October 17th Announcements

October 17, 2019

  • Please plan on joining us for our upcoming Fall Connection on October 19th from 1 to 3 p.m. We will have a free meal, games, activities, raffle baskets, bounce houses, free haircuts and much more.  Concessions will be available for purchase. 

  • 8th grade students will be randomly selected daily to participate in the roundtable with the LHS Service Learners. If you are selected, please get your lunch and report to room 120 for the roundtable. You will learn about High School expectations and what’s needed to be successful. 

  • Warriors, your attendance matters. We will be having a grade level attendance competition for October starting October 14th through October 31. The grade level that has the highest percentage of students in attendance above 93 % will earn a treat during lunch time. Please make sure you are present and encourage your friends to be in attendance too. 

  • Tuesday we started counting your tardies for the next PBIS reward.  In order to attend the Spooky Movie Film Fest on November 8th, you cannot have more than 3 tardies from now until then.  We have more than a dozen movies for you to pick from so be sure to get to class on time so you can attend.

  • 7th grade Homework Help is today after school. Talk to your teacher to see what missing work you can make up. Bring your work AND a book to read and be in room 208 by 2:40. If you do not have an SSR book with you, you will not be allowed to stay. Please make sure you know how you will get home.

  • We will have a spirit night on October 28 from 4:30 to 7:30 at Chick-fil-A. A portion of proceeds will be donated back to WMS. Everyone who supports will receive a prize.

  • The Girls Basketball Game scheduled for tonight at Ball Charter will start at 4:30 instead of 3:30. There will be a team meeting and pre-game warm up at WMS after school in the gym. The bus will leave for Ball Charter 3:30. Please inform your parents you may come to the office to call during lunch if needed.

  • 7th and 8th Grade Boys Basketball tryouts will be on 10/21 from 6:30-8:30 in the WMS Gym. Please come dressed for activity and make arrangements for your own transportation.

  • This week’s social goal: I can prepare to end the quarter strong. I know where my grades are and how to correct any failing classes.
