  • There’s a LOT to do today — so let’s start with the basics. First off, we will be running on a NORMAL schedule today. The TA/ WOLF TIME period ends at 8:30 a.m., and then you’ve got FOUR minutes to get to your first period class. Teachers will be posted throughout the halls to help you find your way.
    .
  • Students will also be receiving their locker assignments and combinations this morning. Be sure to let your teacher know if your locker is jammed, and PLEASE do NOT share your combination with other students.
    .
  • And now for some important announcements about WMS athletics! ULTIMATE FRISBEE is getting ready to go. The GIRLS Ultimate season will be first to play this year. Interested female athletes are invited to the first practice next MONDAY, September 10th in the WMS gym. All ability levels are welcome, whether you’re a first-timer or a National Champion! See Mr. Smolinski with any questions. Let’s play!
    .
  • GOOOOOAAAALLLLLLL! The Soccer World Cup was one for the ages this summer — with France winning the championship in Russia. And now — it’s time to play in Arlington. The WMS boys soccer team is recruiting new players for the new season. Interested boys should sign-up on the Activities Board by the cafeteria. The tryout schedule begins next MONDAY for 6th graders; TUESDAY for 7th; and THURSDAY for 8th — all on the turf fields from 2:30 to 4. Come dressed and ready to play! See Mr. Witte with any questions.
    .
  • Serve, volley, overhead SMASH! The WMS Tennis Team is also getting into the “swing.” Tryouts for boys AND girls begin next week — 8th graders on MONDAY; 7th graders on TUESDAY; and 6th graders on THURSDAY. Interested athletes should meet at the bus loop each day after school, where the team bus will transport you to the Yorktown tennis courts. Be sure to bring your racket — and a can of balls if you have one. See Mr. Seeger with any questions.
    .
  • And a reminder for all athletes — and all sports. 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.

Until next time: Show your WOLF PACK PRIDE and let’s have a great year, Williamsburg!!
