A Good Article

Just recently NEA Today, our Educator Newsletter, published an article entitled "Social Media's

Impact on Students’ Mental Health Comes Into Focus" Kira Barrett. It is an interesting perspective on the relationship of social media use to the deterioration of real-life communication. Check out the article HERE.

5 Morning Volunteers

Can you help us out once a week from 7:45 am - 8:30 am? We are looking for 5 volunteers (one for each day of the week) to help us with our student Temporary ID's. There is a heavy need for volunteers to issue temporary ID's first thing in the morning when our Main Office and LRC staff are already at peak business. An extra set of hands would be helpful in getting this task accomplished. Please contact Meghan Cannon in the LRC if this is something you would be able to help us out with on a regular basis. We would so appreciate your help!

Please Talk to Your Students about using the Crosswalks

We have had several bus drivers report of students crossing both Kirk and Dunham in the middle of the roadway and not using the designated crosswalks. These roads are very dangerous with vehicles moving at high rates of speed, some relatively inexperienced drivers entering and exiting the high school and inattentive walkers. This is a recipe for disaster. Please remind them to use the crosswalks and traffic signals when crossing these streets. The safety and well-being of our students is our first priority.

WMS Jazz Ensemble Plays at Pheasant Run

Last Sunday the WMS Jazz Ensemble played a great concert at the Pheasant Run Resort. Our RedHawk musicians made a great showing in their performance, especially after only one month of practice! The professional Big Band who was performing graciously welcomed our group on the stage and the audience was appreciative of the efforts put forth. Check out the photos, and even a video, below!

Just a Couple of Quick Reminders

1) NO outside drinks (Starbucks, Dunkin) will be allowed in the AM
2) Parents can only drop off lunch for their own child - not a group
3) We DO NOT accept or sign for delivered lunches for students - do not order for delivery.

The seniors have visited Wredling for a "Relay for Life" relay races and the "Into the Woods Jr." musical. We look forward to spending time in November for Veterans Day and December to watch Elf and make crafts. We also plan on starting to "pen paling" with the seniors. Our 7th-graders are making us proud with their interactions with our senior community.
