  • There are going to be a few new faces in school this morning!  HUNDREDS of rising 6th graders will be visiting Williamsburg from surrounding elementary schools today. They’ll be receiving an orientation about WMS, guided tours of the building and classrooms, performances from our musical groups and cheer squad, and of course — LUNCH in the cafeteria. If you see these kids in the hall, let’s be sure to give them a smile, make them feel welcome, and BE A PART OF THE PRIDE!!

  • And in preparation for today’s orientation, 7th grade Tour Guides from the Mystics and Wizards teams are reminded to meet at 9:45 this morning — so you’re in position and ready for the rising 6th graders’ arrival.  Again, tour guides should report at 9:45.  See Mr. Tuttle with any questions.
