  • Pound, pound, POUND!!  What’s that?  It’s the sound of an 8th grader trying to get into the trailers and BANGING on the door, like, 18 times!!  Listen up, Wolves — if you’re locked out of the trailers, a simple knock will do the trick.  Please be patient, and someone will open the door in a few moments.  Your 8th grade teachers thank you for your patience and understanding — and for NOT POUNDING ON THE DOOR!!
  • Move over Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump — because WMS has its own election coming up! 8th graders are invited to run for the 2016-2017 SCA. There will be an informational meeting for potential candidates TODAY during ASP 1 in room 205. Come learn about the campaign process and the responsibilities of the various offices. See Mr. Peacock with any questions.
  • If you know how to read and write in any language other than English, you should take the Credit by Exam. If you pass this exam, you can earn up to 4 High School credits. Ask Ms. Soto in room 132 for an application. Don’t wait — and get school credit for language skills that you already possess!
