Administrative Assistants Appreciation Day
Last Wednesday was Administrative Assistants Appreciation Day. This day recognizes the professionals who keep an office running smoothly through their organization skills, flexibility, and adaptability. At WMS, we greatly appreciate all the work from Mrs. Mutters, Mrs. Hicks, Mrs. Steagall, and Mrs. Wohlers. Thank you for everything you do for our students and staff!
International Firefighters Day!
Wednesday is International Firefighters Day. This is a day to show remembrance to the fallen firefighters who died serving their community, and the past firemen and women who risked everything for the good of the people. This day is represented by the red and blue ribbon. The red represents fire while the blue represents water. You can celebrate International Firefighters Day by showing you care by sending a letter to your local fire department, or by having your headlights on at all times to represent the fallen firefighters.
