Hey Lancers!

This is the last WHS Student & Parent Weekly Update email for the 2021-2022 school year, and we wish you all a happy, healthy, and relaxing summer break. We will continue to send out information to families on an as-needed basis throughout the summer, and we will see you all back at WHS for the start of the 2022-2023 school year!

Congratulations to our Graduates! The Waterford High School Class of 2022 Graduation takes place at 6:00 pm today, and we all want to wish our graduating students congratulations on all that they have accomplished so far and the best of luck in their future adventures! If you are attending the ceremony, we look forward to seeing you this evening. And if you are not attending the ceremony but wish to view it online, we will be live-streaming it on our YouTube channel at: https://youtu.be/gEauhn4ojwA

Thank You Faculty and Staff! This year WHS welcomed our students back to fulltime in-person learning while still dealing with the impact of the pandemic, and it would not have been so successful without the tremendous work of our teachers, counselors, and support staff. We can’t overstate your importance or the positive impact you had on our students this year, so thank you all for everything you have done to support quality education at WHS this year!

WHS Athletics Newsletter: The latest edition of the Waterford Athletics Newsletter is available on the WHS website. The Newsletter highlights achievements in the athletic department and contains registration information for the upcoming fall season. WHS ATHLETICS NEWSLETTER - FALL 22.23

School Photos: If you haven’t ordered print copies of your child’s school photos from this year, it is still not too late. This letter from our school photographer has information on how you can order them but do it soon, as images are only available online until June 30. School Photos - Yearend Letter.pdf

School-Issued Chromebooks: If you are a student in grades 9-11 with a school-issued Chromebook, you should keep that device over the summer for use next fall. However, if your family is moving away from Waterford over the summer, this attachment has information on how to return the device to the school before you leave.

¡Hola, Lanceros!

Este es el último correo electrónico de actualización semanal para estudiantes y padres de WHS para el año escolar 2021-2022, y les deseamos a todos unas vacaciones de verano felices, saludables y relajantes. Continuaremos enviando información a las familias según sea necesario durante el verano, ¡y los veremos a todos de regreso en WHS para el comienzo del año escolar 2022-2023!

¡Felicitaciones a nuestros Graduados! La graduación de 2022 de la Escuela Secundaria de Waterford se llevará a cabo hoy a las 6:00 p. m., y todos queremos desearles a nuestros estudiantes que se gradúan felicidades por todo lo que han logrado hasta ahora y ¡la mejor de las suertes en sus futuras aventuras! Si asiste a la ceremonia, esperamos verlo esta noche. Y si no asistirá a la ceremonia pero desea verla en línea, la transmitiremos en vivo en nuestro canal de YouTube en: https://youtu.be/gEauhn4ojwA

¡Gracias Facultad y Personal! Este año, WHS dio la bienvenida a nuestros estudiantes al aprendizaje presencial de tiempo completo mientras aún lidiaba con el impacto de la pandemia, y no hubiera sido tan exitoso sin el tremendo trabajo de nuestros maestros, consejeros y personal de apoyo. No podemos exagerar su importancia o el impacto positivo que tuvo en nuestros estudiantes este año, ¡así que gracias a todos por todo lo que han hecho para apoyar la educación de calidad en WHS este año!

Boletín de atletismo de WHS: La última edición del Waterford Athletics Newsletter está disponible en el sitio web de WHS. El boletín destaca los logros en el departamento deportivo y contiene información de registro para la próxima temporada de otoño. BOLETÍN DE ATLETISMO DE WHS - OTOÑO 22.23

Fotos de la escuela: Si no ha pedido copias impresas de las fotos escolares de su hijo de este año, todavía no es demasiado tarde. Esta carta de nuestro fotógrafo escolar tiene información sobre cómo puede pedirlas, pero hágalo pronto, ya que las imágenes solo estarán disponibles en línea hasta el 30 de junio.
