Wachusett Now

Superintendent McCall and Principal Bill Beando
I am pleased to announce the launching of the "Wachusett Now" television program which will be broadcast on local cable access television channels as well as linked through the WRSD website.  "Wachusett Now" will highlight the various schools throughout the District, providing community members with the opportunity to view the schools from inside and out.   I recently had the opportunity to work with the local cable access television crews on our first edition of “Wachusett Now.”  The show is scheduled to be produced on a monthly basis with our kick-off occurring sometime in the next few weeks.  I thought it important that we actually take the show on the road where we can highlight all of the great things going on in our schools and also give community members within the District the opportunity to see schools throughout the five towns.  Each show will highlight a different school for the first two-thirds of the program.  The last third of each show will be dedicated to WRHS as there is a great deal to share from such a large school.  The first program includes an interview with Principal Chris LaBreck from Chocksett Middle School and a brief tour of that building, as well as an introduction to the high school by Principal Bill Beando.  The show will be aired on the local access stations in Holden, Paxton, Rutland, and Sterling.  DVD copies of the show will be made available to Princeton residents at the town library and Thomas Prince School.  The program will also be available for streaming through the WRSD website.  I am enjoying this project and working with Sterling-Lancaster Community Television and Holden Cable TV and I am grateful to Bob Bloom, President of Sterling-Lancaster Community Television, for reaching out to me and the WRSD.
