Winter Solstice: A Gift of Love by Carolyn Riker

Comfort & Joy

Dear Mountaineers,


There is a good chance that you will be reading this close to, or on, the day of the Winter Solstice -- the longest night of the year. What comes next changes everything -- in a heartbeat, we reach that pivotal point when the world begins to open up, and ever so slowly, the days get longer. We won't notice it at first, but in a month or so, the street lights turn on later and off earlier. In the meantime, surrounded by winter holiday lights, we wait.


It seems as if we have been waiting a lot this year. And while we may be divided into cohorts, we are united in the hope that the New Year to come will bring more light, warmth, and time shared within our homes, and here at WOHS.


Wishing you tidings of comfort & joy,

Mrs. Binns & Ms. Matz

3D printing is up and running in the LMC! Mrs. Binns has been working with classes and students of all levels and experience to make these 3D printed projects possible.
