Watertown High School teacher Warren Campbell’s personal finance classes took a trip to John Trumbull Primary School on May 10 to teach all second graders the importance of saving, spending, and sharing their money. Personal finance students started with a quick introduction and then read the Berenstain Bears book “Trouble With Money.” A share, save and spend box was given to each of the second graders to take home and practice the skills they learned about money from the high schoolers. The Personal finance classes did an excellent job at teaching the young students of the community ways to be smart with money.

WATERTOWN - While Watertown High School never trailed in its quarterfinal round NVL softball tournament softball game against Wolcott High School on May 22, it seemed that potential disaster was always lurking in the background. Despite having a 4-0 lead heading into the seventh inning, that was mainly due to the Warriors lacking the big hit on several occasions which might have ground down the Eagles.
