  • And now as part of Spirit Week, we’d like to welcome a pair of special guests to the WOLF-TV Studio.  Say “hello” to Ms. Zeller and Ms. Flynn!
    .
  • FLYNN:  Good morning, Wolves!  I’m Ms. Flynn.
    .
    ZELLER:  And I’m Ms. Zeller, and we’re here representing the Student Services Staff.  April is Stress Awareness Month, and May is Mental Health Awareness Month. So this week, we are combining the two for a special activity here at WMS.
    .
    FLYNN:  Starting today, we will be promoting a positive and healthy lifestyle with the “Stress Less, Laugh More” campaign.
    .
    ZELLER:  This time of year can be difficult for everyone. With SOLs, final exams, and the impending “end of the year” looming before us, it’s natural for emotions to run high — and for anxiety to loom large.
    .
    FLYNN:  But there are many strategies that YOU can use to help reduce your own stress.  We’ll be sharing some of these techniques with you every morning this week, in a new initiative that we call:  The Mindful Moment.
    .
    ZELLER:  Mindfulness means being aware of yourself, of your feelings and emotions — and accepting them.
    .
    FLYNN:  Throughout the Stress Less, Laugh More campaign, we encourage EVERYONE in our community to ACCEPT the way you feel, to look within yourself for STRENGTH….
    .
    ZELLER:  And above all, remember that it’s all going to be okay.  As stressful as it may seem now, I promise that one day soon you’ll be able to look back and LAUGH.
    .
    FLYNN:  So join us back here tomorrow on WOLF-TV for our next Mindful Moment, when Wolf Pack Pride will be “going to the dogs!”
    .
    ZELLER:  Have a stress free week, Williamsburg!!
    .
  • Thanks for that Mindful Moment, Ms. Zeller and Ms. Flynn.  I feel less stress already!  And now, back to the news.  I don’t want to alarm anyone, but there have been some “stranger things” going on in the woods around Williamsburg lately.  Let’s take a look!
  • Well, that was different.  Tune back-in tomorrow as we delve deeper into this doorway mystery.
    .
  • Want to make some music? The WMS Symphony Club will be meeting TODAY during ASP 1 and 2 in room C105. This “melodious” group is composed of band, orchestra, and chorus members — and it’s open to EVERYONE with a love of music. So check it out! See Ms. Tuttle with any questions.
    .
  • The WMS Kindness Club will be meeting on TUESDAY during ASP 1 in room 134. There a ton of fun activities lined up for rest of the year — so you won’t want to miss it!  And new member are always welcome.  See Mr. Johnson, Ms. Schaefer or Ms. Zeller with any questions.
    .
  • And now for an important announcement for all TAB Book Club members. If you’d like to participate in next week’s Skype with award winning author Stuart Gibbs, then your permission slips MUST be turned in by this THURSDAY — AT THE LATEST.  Again, without a signed permission slip, you will NOT be included in the Skype with Stuart Gibss.  See Ms. Lord with any questions.
    .
  • 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.
