  • Let the games BEGIN!  TODAY is FIELD DAY at WMS for all 6th and 7th graders. Your teachers and PTA have prepared a load of fun-and-games for your enjoyment — including a live DJ, raffles with great prizes, a dunk tank, a shaved ice truck, and plenty of food and drink.
    .
    Due to the weather forecast, field day will now take place INSIDE the building in the cafeteria — but it WILL go on as planned. 7th graders in the morning, and 6th graders in the afternoon. Field Day at WMS — Let’s get this party started!!
    .
  • Did you get your yearbook last week?  The 2018-2019 yearbooks were distributed on Friday.  If you were absent or unable to get yours — please bring your “claim ticket” to the MAIN OFFICE today to pick-up your copy.  Again, you MUST have your claim ticket to get your yearbook.  See Ms. Kontos with any questions.
    .
  • The WOLFPACK LUNCH for 7th graders has been RESCHEDULED for TOMORROW, June 18th in the Library Conference room.  Participating 7th graders are asked to go directly to the Library — get your FREE PIZZA — and join your WMS administrators for a relaxing lunch.  Again, the 7th grade WOLFPACK LUNCH is now being held TOMORROW.  See Ms. Wielechowski in the main office with any questions.
    .
  • And now for an important message from our school librarians. All overdue library books MUST be returned AS SOON AS POSSIBLE! There are still over 2-HUNDRED overdue books out there — and the library needs them back. So look in your backpack, your locker, and under your bed at home — and BRING IN YOUR BOOKS!
    .
  • We’re also still waiting for DOZENS of team uniforms to be returned.  Please bring them to Ms. Hogwood in the Activities Office as soon as possible. Any student who does NOT return their uniform will be charged for a replacement — so if you don’t want to pay, turn it in TODAY!
    .
  • Did you have a piece in this year’s Scholastic Art Competition? Students whose work was on display are reminded to pick-up their art work before the end of the school year. You may claim your creative masterpieces from the art room before school, during wolf time, or after school. See Mr. Skrzypek with any questions.
    .
  • And now for a “Transportation Tip” about riding the bus. If you’re ever planning to take a bus that’s not your own — like if you’re going to a friend’s house after school — you MUST bring a note from home to the main office NO LATER than your grade level lunch. Again, do NOT wait until the end of the day to get a bus pass — because there isn’t time and you’ll miss the bus! See Ms. Argenal in the office with any questions.
    .
  • Did you know that over 1-BILLION toothbrushes end up in landfills every year? Ms. Willet’s 7th grade science classes are now collecting old toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes, and floss containers — all of which will be recycled to cut down on waste and pollution. Just drop them in the RECYCLING BOX located in the main lobby. Let’s make a difference Williamsburg!
    .
  • And finally today — remember all those SOLs you had to take last month?  It was a MASSIVE undertaking!  And student-reporters Jahnvi S., Meera V., and Freya O. say — many students had mixed emotions about the whole process.  Check it out!
