  • The SOLs keep rolling along today — as the 8th graders take their World Geography Exam.  Due to the test, TA will end early this morning — at 8 a.m. — and then we’ll be following a modified “Team Time” schedule.  The bell will NOT ring between classes today — so be sure to keep your eye on the clock.
    .
    Testing locations are listed on the call-boards by the library and cafeteria, or you can also 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, you are reminded to be quiet and respectful in the halls. Teachers will be monitoring the hallways to ensure that there are no disruptions. Good luck on the SOL, 8th graders!

  • The WMS “Wolfbots” will be holding tryouts for next year’s Robotics team — on MONDAY, June 5th during ASP 1 in room 129.  The tryouts are REQUIRED for all rising 7th and 8th graders who wish to participate — both newbies and returning members alike.  See Mr. Dudek with any questions.  Good luck, Robo-wolves!!

  • Want to guess how many overdue library books are still checked out?  100?  200?  Not even close!  There are currently 695 overdue books at WMS — and the librarians are coming for YOU!  Whether you’ve had a book for one week or 5-months, ALL books are due this FRIDAY, June 2nd — and may be returned to the carts located by the library or cafeteria.  Students who still need their books to read during the SOLs may keep them until after the testing period — but not a day longer.  See your school librarian with any questions — and BRING IN YOUR BOOKS!!
