Welcome back, students!

While there is still a noticeable chill in the air, the snow has begun to melt – and we all know what that means…

It’s time for Spring Dance Ensemble AUDITIONS!

Starting tomorrow afternoon at 3:30 in the Dance Studio, we will begin the process of finding our group of performers to light up the Williston stage in May. I want to invite you to join us for the remainder of the week in the afternoon if you wish to be considered. Movement auditions will be held in the form of a technique class. When participating in a movement class, please wear form-fitting movement clothing that facilitates free range of motion. All meetings will take place in the Dance studio, Reed Center. The schedule for the week is as follows:

Tuesday, March 24th: Informational Meeting, 3:30 – 5:00pm (no need to change clothing) All of your questions will be answered.

Live Streaming Semi-Finals

The Williston Northampton Wildcats are excited to host two playoff games on campus today: boys basketball and girls hockey.

You can find the today’s tournament schedule and more information online here.

The boys basketball team will take on Tabor Academy at home at 1:00 p.m.

The girls hockey team will face St. Paul’s at home at 3:00 p.m.

Knowing that many of our families would like to watch the games from wherever they are, we’re trying a live stream service called High School Cube—as we did on Wednesday. This is a new service for us, and we hope it helps you share in the excitement on campus.

You can download the High School Cube app on your phone, and then follow the Williston Northampton Live Stream Channel. Please note: there are two Williston Northampton channels, but only the Williston Northampton Live Stream Channel will be showing the games as they are played.

Go, Wildcats!
