WRVHS News: 11.26.18

Welcome Back from the Thanksgiving Holiday!

Last week’s Morning Meeting featured lots of compliments from our “Compliment Box” and a series of Thanksgiving readings.  Students regularly express gratitude for others in our community via our “Compliments Box”.   We also made a circle in the gym for Thanksgiving readings and additional expressions of gratitude.

Coming up this week in Morning Meeting will be a review of expectations as we go into four full weeks before the Christmas break.  Plus this Thursday we travel as a school to the HOP at Dartmouth to see Shakespeare’s Coriolanus.  If you’d like a peek at what is in store for us here is the Coriolanus trailer.  For a comprehensive look at expectations for Wildcats at White River Valley High School visit our new WRVS Website under the Our School/Handbook listing.

Congratulations to all of our musicians who were accepted to the Winooski Valley Music Festival on November 15-16th!  Although the Festival was cut short thanks snow on the 16th, our students did us proud:
