Principal’s Message

 

 

 

Greetings from Wolcott High School:

 

We have exciting news to share! Wolcott High School has earned a spot on the College Board’s 9th Annual AP® District Honor Roll. The honor roll recognizes school districts in the United States and Canada that have expanded access to Advanced Placement® coursework and maintained or increased the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP Exams. We are very proud of this accomplishment. The complete listing can be found at the following link:

In early January, Wolcott High School hosted the Wolcott Girl’s Movement Rally.  Our School Counseling department played an integral part in getting this event set up here at the school.  Inspiring local women presented panels and hosted activities with the intention of motivating young women throughout the community.

 

On Thursday, January 24th, the Wolcott High School DECA club hosted a dance in support of the Unified Sports Team open to the entire student body! Students filled themselves up with pizza donated by Spartans II and baked goods prepared by Mr. Tutalo and his students. Former student Brad Watts volunteered his time to DJ for the event. DECA will directly donate all proceeds to the Unified Sports Team. The dance turned out to be a great way for special needs students to interact with peers, where everyone  had a fun night of music, dancing, and snacking . Unified Sports athlete, Shaelyn Hamel stated “This is really fun! It’s like a homecoming for the Unified Team.

 

On Saturday, January 26, 2019 the Wolcott Middle School Robotics team competed at the Windsor State Qualifying event.  They attended this event having already qualified for the state championship at the previous event.  Twenty six schools competed at the event this Saturday, in teams from 6th graders to 12th graders.  Most teams present are from high schools.  At the end of the day, the team finished with a record of 5-1 and ranked 3rd overall.  In the playoffs they made it to the finals before losing in the last match of the day.  Congratulations goes out to Eldin Krcic, Brandon Masse, Peter Spada, Ethan Schneider, JT Plona, and Riley Wilson.  The state championship will be held on Feb 24th at the Greenwich Academy.  It is free to attend.

 

On Monday, January 28, 2019 at 6:30 the Exchange Club of Wolcott and members of the community gathered to celebrate the Excel Club and the installation of our new members.  During the evening’s proceedings, new member Makenzie Cossette performed the National Anthem and officers of the club shared their thoughts and the thoughts of the membership in a presentation.  Several members from the Exchange Club of Wolcott attended: Mr. Mike DeNegris and Mrs. Annette Petruzzi shared remarks; Mr. Joseph Krajeski, CT District Director, Division IV, Exchange Club attended and led the installation ceremony; Mr. Roger Picard photographed the event.  Refreshments were provided by CCs Chocolates, La Fortuna Restaurant and WHS Culinary Program.

 

CAS is hosting the 36th Annual High School Scholar-Athlete Awards Banquet on Sunday, May 5, 2019, at the Aqua Turf Club in Plantsville. This prestigious recognition dinner honors high school seniors who excel academically as well as play a CIAC-sponsored varsity sport.
