Good morning Willowcreek. Today is Friday, the 9th of October 2020. This is Mrs. Stewart and I hope everyone is planning a great day today.

Let’s start these announcements as we do with the Pledge and a moment of silence. Please stand. Pledge. Thank you. You may be seated. Our Mission is educating, empowering and inspiring excellence. And now for your daily announcements:

Because we are preparing schedules for the next 9 weeks, you will probably be seeing some funky things going on with your schedule and with Schoology. Please ignore any “extra” classes in different mods that you are showing up for - just continue using the mods that you have since the beginning of the year. All the extra stuff will go away on October 20.

Next week is a three day week for students. Thursday is a teacher records day and Friday is Fall Break. Fall break continues through Monday October 19. All students will return either in person or virtually on Tuesday, Oct 20.

Any 7th or 8th grade boy interested in trying out for basketball MUST sign up on the google form posted on Schoology. This needs to be completed right away in order to have the opportunity to try out.

Do you have school spirit? Do you like to spread positivity? Do you like to jump and tumble? Do you like to cheer on your WMS basketball teams?
If yes, tryout for the WMS Cheerleading Team! Open Gym will be after school until 4:15pm Monday October 26th and Tuesday October 27th. Wednesday October 28th will be the tryout day until 4:15pm. Sign up using the Google form in the Schoology updates. Email Coach Jones with any questions or concerns.

Speaking of spirit, next week is Homecoming Spirit Week! Join your friends virtually by participating in three days of fun. Monday is Super Hero Day; Tuesday is Wacky Tacky Day and Wednesday is Portage Pride Day. Dress up, take pics and share with your teachers. Remember that all dressing up MUST be school appropriate.

Next week is the final week of school of the 1st 9 weeks’ grading period. You need to be checking PowerSchool and Schoology for any missing assignments. Then, check with your teacher to see if you can still get credit for turning them in. The last day for turning in accepted late assignments is Monday, Oct 12.


And now for some words of Wisdom…
