Students from WHE participated in a plein air event today. Plein Air is a French term for , " the act of painting outdoors where the painter reproduces the beauty surrounding them. " ( wikipedia) They traveled to Edgerton Park with art teacher, Amy McCarthy, and took many photos of the beautiful gardens. Students then had a chance to sit down and decide what they would paint. They came away with many beautiful works of art.

On Friday April 6, 2018, students performed in the one-act musical, Once on This Island. The play and lyrics were written by Lynn Ahrens and music was by Stephen Flaherty. Our production was directed by Lynne Patnode. Eric Carson served as Technical Director . Amy McCarthy acted as the Set Designer and Costume Designer. Nicole Flaherty and Nancy Barbosa were prop masters and stage crew. It was quite evident that staff and students had been working for months to put the production together. A terrific time was had by all !
