Annual open house at Whittier Tech Sunday

HAVERHILL — Whittier Regional Vocational Technical High School in Haverhill will hold its annual open house on Sunday, Nov. 4, from 1 to 4 p.m. for prospective students and their parents within the Whittier District.

Prospective students are invited to see if a vocational-technical education is the choice for them. Whittier student guides will lead tours of the school’s 19 vocational-technical areas, where instructors and students will be available to answer questions.

In preparation for the open house, masonry students have been busy fitting a slab of granite on the counter of an outdoor kitchen they built in the school lobby, graphics and design students have been cranking out programs, posters and fliers; and culinary students have been perfecting their pasta recipe.

On Sunday, the school lobby will be full of activity with culinary arts students carving fresh fruits and vegetables and preparing seasonal food demonstrations. The Freedom Shrine display installed by the Breakfast Exchange Club of Greater Haverhill, which features reproductions of documents from American history, will be part of a social studies display. Health and wellness and world languages will also host interactive displays, and 92.5 The River radio station will have a booth featuring DJ AJ Crozby, who will give away CDs, concert tickets and a chance to produce a show at The River’s studios.

Other scheduled events include greetings from Superintendent William DeRosa, 1:30 to 2 p.m. and 2:30 to 3 p.m.; Title I informational session, 2 p.m.; sports informational meeting, 3 p.m.; choral performance by The Whittier Players, 2:30 p.m.; and overviewing of applying to Whittier, 1 to 4 p.m.

The first edition of the school newspaper, Technically Speaking, also will be published Sunday and delivered to open house attendees. Students and their parents can also tune into Whittier’s radio station at 89.3 FM and hear the open house show produced by journalism students.

For more information on the event, call Whittier at 978-373-4101.
