WMS Announcements for Friday, March 29, 2019
LUNCH: Cheese pizza w/corn, fruit, and milk or NO Salad Bar
For those of you who are not aware, WMS is running a fundraiser for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society called Pennies for Patients. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is the world's largest nonprofit fighting blood cancer. This topic is very important to us here at WMS as we have multiple staff members who have fought these cancers and won! We hope the funds raised can help others who are currently battling cancer. Today was our first collection day and our students/staff brought in $306.97! The top homerooms in order after the first collection date: 1st place- Mrs. Vander Veur $80.07 2nd place- Mrs. Hellman $42.45 & 3rd place - Mr. Miller $40.80. I am very proud of everyone for rallying behind this cause! The fundraiser will have 2 more collection dates on 4/2 & the final one will be on 4/5/19. Keep up the great work!
The Lower yellowstone ABATE Chapter is sponsoring a Motorcycle Awareness Poster Contest. All entries should promote a message of awareness for motorcycle riders by other motorists. A cash-prize of $25.00 will be awarded to a winner from each school. Then two winners will be chosen from all of the school entries and those winners will receive $100.00 and their poster will be published on a billboard. Please see Mrs. Nissley if you are interested and to pick up an entry form. Posters are due by April 12.
Check out the Readbox Book Review Boxes in the stairwells between 1st & 2nd floors. For a special, limited time, students will be able to use their phones during passing periods to scan the QR codes and read the book reviews that 7th graders wrote! You may find a book you HAVE to read! No fees to rent them, just head to the library and check the books out!" The readbox displays are here for a limited time, so check them out today.
We have WMS Demon T-shirts for sale! The cool thing about these is that you get to put the print on yourself if you’d like! All funds from this fundraiser go directly back into the WMS fundraiser account that funds our BLITZ days and other fun things we do. Stop by the office and pick up an order form and see what they look like! Cost of the t-shirts is $15.
The Selfie of the week is posted in the hallway going up the stairs from the main entrance. Congratulations to Mrs. Lynn's students for being selected this week with their "hanging around" pic! Thank you to everyone for submitting their pictures. Just a reminder that selfies must be then submitted to Mr. Goyette by email for consideration as the Selfie of the week. Please make sure you have teacher/staff member permission to have your phone out before you take any of the selfies. We want to see all of the cool things going on at WMS!
- This is a reminder to students and staff to remember to nominate others for the TIP Kindness Award. Anytime you observe a student or staff member doing a kind deed for another, you may write up an award for them. These are delivered at the end of the month by our TIP members. You may pick them up from the main office or from Mrs. Nissley.
