Upcoming Events for PTSA

Monday, January 13, join us for coffee and a PTSA meeting in Room 11
at 7:45am. You do not have to be a member of PTSA to participate in
the meeting.

Monday, January 13, grab a bite to eat at Fazoli's on Green River from
11 AM-8:00PM and mention WMS PTSA! Doing so will allow us to earn a
percentage of pre-tax purchases to be used to sponsor various events.

We are about $115 short of our Box Tops Goal for the year. Please
send in any box tops with your student and ask that they be given to
their homeroom teacher, the office, or Mrs. Miller or Mrs. Rodgers.
