Principal's Corner


Scott Minnig, Principal


On May 20th, Wapakoneta High School hosted to the Middle School 7th grade students.  The future 8th graders had the opportunity to explore the high school, ask current students questions, eat lunch, receive their schedule, and meet some of their teachers.  This day was designed by our Transitions Committee to help elevate any stress our students might have about coming to the high school next year.  I believe the day was a positive experience for these students. 

On May 23rd and 24th our students completed their final exams.  The school year officially came to an end on Friday and I would like to thank the students, parents, teachers, and all support staff in helping to get us to this point.  Without everyone’s help it would not be possible. 

On May 25th our seniors will participate in the Commencement Ceremony.  This is their last official event as an entire group at Wapakoneta High School.  I would like to wish them well. 

Concluding the 2019 School year and Redskin Rewards was our Field Day. This was to reward our students who achieved six or more goals during the 4th quarter. We had close to 600 students participated in the field day, fifty more than last year. Overall, discipline referrals have decreased by 250 throughout the school year. The field day consisted of all you can eat Popcorn, Cotton Candy and Snow Cones. We also had a T-Shirt cannon and various area businesses donated t-shirts that the students were able to catch. We had the National Guard bring bikes and an obstacle course for the students to go through and both Mr. Minnig and Mr. Selvey were dunked multiple times by students. Students also played kickball, whiffle ball and tennis and enjoyed a wonderful free packed lunch provided by our cafeteria staff.  It was a great day had by all the students that had worked so hard throughout the last nine weeks.
