These four #WatertownWay WHS Seniors have earned the Global Seal of Biliteracy! The Global Seal of Biliteracy is an international credential that conveys proficiency with language skills in two or more languages for qualifying candidates. These incredible students displayed their proficiency in both English and Spanish to earn the Functional Fluency Award! The Global Seal of Biliteracy enables programs across the world to quickly validate a student’s language skills to provide recognition, appropriate and/or advanced placement in a language program, and even help earn scholarships and job opportunities.

Memorial Day is a time to reflect upon those who served in our US Military. Today, our #WatertownWay REACH 18-21 Transition Program students spent the day learning about the history of Memorial Day. Students had the opportunity to walk around the Watertown Veterans Memorial Park honoring those men and women who served our country. While at the park, they discussed the different branches of the Military, the unforgettable wars, and special medals awarded for their service. The REACH students and staff would like to recognize and thank all those men and women who served in our US Military past and present - especially those who are from our Watertown Community.
The WUSD would like to thank all of our extraordinary scholarship donors for awarding $500,000 in scholarships to our outstanding #WatertownWay Class of 2022 Seniors last night! We are extremely humbled! Words cannot describe your generosity! THANK YOU!

Mrs. Wallace’s morning 4K class at Douglas Elementary read “Not A Box” this week. The rabbit in the story used his imagination to make his box into many different things. Our #WatertownWay little learners used their imaginations to create their own things out of cardboard such as rocket ships, Barbie houses and boats. What a fun story!
