"How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and the strong. . . . because someday in life you will have been all of these."
Dear Parents, Students, Community Members and Friends,
It is hard to believe that April is already here – especially considering that the weather does not feel much like spring!
I hope you have had a chance to view the WHS Lip Dub (see link above) which exemplifies the spirit, unity and access to opportunity at WHS. Our students created this video, and their leadership and tremendous accomplishment is a great source of pride for the WUSD.
We have many exciting events coming up at the end of the year, spring sports have begun, and Prom and Advanced Placement testing is just around the corner at WHS. It is a busy and exciting time of the year.
We will be acknowledging two important awards at the April 22nd Board meeting – the national music organization, the NAMM Foundation has named Watertown among the nation’s Best Communities for Music Education! Watertown joins 307 districts across the country to receive this prestigious distinction. We are fortunate to offer high levels of music programming to our students – thanks in large part to our great music staff.
Additionally, we will be recognizing WHS teacher, Jesse Domer, who was awarded Technical Educator of the Year by the Wisconsin Technical Educator Association. Jesse stands out as a leader and role model for successful technical education programs in the state, and we are lucky in the WUSD to have him here.
We will be rolling out a new award in the WUSD, the Distinguished Alumni Award. This award has been created to provide our current students and community with a vision of the outstanding legacies of Watertown High School. Please review the eligibility and criteria and consider making a nomination at the above red link. The winner will be acknowledged at Homecoming this fall.
