  • Wakefield hosts American Red Cross War Relief Game

    American Red Cross Every year, the American Red Cross of the National Capital Region have an event called Raid Cross that engages students through an interactive educational game on the fundamentals of International Humanitarian Law (IHL). The event is facilitated by local university students, creating a larger sense of community and peer support towards the learning process. This year, Wakefield High School has been chosen as the host school for the event. Participating Wakefield students will learn about challenges faced by civilians, wounded soldiers and prisoners of war in a conflict setting through a series of simulated activities. Raid Cross consists of six learning stations, during which students will step into the shoes of military decision makers, humanitarian workers, battlefield medics and othersin order to understand armed conflicts through different perspectives and the laws relevant to various situations. Each station activity is followed by a debrief session of key learning elements.  For more information on this event, please contact our Red Cross Club Sponsor, Ms. Verlese Gaither.

  • Are you a DREAMer?  ¿Eres un DREAMer?

    Paying for college is tough, especially for undocumented students. The US Government does not allow undocumented students to receive any federal financial aid. Furthermore, most states also do not allow undocumented students access to taxpayer-funded aid (however, some states do! See an official list of these states here). Here are some scholarships crafted specilfically for undocumented youth trying to finance their education.
