Are you aware that you can vote in the November elections if you are 18 years old by November 3rd, 2020? Not sure how? Follow these easy steps!
1. You MUST register by October 5th to vote on November 3rd. To help with fraud, Indiana law does not allow same day registering and voting.

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 starting September 25th. 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
Wawasee Student Council is a leadership organization for high school students who possess leadership qualities and are trying to leave a lasting impact on the school/community. The Student Council currently contains over 50 students who plan and orchestrate events around the school and community through the help of fellow students, staff, and community members. Student council is broken up into four separate committees with designated leaders and members assigned to each event, the four committees are the executive, spirit, community, and student/staff committee. The executive committee is made up of the class officers and deals with student concerns, class connections, social media, fundraising, elections, etc. The spirit committee organizes the cheer block, theme days, homecoming, Pow Wow, and semiformal. The community service committee hosts veterans day, the blood drive, relay for life, Special Olympics, and trail clean up. The student/staff committee runs the open house, parent-teacher conferences, tutoring, and so long senior week. Student council is a great opportunity to have a voice within the school while also expanding your leadership experience through the many different events that are hosted. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to Mrs. Myers or any other active student council members. Please click on the Google Form link below if you’re interested in being a part of the Student Council.
