Principal's Corner

May 2015

Throughout the month of April we have completed the Math and English PARCC assessments.  These tests continue to be a challenge with our schedule so that we can provide enough time for the students to complete the tests and not lose instruction time throughout the rest of the building.  Our staff and students have done a great job of rolling with the changes and have made the most of this opportunity.  On May 4th and 5th we will have two more days of testing with the AIR assessments for Science and Social Studies.  Once these tests are over we will have completed the new state assessments for the 2014-2015 school year.  

I would like to thank Vickie Robie and Miller’s Textiles for talking with our students.  I had invited many of our local industry to talk with our students about the great opportunities of employment in Wapakoneta right after high school.  Vickie was kind enough to take time out of her busy schedule to present a PowerPoint and video to our students about Miller’s Textiles.  Many of the students that participated in the presentation were not aware of this opportunity right in their own backyard. 

The last week of April our Juniors and Seniors participated in many of the prom events at Wapakoneta High School.  The first event was the Mock Crash that was handled by our local law enforcement, fire department, rescue squad, coroner, and students.  The purpose of this event is to simulate what can happen if someone makes a poor choice of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.  I believe it left a lasting impression on our students and hopefully influenced them to make positive choices.  I would like to thank all the people that were involved with the Mock Crash.  These people take the time out of their busy schedule to do this because they care about our students.

Once the Mock Crash was over Jimmy Dubious talked with our students about his own personal story of alcohol and operating a motorized vehicle.   This is not an easy thing for Jimmy to do because it is very emotional for him but he does this to inform the students of all the bad things that can happen when you make a poor choice like this.  I believe his speech made a big impact on our students and I cannot thank Jimmy enough for doing this.

On April 25 our Juniors and Seniors then participated in the promenade, prom, and post prom.  I believe the events were a success and the students had a great time.  These events take a lot of planning and volunteers and I would like to thank everyone for putting on such a fun evening for our students. 

I would like to invite everyone out May 1 for the Cabaret.  This event will take place at Wapakoneta High School starting at 6:00pm.  We have a lot of talented students walking the halls of WHS and this is a great opportunity for them show off their talents and for everyone to experience them. 

Finally, on May 8, 9, and 10, Wapakoneta High School will be performing the school musical Footloose.  I would like to invite everyone to the show!  It should be a good one. 


Sincerely,
Mr. Scott Minnig, Principal
