Drums and bayonets will appear at Victory Park today, May 24, as the seventh grade students get a taste of life for the blue and the gray. Many re-enactors, historians and enthusiasts will help the kids understand what it was like to learn to march, dance the Virginia Reel, live as soldiers and fire a musket. This is always a wonderful end-of-the year celebration and learning experience for the students.

Both the middle and high schools put on wonderful exhibitions of student work recently. The high school art show featured a broad array of skillfully created artwork. The middle school Encore Celebration also featured artwork and included displays from home and careers, technology, computer class and more. The event also featured the seventh and eighth grade bands and choruses. Great job to everyone who took part and made it happen.


Please come out to the local community parades and cemetery services on Memorial Day. The two marching bands will be taking part in the parades and this is a wonderful learning opportunity for your family. The local newspapers will feature the schedule of ceremonies hosted by the area American Legions during the Memorial Day services. It takes a community of committed volunteers to make sure your deceased servicemen and women are shown due respect and it is important that as community members we too take part in recognizing their service to our country.


The middle school Robotics Club is looking for your old Legos and Duplo building blocks. Maybe they are tucked away in the attic collecting dust or hiding out in the very dark corner of a closet. The club would like to expand its building materials to host some community events and make building their robots for competition a little easier.


Also, the Grad Bash Committee is still in need of volunteers including chaperones, installation volunteers, clean-up etc. If you are interested, check out the website, www.wccsk12.org, or call the high school at 585-728-2366. This is a wonderful event that keeps our seniors safe during graduation weekend and depends entirely on a generous community of financial supports and volunteers.
