If you haven't noticed, Winter is here!  Maine is not the only place with snow and ice.  Here are a few important tips shared from Allegheny College in snowy Pennsylvania. 
Wear boots or overshoes with grip soles such as rubber and neoprene composite. Slick leather or plastic soles on shoes will definitely increase the risk of slipping.
When getting out of your vehicle, look down at the surface. If it’s coated with ice you might want to park in a different place....
Don’t step on uneven surfaces. Avoid curbs with ice on them.
Place your full attention on walking. Digging in your pocketbook or backpack while walking on ice is dangerous.
If you know you are going to slip, try to reduce your potential injury when falling.
Roll with the fall. Try to twist and roll backwards, rather than falling forward.
Relax as much as possible when you begin to fall.
Toss the load you are carrying. Protect yourself instead of the objects being carried.

Math Team Back on Track  The Waterville Senior High School Math team scored an impressive 130 points during the recent math meet at Messalonskee High School. This score was enough to capture second place and is a terrific achievement given the fact that 8 out of the 10 team members are newcomers. The team is in a rebuilding season as we lost 10 seniors from last years team. The top four scorers from WSHS were: Max Burger-Roy, Jordan Huard and newcomers Louisa Nyhus and Tanner Matteson.

Recommended Supply List for 2014 - 2015 School Year

Can you help?

We have high school students in need of basic school supplies and our reserve is low.  We could use things like 3-ring binders, filler paper, dividers, pens, pencils, pocket folders. etc.  Even gently used binders and folders would be appreciated!  Please drop off donations in the guidance office.  Thank you!"


*Correction: Student Population as of 4/28/14 was 588 providing a 13:1 Student/Teacher ratio.

For the third year in a row, Waterville High School has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a medalist school (Bronze 2012, Silver 2013, & Bronze 2014).  U.S. News starts by analyzing over 31,000 public high schools in the United States and reduces that down to their final list of schools with a "high enough 12th-grade enrollment and sufficient data from the 2011-2012 school year to be eligible for the rankings."  We are proud of our selection again this year, as it confirms what we already know--Waterville High has great students and a dedicated faculty and staff.
