Apps Stirring Up Trouble in Schools

This is a great article from Common Sense Media that talks about what apps are causing trouble in schools. From hidden apps to apps that create group video chats with strangers, we all need to be on top of this! And honestly, it scares the heck out of me!

WMS Halloween Guidelines

This year at WMS we are going to allow costumes on Halloween (Tuesday, October 31). Here are my guidelines:


  • All costuming must happen at home. That includes any hair of make-up.
  • The costume must be school appropriate.
  • There are no masks allowed.
  • There can be nothing that you carry around that is extra. (ie. weapons, scythes, clubs, dolls, etc.)
  • Teachers are expected to teach that day, though they may have Halloween themed lessons.
  • There will be no Halloween parties. Or candy. Or other treats. Because you will get enough junk at night if you trick or treat.
  • After Halloween, you can only bring a couple of pieces of candy per day. If you bring more, I will get it and eat it. Especially the Take 5's!
