On Monday, May 19th, OperaDelaware visited WCS and performed The Three Little Pigs for our elementary school students. The students enjoyed the familiar story set to music composed by Wolfgang Mozart. From the amazing scenery to the brightly colored costumes of the pigs, the students were captivated by the opera. We are so thankful the students had the opportunity to participate in this performance!
The 7th grade life science students rolled up their sleeves and donned their lab goggles and aprons for a fun and educational dissection activity. Some were eager, some hesitant, and some squeamish, but all seventh grade students participated in the bullfrog dissection lab. The majority of students agreed that one lab period simply is not enough for a dissection lab. The most interesting moment of the day was finding the remains of a fish inside a frog’s stomach. .
International students enjoyed their annual Christmas lunch with Mrs. Galbraith, Ms. Ruan and Mrs. Pitman.
