GRONINGER INKS INTENT WITH INDIANA WESLEYAN

WARSAW, Ind. -- Dayton Groninger, a two-time All Northern Lakes Conference first team selection and an Indiana Top 100 Workout and Showcase invitee, tipped off the start of her senior season by signing a Letter of Intent to play basketball and attend school next year at Indiana Wesleyan.

Groninger, a go-to-player that led the Lady Tigers in scoring the past two seasons, was named to the Ink Free News All-Area Team and the Times Union All Area team after tremendous sophomore and junior seasons.  She was also an Indiana Basketball Coaches Association Subway All-State Honorable Mention pick last year after leading her team in scoring (game-high 28 vs. Wabash), rebounding (career-high 16 vs. Oregon Davis), steals, assists, and free-throw percentage.

While the sure shooter has been a key force for the Tigers and coach Michelle Harter (sectional champs 2015, runner-up 2016), Groninger was also an instrumental figure in Warsaw's sectional and regional track championships last season as a member of the regional champion 4x800 squad and qualified for the state finals.  A participant in the 800-meter run, Groninger and her 4x800 teammates set the school record for the fastest indoor time during last year's indoor season.

While Groninger has been finding success on the hardwood and on the track outside of school, her outstanding efforts in the classroom  have landed her in the top 10% of her graduating class with a 12.1 GPA on a 12-point scale.  She is also a member of the National Honor Society, Tiger Student Athletic Board, and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

Groninger plans to major in Exercise Science at Indiana Wesleyan, an area of study where she is getting great experience serving with Miller's Merry Manor during an internship this semester.  She will play for coach Steve Brooks and the Wildcats.  Indiana Wesleyan is affiliated with the NAIA and NCCAA and is a member of the Crossroads League.

WARSAW — When it comes to enrolling in kindergarten, it is sometimes difficult to tell who is more nervous — the students or the first-time kindergarten parents.

While not every parent and student looks toward kindergarten with trepidation, Warsaw Community Schools is hosting its annual kindergarten roundup 6-7 p.m. Thursday, March 10 at all of its elementary schools for all incoming kindergartners and their parents.

During kindergarten roundup, parents will meet wit their children’s principals and teachers, see their child’s future classroom firsthand, step aboard a WCS school bus and learn about different programs and services offered to them through WCS.

Keeping in mind that not all students learn the same or have had the same kinds of opportunities, WCS offers a variety of programs right from the start, designed to give students the education that best suits them.

For kids who may have missed preschool, parents can ask about WCS’s United Way-funded transition program, designed to help students catch up on the skills they will need to succeed right from the start.

WCS also offers one section of half-day kindergarten at Washington STEM Academy. The section is kept open as long as there are enough students to fill it. The deadline to apply for half-day kindergarten is April 1.

A third program WCS offers its kindergarten students is the dual-language immersion program at Eisenhower Elementary School. This program is limited to two sections and is optional but will provide students with the necessary skills to become bilingual.

The dual language program will be open to students from other schools in the district as well.

Parents attending kindergarten roundup will receive information about all of the above programs and will learn about a typical day in the life of a WCS kindergartner.

Parents are encouraged to attend kindergarten roundup at their neighborhood school. Those with students who will attend a WCS school in another neighborhood should still stop by their local building for transfer information and forms. For students who live out of the district but who wish to attend WCS, there is no out-of-district tuition.

While parents are learning more about kindergarten, their students will participate in activities hosted by Warsaw Community High School National Honor Society students.

Doors for kindergarten roundup will open at 5:30 p.m. for parents wishing to come early and receive information about available programs.
