2017-2018: Episode 18

Good morning WHS community,

This week, with our February vacation just around the corner, we have a special guest blog from Mr. Paul Hackett. Mr. Hackett is one of our art teachers and he has been working on a very interesting cross-curricular project with his students that combines art and data.

Translating & Tracking Data with Art

By Paul Hackett, Visual Art Teacher

In the age of big data, how do we synthesize information and express meaning visually?  Each year I challenge my Honors Art class to collect data over a three-week period and express their findings visually through art.

Our students (often) respond in two ways.  Many collect existing bodies of scientific data, and others use technology apps to self-track data of their own. I’d like to share a few responses from this year’s class.

Kei Fieleke created a digital piece using photographs she took of fifty Winchester High School students to compose a singular portrait she titles “Amalgamation”.  Kei writes: “In a sense, I have created “the average” Winchester High School student, but on their own, every single person…has their own individuality…there are thousands of different stories from the people displayed…”.


Kei Fieleke’s “Amalgamation”

Haley Garabedian used an app to track the most played songs on her 2017 Spotify playlist.  To express the data visually she coupled musical genres together in boxes, drawing album covers in tiny squares.  “I was a bit embarrassed by some of the song choices”, Haley explained.  “But, the data does not lie”.

Haley Garabedian’s “Spotify”

Olivia Baldacci used an app to track her phone usage over a week’s time.  She drew a portrait of the phone over her face, listing the amount of time spent each day.  In her statement she writes: “I decided to take data on this because it’s alarming how much of our day we actually spend looking down at a screen. I drew a girl holding her phone in front her with all the data on it to show that its covering so much of her face, and overwhelming her life. In the background I made green vibrant colors because it shows how much she is missing in the real world behind her.”

Olivia Baldacci’s Data Portrait

With the data assignment, students tend to gravitate towards tracking data that directly impacts their day-to-day life. The data starts from a personal inquiry and expands to reveal surprising aspects of our physical, social, and cultural lives. In the future, I hope for students to apply processes in fields of sciences, mathematics, and humanities to visual art; and to discover how art can help uncover new ways of looking at other fields of study.

Thank you for sharing Mr. Hackett!

WHS Students in Madrid: Our students landed safely in Madrid, Spain last week. The students are a part of a cultural exchange for the next 3 weeks where they will be living with host families and traveling throughout Spain.

WL Spanish Exchange 17-18

WHS French/Spanish Paint Night: Below is a picture of one of the many fun little things we do at WHS. Some of our World Languages French and Spanish students get together for a “paint night” with Mrs. Anderson and Mrs. Keane. These are little activities often go unreported or don’t get the praise they deserve but the students remember them!


W.I.N. Block Class of 218 Assembly: All members of the Class of 2018 will be attending a W.I.N. Block assembly brought to WHS by our Coalition for a Safer Community and the foundation. The assembly will be about the differences between healthy relationships and potentially abusive relationships. We will be discussing the programming from called “Behind the post”. You can view the video and some of the discussion materials at Attendance is expected.

W.I.N. Block Electives Fair: This Wednesday, 2/14, as part of our W.I.N. Block offerings, our students will be invited to attend WHS’s first electives fair. Students in the classes of 2019, 2020, and 2021 will be called down to the cafeteria by grade to visit “booths” dedicated to the different elective offerings WHS has and to ask questions of the teachers and students currently in those electives. This will allow students an opportunity to see what WHS offers, ask questions, and make informed decisions about what electives they want to request for the 2018-19 school year.  Attendance is not mandatory.

This concept is a first effort and we are putting it together very quickly to meet the course the selection deadline. Our intent is to grow and evolve this fair in the coming years should we keep the W.I.N. Block concept.

Class of 2019 College Night: 2/15, 7-8:30 pm, WHS Aud

The College Planning Night is the first in a series of programs designed to equip families and students with as much information as possible about the college process and will feature local Admissions professionals who will describe the admissions process from the school’s perspective. This year’s panel includes representatives from Boston University, Merrimack College and UMass Amherst.

