  • We begin today with WOLF PACK PRIDE! The WMS boys Ultimate team played a series of hard-fought matches against HB yesterday.  The 8th graders battled back-and-forth all afternoon, earning a 9 to 9 tie.  The 7th graders pulled out a 7 to 5 WIN!  While the 6th graders fell just short, but still played great against older competition.  Way to go, frisbee wolves!! [clap]

  • Wolf Pack Pride continues with a pair of upcoming games.  The girls soccer team takes on Kenmore Middle School at home today, starting at 3:15 on the back fields.  Come on out and root them on to victory!
    .
  • Meanwhile, the WMS Tennis Team “swings” into action this afternoon, also playing Kenmore in its first match of the year.  The games will be played at the Yorktown tennis courts starting at  3:15.  Go for the winner, wolves!

  • Attention all students!  Here’s an important technology tip from Ms. Solomon: Do NOT upgrade your iPads at home to iOS 11. If you do, your tablet will NOT WORK — and will need to be repaired.  Again DON’T UPGRADE your operating system… OR ESLE!!!! Also, the Google Classroom app has been REMOVED from all iPads by APS.  So during WOLF TIME this morning, everyone must create a new shortcut to Google Classroom.  Teachers, please go to iPad tutorials on the WMS website for specific instructions.  Again, EVERYONE needs to create a new shortcut to Google Classroom on their iPads.
