Many of the senior activities from last week can be viewed on our Instagram page.  There are a lot of fun videos there!  www.instagram.com/whssachems

Or you can access our feed on the high school website.  http://www.winchesterps.org/schools/winchester_high_school/index.php

We hope you were able to make the Enka fair this past weekend and enjoy some community time.  Mrs. Conis and I “enjoyed” the dunk tank.  I went Friday and Mrs. Conis went Saturday afternoon.  The water was cold, brown (of course it was) and with a nice dose of bleach thrown in to kill any and all living things.  We highly recommend volunteering next year!

 

The Senior Awards night was a lovely event.  We had over 100 members of the class of 2017 receive an award.  Congratulations to all in attendance!
