As we enter the winter sports season, let us [take a moment to also acknowledge] the academic successes and accomplishments of the Waterville Senior High School students and staff. Recall the data Mr. Reiter recently shared with us recently on our students test scores and how well they/we are doing compared to surrounding schools. Celebrate the incredible accomplishments of the Science Olympiad team over the past two decades. If academics were celebrated in this country on the same level with which we celebrate sports, the Science Olympiad Team would have made the national news.
Our Math team has won the first two meets of the season and yesterday [Dec 4] we competed in meet 3 held at Messalonskee High School. Lawrence HS to fourth place with 142 points, Skowhegan HS took third place with 159 points, Messalonskee HS took second place with 182 points and WSHS took first place with an incredible 258 points! Please understand that this score has not been seen in Central Maine Inland Division for as long as anyone can remember. This score places us on par with the elite math teams in the state: Bangor HS who sends 4 teams to each meet and can choose their top 10 from 50 students, Cape Elizabeth HS who has 3 paid math team coaches, and the private and semi-private HS in the state whose teams are comprised mostly of students from other countries who do nothing else but math.
Ursula was second highest scorer at the meet with 13 correct out of 15. She is the 23 highest scorer in the state and this may move her even higher. When the results from around the state are in next week, I'll email an update.
These math team students scored the way they did because they are being taught a quality curriculum across the board by gifted, passionate teachers. It is the success these students have in all their classes that make them a formidable team. It is their ability to read critically, analyze thoroughly, think outside the box and love for learning that all of you have instilled in them that make them who they are now and who they will become later in life. You all should celebrate this accomplishment with them and if you see any of the students listed below in class or in the hallways, give them a high five for a job well done and representing our school with pride.

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!"
