  • 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. We also have WOLF TIME today — which will take place in your TA classroom. Again, this is an A-Day. See your TA teacher with any questions.

  • What are YOU doing after school this year? Williamsburg offers DOZENS of after-school activities for students — ranging from sports to clubs to academic classes. And you can learn all about them at the annual WMS Activity Fair!
    .
    We’ve split the event into TWO separate days:  Today is for 6th graders, and tomorrow is for 7th and 8th graders — both starting at 3 p.m. in the cafeteria.  Students are invited to stop by, meet with coaches and sponsors, and find the best activity for YOU.  See Ms. Hogwood with any questions — and we’ll see you at the Activity Fair!!

  • Put your creative genius to the test! The annual PTA Reflections Contest is now accepting submissions from all grade-level students. This year’s theme is: “I will change the world by…” Projects can include Dance Choreography, Film Production, Literature, Music Composition, Photography, or Visual Arts.
    .
    Submission forms can be found in the WMS Library, and projects must be received by October 26th. Unleash your inner artist and submit to the PTA Reflections Contest today!!

  • And finally — Today begins our school-wide celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, which recognizes the histories, cultures and contributions of Americans whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.
    .
    Over the next few week, WMS will be presenting a series of events and programs about Hispanic heritage — which we hope you’ll find both informative AND entertaining.  And to start things off, stay tuned for this Hispanic Heritage Month video — celebrating the diversity that exists all around us — everyday — here in our shared community, and country.
