  • The “Wolf Pack” is gearing up for a big year in sports!  Tryouts for the defending County Champion Girls soccer team wrap-up this week.  8th grade girls should report to the field this THURSDAY after school — for your chance to join the squad.  Go for the goal, soccer wolves!
    .
  • Serve, Volley, Overhead SLAM!!  7th and 8th graders did a great job at tennis tryouts yesterday — but there’s still more to come.  The 6th grade tennis tryouts are scheduled for this THURSDAY — for both boys and girls.  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.  And don’t forget your racket!
    .
  • Aspiring athletes for either 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, or 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.  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. Put your engineering and computing skills to the test — and come build a better robot!

  • Listen up, 8th graders!  The year may have just started, but it’s never too soon to start thinking about HIGH SCHOOL! Next week, representatives from Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology — one of the top high schools in the COUNTRY — will be hosting an informational session for all 8th graders about their incredible academic programs and extra-curricular activities. You’ll also learn about the application and admissions process. The meeting will take place on MONDAY during WOLF TIME in the auditorium, and students will be attending with their TAs. See Mr. Tuttle with any questions.
