Dear Watertown Faculty and Families,

 I hope this past week was filled with lots of time to relax and enjoy April break!

This mini-update is being shared early with reminders and pictures of the wonderful service and learning our faculty and students engage in everyday. It is great to have our seniors and sophomores return to WHS today for full in person learning.

 Here’s to a very productive week!
