  • We begin today with WOLF PACK PRIDE!  Last night was Back to School Night at WMS — and it was a HUGE success.
    .
    More than a THOUSAND parents visited the school, all of whom were treated to incredible presentations by your classroom teachers.
    .
    Special thanks goes out to all of those teachers who worked so hard on making your parents feel welcome; to our student volunteers — the tour guides, Yearbook staff, and WOLF-TV reporters — for their important contributions; to our admin, counselors, office staff, and librarians for their support; and of course, to our custodial staff for making our school shine.
    .
    Great job, everyone, and GO WOLVES!! [clap]
