“Even When WEOF; We On!” That team name summed up the incredible energy of the 35 teams (350 people!) that participated in WEOF’s 3rd Annual Trivia Night on March 11th. The sold-out fundraiser included 10 rounds of very difficult, fast-paced trivia along with a buffet dinner, silent auction and raffles. Staff from every school, parents, friends and community members enjoyed socializing, competing against each other and dancing at the end of the event. VIEW PHOTO ALBUM
Demonstrating how smart Wissahickon teachers are, the high school team, “9 by 18:, was victorious, claiming a “Know It All” t-shirt and crown. “9 by 18” was represented by WHS staff members Marissa Samit, Cindy Pronko and Lynn Marta. Second place was a tie between parent team “Not Just Pretty Faces” and team “Even When WEOF, We On” represented by WHS staff members Brittney Gambone, Corina Nocero, Shelley Uthgenannt, Devin Coen, Carolyn Dwyer, Meredith Falatek, and Melissa Shahbazi.
