Whittier Vo-Tech Sophomores Receive Treat for Grueling Tests

Sophomores at Whittier Regional Vocational Technical High School received a special treat Friday for getting through a series of standardized tests.

Superintendent Maureen Lynch kicked off what she is calling a “new school tradition” by surprising the students with an ice cream party to celebrate the end of their MCAS year.

“Since March, they have taken the three MCAS tests they need to pass to earn a high school diploma--English, math and biology. During seventh period, they were called down to the cafeteria for a surprise party with all of the ice cream fixings,” the school said in a statement.
