The GSA intends to increase tolerance and acceptance of all students in our school and community, especially those who identify as LGBTQ. We do so by holding regular meetings and gatherings such as movie nights that are open to the whole school, posting information and LGBTQ-positive materials around the school in public places, and by holding school-wide events such as Spirit Day and the Day of Silence, which are meant to raise awareness about how difficult it can be to grow up LGBTQ.

The Watertown High School Robotics Team was founded in 2007 to compete in FIRST Robotics’ FRC category of annual competitions. Cheerfully nicknamed “The KwarQs”, the team’s student ranks have grown annually from eight to 42 students. Three coaches and a handful of mentor volunteers from engineering, software development and other professional backgrounds guide the students through the process of preparing their readiness for the FRC annual competitions. The team meets weekly for the entire school year and almost daily during its six-week ‘build season’; where the group constructs a 120-pound robot from scratch to comply with and compete in a newly released FRC game. When not competing in official FRC district events, the team competes in local off-season robotic events, conducts charitable activities, attends community service opportunities and builds practice robots to teach and improve their skills for new and veteran members. Students with an interest in learning robotics and a willingness to work with others in a team environment are always welcome.
