Principal's Corner

December 2014

 

First of all I would like to congratulate Coach Moyer, the coaching staff, and players for a great football season.  This sure was a fun football season to be a Redskin!  Success in the playoffs requires a lot of extra time from the coaches, players, and several other groups.  I would like to thank Mrs. Koch and the cheerleaders, Mr. Wimmers, Mr. Hilleary and the band for all of their extra time and commitment throughout the playoff run.  There are many other people behind the scenes that help make the experience positive for our students and I would like to thank them as well. 

Earlier this month Mrs. Semple’s Consumer Science class participated in the Real Money Real World project.  During this activity the students learn how to budget their money with life expenses such as food, rent, mortgages and car insurance.  This is a real eye opening experience for many of our students.  We also have several local business people that participate throughout the day.  I would like to thank Mrs. Semple and our volunteers for providing this opportunity for our students. 

Our drama club premiered the weekend of November 15th with an interactive dinner theater.  Approximately 40 students were involved in the entire process.  Most of the students that participated in the production were students that have not been a part of the school musical or performing arts of Wapakoneta High School.  A total of 157 people came to watch the performance and have dinner.  This was the first event for our Drama Club and I would like to thank Nikki Barger, our club advisor, for all of her hard work and dedication to make this club a reality. 

The 8th grade students recently visited Washington D.C. trip.  This is always a highlight for many of our 8th grade students.  I would like to thank Mr. Johnson and all of the chaperones for helping to make this trip a success.  Also, if you get a chance to check out our school Facebook page you can watch a YouTube video of Mr. Snyder dancing to the Cupid Shuffle on the dinner cruise. 

Sincerely,
Mr. Scott Minnig, Principal
