The foyer is the heart of Westerly High School; students who pass through are reminded of the pride our school has with trophies and banners decorating the walls. The Bulldog pride is conveyed through the newly refurbished 16 by 12 foot jumbo screen on the back wall, noticeable as soon as people walk through the doors.

The big screen has always been present in the foyer but this year it has a new appearance. The reconstruction of the big screen became necessary during last school year when the computer system was damaged by a lack of proper ventilation. The system caught on fire and lead to smoke and water damage. All the damage that occurred caused the screen to be unusable.

Mr. Lamson, the head of IT at Westerly High School worked with the insurance company to refurbish the screen.

The screen has finally been renewed and Westerly High School was able to kick off the 2017-2018 school year with a working screen.

The screen is mainly for promotional purposes. It allows for students, parents and spectators to become aware of what’s happening in the community and school. It also allows students to not to showcase their work and achievements such as an exhibition and college acceptance.
The coordinator Mr. Albamonti, is the video teacher here at WHS and wishes for students to come forth, “with content to be displayed on the screen” to show spirit and inspiration to members of this school.
