WHS Athletics Sign-up

As a reminder, our sports registration is online for the school year using FamilyID.  This is an easy to use program allowing athletes to complete necessary forms online.  Fall sport athletes can use the “Athletics” link on the main page of our WHS website to access the FamilyID link.  Winter and Spring sports will be available closer to their seasons.  Based on the support of our Watertown community, the Pay to Participate Fee this school year was decreased to $100 with a family max of $200.  This has been corrected online for the upcoming school year.  If you have any questions, please contact our Athletic Director Paul Catuccio. 

WHS Welcome Back

We are excited to welcome everyone back for the upcoming school year.  As a reminder, our freshmen orientation will continue to be on the first day of school this year.  All freshmen students will start on Thursday, August 31st for orientation facilitated by our Watertown High School LINK crew.  Busses will begin normal routes on August 31st for freshmen who need transportation.  We will serve lunch, but students are welcome to bring their own.  Freshmen students will then run a mock schedule for their classes to find the rooms and meet their teachers.  All students will return on Friday, September 1st for the first regular day of school.  We will run a normal Monday schedule on September 1st so that students will be able to meet all of their teachers.

Please note that based on student and staff feedback, we have added Homeroom to the daily schedules on Tuesday, Thursday, and Fridays.  This should appear on students’ schedules in PowerSchool.  This updated daily schedule can be found on our website.  Schedules have been available in PowerSchool throughout the summer, we encourage all students to review their schedules before school begins in case any changes were made.

Watertown High School Pizza Tasting Results

On Wednesday February 15th we held a Pizza Taste Testing to decide which Pizza the WHS Cafeteria would serve as their daily Pizza. The choices were between Big Daddy’s & Pizzeria Uno.

Two classes from each grade were selected to participate in the test. It was a blind Taste Test where each student rated each pizza they tasted, then they picked the pizza that they liked the best. There were about 100 students who participated and I would like to Thank those students for helping us with this decision. It was great to work directly with the students of WHS and to give them a say in the choice of the Pizza we will be serving in the cafeteria.

The winning Pizza was the Pizzeria Uno by a 2 to 1 margin and it will be the new Daily Pizza option in the WHS Cafeteria. The new pizza will be available towards the end of next week. We will post signs on the Menu Board and the Pizza Station. There will be a morning announcement the day we will begin serving our new pizza and I will post it on my Twitter account ChefDave@WHS. Please follow me on Twitter because I also tweet all the daily specials for the café so it is a good way to keep up to date on all the things happening in the WHS Café.

I want to Thank everyone that helped us with this decision. I think this is a great way to give the students of WHS a voice regarding the food that we serve at WHS. Please feel free to send me any comments or suggestions you have on our Food Service Program.

WHS Wednesday February 22nd

We wanted to clarify a couple of things regarding the schedule for tomorrow, Wednesday February 22nd at Watertown High School.  All students have a full day tomorrow.  Seniors who already have Wednesday Late Arrival or Early Dismissal Privilege should check in or out as they normally do.  Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors will be taking either a practice CAPT or SAT and working on other planned SSP activities.  Students will also begin working on registration for the 2017-2018 school year by reviewing recommendations and meeting with their Guidance Counselors.  These are important activities that are timed throughout the day that will allow us to prepare for the upcoming school-wide state exam day and begin registration for next year while minimizing time out of current classes.  Seniors will be participating in various post-secondary workshops and working on their Capstone.  Buses will be running on a normal schedule and all students are expected to be in school all day.  We hope everyone had a great break and we look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!
