The girls varsity soccer team won their second straight NYSPHSAA State Championship on Sunday, November 12, 2017. On Saturday the girls dominated Eldred in the semi-finals.

After gaining an early 1-0 lead, the girls found themselves tied at the end of regulation. Still tied entering the third overtime period, the Wildcats took their first possession and made it count. Travina Meeks scored the game winner on a cross from Niyah Rosado. With the win, Wheatland-Chili became the third team in Section V history to win back-to-back soccer titles.

The Environmental Club recently had a special guest speaker visit! Former T. J. Connor teacher and Environmental Club founder, Linda Morrison, visited to share information with the students about how regional birds survive in the winter. We focused on why their feet don’t freeze. The students learned about “rete mirabile” which in Latin means “wonderful net.” Look it up to find out more! After information was shared, Environmental Club members learned different bird calls too. Thank you to Mrs. Morrison for visiting and sharing with the Environmental Club.
On Thursday night, students and families came back to TJC to have some math fun. Students and their families had the opportunity to play some favorite math games in the cafeteria or the gymnasium. Every student was provided a booklet that had the directions with the games. Families also learned more about some of our electronic solutions for math such as ST Math and IXL Math. In addition, they enjoyed some “Math and Movement” games in the music room. A fun night was had by everyone
Our MS/HS skiers have once again taken to the slopes and they couldn’t have been more excited. Each year, our Ski Program, led by Mr. VerSteeg and Mr. Melville, partners with Swain Mountain to bring a truly unique experience to our students. The children love hanging with one another on the slopes and excitedly share stories the next day of shredding the trails, hitting different jumps, and racing each other - in a safe manner of course! The Ski Program is a winter tradition here at WCCSD, and we thank our Superintendent and Board of Education for their continued support.

There is a lot of action in our ELA classes. Juniors are working on a research (history and ELA) project. They have the ability to use Noodletools to document their sources or paper/ pencil. Down a grade level, the sophomores are in the midst of writing their own narrative based on Golding's style (author of Lord of the Flies). Students will then publish a "book" on Book Creator - a site for free publication. Way to go and keep up the great work.
The swim team hosted the annual senior recognition night at their home competition on Friday, January 19. The spotlight was on an amazing six seniors as they took their bows, hugged loved ones, and raced in true tradition during a “Muppet Relay.” The team has taken great pride in working each day to improve upon personal records, and it is clear that each of these seniors has led in both action and spirit. The coaches are very proud of the team’s accomplishments this season, and the turnout from parents was awesome. Kudos to seniors Corey Ingham, Brandon Krull, Julia Lodato, Calvin Nau, Katie Russell, and Sydney St. Rose-Finear.
