WMS Students and staff, you ALL will be attending a performance of Far Fetched Fairy Tales during the school day TOMORROW. We will be walking to the high school auditorium. Theater expectations: 1) All cell phones should be turned off prior to the start of the show
2) There is no video recording or taking of pictures allowed
3) There is no food or drink allowed in the theater

Pink Shirt Day was started in 2007 by two high school students, David Shepherd and Travis Price, in Nova Scotia. When a fellow classmate wore a pink shirt to school and was bullied for it, the two boys took action and took a stand against the bullies. They distributed pink shirts to their classmates, and all wore them to school the next day in solidarity. International Day of Pink is a day to raise awareness of the harmful impacts of bullying and promote compassion, kindness, and inclusivity. In honor of Pink Shirt Day, please join the student council in wearing pink. Once again we will have the office staff judge during the First hour for the students dressed with the most enthusiasm.

Memory books will be here next month. If you haven't purchased your yet there are still some available. Just bring $20.00 to the office and get one reserved.

Today's the day! We are fortunate to be able to view 90% coverage in the eclipse this afternoon. The eclipse is caused by the moon passing between the sun and the earth, casting a shadow on part of the earth and blocking the sun. It doesn't last very long. I'm watching the weather, and it looks hopeful for clear skies this afternoon. As with any event, be sure you are listening to your teachers, and wear your eclipse glasses when looking at the sun. I'll make an announcement this afternoon when it is time to go outside and see the eclipse!

STOP THE PRESS!! Guess who did it again? The 7th grade Girls Volleyball team visited Lake Mills yesterday and closed this year's volleyball season with a double win, taking down both their A and B teams. The girls kept friends and family in the bleachers on the edge of their seats with suspenseful rallies and cheerful celebrations.
