TOMORROW is iPad roll-out day!  All 6th graders will be receiving their WMS iPads on TUESDAY in the library.  Just remember that these devices are NOT toys. You’ll be needing them for all of your academic classes this year — and it’s YOUR responsibility to keep them charged and in working order.  Rules and Guidelines are now posted on the WMS website.  And you’ll get plenty of additional information throughout the day.  Enjoy your iPads!

The “Wolf Pack” is gearing up for Fall sports!  Tryouts for the defending County Champion Girls soccer team are all this week.  The 6th graders get it started after school TODAY; then 7th graders on TUESDAY; and 8th graders on THURSDAY. Go for the goal, soccer wolves!

Boys Ultimate Frisbee also gets going TODAY, after school in the gym.  Boys from all grade levels are invited to join — no experience necessary — just come ready to play!

And finally– the U.S. Open just wrapped up, but the WMS Tennis season is just getting started!  Tryouts begin on TUESDAY for 7th and 8th graders, then continue on THURSDAY for 6th graders.  You’ll be playing at the Yorktown tennis courts, so meet at the bus loop after school for the ride over.  Stay tuned for rain dates, if necessary.  Don’t forget your racket!

Interested athletes for any of these sports should sign up on the activity board by the cafeteria, or see the team coach with any questions — Mr. Girard for girls soccer, Mr. Smolinski for Ultimate Frisbee, and Mr. Seeger for tennis.

And be sure to turn-in your completed physicals to Ms. Hogwood in order to participate.

Hey, 6th graders!  Have we got a high-tech opportunity for you?!  The WOLFBOTS LEGO ROBOTICS TEAM is now recruiting 6th graders for the new season. Put your engineering and computing skills to the test!  LEGO robotics experience is PREFERRED, but not necessary. Just see Mr. Dudek — or as the WOLFBOTS call him: Coach Dude — in room 129 for more information.

Lastly, there will be a special program about “9/11” presented to all students during WOLF TIME today. We ask that everyone treat the discussion with the respect that it deserves. It’s important that we never forget the past.

In the spirit of community, there will be an additional “Moment of Silence” at 9:36 this morning — to commemorate the victims of 9/11. Principal Boykin will make a PA announcement at that time.
