Meet Our Dungeons & Dragons Storytellers

What is D & D

" Dungeons and Dragons is a classic fantasy game. Players create their own custom characters by rolling dice and using the rule book. Players can build any character they imagine. The story tellers use the story book to guide the players on an epic adventure to rescue friends and defeat monsters. There is no board, no screen, and no end to the amount of fun you can have! "

Congratulations Robotics!

Our Robotics team competed at the Southern New England Regionals with and against 48 teams on Saturday, February 23rd in order to advance to the VEX Robotics world championships.


The students have spent the school year working together to design, build, and program a robot using VEX EDR. The teams were required to execute a game called 'Turning Point,' which is played by stacking cups on a post, by flipping caps, by stacking balls on caps, by toggling flags, by throwing balls, and by parking robots.


"Walsh Roboty McRobotFace," robot 9791C, created by Zachary Dustin, Tyler Garofalo, CJ Crocker, and Liam Donovan, is one of the five teams advancing to the Vex Robotics world championships. The championship will be held in Louisville, Kentucky in April.

No Name Calling Week

"No Name Calling Week" is organized by educators and students in order to end name calling and bullying in schools. This week is a way to spread awareness and reinforce our core values, respect and acceptance. Traditionally, "No Name Calling Week" is January 21st -25th but here at Walsh, we honored it February 11th-14th, 2019 with the GSA leading activities and discussions throughout the week.
