Good morning, Williamsburg!!  Today is Monday, August 29, 2022!  This is your principal, Mr. Boykin — and on behalf of all of us here at WMS — WELCOME BACK!!!  It’s time to get started!

  • Hello, Wolf Pack!! I’m so excited to be here with you for the first day of school.  I’ve got a few announcements to go over this morning, and then I’ll set you loose.
    .
  • First off, we will be following a modified “Anchor Day” — or “C” Day — schedule.  TA is extended until 8:50am, and then you’ll proceed to all SEVEN of your assigned classes.  And if you’re still learning your way around the school, don’t worry — staff will be posted throughout the halls to help you get where you’re going.
    .
  • Students will also be receiving their locker assignments and combinations this morning. Be sure to let your teacher know if your locker is jammed, and PLEASE do NOT share your combination with other students.
    .
  • At lunchtime today, ALL STUDENTS are asked to please report to the cafeteria.  Do NOT go to a teacher classroom, the courtyard, or anywhere else.  We’ve got some important procedures and policies to go over with you about school lunches.
    .
  • And now for a “technology tip” from Ms. Solomon!  Teachers will be distributing iPads on WEDNESDAY — but we need to start getting ready NOW.  So here’s the question: do you remember the password for your iPad???  If not, you have two options. Either ask a teacher to submit a “Student Tech. Help Request Form” for you, OR visit the technology table by the cafeteria for assistance during lunch.  Once again, you need to know your password before iPads are distributed.
    .
  • Ms. Solomon’s got the solution to getting you back online! A reminder for all athletes — and all sports. You MUST have a current physical on file to participate in after-school athletics. This is NON-NEGOTIABLE. Contact our Activities Coordinator, Ms. Hogwood, for more information about getting a physical.

That’s all for now, but I look forward to seeing you in the halls — and having an amazing year!  Until next time: Harvest Your Great, Williamsburg!!
