We embrace the core values of Warsaw Community Schools.

  • Everyone has value- any question you may have is important to us. Feel free to call or email us when you need to know something. If we don’t already know, we’ll make every effort to help you find out.
  • Every individual has something to contribute- each student is unique and we enjoy getting to know your students and helping them pursue their dreams.
  • Learning enriches life- Students can get very excited when they master a concept or have a passion ignited. They can also get very discouraged if they are struggling in class. Let us know how we can help you on either end of that spectrum.

WCHS peer leaders with Sources of Strength identified their source of strength in life.

What is your source of strength? What steps can you take to build up other areas of strength in your life?

Our Sources of Strength

Peer leader and adult advisors at the high school are working together to spread awareness of how we can focus on hope, help, and strength in life, by drawing upon our sources of strength and reaching out to trusted adults.
WCHS students were encouraged to identify on a post it note, a trusted adult they can turn to for support. The Sources of Strength peer leaders and adult advisors work to help students get connected to hope, help, and strength.#wcsmission

This year at WCHS, we are excited to be implementing an initiative entitled Sources of Strength. This group is comprised of 70 peer leaders and 25 adult advisors, who completed a training with national certified trainers. Sources of Strength will be striving to implement messages of hope, help, and strength throughout the school. We will focus on 8 core areas of strength. These strengths are family support, positive friends, mentors, healthy activities, generosity, spirituality, medical access, and mental health. 

The mission statement of Sources of Strength is as follows:

We are a group of diverse students and adults from many different corners and cultures of our school and community. We believe that life has ups and downs, that all of us will go through good times and tough times. Our mission is to ensure that during the rough times no one gets so overwhelmed or hopeless that they want to give up.

Our mission is to spread Hope, Help, and Strength into every corner of our community.   

Our mission is to help students and staff turn to their strengths and their supports that are all around. We are Connectors to Help and Strength.

Our mission recognizes that our voice  has great power and we use it to BREAK the SILENCE when someone is struggling, and to connect them to the help they need and deserve.   

We Spread Hope by focusing on stories of strength, rather than on stories of trauma. We know our most powerful impact comes from our personal actions, conversations, and messages that use our music, our art, our writing, our activities, our social media, our culture, and our voice. This gives life to our efforts.

We are Sources of Strength!!
