The Gateway Education Center will host a dedication ceremony on December 18, 2013, at 1:00 pm to rename the library in honor of the late Dr. David McGuire. Dr. McGuire was instrumental in establishing the Alternative Learning Center now known as the Gateway Education Center. Dr. McGuire had a long career in education including many years with Warsaw Community Schools where he was a teacher, principal, and superintendent. Dr. McGuire's legacy of learning through reading will be extended through the recently revitalized library program at the Gateway Education Center.
The Warsaw Community High School Instrumental Music Department will present "The Sounds of the Season" on Thursday, December 12th at 7:30 p.m. in the WCHS Performing Arts Center Auditorium. The concert will feature the WCHS Concert Band and Wind Ensemble. The WCHS Jazz Band, Clarinet Choir, Saxophone Ensemble, Brass Quintet, Low Brass Ensemble, and the state-championship Percussion Ensemble will also perform. All ensembles are under the direction of Mickey Ratliff and Emily Mikel.
The program will also include such holiday classics as "Baby, It’s Cold Outside", "A Cartoon Christmas", "Charlie Brown Christmas", "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen", "Go Tell It On the Mountain", "Happy Xmas (War is Over)", and many others.

This year in the libraries at Lakeview and Edgewood students can take part in the "Starbooks" reading program. Each library has selected dates that line up with basketball games, so that student can come to the library right after school and stay until the basketball game starts. The students can enjoy hot chocolate, tea, and snacks while they read and hear book-talks about new and exciting books. "Starbooks" will be offered at Lakeview on January 16th and February 12th. At Edgewood it will offered on January 9th, January 21st, and February 4th. Hope to see you there!Continue reading
