  • The SOLs roll-on here at WMS — with make-up testing in the Library for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders.  Testing will take place in the Library following the Morning Announcements — while the rest of the school will be following a NORMAL class schedule.
    .
    A few things to remember about testing…. When you arrive at your testing location, students should WAIT OUTSIDE for the examiner to check you in. Again, do NOT take your seat until the examiner has taken attendance. Test-takers may ONLY bring the following items: your fully-charged iPad, a pencil or pen, a book to read, and earbuds ONLY if you have an approved audio accommodation for the test. You may NOT bring: backpacks or cinch sacks; any other electronic devises such as phones, watches, game consoles and the like; nor any water or snacks. And of course, there is zero tolerance for CHEATING.
    .
    And for all those students who are NOT testing today — please remember to be quiet and respectful when you’re passing by the Library.  Teachers will be monitoring the hallways to ensure that there are no disruptions. Any other questions or concerns? Check with your teachers or grade level counselors. Good luck on your SOL, wolves!
    .
  • The WMS Library will be CLOSED today during SOL testing hours. But it WILL be open after school. So be sure to stop by this afternoon and either get yourself something good to read — or better yet, RETURN YOUR OVERDUE LIBRARY BOOKS!
    .
  • The WMS Kindness Club will be holding ONE MORE meeting this month — next TUESDAY during ASP 1 in room 134.  There’s a LOT of work to be done on the end-of-the-year school project, so EVERYONE is encouraged to attend — both old members and new.  See Mr. Johnson, Ms. Schaefer or Ms. Zeller 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.
    .
  • Up next — sports isn’t just about “fun and games.” In fact, the sporting world is often home to heated debates — and controversy. Stay tuned as students-reporters Christopher P., Ryan C., and Ryan S. tackle the biggest issues in sports with: “FOR CRYAN’ OUT LOUD.”
  • And finally today, it’s time for another Mindful Moment — to help us get centered and focused as we begin our day. So let’s just take a moment… and BREATHE.
