College admissions season is in full swing with colleges visiting WFS virtually and in person nearly every day.
Josh Tyler, a representative from Bard College, was holding a virtual visit with WFS students when his office had an unannounced fire drill two minutes into the meeting. Josh grabbed his phone and laptop and held the visit outside with our students. The pandemic has certainly made us adaptable to rolling with whatever is thrown our way. Kudos to Josh for still leading a wonderful and engaging college visit.
Paulo Machado, chair of the visual arts department, recently had a painting on display in the WFS gallery, which was part of a larger body of paintings that use wide uninterrupted brushstrokes on top of darker areas of color as metaphors for conscious attempts to heal.
To recognize National Stress Awareness Day today, the QuakerCares Committee was in the Java Nook asking students to fill out a helpful stress tip or positive thought, which will then be displayed for the community.
