Elementary Math Workshops coming up
Wellesley High School, important Term One dates:
The last day of Term 1 at WHS is Friday, November 1. That day is also the last day a student may withdraw from a semester 1 course without a grade.
For more information, students should contact their guidance counselor in their individual houses (Bradford, Phillips, Perrin). Since 2014, WHS students have been associated with one of three “houses” under the roof of the school as a whole. It was one of then-new principal Jamie Chisum’s moves to better align administrators with students. Here’s how the name of each house was picked.
Dana Hall School Fall Play
The Upper School will present its fall play, 45 Plays for 45 Presidents, on Friday, November 8, and Saturday, November 9, at 7:30 p.m., in Bardwell Auditorium, 37 Cameron St. The performances are free and open to the public.
In each of these short snippets of American history, a member of the ensemble dons the coat of the presidency and the group explores an aspect of that administration. The entire cast will wear white throughout the production as a nod to the suffrage movement 100 years ago. Students in Dana Hall’s Creating Character: An Acting and Costume Design Class researched the symbolism of the color and created looks that span the decades.
“Each president is granted a very short play, allowing us to focus on their accomplishments, disappointments—or sometimes both,” said Daniel Morris, director and Performing Arts faculty member. “While many are quick and funny, the play does not shy away from the complicated history that we share as a nation.”
Bates Pumpkin Fair a rounding success
The 49th Bates Pumpkin Fair raised funds for enrichment programs that benefit Bates students and teachers. The PTO thanks the Wellesley community for coming out to join in on the fun, and the volunteers for making the event possible.
