  • Middle School Battle of the Books Champions Announced!

    It’s officially an upset!.  The 6th-grade WAZzys are the champs over the 8th grade Little Einsteins!  The top two Battle of the Books teams competed against each other on May 7 after school.  The Little Einsteins (Alejandra Diaz-Gallegos, Ilana Lothes, and Maria Verduzco) gave a valiant effort but came in behind the 6th-grade team of Willow Vogelzang, Ava Nygren, and Zoe Olson. There was lots of pizza and ice cream for everyone and the championship battle was great entertainment. This was a great year for Battle of the Books and we are very proud of the hard work and diligent reading that the teams put forth.

  • Jefferson County Courthouse Job Shadow  

    Five selected 8th-graders (with an interest in pursuing a legal career) participated in a job shadow event at the Jefferson County Courthouse on Friday, April 26. Students from area middle schools were invited to participate in the special day.  Each group of students was assigned to a courthouse staff member that they followed through their workday asking questions and receiving answers to those questions. Whitewater students were assigned to a lawyer and were given tours of both the courthouse and the lawyer's office in addition to being able to sit in on several courtroom cases. They had a question & answer lunch with a Judge and in the afternoon participated in two mock trial scenarios where they role-played different participants in the mock trials. Participating students were then required to write an essay about the experience which will be on display at the Jefferson Co. Courthouse as they celebrate Law Day.
