Chess in Lower School
Waterford is excited to continue our tradition of Chess instruction in the Lower School. Class III, IV, and V students work with Kristin South, our Lower School Chess teacher, during the first months of school, and students who are interested in Chess competition are then encouraged to join our after-school competition chess program. This program attends several chess competitions throughout the year.
Beth Hammond (Class XI) presented at the Heart Failure Society of America's (HFSA) 21st annual scientific meeting in Dallas, TX on September 16-19. We are excited to have her join Waterford as a new student!
Where were you on September 11, 2001? Upper School students Tabitha Bell and Ty Cramer asked faculty to recall where they were and what they were doing when planes hit the twin towers of the World Trade Center at 8:45 a.m. in New York City. Although the events of September 11 are vividly remembered by our faculty and millions of Americans, current Waterford students have no memory of the day; our oldest students were one year of age when the attacks occurred.

Greetings Raven Robotics Supporters!
I write this after our first day of competition at the 2017 World Championship.
First: thank you all for your support and for making this experience possible for our students. It is inspiring to be here and we are grateful to have the opportunity to cap off a successful season by competing at the highest levels.
During Spring Break, fourteen Waterford juniors and seniors and three faculty members flew to Kolkata, India to take part in service with two different organizations. The majority of the service days were spent working with the Missionaries of Charity organization (founded by Mother Teresa) at two different residences for adults and children with profound mental and physical disabilities. The group also spent time at a girls’ home established to take in girls who were orphaned or cast off from their families.
