The WTC Production of “The Wizard of Oz” Sparkles on Opening Night!

Directed and choreographed by Wheatley graduate Caitlin Calio (Class of 2014), the production included many of our younger students from North Side School.

After a Back and Forth Competition, the Class of 2019 Emerges Victorious in #Showdown2019

The culmination of Wheatley’s Showdown week is the Friday Night Finale. This finale took place last night! Beginning at 6:45 pm and continuing through 10:16 pm, grades competed against each other in a wide variety of activities. The activities included:

  • Chess
  • Myers Math Problem
  • Badminton
  • Sneaker relay race
  • Foul shooting
  • Egg and Spoon Race (faculty competition)
  • Volleyball
  • Scooter Polo
  • Over-Under Ball Pass
  • Pyramid Cup Stacking
  • Target Rock

Over 500 students attended the night’s activities. The “cost” of admission to the evening was a donation item for the Mary Brennan INN (this was one of the competitions). Each class was assigned a category, so a wide variety of soups, canned goods, cereals, pasta, rice and beans was collected. Over 6,300 items were collected for the donation!

After an intense evening of competition, the Class of 2019 emerged as the winners of Showdown2019!

A huge thank you to our Class Advisors, our PE faculty, our custodians and our Wheatley PTO for all the work they did in order to help us through the week of Showdown2019! Thank you to ALL of the students for a wonderful week of spirited competition!
