Destination Imagination Team Advances to State Tournament

On March 17, the WHS Destination Imagination (DI) team (Smaranda Costiner, Willow Stoner, Jarius Kidd, Eric Yu, and Robbin Ma) competed in the regional Destination Imagination Tournament along with teams from nearby elementary, middle, and high schools. Our team created and built a quadcopter and wrote and performed a medieval melodrama featuring a knight, a princess, and a dragon—all complemented by beautifully crafted costumes and a Spenserian sonnet in iambic pentameter. They shocked everyone, most of all themselves, by successfully flying their quadcopter for the first time during their performance! Our team came in first place in their challenge and age level, so they are moving on to the DI State Tournament, on Saturday, March 30 at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. The WHS community is warmly invited to come watch their performance at States! More info to follow. Congratulations, to the team for all of their hard work and their awesome performance!

10th Graders Shine in ‘The Monster in the Labyrinth’

In a short introduction to the 10th grade play, ‘The Monster in the Labyrinth’, Teacher/Director Joseph O’Donnell described the tenth graders as ‘troopers’ for he asked a lot from them in this production. It was clear to all members of the rapt audience on Friday evening that the tenth graders met his expectations and more. With a space, yet beautiful backdrop, various forms of puppetry and spot on acting T’nysha Peete, Alex Topper, Ben Ruigomez, Julie Oliveira, Gero Grunberger and Houston Watkins performed the ancient bronze age story of Theseus and the Minotaur for families, friends and community members. At Waldorf High School, we believe that the richness of the curriculum and the opportunity to learn with our senses and abilities enable us to set higher goals. Thank you to all who helped bring both this goal and this magnificent production to fruition.
