Westmoreland High School
English 9 Honors Summer Reading 2016-17

All upcoming English I Honors students (rising Freshmen) must read The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch with Jeffrey Zaslow and The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien. Students will be tested on these books on the first full day of classes for the fall semester. Students must know that tests count multiple times towards their overall average; failure to complete the reading assignment will negatively affect a student’s overall grade and possible inclusion in the honors program.

                      

Please note that Mr. Gray will offer some extra credit to students that are willing to donate either of these two books to the English/Language Arts Department.

WHS CTE/Metals Sweep SkillsUSA Competition

CTE Metals Teacher Charlie Shaw took four students to the Skills USA tournament and each one of them were recognized among the top students in their fields of competition. Sophomore Dylan Paquette not only won the Silver Award for Welding, but also a scholarship to Lincoln Tech valued at $5,000 to continue his education in the field. Junior Michael Shaw won a Bronze Award for CNC Lathe/Turning. Senior Jacob Tingle won a Silver Award in CNC Milling. Senior Lilly Tucker was named THE STATE CHAMPION in the Sheet Metal Competition. Mr. Shaw said "It is rare for all of a school's student competitors to place at the state level in the SkillsUSA competition." But these students represented Westmoreland High School EXTREMELY well and did just that. Congratulations to each of them and a special THANK YOU to Mr. Shaw for being an outstanding member of the WHS Faculty!

 
Welcome

Welcome to Westmoreland High School, where spirit, pride, and tradition are the bywords of a school in which the entire community takes pride!
