Fine Arts Awards Night

Friday, June 8
7:00 PM- 10:30 pm
Longfellow Club, Natick

It’s time to honor the best and the brightest in WHS Arts and time to let the kids kick back and have a little fun.  Here’s what we’re planning for this year:

7:00-8:00 pm: Awards Ceremony and Fine Arts jackets presented – parents and students
8:00-10:30 pm: Fine Arts Night pool and pizza party – students only

Bring a chair or sit on the floor for the awards ceremony – there’s plenty of room for everyone!

Parents, we could use your help as chaperones. Contact us  if you’re interested.

Students should bring a bathing suit, towel, and $5 for pizza. Also, bring food based on the first letter of your last name:
A-G: Beverages
H-L: Popcorn, cheese doodles or chips, pretzels, dips, or hummus & pita
M-R: Veggies or fruit
S-Z: Dessert
Note: The party is for WHS students only – no siblings allowed in the pool. Lifeguards will be on duty.

So bring the family and bring plenty of Wayland pride as we get ready to wrap up the year by celebrating the arts at Longfellow!

Questions? Just contact us.

Congratulations to student musicians!

Fine Arts Jackets

Did you know…

Fine arts students at WHS can earn a fine arts jacket by participating in fine arts classes and groups both in and outside of school? The Creative Arts Parent Association sponsors these jackets in collaboration with the faculty for students who go above and beyond in the fine arts. For more information, see Fine Arts Jackets.
