Now that we all have these handy dandy iPads, we thought it was time for The Roar to make the jump to technology as well! This year The Roar editors and staff have decided to put the newspaper online as well as offering our usual hard copy papers! We are so proud to bring you stories that show life here at WCHS and that matter to our staff and students. Now, there is no excuse not to have something to read for Everybody Reads time on Wednesday and Thursday! ?
We will have an issue out every other month or so! You can see the next one right before Winter Break!
There is still time to sign up for the SAT Prep class! The SAT Prep will cover both English and Math. Students can sign up for one or both subjects.

Hoosier Girls State information is now available in the guidance office. This program is available to current juniors and is designed to educate young women of Indiana in the duties, privileges, rights and responsibilities of citizenship. It is a week of living and learning the political system of Indiana through a mythical city. This year’s Hoosier Girls State will be held from June 19th through June 25th on the campus of Trine University in Angola. You don’t have to be interested in politics to benefit from this activity…Citizenship, not politics, is emphasized. This would be a great way to kick-off your summer and it looks great on scholarship and job applications too!! Stop by the guidance office to pick up an application. Deadline is January 27th.
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)
