We say goodbye to two passionate fine arts educators, Tracey and Tim Hainsworth. We appreciate what they have brought to WPS and will truly be missed. We wish them nothing but the very best as they relocate to and open a new Nord Anglia school in Shenzhen.

Our Fine Arts programs would not be where they are today without the enormous amount of work that our Fine Arts Boosters Officers have poured into our arts programs. This year was a pivotal year for our Fine Arts boosters program. Through a collaborative spirit, our booster volunteers created many opportunities for our students to grow in a variety of workshops, clinics, and extraordinary experiences. They may never know the profound effect that they may have made on a person’s life. We thank you for the gift of time. Please know that we appreciate and value your commitment to volunteering and for this we thank you and you will be greatly missed. We want to say thank you to Stephanie Cheslock (outgoing President), Mike Calvo (outgoing Vice President), Dr. Tim Cheslock (outgoing Treasurer), and Corrie Tsiokos Graham (outgoing Secretary and past President).

It is our pleasure to announce this year’s Fine Arts Boosters Board of Directors and look forward to working with all you!

Senior Fine Arts Award

Posted by Jason King at May 20, 2019 4:50AM PDT ( 0 Comments )

Congratulations to Shanthi Ramakrishna for earning this year’s Senior Fine Arts Award! Shanthi was nominated by members of the Fine Arts Faculty.

In the words of Ms. Hadley, "Shanthi is a gifted dancer, visual artist, and musician. Her growth and improvement in these disciplines are due to her dedication and perseverance. She is a risk taker, a leader, and a respected student not only in the fine arts but throughout the WPS community. I have always compared her to dance legend Martha Graham and told her she would end up President of the United Nations due to her kind and caring heart. She is a gift to WPS and I know all of us who were blessed to teach her will miss her. "

We appreciate Shanthi’s many efforts in making the WPS Fine Arts programs what they are today and wish her the very best in all of her endeavors.
