Principal’s Letter 

Greetings From Wolcott High School:

It has been a very busy month as the season of celebration is upon us!

In the last couple of weeks we have recognized seniors Jackson Yost and Kayla Mayo at the CIAC scholar athlete banquet, Junior Emily McCovoy as one of only 30 Governors Scholars in the state of Connecticut at a luncheon sponsored by the Connecticut Association of Schools and held our super senior banquet honoring over 100 seniors who will be graduating with a perfect discipline record. We held our annual awards and scholarship night for our graduating seniors, distributing nearly $88,000 from local families and organizations. We celebrated the success of our SHAPE students, our nursing students, our unified sports team, our spring athletes and our music students at annual awards banquets.  We inducted new students into our Art, Music, Spanish, French, Science and National Honor Societies.   Our music students shared their talents at the spring concert and in our Memorial Day parade.  We held two successful proms and are preparing for exams and graduation.  We hosted a very successful day of tolerance as the entire student body participated in an assembly entitled The Truth About Hate followed by our annual Luau helping to raise awareness and money for our Relay For Life Team.  All these celebrations and activities are representative of the plethora of experiences afforded our students to help them learn and grow.   

The administration and school data teams are in the process of evaluating our success on our school growth plan related to improved SAT scores, decreased chronic absenteeism and increase success in AP/UConn and College readiness classes.  Our growth in these areas will help shape our goals for the upcoming 2017-18 school year.  These plans will be worked on and finalized over the summer and shared with staff in preparation for school opening in late August.

            I want to wish everyone a productive and positive end to the school year and a happy and healthy summer with many opportunities to relax and enjoy friends and family.

Walter Drewry
