Morning Announcements for Valentine’s Day, February 14
TODAY IS DAY 4
* 8th Graders: Counselors will be visiting your 8th grade Science classes today to do a presentation on course selection. Please check the signs posted outside of the Science
classrooms that include directions for what room you should attend.
* Tomorrow there is a Faculty meeting beginning at 2:45 pm. There will be no after school activities tomorrow and all students must leave after the bell.
* All school-owned Loaner iPads are to be returned to the Tech Deck by Friday afternoon before break. You can get a loaner again after break. All
school-use iPads need to be returned to the Tech office by Friday afternoon.
* Are you curious about what some people in our WMS community will be celebrating starting today? Today begins the Christian observance of Lent. Lent begins 40 days before
Easter on Ash Wednesday. You may see some students and faculty wearing ashes on their foreheads to celebrate. Lent today is meant to prepare your spirit for Easter by making sacrifices
(usually giving up something you enjoy eating or doing), asking forgiveness, and prayer. People who celebrate Lent often do not eat meat on Fridays during these 40 days. There are students
at WMS who will be observing this holiday. We wish all people at WMS observing this holiday a peaceful Lenten season.
* Today is the 8th annual WMS Chinese Year celebration in the cafeteria from 2:30 – 3:30. Hope you can join the WMS Chinese classes and the Chinese Culture Club to try some food tastings,
watch performances and make arts and crafts. A live lion dance and Kung Fu demonstration will be performed. The 7th grade band will join the celebration with a special “Chinese Folk Fantasy.”
As in past years, we will raise fund for the Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center at the celebration to support its programs.
