On Friday, Nov. 5, Wayland High Schools senior class, Connect, hosted its first ever Pumpkin Smash. Students gathered during their lunches in the visitor parking lot ready to demolish some pumpkins. “I think the next class should host another Pumpkin Smash next year since it was a positive environment and helped students with stress.” junior Billy Burke said.

Due to the abnormally high amount of PFAS in Wayland’s water, students are unable to use the normal water fountains at school. As a result, piles of the water bottles overflow from the recycling bins outside of Wayland High School’s fitness room, causing some students and staff to feel concerned about the amount of single-use plastic being used. “If we could all just be personally responsible for the number of single-use water bottles we’re using, I think that would help enormously,” Wayland High School Principal Allyson Mizoguchi said. “Every person matters in this situation, just like with every environmental issue.”

The stress students have been dealing with has been affecting students physical and mental health. “I havent found a permanent way to deal with the stress from school and as things progress, I find myself needing to find that permanent solution soon, sophomore Anjali Tandon said. “Some teachers dont have any regard for the stress that students are under, completely forgetting that students have other classes.”

Wayland High Schools varsity swim team stands together after the announcement of the boys team’s state and sectional meet win in Feb. 2020. Since then, WHSs swimming and diving teams have not competed in-person at a state or sectional meet due to the pandemic, and they participated in virtual events throughout the last season. “We feel confident that we’ll have them ready regardless of what the state tells us to do or when we can do it,” swim and dive coach Michael Foley said. “We’re going to be prepared.”

This year, the Wayland High School hockey team opted to participate in a JV league rather than the usual varsity league. The biggest motivating factor behind this decision is the lack of upperclassmen on the team, with roughly half the team being freshmen. “It’s just such a young team, so the decision was made to cancel all of our varsity level hockey games in the DCL, and we entered into a JV level league running out of the Marlborough rink,” junior Ryan Desmond said.
