Another school year is rapidly approaching. I hope that your summer has been an enjoyable one and that you are ready and eager to return to school on Wednesday, August 20th. In this newsletter you will find very important information regarding upcoming dates and changes for the 2014-2015 school year.
Please join us in welcoming our new teachers to the Jr./Sr. High School: Ryan Fisher (special education), Kayla Gawronski (science), and Heather Roehm (special education). In addition, Mallory Diamond (art) and Chrissy Sinn (business/computers) are transferring to new positions at the JH/HS.

Students will be permitted to meet with Mrs. Franz to make schedule changes on these dates during these times. Important Note: Students will NOT be permitted to make schedule changes at Open House or during the first week of school.
Emergency Medical Authorization (EMA) Form Parents should complete both sides of the form and students should return the form to the high school secretary on the day they pick up their schedules. It is important for the school to have up-to-date telephone numbers so a parent/guardian can be contacted quickly. Thank you for your help with this important document. This form is available in pdf. format on the school web site at the following link http://waynetrace.org/. For your convenience, the form can be typed, printed out, and returned to the high school office.
Payment of Fees – Different this year, parents and students will be notified of school fees the week of September 15. Payment of school fees should be done by October 17. Please make your checks payable to Wayne Trace High School.
Open House – The Jr. /Sr. High School Open House will be held on Tuesday, August 19, from 5:00-7:00 p.m. Included during Open House are the 7th grade orientation and the 8th grade Washington D.C. meeting. A cafeteria representative will be available during the Open House so you can deposit money for your child’s lunch account.
7th Grade Orientation – This orientation, held in the high school gym at 6:00 p.m., is for all 7th grade students and their parents. Mr. Leeth and Mr. Langhals, along with seventh grade staff members, will discuss the transition from sixth grade to seventh grade. Students and parents will have an opportunity to meet their teachers and to follow a simulated daily schedule.
8th Grade Washington D.C. Meeting – This informational meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m. following the conclusion of Open House. We would like to see all eighth grade students take the Washington D.C. trip, so please plan to attend this meeting. Cost of the trip and other important details will be presented at the meeting.
