Good Morning! Today is Tuesday, January 14, 2020. It is a Blue Day
Hi all. If your child received air pods or other wireless headphones for Christmas (and it seems like that was a popular item under the tree this year!) we'd like to suggest you think about having them stay at home. In support of our efforts to keep kids off their phones during classes, we have asked that kids not use them during the day and we have a LOT of kids who have lost them at school. They are small and portable and kids are leaving the cases, misplacing one or more pod or they are simply dropping out of their ears, all of which causes the kids to get stressed over the loss. Thank you for your understanding as we continue to work to having a focused learning environment here at WMS!
