  • We begin today with WOLF PACK PRIDE!  Congratulations to WMS Bands and WMS Visual Arts for a MASTERFUL performance last night at the 2018 Spring Concert.  The collaborative show featured a “melding” of music with artistic displays — resulting in a creative, innovative, and visually STUNNING performance.  Way to go, musical and artistic wolves!! [clap]
    .
  • And now, as we continue with the “Stress Less, Laugh More” campaign — the WMS administration and Student Services Staff would like to reassure you that “mental health” is our top priority here at Williamsburg.  So it’s up to us — to everyone here in our shared community — to look out for our friends, and give them the support they need.
  • Who wants pizza? The WMS Model UN Club will be hosting a pizza fundraiser on FRIDAY after school in the Main Lobby and by the Cafeteria. Get a slice of pizza and a cookie for just 2-dollars — and all money raised will go to support upcoming MUNner conferences and activities. Come Hungry!!!

  • Calling all CAST and CREW of the Spring Musical!  Your performance last week was a HUGE success — and now, you get to see it for yourself!  All CAST and CREW are cordially invited to a VIEWING PARTY of Beauty and the Beast, Junior — next MONDAY after school in the auditorium.  The hard work is over — so now just sit back and “Be Our Guest!”  See Mr. Brown 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.

  • Attention all students!! Next week marks the beginning of SOL season here at WMS — and we need to start getting ready. Students will be taking the SOLs on their iPads this year. But in order for it to work, your iPad must be updated, undamaged, and FULLY CHARGED each day. Starting NOW — please make sure you’re plugging-in your iPad every night, and let your TA teacher know IMMEDIATELY if your iPad is cracked or malfunctioning.

    Also, it’s very important that EVERY STUDENT runs a “TestNav System Check” this week, to make sure the testing software is installed and functioning prior to the test.  For a quick tutorial on how to run the Systems Check, just go to the “Technology” section of the WMS Website, click “iPad Tech Tutorials”, then select “TestNav SOL System Check for Students.”  You can also follow the link located in today’s Morning Announcements Blog.  See Ms. Cameron or Ms. Solomon with any additional technology issues or questions about the upcoming SOLs.  And GOOD LUCK next week, Williamsburg!!
