Hallways that have been silent for two months are now filled with excited voices of our 3,000 community children and their teachers. Buildings cleaned, buses shined, parking lines painted, lawns mowed, furniture moved, computers checked, and menus completed for the 2019-20 school year. Installation of solar panels at every building will be completed by Labor Day, saving needed funds for the education of our youth.
All teachers will become part of professional learning communities this year. Additionally, every Wawasee employee has been trained in working with children that have experienced trauma in their young lives.
We are together in the fourth school year of 1 to 1 computer devices for all students. Our youth are learning so much both individually and together with their devices. We are now well acquainted with the Skyward program for student management of class schedules, lunches, communications, and grade reports. Every year shows us more ways that technology information can aid students, parents, and teachers.
At Wawasee, we continue to pride ourselves on preparing students for their future. From vocational programs, to dual college credit, to a variety of experiences that guide students to settle on a career path, our students are ready. We have had this goal in place since they were in early childhood.
Thanks for your support. With everyone’s encouragement, assistance, and care, we can work together for your child’s future.
