High School's "Back To School Bash" attracts large crowd

North Rose-Wolcott High School’s parking lot was packed for its first-ever “Back to School Bash” on Wednesday, August 28 as families and staff members gathered to celebrate the start of the school year.


The event was planned by NRW High School staff members, who organized and supervised a free dinner, outdoor games, and other activities like face-painting. NRW High School Principal Brian Read credited teachers Amy Wiktorowicz and Nick Wojieck for the great idea.


“I want to give a special thanks to Amy Wiktorowicz and Nick Wojieck for having the vision for this event,” said Read.  “Without a doubt, this has been the most successful opening the high school has had since I’ve been here. It was the perfect way to start the year, and I can’t wait for what’s to come.”


Megan Paliotti, Assistant Superintendent for Instruction and School Improvement, echoed Read’s sentiments.


“Thank you to everyone who helped out with this event,” Paliotti said. “It was a huge turnout, and there was a true sense of community there.”


During the “Back to School Bash,” the high school also hosted seventh grade orientation, freshman orientation, and an athletic informational meeting. Students and parents had the opportunity to meet staff members and ask questions.


Students and staff alike noted that they were looking forward to the start of the school year.
