WBMS Friday Notes
Reflections from Ms. Perkins
WBMS Parents and Guardians –
I am thankful for ALL you do to support WBMS! When we need volunteers – no matter the job, you appear with smiles on your faces. When we ask for food (for labs or to celebrate), you send in loaded bags. When we aspire to expand our classroom libraries, you buy high interest books. When we want to decorate for Desktop Stores, Red Ribbon Week, or the 8th grade dance, you climb the walls hanging streamers from the ceilings. And when we want to help others in our community who need our support, you rally and send in cans, toys, gift cards, coats, and even socks. Oh! I could go on and on. I am truly blessed to be part of such an amazing community! Whatever you do over this break, love on your family and enjoy your time together. Happy Thanksgiving, Jaguars!

To date more than 400,000 daffodils have been planted.
