- September is “Suicide Prevention Month” — and WMS is committed to “shining a light” on this sensitive and heartbreaking topic. A representative from Arlington County will be visiting our school TODAY — during all grade level lunches — with information about how to support others who are struggling with this serious issue. Be sure to check it out. And in the meantime, if you or someone you care about are in crisis, our school counselors are here to help. “Just one conversation can save a life!”

Meet with coaches, club sponsors, teachers, and participating students — and find the activity for you!
