Activities for the 2017-18 Academic Year

Some families choose to join WMHS and attend only occasional field trips and social events.  That's fine with us.  These families RSVP for the events that interest them as they see them posted on Shutterfly or Facebook.  Other families enroll in our co-op classes and clubs and attend them regularly. 

 

WMHS Co-op classes: 


WMHS runs co-op classes for students aged 13 and up.  For more info about our co-op please visit our "Co-op Classes" page. 


WORKSHOPS:


WMHS hosts occasional workshops on various topics.   Some of the workshops will be educational, some will include an artistic endeavor, some are just for fun.   All of them are for teens age 13+.  About a month before the scheduled workshop, we'll post the details about the upcoming workshop and info about how to RSVP for it.  Sign up for the workshops you are interested in--there is no need to come to all of them (unless you really want to!)

Past workshops have included: Hands-on Science Labs, Painting and other Art Projects, Screen Printing, Etiquette and Social Communication, Computer and Tech workshops, Soldering workshop and MORE. 

Field Trips and Social Events:


We are planning many awesome field trips and social events for the 2017-18 year.  We'll be posting info about those events on our Shutterfly and Facebook pages. We usually post info about 4-6 weeks before each event.  


Events planned for fall 2017 include:  Escape Room, Halloween Party and Live Action CLUE game, Mountain Adventures at Roundtop, Whispering Rise Farm and Animal Sanctuary, tour of the Baltimore County Crime Lab, BMore 3D printing, Agricultural Center for the Bees, Wolf Sanctuary, Hospital Lab Tour, Legends of the Fog, Visionary Arts Museum, Poe Evermore and MORE! 


Some of our past events have included: Flashlight Corn Maze, Sci Tech Science lab field trip, DC field trip to the Smithsonian museums, Forensics lab at the National Museum of Medicine and Health, Snow Tubing, Sandy Spring Adventure Park, River Tubing, Paddle boarding, Behind-the-Scenes Tour of the Aquarium, Animal Behavior Lab at the Zoo, Mardi Gras Mystery Party and MORE!  


Teen Scene Social Events


These will be relaxed, drop-off events for teens only!  Bowling, movies, laser tag, etc. We are recruiting members to plan these events!  Please email us if you are able to help. 

 
 

Online Clubs and Classes


Last semester we experimented with an online Digital Photography Club.  It worked well for some of the students and we're considering adding additional online social and academic clubs in the future.  We'd love to hear your ideas for this!
