The Dragon’s Den

Hello again, readers, and welcome back to The Dragon’s Den! We had a very full week this week, so step on the diving board, because we’re about to dive right into the week’s news. 

This was a great week for sports at Woodland High school, so let’s just run through the highlights. On Saturday, the baseball team played Shead High School at the Mansfield stadium in Bangor. In a nail biter game under the big lights, our Dragons beat Shead 5-3. Playing Shead at Hamden Academy, the softball had a very big win of 16-0. A great video of these game can be found on the WABI website. Tennis had a comical week, driving all the way to Shead for their tennis match only to be rained out by a thunder and lightning storm. On Saturday, the tennis team got to play Van Buren in a double-header match. The tennis team did not come away with the win, but it was a fun Saturday morning. 

The Spring Arts show was held this Saturday night at WHS. This is usually the longest concert of the year, and this year was no exception. Students sang and played their instruments to a great turn out, and artwork done by students in the visual art program was displayed. A memorial picture for Henry Noonan was unveiled by the alumni band, which performed a song with the current members of the Woodland High School band. On a more somber note, this concert was the final performance that our band director Alice Sullivan will be conducting with the high school. Next year she will be working exclusively with the elementary school, and the current chorus director, Christine Sawtelle, will be taking over the high school responsibility. We will really miss Mrs. Sullivan, and we wish her the best and hope to see a lot of her as she moves on to help more young students discover the power of music. 

Progress reports came out this week. This marks the last progress report that will come out before the end of the year. Students, be sure to pass your classes so you will not have to make up any classes next year.

Next Wednesday, the art club will be tie-dying T-shirts after school. If students want to participate in this, be sure to sign up outside the art room door. That just about wraps us up this week. Until next week, as always, thanks for checking in.
