Wapakoneta High School one of our building goals for this school year is for
our teachers to participate in Learning Walks each grading period. Learning Walks consist of a group of teachers
going into different classrooms for about 5-10 minutes each and observing the teacher
and students during the lesson. Once the
5-10 minutes are complete, the teachers that are participating in the Learning
Walks gather together in the hallway and discuss the teaching strategies they
observed. It is a great way for us to
learn from one another. We have great
teachers in our building and it is important that we grow together as a staff. A few weeks ago we were able to complete our
first round of Learning Walks. I was
able to participate with several of our groups throughout the week and was able
to listen to our teachers’ conversations.
It was obvious they were picking up great ideas from one another. I am looking forward to this opportunity
again next grading period.
Finally, our students participated in several homecoming activities on the week of September 23. We started with spirit week. Each day had a specific theme for our students to dress up and show their school spirit. We ended up the school week with a pep rally to honor all of our fall athletes and band members. On Friday night we honored our homecoming court before the football game. Finally, our students were able to enjoy themselves on Saturday night at the homecoming dance where Mr. Minnig and Mr. Selvey DJ’d. I would like to thank Mrs. Julie Courter for organizing all of the different events throughout this week.
