Wapakoneta High School Board Report:

I would like to congratulate our theater department for putting on three wonderful performances of The Little Mermaid.  It is hard to put into words how impressive each person was throughout the performances.  The directors and students have been putting in countless hours of preparation since the beginning of the school year and they should be proud of what they accomplished. I would like to give a big thank you to Mrs. Nikki Barger, Mr. Zach Jung, and Mr. Daniel Landis for helping to lead our students through this successful production. 

Our robotics team competed in a competition at Van Wert this past weekend.  Our students and coaches have been giving a lot of time and effort preparing for this event. It was a lot of fun watching our kids during the competition collaborate with each other to problem solve different issues that would arise throughout the tournament.  There were 28 teams in the event and we finished in the top 4 alliance teams.  This Saturday our robotics program will be hosting their first ever Robotics Competition/Scrimmage at the high school.  This would be a great opportunity for everyone to come and see what these competitions are all about.   

We are starting a new program at Wapakoneta High School called Student Assistance Time.  This program will give students an additional opportunity to achieve higher academic levels.  This program will take place after school on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s.  Students will have the opportunity to attend on their own or be assigned by teachers to SAT to receive help on homework.  The program objective is to help our student with homework completion and to give all of our students the support they need to be successful with their academics. 

Students completed the second nine weeks Redskin Rewards program. Students that had completed at least five goals were rewarded with the viewing of the First Man movie in addition to popcorn and water. We had over 500 students achieve the reward for the second nine weeks. This number is up by more than 50 from the previous school year. In addition to the rise in the number of students achieving the reward, our discipline referrals for the second nine weeks decreased by 150 from the previous school year, this makes a total of over 200 less discipline referrals then the previous school year. It’s good to see such amazing growth in our rewards program and students setting goals and achieving them.
