Good Morning, Raiders!

Today is Wednesday, May 5th 


Yearbook orders will be accepted until May 23rd.


Reminder to those who are new to Northwest State College classes, you are responsible to complete the two online assessments and then see Mrs. Franz to schedule your classes for next year.  Please do this by May 19th.


Students:  It’s Teacher Appreciation Week!!!  Your teachers do so much for you!  Give them a fist bump and thank them for all their hard work and dedication and for being such great role models for you!  Give them thanks!! 

Just a reminder that the order of periods today will be 9,8,1,2,5,6,7,3,4


Students - State testing will be today and tomorrow.  Today will be testing day 1 of American History for sophomores and Government for the juniors. Please make sure you charge your laptop tonight to be ready to go the next morning.  Also, please make sure you get plenty of rest the night before, eat a good breakfast and give your best effort on the test!  If you have any questions with testing, please check with the office.  Thank you.


Next year we would like to start a new program.  Our goal is to set up a group of students, a couple from each grade level, to help introduce the school to new students.  When a new student is coming to Wayne Trace, on their first day, one person from that grade level will show them around, help them read their schedule and show them their classes, explain lunch, and be available to sit with them during lunch if they do not know anyone.  One day before school starts, we will have all of the helpers come in and give an introduction to Wayne Trace before the first day.

If this is something you would be interested in doing, please fill out an application at lunch or see Mrs. Franz.
We will then look at the applications and choose about two per class.  Please sign up by May 14th.  We will have a virtual meeting the first week or two after school is out.  We will then have an in person meeting one day in August.  Let Mrs. Franz know if you have any questions.


Any girl interested in playing High School girls basketball next season, please sign up at lunch this Thursday, May 6th. 


There will be a cheer signup/information meeting for anyone grades 7-11 on Wednesday May 12th at 5pm In the lecture hall

Principal's Newsletter

The third nine weeks was completed on Friday, March 26.  It was a successful nine weeks for our students at Wayne Trace Junior/Senior High School.  I would like to commend and highlight some of the accomplishments:

The academic quiz team finished 6th place at the Green Meadows Conference tournament.  Our girls’ and boys’ varsity basketball teams both were sectional champions.  The boys’ team finished as district runners up.  

We had three wresters qualify for the state tournament and one alternate.  Jarrett Hornish finished as the STATE CHAMPION in his weight class.  Hunter Long finished 4th place in his weight class.  Gabe Sutton won his first match but then lost in the consolation round.  Seth Meggison was the alternate but did not wrestle at state.  Congratulations and great job to all of our wrestlers. 

Congratulations go out to 8th grader Aiden Lee whose artwork was selected from the Northwest Ohio region of the Youth Art Month online exhibition as an honored artist for the 41st Annual Young People’s State Art Exhibition.  Aiden will be receiving an artist prize packet for his award, and his paper mache mask will be exhibited online beginning in March.  

Lastly, many of our students were members of the cast and crew of the musical Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.  Their performances were excellent and well received by many who sold out with limited capacity each show at the Payne Elementary School auditorium.  

Congratulations to all the groups and individuals for their wonderful accomplishments!

Academically, the schedule for the upcoming state end-of-course testing has been set.  The testing will take place on the following days in these areas:
· 7th & 8th grade ELA, ELA I, and ELA II – Wednesday, April 21 and Thursday, April 22
· 7th & 8th grade Math, Algebra I, and Geometry – Wednesday, April 28 and Thursday, April 29
· 8th grade Science and Biology – Monday, May 3 and Tuesday, May 4
· American History and American Government – Wednesday, May 5 and Thursday, May 6
I want to thank the Wayne Trace School community for the continued support of our students in all areas of involvement.  Go Raiders!! 

Go Raiders!
Mike Myers, Principal
