  • It’s National School Librarian Day — and we’ve actually got an important message from our school librarians!  Right now, there are approximately 700 overdue library books at WMS. Let me say that again — SEVEN HUNDRED overdue books.  TA teachers will be distributing overdue notices to students this morning. But don’t just “throw them away” — because next week, the library will also be emailing overdue notices to your PARENTS!  If you have TWO or more overdue books, you will NOT be allowed to check out anything else from the library until they’re returned. So check your backpack, your locker, your classrooms, and under your bed at home, and BRING IN YOUR BOOKS!!!

  • Believe it or not, but the 3rd Quarter is rapidly coming to a close! And you know what that means: it’s almost time for the Wolf Paw Drawing!!! That’s right — the 3rd Quarter Wolf Paw Drawing is scheduled for FRIDAY during TA. But you MUST submit your Wolf Paws no later than lunchtime TODAY to be eligible. And if you’d like a sneak-peak at the prizes, go check-out the display case by the library. There’s some great stuff in there. So stop dawdling and turn in your Paws!

  • Today is your LAST CHANCE to participate in the TA Door Decorating Contest — recognizing your TA teacher’s alma mater.  The Student Services Staff will be touring the school TOMORROW to select the best college booster from each grade — and will award Wolf Paws to the entire TA!  So get decorating, wolves, and let’s get PUMPED about COLLEGE!!
