  • We begin today with WOLF PACK PRIDE!  HUNDREDS of rising 6th graders visited WMS from local elementary schools yesterday.  You may have seen them roaming the halls, or popping-in to classrooms throughout the day.  Well, the event was a HUGE success — and it was only made possibly by the hard work and contributions of our students and staff.
    .
    A big THANK YOU to the 7th grade tour guides; to the music program, cheerleaders, and drama club for their performances; to the teachers whose classrooms were “invaded”; to Mr. Tuttle and the admin for organizing; and of course — to ALL of our students for making the kids feel welcome in our school.  Way to go, wolves!! [clap]  Now get ready to do the whole thing — AGAIN!  The second round of rising 6th grade orientation is scheduled for next WEDNESDAY.  Good times!
    .
  • Sister Circle will be meeting TODAY during ASP 1 in room 233. Come out for a little Girl Talk — and a lot of fun activities! See Ms. Cameron with any questions.
    .
  • Calling all native-Spanish speakers! If you speak Spanish at home, then you could EASILY earn a special “Seal of Bi-literacy” on your high school diploma. Just sign-up for next year’s “Spanish for Fluent Speakers” class — and you’ll be on your way! Applications MUST be submitted by next Wednesday — so don’t wait. Just scan the QR code with your TA teacher, or see your grade-level counselor for more information. Buena suerte!!

  • “Every HERO needs a squad!!” We’re half-way through the Pennies for Patients fundraiser, and well on our way to raising 3,600-dollars for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society — and its fight against cancer.  Keep the donations coming — because whichever TA collects the most money will get a free pizza and ice cream party!!  See Ms. Kia at the Check-In Program with any questions — and support the Pennies for Patients fundraiser!
    .
  • The Check-In Program will ALSO be hosting a Pizza Sale — this FRIDAY after school by the cafeteria. All money raised will be added to the Pennies for Patients fundraiser and its goal to cure cancer. It’s just 2-dollars a slice — so be sure to come by, grab some pizza pie, and support Pennies for Patients!

  • Did you know that this Sunday is Earth Day? Every year on April 22nd, people all around the world take time to appreciate our planet — Earth — and learn about how to keep the it clean and sustainable.

    This year, the WMS Earth Club is teaming up with Girl Scout troop 6595 to help raise awareness about indoor air quality. Their service project is to put plants in classrooms — a simple but effective way to help reduce air pollution. But they’re going to need YOUR HELP!  Stay tuned for more information next week.  And remember:  Go Green and Breathe Clean!
