- First up: The 6th grade “new student group” is meeting RIGHT NOW in room 228, and will run throughout TA and WOLF TIME. Again, if you were invited to the 6th grade “new student group” by your counselor, please go IMMEDIATELY to room 228.
- Brush your hair, wash your face, and smile for the camera, everybody — because TODAY is PICTURE DAY at WMS!! Student photographs will be taken during all PE classes, so be sure to bring your “picture order form” with you. Extras forms are located in the office, or you can download a form from the WMS website. See Ms. Argenal 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’ll find it at the WMS Activities Fair — scheduled for next MONDAY at 2:50 in the cafeteria. Meet with coaches, club sponsors, teachers, and participating students — and find the right activities for you! Late buses WILL be available for the ride home. See Ms. Hogwood for more information.
- And now for sports! Virtually EVERY DAY of tryouts has been rained out this week… so everything is being pushed back to NEXT week. The WMS co-ed Tennis Team will now hold tryouts for 7th and 8th graders on MONDAY, and then 6th graders on TUESDAY. The plan is to meet at the bus loop after school and walk over to the Yorktown tennis courts. Bring your racket and a can of balls if you have them — and cross your fingers for better weather. See Mr. Seeger with any questions.
- The WMS boys soccer team is also hoping to “kick-it” into gear. Tryouts for 8th graders will be held on MONDAY after school on the turn field — along with all 6th and 7th graders who made the first cut. Be sure to wear your cleats and shin guards. See Mr. Witte with any questions.
- 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. The test is scheduled for November 6th at Wakefield High School — but registration is open NOW. See your grade-level counselor or a HILT teacher for more information, or to sign-up.
