Last year, Middle School Dean of Students Eric Beck introduced a new initiative in the Middle School: Voices of a Generation. The idea is to have students get up in front of their peers at assemblies and speak about topics that are important to them, whether it's current events taking place in our world, or something more specific to their WIS experience.

The most recent speaker was Elektra G., a Grade 6 student, who spoke about gun violence in the United States. Click here to read her essay.

One of the newest clubs offered to Upper School students this year was the Global Health Club. Read on to learn about the work they did this year leading up to a week-long service trip to Peru during Spring Break, where the students spent time volunteering in a local community.

The following essay was written by one of our Grade 5 students, Derin. After his first experience of playing fantasy football, he has some great insights that can be applied to almost any situation.

Recently, some Grade 10 Spanish students had the opportunity to take a trip to the Takoma Radio (WODW-LP) station in Takoma Park, MD. They were guests of Marika Partridge, a former WIS parent, who works at the station.
