Respect, Responsibility, and Readiness

Wayne Trace students in grades 7-10 who exhibited the Raider qualities of Respect, Responsibility, and Readiness during the first four months of this school year enjoyed a trip to Van Wert's Olympic Lanes at the beginning of this month.  In order to qualify for this trip, students needed to have strong attendance, good grades, and no discipline referrals.  This trip was sponsored in part by donations received as part of the school's PBIS program which helps to address students' social, emotional, and behavioral needs by supporting and recognizing positive student actions.  

The Wayne Trace community would like to thank Integrity Ford, Olympic Lanes, R&L Truss, Inc., Fiesta Habaneros in Paulding, the Samaritan Foundation, Paulding Putnam Electric Cooperative, Inc., Van Wert Federal Savings Bank, First Financial Bank, Paragon Tempered Glass, Cooper Farms, Grover Hill VFW, and Dan Foss for their support of this and many other Wayne Trace programs.

Principal's Message

Principal's Message

JR./SR. HIGH SCHOOL – Mike Myers, Principal and Brock Howe, Assistant Principal

October 14 for the 2022-2023 school year. Grade reports were mailed on  October 21 to parents/guardians of our students at Wayne Trace Junior/Senior High School. Overall, the students have worked hard to keep up with the expectations of our teaching staff. Our district motto this year at each building is for students to Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Ready! The students and staff have been terrific in accepting this motto and displaying these qualities and expectations.

Parent-teacher conferences are set up for Wednesday, October 26 and Thursday, October 27th.  We had a great turn out!  Parents may call or email teachers directly if questions arise throughout the year. An important factor for student success is having parents who are involved and care about their child’s education.

The National Honor Society induction ceremony took place on Friday, November 4 at 1:55 p.m. Junior and senior students who meet the criteria in scholarship, character, service, and leadership were honored.
On Tuesday, November 8, the eighth grade students toured Vantage Career Center. While students do not make the decision to attend Vantage until their sophomore year, this tour motivates students to begin thinking about future career options. 
The annual Veteran’s Day program will be held on Friday, November 11 at 8:10 a.m. in the high school gymnasium. The public is invited to attend this inspiring assembly.

The end of the 2nd quarter is Wednesday, December 21, 2022.  High school exams will be on Tuesday, December 20 and Wednesday, December 21.  Christmas break (no school) will be from Thursday, December 22 to Monday, January 2.  School will resume on Tuesday, January 3rd.  

As always, I want to thank the community for its outstanding support of all the activities involving our students at Wayne Trace Jr./Sr. High School. Go Raiders!
Mike Myers, Principal
