  • Today we will be following the A-Day schedule.  That means you’ll be attending periods 1, 3, 5, and 7 — so be sure to double-check that you’ve got the correct books and binders for class.  Again, this is an A-Day.  See your TA teacher with any questions.
    .
  • Brush your hair, wash your face, and smile for the camera!  PICTURE DAY is almost here — TOMORROW for all students with PE on B-Days or 5th period; and MONDAY for all students with PE on A-Days. Picture packages can be ordered ONLINE through the WMS website, or you may use the paper order forms you got in TA. See Ms. Wielechowski in the main office with any questions. Say cheese!!
    .
  • What are YOU doing after school this year? Williamsburg Middle School offers DOZENS of after-school activities for students — ranging from sports to clubs to academic classes. Whatever you’re into, you’re gonna find it here! So stop by the WMS Activities Fair — scheduled for next MONDAY, September 16th for 6th graders; and TUESDAY, September 17th for 7th and 8th graders — both starting at 2:30 in the cafeteria.  Meet with coaches, club sponsors, teachers, and participating students — and find the activity for you! Late buses will be provided for students with a valid pass.
    .
  • Calling all bi-lingual 7th and 8th graders! If you know how to read and write in any language other than English, you should take the “Credit by Exam.” It’s an easy way to earn up to FOUR high school credits.  See your grade-level counselor for more information — and be sure to register by October 4th.
    .
  • Tryouts for both GIRLS SOCCER and co-ed TENNIS wrap up TODAY after school.  Soccer players in the 8th grade should meet Coach Girard at 2:45 by the main entrance to the soccer fields.  And ALL tennis players should meet Coach Seeger at the bus loop right after school for instructions on getting to the Yorktown tennis courts.  Be sure to bring all of your equipment and gear — and get ready to PLAY!
    .
  • And a reminder for EVERYONE trying out — You MUST have a current physical on file to participate in after-school athletics. This is NON-NEGOTIABLE. For more information about getting a physical, see your coach, the school nurse, or the Activities coordinator — Ms. Hogwood.

  • And now for a “technology tip” from Ms. Solomon! The 6th graders got their iPads yesterday — CONGRATULATIONS — but not all of them are working quite right.  If anyone in ANY grade is having a problem with your school-issued iPad — whether it’s password problems, not connecting to the internet, glitching apps, cracked screens, broken case, or ANYTHING else — please submit an online “Student Tech. Help Request” form through the WMS website. Ms. Solomon’s got the solution! So submit today — and get yourself back online.
