We will wrap up the third nine weeks on March 19. Since our return from Christmas Break, and the changes implemented by the State of Ohio, it has been very positive in the school buildings. We have less students being diagnosed with COVID-19 and we are no longer quarantining large numbers of students.
In all of our buildings we have exciting things happening! Our students at WES are roller skating in gym class and they have their field trip scheduled to Edgewood Skate Arena. At Cridersville and WES they are celebrating Right to Read week. This will cap off with "Be a Book Day" at Cridersville on Friday. I am looking forward to seeing all of the costumes that go along with the books!
The middle school is continuing to grow their positive behavior intervention program through the Band of Brothers, positive rewards, and the PBIS store. These are school wide initiatives, but our teachers do an excellent job modeling positive behaviors in all aspects of the building. Coming soon there will be a new group for some of our middle school ladies to join as well.
At Wapakoneta High School we are wrapping up our winter sports season with one of the highlights being the boys' swim team finishing 8th in the state! Our juniors will be taking the ACT in the very near future, and we just announced that we will be hosting prom on May 15, and graduation on May 28. Both of these events will be held outside and it is our goal to make them as special as possible!
Our staff members were able to receive the Coronavirus vaccine and it will help with our goal of being in school 5 days a week for the entire year. The weather is warming up, we have exciting events approaching, there are great things happening in the classroom, and we will be in our last quarter in just a few weeks. It is a great day to be a Redskin!
