Principal's Corner

Wapakoneta High School Board Report:

On January 31, our junior student council held a fundraiser to help support a little girl and her family purchase of a therapy dog. These dogs are very expensive and our junior student council took it upon themselves to make the donation of $2,000 to help the family with the purchase of the dog.  I would like to commend Delani Harter, a junior student at WHS, and the junior student council for their hard work and kindness. 

I want to congratulate our 8th grade Power of the Pen team for their success at their competition this past month.  As a team we finished in first place and are invited to write at the regional competition. The members of the team are Riley Hibbard, Kalissa Kohler, Erika Lisi, Peyton Moyer, Alayna Place, and Libby Simmons.  I want to wish them good luck at regionals. 

One of our building goals this year is to develop meaningful relationships with our students.  During our one hour early release last week we learned about a strategy called “2x10,” that can help us with developing relationships with at risk kids.  We have challenged our staff members to pick a student they believe is at risk and have a 2 minute conversation with them for 10 days in a row.  The conversations can be about anything and the idea is that once the student knows that the teachers care about them they will give more effort within the classroom.  I am excited to hear feedback from our staff about this challenge.
