At WWS we mark the day with all sorts of games and activities of strength, skill, and courage, which have been set up by the seniors and the 6th graders. The celebration begins at 12:30 p.m. on the blacktop. We begin with a dragon pageant, performed by 9th graders, and a sword dance performed by the 7th graders. This year, Mr. Elfstrom will set up his forge and become a blacksmith for the afternoon. The day will commence with a four-way tug of war on the lower field.
All WWS families are invited to observe the celebration, but activities are intended for our students in grades 1-12 only, and younger siblings should stay with their parents. LESS
