The Dragon’s Den

Camille Howard

After a short leave of absence we have returned to share the news of WHS with you. So let’s get out our lassos and get in the loop! 

The basketball teams at WHS had their senior games this week against Shead High School. The senior game is a tradition at WHS- a way to say goodbye to dedicated players on the basketball teams, cheerleaders, and pep-band members. The girls’ team will be saying goodbye to Courtney James, Josey Lee, and manager Vanessa Kidder. The boys’ team will be saying goodbye to Damon Lincoln, Tyler Cochran, Toby Tomah, and Scott Boies. The cheering team is saying goodbye to Taylor Storey, Brooke Leeman, and Kylee Carouso. And the pep-band is losing Vanessa Kidder, Scott Boies, Weston Renali, Alyssa Campbell, and Andrew Howland. Also this week was the Pink-Zone game, an annual breast-cancer awareness event. This year it was held at Calais High School, and although our girls lost the game, everyone was supporting a noble cause. 

Members of the drama club have just begun rehearsals for their spring production. The club is looking for new members, so any students with an interest in theater or performing arts, please feel free to swing by rehearsal and see how you like it! 

With the help of the Maine Youth Action Network, along with Washington County: One Community, a new club has started at WHS- the Woodland Teens Against Distracted Driving, or TADD group. The group will be having their first meeting on Tuesday, February the 11th, so anyone who is interested in joining the cause, come to this first meeting! It’s surely going to be a fun time, and will be for a noble cause. 

The annual Winter Carnival will begin next week! The student council has been working hard preparing theme days, games, and the traditional Spontaneous Elimination for this years students. Monday this year will be pajama, crazy hair, and crazy makeup day. Tuesday will be superhero day and backwards/Opposite Day. Wednesday is celebrity day and group day.. Thursday is the beloved Redneck/formal, along with What I Want to be When I Grow Up day. And last but not least, Friday is class color, decade, and an addition to Winter Carnival- Dress like a Food day! We’re excited to see how this year’s students celebrate this school tradition- and to see who wins! 

That’s about it for this week at WHS. We’ll be back next week with more news from the Dragon’s Den. Until next time, and thanks for checking in!
