The Sudbury-Wayland-Lincoln Domestic Violence Roundtable Provided Valentine Gift Bags to Survivors of Domestic Violence

On Tuesday, February 11, members of the Sudbury-Wayland-Lincoln Domestic Violence Roundtable and community members gathered at the Wayland Public Safety Building to fill Valentine gift bags for clients of REACH Beyond Domestic Violence, The Second Step, and Voices Against Violence. Approximately 75 gift bags, decorated by students at Sudbury Extended Day were filled and donated to the three organizations. The Roundtable would like to thank Roundtable members, the parents and staff of Sudbury Extended Day, Wayland Creative Preschool, and members of our three local communities for their generous donations.

Three-peat for Wayland boys swimming

Boston Herald 2/10/20: Three-peat for Wayland boys swimming. With only a handful of events remaining, the hill appeared too steep. At that moment, it appeared Wayland’s dominant run was in severe jeopardy. Yet, no matter how bleak things appeared, or how treacherous the road ahead seemed, the Warriors never quit Sunday night. Sam Cahaly brought his team within reach with a second-place finish in the diving competition, and junior Jiming Xu notched a massive victory in the 100-yard breaststroke event late, rallying Wayland’s boys swimming program from a 60-point deficit to capture its third straight North sectional title at MIT.

The next closest team behind the Warriors and Eagles was Newton South (168).

Community theaters have responded by challenging their audiences with works involving complex themes and strengthening their already strong local ties.

Wayland Nordic skiing not your average program

Boston Globe 2/8/20: Wayland Nordic skiing not your average program. It’s a common ritual for every Nordic skier — wax your skis before you race. Waxing keeps the bottom of the skis slick enough to glide through snow on race day. The Nordic team at Wayland High has found a way to make the chore fun: The Warriors host “waxing parties” — group sessions at a team member’s house to do the deed.
