Wapakoneta High School Board Report:

A few weeks ago I had a teacher bring an idea to me about starting a mascot program.  Mr. Zach Jung, currently teaches high school English and Speech at WHS.  He graduated from Bowling Green State University and was actually Freddie the Falcon at BGSU.  Zach saw the impact that a mascot had on the university and community. He believes that it can be just as impactful for our school district and community.  I believe this would be a wonderful program for our students, school, and community.  We are currently trying to raise funds to purchase the outfits and hopefully will be able to make this positive addition happen next school year. 

On April 7th, all of our junior students attended the Talent Connections Forum at Wright State Lake Campus in Celina.  Our students had the opportunity to visit with local employers from Auglaize and Mercy County.  They were able to attend different presentations depending on their interest.  It was a great opportunity for our kids to ask questions and find out what they need to do in the future in order to pursue specific careers. 

On April 12th, all of our junior students took a free ACT exam at Wapakoneta High School.  We also offered the ACT to any sophomore student willing to pay for the exam.  This is the fourth year we have done this and it is a requirement by the Ohio Department of Education. 

Finally, our students registered for their classes next school year.  It is hard to believe but we are already planning our schedule for next year.  As a staff, we are excited to organize and create the best schedule possible for our students.  This can be quite a challenge to arrange the classes so that every student is able to take the classes they request.  We are looking forward to the challenge.
