Wapakoneta High School Board Report:
We are only a couple weeks away from the end of the first semester. While it hasn’t been without its challenges, I am so proud of everyone for hanging in there and helping us to get us to this point in the school year. For most of our staff, this has probably been one of the most challenging school years and I have to say they are doing an amazing job under trying circumstances.
We have made the decision to not have semester exams this year because of the unknown of how many students will be quarantined. We believe these days will be best utilized as normal school days so that the students can continue to learn from their teachers.
One thing Covid couldn’t prevent at Wapakoneta High School is the annual FFA fruit and sausage sales. Mr. Brown and Mr. Turner have helped to lead our kids with a total sale of close to $45,000. It has been fun to watch the kids walking through the building with large boxes of fruit to deliver to staff members.
Mr. Landis and the choir students put together an amazing recording of the Earth Song by Frank Ticheli. The really cool thing about this is each student recorded their part during our remote learning week before Thanksgiving break. Mr. Landis was able to use a computer program to take each students recording and bring them together so it sounds like one live recording. It is really impressive what they were able to do. Here is a copy of the link if you would like to watch and listen.
