Congratulations to Megan Dillon on having been selected to attend the 2016 session of the International Summer School for Young Physicists (ISSYP), hosted by Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada! This is a highy competetive program to get into and a very prestigious opportunity!

The Perimeter Institute is a leading centre for scientific research, training and educational outreach in foundational theoretical physics. Founded in 1999 in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, its mission is to advance our understanding of the universe at the most fundamental level, stimulating the breakthroughs that could transform our future. Perimeter also trains the next generation of physicists through innovative programs, and shares the excitement and wonder of science with students, teachers and the general public.




An open letter to WVH Theatre Arts Group:

Through limited time, changing teachers, march break, competing obligations, car accidents, school trips, back surgeries, foot surgeries, sprained thumbs, tests, work and all other challenges life has to offer our Theatre Arts class conquered regional drama fest this past week.

They took to the stage and showed exactly how poised, brave, hardworking and talented the students at Waterford Valley High really can be.

They performed West Moon in front of a full house of strangers, with just one run on stage, and made us all proud beyond words.

Above and beyond that, they also took part in a full day of exciting (sometimes unusual) workshops and watched three nights worth of productions by the rest of the schools involved. All the while they conducted themselves with energy, leadership and commitment.

Thank you all for your hard work, creativity and willingness to jump out of this particular plane with me. We took a big chance. Our chutes opened, we hit the ground and no one broke any bones.

I am proud and honored to be your teacher this term and I know everyone in this building is too.

Way to go warriors!

Mr. Nurse
