Daily Announcements from Williston Northampton

Livestream of Upcoming Events

Commencement is just days away, and we’re so excited for the Class of 2015! We’re looking forward to getting together as a community to celebrate the Academic Awards Ceremony on May 23 at 1:00 p.m., Baccalaureate on May 23 at 8:00 p.m., and Commencement on May 24 at 9:30 a.m.

Screenshot 2015-03-04 11.35.04Knowing that many of our families would like to watch the ceremonies from wherever they are, we will be using live stream service called High School Cube for both the Academic Awards Ceremony and Commencement. This is a new service for us, and we’re hopeful it helps you share in the excitement on campus.

(Due to the solemnity and reflective nature of the Baccalaureate service, that evening event will not be livestreamed.)

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 ceremonies.

We are hopeful this new service works as planned; thank you for your patience as we work to bring you live events from campus.

Donate Student Work to the Archives

Williston student Charley Nash wrote this paper in 1877.

nash paper

That’s right, 138 years ago, one year after Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone.  And the paper is still here, in the Archives, along with much other student work.

It is essential that we continue this tradition.  So . . . what academic work are you proud of?  Shouldn’t it be in the Archives?

We’d like representative examples of good student work in every subject and at every level, whether you’re a senior or in the 7th grade.  We do a lot of things at Williston, but the academic program is the most important part of it, and it is vital that we document what we do.

You can submit your work on paper or via email.  But please do .  As I might have said once or twice or a hundred times, it’s your history.

(And who was Charley Nash after he left Williston?  I have no idea.  That’s not the point!)

Spring Senior Dinner Tonight

Spring Senior Dinner is Friday, May 15, and the Class of 2015 will have its official portrait taken that evening at 5:30 p.m. in the Phillips Stevens Chapel (on the steps in good weather; in the Chapel if it’s raining). Science teacher Erin Davey will give the faculty address at dinner, which begins at 6:00 p.m. in the Birch Dining Commons. It’s sure to be a great night!

Because the Senior Dinner is happening in the Birch Dining Commons, class dinners will be held elsewhere on campus. The freshmen will meet in front of the 194 Main Street dorm; the sophomores will gather in the rear of the Athletic Center at the grassy section south of Sawyer Field; and the juniors will meet in front of Memorial Hall. If it rains, all classes will be in the Athletic Center. There will be barbeques with lawn games and other activites for the underclassmen from 5:30-7:00 p.m.