Guidance Coordinator Suzanne Ontso will discuss how to get started on the college search process and provide an overview of how to use Naviance.

Students should attend this workshop with their parents.

Night of the Arts: Get ready for NOTA 4.0! Student Council will be hosting their annual Night of the Arts on Tuesday, March 6th, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm to celebrate the artistic talents of WHS students and faculty.


W.I.N. Block Reminder: Wednesday we do have a W.I.N. Block. Please remind our students to sign up online ahead of time. Rosie, our WHS Therapy Dog, is on vacation this week. She will return after February break.

Happy Monday to all,

Boooooo…that’s all I’ll say about the game last night.

We’ve officially made it to February.  Puxatawny Phil may not have had the best news for us, but with February break just two short weeks away, I think we can rally past the predictions of that shadow-seeing little rodent.  Since we’ve mentioned February break, just a reminder that we have students leaving on the Spanish exchange trip this week.  Buen Viaje!

Students in Ms. Angus’ physics classroom work on a static forces and electromagnetic charge lab.

Our choral students performed in A Capella Fest this weekend alongside some of the region’s collegiate a capella groups.  We were delighted to see some of our alumni return to the WHS stage with their college groups to share their talents with Winchester.

Electives Fair: We are currently putting together an Electives Fair for the W.I.N. block on 2/14.  This would be an opportunity for freshmen, sophomores, and juniors to find out and ask questions about the electives offerings in all departments at WHS.  W.I.N. Block Sign Ups

2017-2018: Episode 16

Hello readers and welcome back! We are proud to say that we had a GREAT first effort at W.I.N. Block this past week. Below are some of the pictures of our students taking advantage of the many different offerings during the new block. We have some amazing new ideas being discussed (college interview skill practice, game/puzzle room) that should help our students take a break from the grind but continue to allow them to grow and think at the same time.

A reminder that this Wednesday, 1/31, is a half day and we will NOT have a W.I.N. Block that period.

The quarter 2/semester 1 grades will be made available to you the afternoon of 2/1.

Winter Evening of Instrumental Music: Tuesday, 1/30 @ 7:00 PM in the WHS Aud. We will have performances by the Jazz Ensemble, Concert Band, Orchestra and Symphony. Featuring works by Bach, Persichetti, Morricone, and more Help to support our student musicians and music program!

The Night of the Arts (NOTA) has been booked for 3/6…stay tuned for more information!

WHS Student Recognition: The Winchester High School  team has won the 2018 Massachusetts State Real World Design Challenge (RWDC).  Team “Flight 01890” consists of Jennifer Kim,  Valeriy Soltan, Sam Lee, Tyler Clift and Roy Xing. Team Flight 01890 will now advance to the Nationals which will take place in Washington, DC in April.

The Real World Design Challenge (RWDC) is an annual competition that provides high school students, grades 9-12, the opportunity to work on real world engineering challenges in a team environment. Each year, student teams are asked to address a challenge that confronts our nation’s leading industries. Students utilize professional engineering software to develop their solutions and also generate presentations that convincingly demonstrate the value of their solutions. The RWDC provides students with opportunities to apply the lessons of the classroom to the technical problems that are being faced in the workplace. Each student on the national winning team wins a $50K scholarship to Embry Riddle Aeronautical University.

The 2017 RWDC National Competition winner was Phillips Academy in Andover…who we beat this year to get to Nationals! Congratulations to Jennifer, Val, Sam, Tyler and Roy!


More WHS Student Recognition: Please help recognize WHS Criminal Justice Club Vice President Lukas Hoertdoerfer for organizing a successful winter hat, glove and sock campaign for the Massachusetts Limbless and Disabled Veteran’s Association over the month of December.  Lukas and other club members collected over 300 hats, gloves and socks and recently gave them to the Associations Executive Director.  We are proud of Lukas as he is another shining example of our outstanding Winchester High School students who make a difference.

