  • 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.

  • Have you read any “great books” lately?  The WMS Library is OPEN for business!  Students have several options for finding a book.  You can browse the online catalogue through the WMS website. Your TA teacher can schedule a TA time to bring the entire class.  Students can come to the library on their own before TA starts — from 7:30 to 7:40.  And you can also get a LIBRARY PASS from the cafeteria when you’re finished eating lunch.  And starting NEXT WEEK — the library will be open after school from 2:30 to 3.  See our school Librarians — Ms. Tan or Ms. Scott — with any questions.

  • And now — an important announcement for all students in all grades!  The APS “Fall Growth Assessments” continue TODAY and TOMORROW.  Everyone will be taking your MATH test during your regularly scheduled A or B-Day math classes — with the exception of Algebra 1 and Geometry students, who do NOT have to take the test.
    .
    Please try to get to your math classes as quickly as possible today so that testing can begin.  And don’t forget your iPad!  Good luck, wolves!!
