• Ready of not, Williamsburg, but it’s time to take the SOLs!  The Virginia Standards of Learning begin TODAY with the 8th grade Reading Exam.  Testing locations are listed on the call-boards by the library and cafeteria, or you can check with your TA teacher.
    Test-takers are reminded that 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; any electronic devices; 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!
  • Need something good to read?  The library may be closed during the SOLs, but students can still get books by clicking on the “Book Checkout Request” tab in the “Library” section of the WMS website.  The book will then be delivered to your TA as soon as it’s available.  Also, please be sure to return your books to the library carts located in the front lobby and by the cafeteria.  Reading rocks!
  • Calling all MUNners! The Model UN Club will be meeting this THURSDAY during ASP 1 in room 202. See Mrs. Carlson with any questions.
  • Hey, 7th grade!  It’s never too soon to start thinking about high school!  If you might be interested in attending the Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, then come to the informational session next MONDAY in the auditorium.  Just sign-up in the main office, or see Mr. Tuttle with any questions.
