It is that time of the season again! The robotics club is back and selling Christmas Ornaments.We have over 30 to pick from!!!! The website will have better pictures, check them all out! Below is the link to our website where you can place an order. Ornaments range from $5 to $10. Be aware that we have limited supplies to make these ornaments. All ornaments were designed by students and will be manufactured by students. Once we run out of materials we will not be able to fulfil any more orders... So order fast to make sure you get in early. We will stop taking orders on December 15th, if we still have materials at that date. When you place your orders you will see a message that we do not deliver, however that is not true in your case. Once your order is placed, and payment is made we will get you your order as quickly as we can. In order to do this we ask that in the special instructions before submitting your order, you rewrite your name AND your Building you work in please Payments can be either cash or check. Checks should be made out to Wapakoneta City Schools with "Robotics Club" in the memo. All payments should be sent to Mr. Fennell at WHS.

As Thanksgiving approaches, we are grateful for opportunities to support positive mental health at WHS above and beyond daily staff interactions with our students. With the financial support of Jan and Dave Ashby, we hosted Tony Hoffman in September, and he spoke to all of our students about the connection between mental health and substance use. In October, Family Resource Center offered free teen screens to evaluate for symptoms of depression, anxiety, and substance use. This month, we welcomed Faith Cisco, owner of Overcomer Boxing Studio in Wapak, who talked to interested students about how she uses and encourages others to use physical activity to cope with mental health issues.
