WCHS Sophomore, Daryann Pryor, Designs Projects on Mobile Makerspace while in Vanderbilt Children's Hospital

For two weeks each year, high school sophomore Daryann Pryor, goes to Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt for a tune-up. She started visiting the hospital when she was 6 after she was first diagnosed with cystic fibrosis, a chronic lung disease.

But this visit is different because Pryor has something new and exciting in her room. For the duration of her stay, she can design projects on something called a Mobile Makerspace — the first one to ever be in a children’s hospital.

Pryor, who is 16, is already taking nursing classes at Webster County High School in Kentucky. By the end of the year, she will be certified in CPR. She says eventually she would like to be a nurse at Vanderbilt because she has always been inspired by the people who have helped her.

Physics Class Participates in "Hour of Code" Event

Mrs. Babbs' Physics Class participated in an "Hour of Code" event recently in the WCHS Media Center. The "Hour of Code" is a global movement reaching millions of students of all ages in 180+ countries.  The goal is for tens of millions of students to try an Hour of Code during December 8-14, 2014, in celebration of Computer Science Education Week. Students learn to code computer programs of their choice through one hour tutorials that are available in over 30 languages. Learning Computer Science helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity as well as provide a foundation for a 21st century career path.

WC "All Day, Every Day" Attendance Initiative

A recent study shows that students who miss more school than their peers consistently score lower on standardized tests, regardless of their age, demographic group or where they live. Improving student attendance is an essential, cost-effective but often overlooked strategy for school improvement, closing achievement gaps and ensuring all our students are on-track to learn and succeed.