2017-2018: Episode 15

It’s January, we just finished semester 1 and the Pats are going to the Super Bowl. It really could be almost any year that I am writing this! WHS had a very Patriot-like first semester. Many of our kids did amazing things, achieved new goals for themselves and put a lot of hard work into everything they did. Just like the Pats, we are proud of our students and all they achieve no matter what is in front of them and no matter the odds may be. Like the Pats are moving on to Minnesota…WHS is moving on to the second semester!

W.I.N. Block: We are now live with signups and two days away from our first W.I.N. Block. Please speak with your students about our W.I.N. Block Expectations and the many offerings we have for them.  You can take a look at the many choices by using this link:  W.I.N. Block Signups All freshman students will be attending an assembly on Mindfulness during this first W.I.N. Block. We are looking forward to seeing what this new time for our students and staff will bring us.

A final reminder for our Minding Your Mind program that is happening this week.

Senior Honors Art Display: Our senior artists have a number of their works on display around the school. Below are just a few of the pop-up galleries:


Please see the flyer below announcing this year’s Regional High School Artist Show at the Lexington Arts & Crafts Society.  This year WHS has over 30 students showing at the gallery from grades 9-12.  The work represents our HS art curriculum, but more importantly it showcases the skill, creativity and diverse creative pursuits of our students.  Please consider attending the opening Sunday January 28th from 2-4 pm.  The work on display from each of the nine participating schools is excellent!


Belle of the Ball: Class of 2018’s Michaela Wood is once again spearheading her amazing “Belle of the Ball” prom dress donation program. The collection of dresses will be in the main office of the high school and begins on February 5. This will mark the 3rd year that WHS has participated in the program. Michaela has a done a truly amazing job of helping those less fortunate and we are very proud of her leadership. Bellow is a description of the program.

Belle of the Ball distributes cleaned prom dresses at no charge to high school junior and senior girls who could not otherwise afford to attend their school’s prom. Unlike other prom gown collection drives, this program culminates with a day-long boutique where deserving girls are invited for a day of personal shopping and pampering.

Revolution Prep is once again offering SAT and ACT support for our students. Please see this link for more information. Thank you to Revolution Prep for continuing to partner with WHS and for their support of our students. Practice Exams Winchester

WHS is proud to say that our students raised over $18,000, a new WHS record, to help make the holiday dreams of over 150 Winchester children come true. This is one of the few WHOLE SCHOOL activities and one of the BEST examples of the wonderful place we call WHS.

WHS Student In The News:  The Class of 2020’s own Katherine Yu, who does not like being in the spotlight, won the Math Prize for the Girls Olympiad.  Katherine was a bronze medalist, which means she was in the top half of the 43 students nationwide who applied and qualified to take this very difficult test. The test itself was 4 hours long and consisted of writing 4 proofs. This is an amazing accomplishment by Ms. Yu and WHS is proud to highlight such a talented student!

Hello all and welcome back to the TEAM WHS Blog! This week’s blog will be just some highlights and fun pictures from last week. We are currently preparing for the upcoming WHS Gives Back event and then the much anticipated holiday break. Please stay tuned for more information regarding the Community Hour pilot initiative.

The first picture below is one of my favorites in a while. It captures that the teacher/student relationship is the most important part of what we do at WHS. When we build strong relationships with our students; the bonds will last forever. Those relationships will certainly have a lasting positive impact as all of our students eventually do outgrow WHS.

Last Thursday’s winter choral event was so much fun! Big congratulations to all of the students and Mr. Buford!

Physics Class Highlight: Check out these two videos from Mr. Pundit-Murphy’s physics classes. The students are looking at acceleration, the mass of an object and what happens in a collision. We are happy to see the classes really utilize their new spaces and smartly use their phones in the classrooms!

WHS Students and WFEE:  (From the WFEE Newsletter) “WFEE has focused for nearly 25 years on supporting Winchester educators. That will never change. But, we are expanding our focus. Meet Will Bicks, WHS Sophomore. Will is one of the first recipients of the WFEE Student Innovation Grant. Set up as an outgrowth of the powerED UP! campaign, the Innovation Grants are designed to allow students to undertake projects that push the bounds of learning.


