We’re very excited to announce an upcoming Perry Outreach Program on Saturday, October 20, 2018 at Zimmer Biomet in Warsaw, IN. The Perry Outreach Program is a free, one-day, hands-on experience for high school women who are interested in pursuing careers in medicine and engineering. Students will hear from women leaders in these fields and try it for themselves by performing mock orthopaedic surgeries and biomechanics experiments.
Congratulations to Kate Koontz, a recent WCHS graduate, on being named a national finalist in the Intellectual Property Owners Educational Foundation (IPOEF) Video Contest! Her video was inspired by her great-grandfather, who came up with some really cool inventions, but never took time to patent them. Ironically, though his ideas didn't make him rich, a version of his story may still help his great-granddaughter Kate pay for college! Kate created her video as a part of Mrs. Hopper's Videography class at the Warsaw Area Career Center this spring, and now Kate's creative video just landed her one of the four national finalist spots chosen by IPOEF judges. With your help, she has a chance to win up to $9,500!
WCHS is undergoing an exciting new construction project to benefit our students and community. However, with this project comes some necessary changes to our parking lot use and student drop-off and pick-up procedures. Below are some explanations of the procedures we are requesting parents and students to follow to assist us with the safety and convenience of everyone coming to the high school.
The drop-off/pick-up area by the WACC entrance is no longer available to anyone.
A Lot: Co-Op student parking only. These students will have a specific parking tag that is assigned by the WACC office by permission of Mrs. Kawsky.
B Lot: Staff parking only with a purple pass. Parent Drop-off/Pick-up when approaching from Logan and Union streets. See Map #1 - green arrow path
C Lot: Staff parking only. Parent drop-off/pick-up approach from HWY 15. See Map #1 - red arrow path
D Lot: Student and event parking. Due to high traffic, this is not a designated pick-up/drop-off area anymore.
There are two designated areas for parents to drop-off/pick-up their students. We will need for parents to choose from one of two approaches to the school so to limit traffic congestion. Please refer to Map #1 for these paths.
Approaching from either Logan or Union streets (by Edgewood MS) follow the the green arrow path (see map #1) towards the building. It is necessary to follow this path so to keep the flow of traffic constant and avoiding congestion as much as possible. The students will enter/exit the building through Door #1 when dropped off or picked up here.
When approaching from HWY 15, turn left (no right turn) towards the southern part of the building. Follow the red path arrow (see map #1) towards C Lot. The students will enter/exit the building through Doors #47-50 (PAC) when dropped off or picked up here.
The horseshoe parking area on the southern part of the building is restricted to buses only during school arrival and departure times. The parking area behind the Tiger Den/weight room is restricted to staff parking and buses only. This is not a pick-up/drop-off area for students.
D Lot is for student parking with a WCHS parking tag. Students parking in D Lot can enter the building through Doors #44 & 45. Due to the amount of traffic involved in this lot, this lot is not a designated pick-up/drop-off area anymore.
A Lot on the northside of campus is now parking for co-op students only that start their day at their worksite and come to school later in the morning. The vehicles parking in this lot will have a different colored tag distributed by the WACC office by permission of Mrs. Kawsky. Co-op students parking in this lot will need to the enter the building by Door #21 (follow the blue path on Map #2). There is no parking in the spaces by the tennis courts across from the construction area. The road from here will be blocked off to prevent traffic from crossing through to D Lot during arrival and dismissal times. This is to keep vehicles from mixing into the bus traffic behind the building.
Today WCHS and WACC Welcomed Back our faculty and staff to kick off the 2018-2019 school year. We all are excitedto welcome students back on Tuesday and have the best year yet!
