — both during ASP 1 in room 202. Please see Mrs. Carlson with any questions.
  • And speaking of the Model UN — The MUNners pizza fundraiser is back! This FRIDAY after school in the main lobby and by the cafeteria — pizza and cookies will be on sale for just 2-dollars! All money raised will go towards Model UN events and conferences. Get it while it’s hot!
