  • And now for a “Transportation Tip” about riding the bus. If you’re ever planning to take a bus that’s not your own — like if you’re going to a friend’s house after school — you MUST bring a note from home to the main office NO LATER than your grade level lunch. Again, do NOT wait until the end of the day to get a bus pass — because there isn’t time and you’ll miss the bus! See Ms. Argenal in the office with any questions.
    .
  • “Every HERO needs a squad!!” The WMS Pennies for Patients fundraiser is in the home stretch — raising money 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!!

Winners will be announced next TUESDAY, and all money raised from the raffle will be added to our Pennies for Patients total.
