Host Families Needed for Chinese Summer Program PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 07 April 2014 09:08

 

Once again we at WUHSMS are hoping to host a Chinese Camp with students from central China through Spiral International.  This program will run during the month of July for twelve days.  At this point we do NOT have confirmed dates, but hoping to hear soon.

We need to find 15 hosts to house two students each and one host to host two teachers, one of whom will speak English! We are glad to have hosts be singles, couples, and families with any age children as the goal of the group is to improve their speaking abilities in English and to experience American culture, the way we do it in Vermont!  Most of them have not traveled outside their own country and most have little experience with nature, so this is a very exciting opportunity for them.
I can supply you with more information if you are interested in hosting!  Can you please do the following:
1.  Reply to this email if you are interested in hosting.
2.  Forward this to other friends who may be interested.
We need a strong response by mid-May if we are going to be able to run this camp!
A little more information to consider:  Each host receives a stipend to help offset costs for hosting two students or teachers.  During the week days that they are here, the students attend classes and activities at WUHSMS from 8:30 to 3 or longer each day.  We will plan a day trip around Vermont on one of the days and we will have optional weekend activities as well.  We have found that it alsoworks nicely when hosts who know each other take students and then join up to do activities together.
Please consider this great cross-cultural opportunity!  This will be our fourth year in this community and we look forward to hearing from you!
Sincerely,
Keri Bristow, Spiral Chinese Camp Director/Teacher

Project Graduation Plans Are Underway PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 31 March 2014 14:03

Attention Senior Parents:  Project Graduation plans are underway and hopefully you have received an email about this.  This is a reminder that we are hoping you will be able to support this event as follows:  An event of this scope requires substantial financial resources, and the senior class has already contributed from their class funds.  We are asking for your support in any amount that you can give.  It will be most appreciated as the event costs approximately $50 per student.  We welcome support from grandparents and extended family as well! We would appreciate receiving your donation as soon as possible. This will enable us to begin reserving space and renting entertainment now.  You can send a check into school made out to WUHS with a notation for Project Graduation.  It can be given to the office who will direct it to Patty Wilson, our bookkeeper.

 
New Procedures for Building Entry PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 28 March 2014 14:15

Starting on Monday, March 31, we will implement our new building entry procedures.  I've been working with the MSHS Safety Committee in this effort and thank them for their ongoing work.

In an effort to improve our oversight of building access, the front MS and HS doors will be locked starting at 8:15 and will remain locked until 2:45.  Cameras, microphones, and a door buzzers have been installed to allow visitors to request entry via a member of the front office staff.

The B&G staff will also be supporting this effort by checking and locking doors throughout the day.

Thank you,
Greg Schillinger, on behalf of the Safety Committee

Culture Club in Beantown PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 26 March 2014 09:08

On Monday, March 17th the WUHS Culture Club took a food walking tour of the North End in Boston as part of their year long study of Italian culture.  Students had the opportunity to sample delectable treats like cannoli at a pastry shop and cactus fruit at a green grocer.  Other stops on the tour included a coffee and dry goods shop, a bread bakery and a salumeria or meat shop where students sampled prosciutto, cheese, olive oil and balsamic vinegar.  Culture Club ended their tour with lunch at Galleria Umberto  where they had Sicilian style pizza and arancini which are rice balls stuffed with meat, peas and mozzarella cheese.  Students learned about authentic Italian food, the different courses in a typical Italian meal, how the food is regional and how Italian food and traditions changed as Italians came to America.  This trip was made possible in part by an endowment grant from the Woodstock Union High School Endowment Association.  Click on the image to view the entire gallery.

Monday, 10 March 2014 08:14

WUHS and WUMS students have participated in two off-campus discussion groups for the book Wonder by R.J. Palacio.  In mid-February, Katie Miller and Holli Olson, both members of Med Club, went to the Barnard Academy with Ms.Piccoli to visit Mrs. Kardashian's fifth grade class and to discuss the book.  Principal Anne Koop and Librarian Eileen Vaughn participated in the discussion and twenty five students from Killington Elementary skyped in.  Students asked thought provoking questions and gave thoughtful and insightful responses.  Yesterday, Rhi Begin and Ben Blanchard, both seventh grade students, joined a discussion group at the Thompson Senior Center which was hosted by thePomfret Library.  It was a great opportunity for our students to share their reactions to the book and exchange ideas with the Senior Center participants on topics like friendship, bullying and acceptance.  If you are interested in readingWonder, please see Ms. Piccoli.  She received 80 copies through a grant from the Vermont Humanities Council.  Click on the image to view the entire gallery.
