It was a great trip to Plymouth to meet Dave and Janet Burke! Special thanks to Mr. Stan Seiss and his efforts to ensure all Warsaw state champions are recognized with their photo placed in the trophy case! After getting in touch with Dave Burke - the 1951 state champion in the high jump - Blossers used an old photo and negative to create an 11x14 to place in the case, and one was made to share with Mr Burke! The Warsaw graduate was one of Warsaw's first state champions and he continued his track & Field career at Purdue University. Burke went on to teach and coach in Warsaw for several years, and he served 33 years teaching mathematics and coaching track at Culver Military Academy. Burke is also an inductee to the Kosciusko County Basketball Hall of Fame. (Pictured: Scott Erba, Dave Burke, Stan Seiss)
Good day to all,
This is a busy week here at WCHS/WACC as we conclude our semester and ready ourselves for the much anticipated Christmas Break!
End of course assessments will take place beginning with the 7th period class on Weds. As a reminder, the Thursday Bell Schedule will be that of our normal Weds. Bell Schedule. Students will have periods 1, 3, and 5 assessments. On Friday, we will run our regular Thurs. Bell Schedule. Students will be assessed periods 2, 4, and 6. We will also have a special Enrichment time by celebrating our "A" students and having members of our Performing Arts groups present a Christmas program.
We would like to remind students that the regular school day on Friday ends at 2:10 with PLC to follow. Parents are encouraged to pick up their student at this time on Friday. If you cannot arrange a ride for your student, busses will run for anyone not having a ride to leave early at the normal 2:50 PM time.
On behalf of the WCHS Administrative Team,
Season's Greetings and a Happy New Year!
