Principal's Corner

October 2014

Here at Wapakoneta High School we are off to a great start to the school year. I want to thank the students and staff for all of their hard work. Our staff has been working extremely hard with Student Learning Objectives or otherwise known as SLO’s. This is a new process that helps to measure student growth throughout the year. I believe we will find that this process will affirm how hard our students and staff work during the school year.

 

I would like to thank Suzanne Temple and the Art Club for creating the spirit posters in the school hallways. Mrs. Temple and students spend a lot of time designing and painting the posters and it makes for a great school environment. It is great to see the support for all of our teams and clubs.

 

Earlier this month Mr. Van Wright spoke to our freshman students about the next four years of high school. The focus of his message was about working as hard as they could in the classroom all four years of high school. He also encouraged them to get involved with as much as possible because these four years will go by fast and they will never have an opportunity to get it back. I want to thank Mr. Wright for taking the time out of his schedule to talk with our students.

 

Last Friday our FFA program sold and cooked over 1,600 halves of chicken. The goal for this chicken BBQ fundraiser was to raise $4,000. The proceeds will be donated to Make A Wish Foundation and Children’s Hospital. I would like to thank Mr. Brown and Mr. Turner for helping our students run this fundraiser. I am also proud of our students and their selflessness towards these charities. This is just one of the many examples of kindness and charity our students participate in throughout the school year. It is great to know that our school not only teaches the core subjects but also life lessons.

 

Sincerely,
Mr. Scott Minnig, Principal
