  • Western Wayne Annual Art Show a SuccessWestern Wayne Annual Art Show a SuccessMay 22, 2024Back, standing, from left: Melinda Kopcza, Kiersten McDonald, and Jocilyn Brungard. Kneeling from left: Aurora Morris, Carly Schott, Lila Rusin, and Peyton Cook. Western Wayne hosted their annual spring Art Show on Saturday, May 11, for the community. The show featured art from students in grades 8 through 12 and art from graduating seniors. In addition, high school students in the creative writing class also had their written pieces displayed in an artistic manner. The following list of seven seniors exhibited their portfolios at the art show: Melinda Kopcza, Kiersten McDonald, Jocilyn Brungard, Aurora Morris, Carly Schott, Lila Rusin, and Peyton Cook. Their displays represented an accumulation of up to four years of artwork. Senior Melinda Kopcza’s display centered around fantasy.“My biggest inspiration is Alice in Wonderland. I love art because it brings my dreams of being a Disney princess to life, as well as my dream to live in a fantasy world,” Melinda said. She is also especially glad that her family enjoys her artwork.Melinda plans to attend Millersville University to study psychology and criminology or social work.Fellow senior Kiersten McDonald’s display had a dreamscape theme. “I picked this theme because it represents loss of identity and always wanting to get away. The majority of my art follows the same theme of space, dreams, and illusions,” Kiersten said. She is also especially proud of having won first and second place in the same category of mixed media at the Western Wayne Art Show her sophomore year.Kiersten plans to attend Millersville University as well with her best friend Melinda where she plans to study anthropology in the hope of becoming a forensic anthropologist, as well as continuing art as a hobby.Another featured artist is Jocilyn Brungard who centered her display around skeletal animals. “I chose this theme because my first pen and ink was a skeleton crow, and it’s a piece of artwork that has stuck with me ever since. Music greatly influences my art as well and is the inspiration for some of my other works of art,” Jocilyn said.Jocilyn’s favorite artists include Vincent Van Gogh and Florence and the Machine.Although Jocilyn’s future plans are undecided, she is interested in joining the Air Force and would like to continue art in her future as well.Another featured artist is Aurora Morris who created her art in mostly a whimsical style. Her favorite medium is colored pencils.“I think the art I create looks like a person would see it in some odd planet or alternate reality. I also love to create 3D mixed media art, using wire as one of my favorite things to add to my sculptures,” Aurora said.In her free time, Aurora loves to read and write poetry.She plans to attend Mercyhurst University to earn a degree in art education and a minor in special education.Fellow senior Carly Schott’s display has a focus on nature.“The state of our environment has always been important to me, and is an issue I hope to bring to light through my artwork,” Carly said. “In addition, art has given me confidence and purpose. To me, creating art is a way for me to express myself. As a typically shy and quiet person, my artwork has become an outlet for me to share my thoughts, feeling, and personality with others while still being able to hide behind a page.”Carly is most proud of how much she has improved since she began drawing.After high school, she plans to pursue a career in the art field.Another featured artist is Lila Rusin whose work is done primarily in black and white, which she feels simplifies her pieces, putting more of a focus on her compositions. Her biggest inspiration is Japanese artist Junji Ito, who has influenced some of her art style and ideas.“Through my art, I want to convey the struggles and stereotypes of being a woman in today’s society. I want to use art to speak against gender norms created by society,” Lila explained.Lila’s hobbies include drawing, digitally and traditionally, writing and playing video games. Her future plans include going to a college to pursue a writing career.Finally, Peyton Cook’s senior display was inspired by her development as an artist in scrapbook form. “I wanted to convey to my viewers how I have grown as an artist, and the phases of my life displayed through my art at the time. Through my display, I want to give the message of how important pushing myself as a creator is,” Peyton said.Peyton is mostly inspired by her father, who always enjoyed doing crafts and new projects with her and her brother as kids.While Peyton isn’t pursuing a career in the art field, she plans to attend Penn State Scranton for nursing and continue to create art as a stress reliever and an expression of her new chapter in life after high school.Many of the seniors plan to do as Peyton is and pursue art as a hobby if it is not part of their chosen career field. They are grateful for the experiences they had at Western Wayne in their art classes.The District wishes them the best on their future endeavors and congratulates the Art Department on another successful Art Show.

  • RDW’s Kindness Club creates “Kind Westie”RDW’s Kindness Club creates “Kind Westie”May 20, 2024RDW’s Kindness Club students came up with a neat project to end the year. A spin-off of “Flat Stanley,” students created a character called “Kind Westie” who has been traveling to different classrooms. When he arrives, students read a letter from Westie which explains that he is watching to see if they do kind things for one another. When they do, they are allowed to take a picture with Westie. Since launching the project last week, the Kindness Club has received numerous pictures of Westie with kind students. They can’t wait to see how many more photos they get and are excited about the impact that his project is having.Kindness Club members, left to right: Aaedyn Hillemann, Rachel Enslin, Jasmine Piacentino, Cami French, Aubrey Hendricks, and Jakob Vinton [...]

  • Western Wayne Presents at Community Connections to Our Watershed ForumWestern Wayne Presents at Community Connections to Our Watershed ForumMay 21, 2024From left, standing: Abigail Bell, Madelyn McClure, and Ryleigh Mahon. From left, kneeling:  Audrey Agnello and Sophia Ochlan. From left:  Dr. Mark Nebzydoski, Audrey Agnello, Abigail Bell, Madelyn McClure, and Sophia Ochlan. Community Connections to Our Watershed began over twenty years ago. Each year the education staff from Lackawanna and Nescopeck State Parks coordinate groups of five students and one teacher from local schools to participate in this environmental forum. Learners visit their local parks and other public lands while meeting conservation professionals doing the unending work to ensure our communities have equitable access to the clean waters that are essential for us and our ecosystems to survive and thrive.  An overview of the program with information, pictures, and highlights from the field trips can be found at https://tinyurl.com/CCTW2024 The Lackawanna County Teams included: Carbondale, Forest City, Lackawanna Trail, Lakeland, Mountain View, Old Forge, Riverside, Western Wayne, and Wayne Highlands.  The Luzerne County Teams included: Crestwood, Hanover, HAAS, HACC, Hazleton, Northwest, Tunkhannock, and Wyoming Area. This year Western Wayne students attended field trips to Keystone College, the Old Forge borehole, Lackawanna College Environmental Education Center, Sweeney’s Beach in Scranton, and Frances Slocum State Park.  On these excursions students learned about what makes a healthy watershed, how we monitor a watershed, and finally solutions being made to keep our watershed clean. On May 7, 2024 these trips culminated in a student presentation banquet at Montage Mountain.  Western Wayne presented their project titled, “Little Fish, Big World to the other participating schools.  The students used what they learned on their field trips to create a video project with interactive questions that will be used for future classes of Western Wayne High School.  The project can be found at https://tinyurl.com/Little-Fish-Big-World             These trips and experiences were made possible by Pennsylvania American Water Company, Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR), and The Watershed Education Program designed by DCNR.
