Principal's Corner

March,

At Wapakoneta City Schools our vision is to be the leader in providing excellent learning experiences for our students.  Our mission is to provide a caring place to develop responsible, productive citizens.  I believe that we have many students and staff members living our vision and mission on a daily basis. 

For example, our student council has taken on the responsibility of organizing a food drive to help support our local food pantries.  Our students were excited to take on this responsibility to help community members that are in need. 

As I have walked around the high school I have seen several teachers implementing our Google Chromebook technology into their classroom.  Many of our teachers are using programs such as Kahoot, Schoology, Socrative, and Google Classroom for collecting assessment data or issuing assignments.  A few more teachers are starting to implement the teaching strategy of flipping the classroom with the technology.  This is where the teachers record their lectures online and the students listen to the lecture at home.  The students then come to class and complete projects or assignments in class.  This allows the students to have the teacher available for help. 

Mr. Fennell and the Robotics club recently participated in their first robotics competition at Van Wert.  This club is new this school year at the high school and has provided our students with a wonderful opportunity to learn about robotics, programing, collaboration, and manufacturing.  At one time our students were in first place out of twenty-seven teams during the competition.  This is quite a feat considering it is only our first year in existence.  I would attribute this to Mr. Fennell and the student’s hard work and dedication. 

Finally, our a cappella group Midweek performed in Anna Arbor, Michigan at the end of January at a regional competition.  This was the first year for the group Midweek and it was a wonderful accomplishment for them to reach that level.  According to Ms. Pellington, she could not have been more proud of the way the students performed.  This is another example of our students working hard and working together to reach success. 

These excellent learning experiences could not be possible without the support of our school board and community.  We are very lucky to be a part of such a great school district. 

Sincerely,
Mr. Scott Minnig, Principal
