Another school year is “in the books”, and again this year Wa-Nee Community Schools met and in many ways exceeded the standard of our “Tradition of Excellence”. Our students and staff worked diligently to have a strong finish to the year. Our Senior Class of 2016 have their diplomas in hand, and are looking forward to successfully meeting the challenges ahead. And now, everyone is looking forward to a summer of rest, recreation, and relaxation.
Summer is also a very busy time around Wa-Nee as we prepare for the 2016 - 2017 school year. Many of our teachers and administrators will be attending professional development summer institutes and workshops to hone their professional skills. Our maintenance staff will be working hard to ensure our facilities and grounds are in tip top shape. Our athletic coaches and marching band staff will be conducting camps and working with student athletes and student musicians preparing them for their upcoming seasons. Our technology staff will be getting computers and other learning devices refreshed and ready for students and staff. Our transportation department will be busy reorganizing and establishing bus routes for maximum efficiency, cleaning and servicing all corporation vehicles to ensure safety and security. Our business will be busy preparing and finalizing the budget for all aspects of the 2016-17 school year.
Also this summer the Phase 4 renovations to the physical education student locker rooms and wrestling room will be completed. Stay tuned for exciting news regarding the Phase 5 planned renovations which will be finalized this summer.
I wish everyone a safe and exciting summer and look forward to the coming school year.
-Joe Sabo, Superintendent of Schools
