  • Attention WMS!  The Virginia Standards of Learning are set to begin TOMORROW — and will continue until June 9th. The SOLs will involve every student and staff member in school — so it’s important that everyone knows what to expect.
    .
    To learn your testing days and location, either check with your TA teacher or the posting boards located by the cafeteria and library. And on your testing days — you may ONLY bring the following items: 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; electronic devises such as phones, tablets, watches, game consoles and the like; nor any water or snacks. And of course, there is zero tolerance for CHEATING. And even on days when you’re NOT testing, please remember to be quiet and respectful in the halls.
    .
    Any other questions or concerns? Check with your teachers or grade level counselors. Good luck on your tests!

  • This is a reminder that the WMS Library will be CLOSED to students — both during and after school — until the end of the SOL testing window in June.  However, library services will continue.  Carts for returning books are located by the library and cafeteria.  Also, if you’d like to check out a new book, students can request specific titles by clicking on the “Book Checkout Request” tab in the “Library” section of the WMS website.  Those books will then be delivered to your TA as soon as they’re available.
