Greetings Wolcott High School Families:

We have had a busy start to the new year. We recently wrapped up midterm exams and all of our students worked diligently to complete them despite numerous impediments due to illnesses this winter. Report cards will be going out later this week during Flex time, so please check with your students to see them. Many exciting events have been happening during the past few weeks. Please take the opportunity to read about some of them below.

The Wolcott High School Music Department is proud to present the young musicians who were accepted into the 2020 CMEA Southern Region Music Festival. Amanda Brouillard, Kelsey Guinipero, Riley Martin, Alexandra O’Meara, Matthew Ruegg, and Julia Thies were all accepted into the Southern Region Choir. Caidan Pilarski was accepted into the Southern Region Concert Band, and Anthony Giordano was accepted into the Southern Region Jazz Band. The festival took place on January 10 & 11 at Maloney High School in Meriden, CT. We are so proud of these extraordinary young musicians, who performed with the best high school musicians in our region from over 30 other high schools. They worked with professional conductors from all over the country, and had the honor of performing in a professional concert to end the experience. They represented Wolcott High School with pride! Congratulations!

January 4, 2020 was a big day for our WHS Robotics Team. Over 40 teams and hundreds of students, mentors, and parents attended the FIRST Robotics Competition Kick Off at WHS. Infinite Recharge is the title of this year’s season, and it will feature a fun Star Wars theme. Over the next 6 weeks our team will be working diligently making a robot to meet the challenge.

On January 27, 2020, eleven new members were inducted into the WHS EXCEL Club. Julia Hynek was sworn in as President of the club and Youseff Macary was sworn in as Treasurer. The EXCEL Club is a group of students dedicated to improving the school and making a positive difference in our community through volunteerism. EXCEL Club is now 39 members strong.

Our WHS Cheerleading Team recently returned from a trip to Florida where they participated in the FCDA Mid-State Madness Cheer & Dance Championship. They took home 1st place at the High School Varsity level and were the Grand Champions of the whole competition. We are extremely proud of their accomplishments.

These are just some of the many exciting happenings at Wolcott High School.

 

Sincerely,

Walt Drewry
