  • We will be following “Team Time Bell Schedule B.”  While the Cavaliers and Rams 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, and 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!  There are a lot of AMAZING students here at WMS. And you deserve to be recognized!

  • Calling all student-athletes!  If you played a school sport this year — you MUST return your team uniform AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.  Please bring them to Ms. Hogwood’s office, located across from the auditorium.  Again, all team uniforms must be returned before the end-of-the-year.
