White Mountains Regional High School just completed its fourth summer of Futures Camps. Principal Mike Curtis and camp coordinator Lisa Brooks hosted over 125 campers who participated in 18 individual camps. Students in grades 6 through 8 learned how to weld, created short films, spoke Spanish, toured the dentist office, solved crimes, created delicious meals from scratch, participated in lifetime fitness activities, and played music.
For four weeks this summer, students had the opportunity to attend Summer School to earn missed credits or for enrichment. Students in grades 9-12 participated in courses of study in the areas of Mathematics, Science, and Humanities. Students in grades 6-8 engaged in enrichment activities including STEM, Arts, and PE.
District Facilities Director, Rob Scott is overseeing the high school bathroom renovation. Contractors are in the process of removing the existing “boys” and “girls” bathrooms that have served White Mountains well for the last 50 years and will be installing 9 individual bathrooms for the school community to use. The boy’s locker room is getting a much needed makeover. Say goodbye to the “red lockers” and the boys’ locker room will also receive three new individual showers.
