The Dragon’s Den

Town News

Welcome, readers, to the Dragon’s Den. On this, the last full week before Thanksgiving break, WHS was a hive of activity. So let’s step onto the quicksand and sink into this week’s news. 

On Tuesday morning, students who made the honor roll from grades 7-12 were treated to the traditional honor roll breakfast. Students loaded the bus and went to the Big Stop for some early morning delights. The next honor roll breakfast will be held at the end of the second quarter, and anyone who wants to attend will have to keep their grades at an 85 or above. 

The basketball teams had their first scrimmages of the season on Friday, traveling internationally to play against St. Stephen High School. The girls played a tough game, with three of their players fouling out of the game, but alas, they did not come out victorious. The boys’ team, on the other hand, did win their game! These games don’t count towards their season, but they are a good starting point for the teams. We wish them, and the junior varsity teams, the best of luck with the rest of their season!

The Academic Decathlon team had the first competition of their season too. Their first round of testing was held at Calais High School this Saturday. These tests are to give members of the Academic Decathlon team a feel for what testing at the State level will be like. There will be one more round of practice testing before the big meet in Portland. We wish our Decathleets the best of luck!

The Patsy’s Peeps Relay for Life team is planning a big fundraiser- a Pro-Wrestling Event! This event will be held on December 14th and tickets are on sale now! If you’re interested in buying tickets, they are for sale at Artemis’s Attic on Main Street in Calais or at the Woodland Food Mart. You can also go to the event facebook page, by searching “Pro Wrestling with Global Entertainment Fundraisers.” There will be a snow-date for this event as well, which will be released soon. 

The SkillsUSA group from Woodland, Calais, and Eastport High Schools will be having a spaghetti supper on December 11th, from 5:00  to 6:30pm. This will be to raise money so the program can go to the state competitions this year. Adult admission is $7 and $3 for children under 12-years-old. Or, just bring the whole family, which will cost $20. There will also be a Chinese raffle. So come out and support the SkillsUSA team! 

That wraps it up for this week’s news from the Dragon’s Den. We’ll be back next week with more news from Woodland Jr. Sr., and until then, thanks for checking in!
