Greg Leeth, Principal
The final full month of the school year is upon us, and with the coming of May, come many exciting celebrations for students at Wayne Trace Jr./Sr. High School; yet, there is much academic work to be done.
The second round of state testing will begin on May 5 and end on May 15. The schedule is as follows:
May 5 Gr. 7 and 8 math, Algebra I and geometry Unit 1
May 6 Gr. 7 and 8 math, Algebra I and geometry Unit 2
May 7 Gr. 8 science and physical science
May 8 Gr. 7, 8, and 9 ELA Units 1 and 2
May 11 Am. History and Am. Government
May 12-15 Make-up tests
Each of these tests will be given at the beginning of the school day, so it is important that students are on time to school and prepared for the day. I encourage students to get a good night’s rest before and to eat breakfast the day of these tests. As mentioned in last month’s newsletter, students and staff have done a tremendous job of preparing and taking the tests. I look forward to a strong finish of this year’s testing.
In celebration of student successes for this school year, we have the following awards programs planned. Senior Awards night is scheduled for May 14 at 7:00 p.m. in the cafeteria. Letters have been mailed to parents of students who are receiving awards. On May 19, the high school band and choir will perform their spring concert at 6:30 p.m., followed by an awards ceremony. Of course, the most important of the celebrations will occur on May 24 at 2:30 p.m. when we hold our graduation ceremony.
The last school day for seniors is scheduled for May 22, while all other students will finish classes on June 4. The school year has been extended due to make-up days for weather cancelations being added. May 29-June 4 are make-up days for all students except for seniors.
Senior exams will take place on May 20 and 21, and underclassmen exams are tentatively sched-uled for June 3 and 4.
I encourage all to support our students by attending the remaining concerts, ballgames, and track meets as we close another tremendously successful year at Wayne Trace Jr./Sr. High School.
