Wamogo Regional High School

October 10, 2017

Message from the Principal

Dear Wamogo Families and Friends,

I am anticipating an eventful and fun-filled Homecoming Week. Complete details of all events are provided in the section below. It is our intention that this week of activities and friendly competition will foster a sense of school pride in students and staff.


Reminder: PSAT's will occur tomorrow morning, October 11 for grades 9 through 11. Please make every effort to ensure that your child arrives to school on time. Some families have expressed concerns regarding the PSAT test date falling within the same week as Homecoming, where games are scheduled during the evening. While I agree that the timing is not ideal, we are unable to adjust the PSAT testing date since it is set by College Board. However, we will be mindful in future years to ensure that Homecoming Week does not occur during PSAT testing.


I would like to invite parents for light refreshments and casual conversation at our first Parent Coffee Hour on Thursday, October 12. The event runs from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. in the Library Media Center. All are welcome and I look forward to seeing you there.


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

Sincerely,

Sabin Loveland, Principal

Wamogo Homecoming/ School Spirit Week October 10 - 13

Throughout the week, grades nine through twelve will compete against each other to win points based upon costume contests. The winning grade will receive the prize of one outdoor lunch/WIT "recess" during a season of their choosing. Costumes will be judged during lunch waves, with the first, second and third best competitors receiving 300, 200 and 100 points respectively. The week of competition will culminate in a pep rally, wherein students from each grade participate in fun "minute to win it" style games.
