Academically, during the month of March our focus turns to the upcoming state end-ofcourse testing. Students in the Class of 2020 and beyond are taking end-of-course exams in six tested areas (Algebra I, Biology, American History, Geometry, English II, and American Government). These exams, along with seventh grade English and Math, and eighth grade English, Math, and Science will be administered April 16, 17, 22, 23, 27, 28, 29, 30 at Wayne Trace Junior/Senior High School.
I would encourage parents to go the Ohio Department of Education website if you have a chance to view example test questions. The ODE tries to answer as many questions or concerns that parents may have in regard to state testing.
We have several special events taking place in March. Our high school band and choir will perform at the OMEA district contest on March 13 and 14 at Celina High School. This will be a terrific opportunity for our students to perform. Also, the FFA Pancake and Sausage Breakfast will be March 14 from 7-11am in the HS cafeteria. The FFA will be scheduling a date for their banquet very soon.
Our high school students will perform the musical Tarzan on March 6-8 at the Payne Elementary auditorium. We encourage everyone in the school community to come and see our students display their talents!
As always, if there are questions regarding your son/daughter’s education, please contact us at the school. We are committed to provide the best possible education for the all students!
