  • The SOLs roll-on here at WMS —  with 8th graders on the Hokie and Patriot teams taking the Math exam. Here’s a look at the testing schedule for May 30th….

    We will be following “Team Time Bell Schedule B.”  While the Hokies and Patriots are testing from 8 to 10:48 a.m. — the rest of the 8th grade and all of the 7th grade will go to Team Time, while the 6th grade will follow the adjusted ‘B’ schedule beginning at 8:15. Testing locations are listed on the call-board by the auditorium, or you can check with your TA teacher.
    .
    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. And 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 in the halls. 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, 8th graders!

  • Did you get a good breakfast today? On EVERY scheduled SOL testing day, the WMS cafeteria will be offering a FREE BREAKFAST to all students, from 7:25 to 7:50 a.m. It’s a FACT that a healthy breakfast fuels both your body AND your mind.  So give yourself the best chance for success, and EAT YOUR BREAKFAST!!
    .
  • 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!
    .
  • And now it’s time for WOLF PACK PRIDE!  WMS Spirit Wear t-shirts will be on-sale TODAY and TOMORROW after school at the new School Store.  They’re just 10-dollars each — and are the perfect “fit” for either next month’s Field Day event or the 8th grade field trip.  And there are still a few grade-level t-shirts available, too — for 18-dollars.  So come get your gear at the school store today — and be a Part of the Pride!!

  • 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.
