Student  Showcase  

Welcome to the WWPS student showcase page of the district website. On this page we will highlight the many talents of students in the WWPS. The selection of student work is sampled from all grade levels throughout the district and is a small representation of the high quality of the work done by students in the WWPS. 

Mentor Paint Night: Students and Mentors had a great night where they enjoyed dinner and then painted the night away!

Horgan Kindness Project: Horgan students are participating in a Feinstein project titled the Kindness Cafe...Share a Cup of Kindness.  Each student created a cup and the cups were then labeled with random acts of kindness.  Once a week, during lunch, a student's name from each class is called.  The students choose a cup from the display and they are encouraged to complete the act of kindness as stated.  Each student will have an opportunity to participate.  The project should take about 20 weeks from start to finish!  We should all be kind "a latte!"

The DMS Dixie Cup: The Annual Dixie Cup floor hockey tournament at Deering. We host a school wide tourney every year, and this is the 2nd year in a row where we have turned it into a fundraiser for the Matthew Denison Foundation for scholarships for deserving HS Seniors. Faculty and staff at Deering can sponsor and play for a team. We have a team of the week every Friday, where the team gets a trophy to showcase in their classroom, as well as T-shirts to decorate for their team. Winning teams get a Dixie Cup full of treats and MVP's are also given out with hockey ducks. Always a hit with the students and staff!

Grade 11 WWHS students ST and SC: In Environmental Science, students were tasked with choosing an organism to research and writing a "thank you" card to the organism for the ecosystem services it provides.  Students had to identify which category of ecosystem service the organism would fall into and explain how they benefit personally from the service.

Grade 10 WWHS Student AL: Students learned about visual texture (an Element of Art) and had to incorporate three different types of media (sharpie, watercolor, color pencils) into their drawing creating a composition that will engage the viewer. While learning about watercolor, students practiced 5 different techniques and chose one of them to incorporate into their design.
