Washington High School Christmas Light Show

WASHINGTON – Washington High School is proud to announce that the annual Christmas Light Show will be held outdoors this year for everyone to enjoy!

The light show began a few years ago in the hallways at Washington High School but has quickly outgrown the confines of the school.

The Christmas Light Show is a student-led project including students in computer science, industrial technology, band, and choir. Matt Riney’s computer science classes are coding Christmas lights in time to the music. With the help of sponsors, they purchased software to design the show. Industrial technology students are building the frames to hold the lights. Two of the songs in the show were performed by the school’s choir and band students.

“This is a great learning experience for our kids, working with each other, the design aspect, the coding aspect, the continuous innovation and improvement, and the creativity, including art in their learning,” Riney said.

The City of Washington has volunteered to install the lights between Gates 2 and 3 of Washington High School, on Bedford Road Music can be found by tuning in to channel 90.7.

The light display will be available beginning Friday, December 10th through Sunday, January 2, from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m.

Riney says the school is very blessed to have a great deal of community support and sends thanks to the following sponsors: Walmart, A & R, and Springs Valley Bank & Trust, the City of Washington, and Sodexo.
