During this week of Homecoming, the student council is having a locker decorating contest! To go along with our theme, Wawasee’s Got Game, bring materials from home to decorate your locker with anything to do with board games. Must be appropriate!! On Friday, the three best decorated lockers will be chosen and given a $10 gift card to McDonalds. We are also having a trivia kahoot during lunch so make sure to bring a device.
The dress up days are the following:
TOMORROW: Pink Out Shirts
This year, to support the Pink Out cancer awareness night, the Student Council will be hosting a fundraiser during lunch this week of Homecoming. This competition will be held everyday during all three lunches in the cafeteria. Located at a table near the entrance door to the cafeteria, There will be 4 large money collection containers. Each container will have a different grade level attached to it. Up on the wall, there will be a large Monopoly board with a pawn for each class. For every $5 each grade collects, we will move their pawn one space clockwise around the board. Once the first pawn, or grade level, goes all the way around the board and reaches “GO WARRIORS”, Mr. Walmer and other administrators will cheer as cheerleaders for a section of the Homecoming football game. But do notice that the grade level must make their way around the whole board in order for the administrators to receive this challenge. The competition will begin today through Friday during lunch. Let’s team together as Warriors and show cancer who’s got game!
This is the Homecoming Court of 2020-2021. You will be voting for the seniors at the bottom from Tuesday-Thursday. The winner will be announced at the Homecoming Game. Watch for the voting form in your emails!

Use these four years to find your passion, grow as a person, and prepare for the real world. While doing so, get involved, go to school events, and enjoy your time here. Most importantly, never take these years for granted.
Wearing a clean mask can help reduce "mascne" or irritation to the face from bacteria passed from a dirty mask to the skin.
I will be offering a mask washing service to students every Friday. How does this work?
Every Friday before 11a.m. you can drop off your mask in the laundry basket located in attendance. *Bring an extra mask with you to wear during the day*
There will be a stack of Fabric Labels and a pen for you to attach a label to your mask and write your FULL name on it or First Initial and Last Name if you are cramped for space. Please make sure it is legible! This will keep it from getting lost.
Your mask will be washed with hot water and dried on high heat to kill any bacteria.
You can pick up your mask at the end of the day in the same location before leaving school. Check the label to make sure you picked up your mask.
If this is well received I may add more days to this service.
For those of you washing masks at home:
Wash in hot water
Ideally you should do this daily to have a clean mask every day
