Westford Academy Concert Choir
The Westford Academy Concert Choir performed in Carnegie Hall in New York City at the end of April! They participated in workshops, master classes and clinics with Master Clinicians in the choral world. Westford Academy singers performed with choirs from all over the US and Australia in the Choirs of America Choral Convergence on Saturday April 23rd at 8:00 PM. In addition to other great choral works, the massed choir will perform a world premiere piece composed and conducted by renown choral conductor Dr. Renee Clausen.  We thank the Westford community who have supported our efforts this year including the Westford Rotary and Eastern Bank.
The WA  Math Team
The WA math team competed at the New England Competition in Canton in May. The Team competed against the 17 best large schools from Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.  The team of seniors Pranav Nanga, Alok Puranik, Karan Sarkar, juniors Amanda Li and Kartik Singh, and sophomores Justin Huang, David Qi, and Harshal Sheth earned a 3rd place finish (behind Lexington – first place and Newton South – just 3 points ahead of us for 2nd place) which is an all time best for WA.  This was due in large part by the perfect scores earned by Pranav and Alok, as well as a very strong competition by David.  It was very close heading into the team round where we only missed one question to secure our 3rd place finish.
WA Ghostwriter
The WA Ghostwriter, the student newspaper at WA, won a huge award this week at the New England Scholastic Press Association’s annual conference.  Along with many individual awards for articles and webpage design, they won a 1st place All-New England Award in Scholastic Editing and Publishing.  This is only the second time the WA publication has placed in the All-New England awards.  WA have a young group of upcoming reporters who should prove to be a force the next few years.  The Ghostwriter thanks the faculty and staff at Westford Academy for all their support!
