JR./SR. HIGH SCHOOL – Mike Myers, Principal and Brock Howe, Assistant Principal
The 2021-2022 school year is quickly coming to a close with our final student day scheduled for Tuesday, May 24 and graduation set for Sunday, May 22 at 2:30 PM in the high school gymnasium. Graduation practice will be Thursday, May 19 at 8:30 AM. Congratulations to all of our seniors and their parents for meeting the challenges and hard work required to succeed, while maintaining the perseverance necessary to make this day a reality. My hope is that our seniors have come to recognize the value of education and that learning is a life-long process!
Our students are finishing up their state testing the last week of April. We test the first thing in the morning for approximately 90 minutes. The periods are rearranged throughout the testing days so our students who are testing do not miss the same classes. Our students are working hard and appear to be giving their best effort.
Our juniors and seniors will enjoy a special time on Saturday, May 7 as the prom will take place in the Wayne Trace junior high school gym. After-prom activities will be held at the Crazy Pinz Entertainment Center in Fort Wayne, IN.
We have several opportunities to recognize academic success and enjoy the talents of our students. The annual senior awards will take place on Thursday, May 12 at 7:00 PM. The junior high band and choir will hold their spring concert at 7:00 PM on Tuesday, May 3 and the high school band and choir concert will be on Monday, May 16 at 7:00 PM. Both concerts will be in the high school gymnasium. There will be a Wayne Trace School District Art Show on Saturday, May 14 from 12 - 3 pm in the Junior High gym. Our seniors at Vantage will be recognized with their awards ceremony at Van Wert High School on Monday, May 23 at 7 pm.
Please come and support our students by attending the remaining concerts, ball games, and track meets as we close an excellent year at Wayne Trace Junior/Senior High School.