So why is Will lying on his back in WHS lab? He is creating an immersive video dome to be used with educational media. In English? He is taking a geodesic dome, created as a powerED UP! project last year, covering it with material that mimics a movie screen, setting up multiple LCD projectors and using software that provides a virtual tour of the inside a human cell. “It is a shared immersive experience, allowing many students to experience the tour at a time, similar to an IMAX, but panoramic.” Will Bicks, Grant Recipient. Biology classes will begin using the dome later this winter.

Will and his colleagues at WHS continue to engineer final project details. At WFEE, we believe that process is as important as product,making this grant a success.”

Law Enforcement and WHS: Last week SRO Perenick took a number of our students to learn more about what the shared special unit known as the NEMLEC Stars do when they are called upon during a significant safety event.

Our WHS Junior Statesmen of America (JSA) attended their annual weekend convention at the Boston Park Plaza hotel. As always, we are proud to report that our students were civic minded and politically engaged. The theme was JSA – Be The People.

FOOD! Wednesday, 12/13, will be the annual PFA holiday breakfast for WHS Staff. We want to thank the continued and unwavering support that the WHS PFA always provides for our students and staff. Thank you for always putting WHS first and working with us to help make WHS the great school it is!

Blood Drive:  WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 20th in the WHS Gymnasium 8 AM-1 PM. Our Connect & Commit and the Red Cross Club are hosting a blood drive. Please talk with your student and ask them if they want to donate. This year we are also looking for Power Red donors. Power Red is similar to a whole blood donation, except a special machine is used to allow you to safely donate two units of red blood cells during one donation while returning your plasma and platelets to you. With Power Red donations you SAVE TIME, MAKE A LARGER IMPACT, and FEEL BETTER after donating. 

Community Hour Pilot:  93% of the students who responded to the survey (409 total responders) voted in favor of piloting the Community Hour idea. Those who left responses, with their name, will receive a direct response from Dennis Mahoney. We are currently exploring the possibility of a digital pass system. Please know that pass system ideas are always welcome!

We welcome input and volunteers from our community if you would like to get involved in any way. We will be trying to make a decision on moving forward with the pilot for second semester, and which quarter to begin this pilot very soon. Please stay tuned!

Welcome back readers,

We hope you had a relaxing and enjoyable Thanksgiving. The short week leading up to the mini-break was our famous Spirit 1/2 Week.  Below are some highlight pictures of our pep rally.  Our Instagram, @whssachems, and Twitter, @wshmahoney, have some wonderful videos of the event. The “boys cheerleaders” was a sight to behold. We will have full video coverage of the entire event out to you soon.

Many staff members took advantage of Spirit 1/2 Weeks “Grey It Out” Monday.

Last Week’s Message to Students:  At this time of reflection and giving thanks, we wanted to make sure that we said thank you to you, our students, for everything you do. We are so proud every day of all of the hard work you put into everything. We love your spirit, we love your dedication, and we love your passion.  Thank you for making our school the great place it is and being the reason why it is known as THE Winchester High School.  We know that this doesn’t happen without a lot of hard work on your part, and we appreciate and honor that hard work.

This mini-break we have coming up over the Thanksgiving weekend is a perfect time to disconnect from the hard work, unplug, relax, and instead connect with your loved ones and friends. We wanted to share this video with you before we break because we felt that the message, though maybe a bit preachy, is thoughtful and important. Personally, I plan on heeding the message in the video as well, as I am certainly guilty of looking down and not up as much as I should.    Look Up

Winter Sports Tryouts: Good luck to all of our student athletes this week as the winter season officially begins today. We know that you will all represent WHS with class and sportsmanship.

WHS Student Achievement: Please join me in congratulating Andrea Huang (’19).  Andrea has been selected from students all over the country to participate in the the National Honor Ensembles’Orchestra. Andrea was eligible for the honor by her consistent selection to the Massachusetts All-State Orchestra and chosen by audition.
