Next year’s seventh grade band will be forming soon and Warsaw Community Schools would like to extend an invitation to your child to participate in its exciting music programs!

“I believe everyone is born with musical ability. Now is the time to nurture that ability. Participation in band provides an avenue for creativity and self-expression that adds richness to the quality of life,” states band director Joseph Peloza.

Recent studies have also shown, on average, students who study a musical instrument score higher on standardized tests and out perform their peers in academic courses.

To enroll in band for next year, we invite you and your child to attend instrument fittings on Monday, Feb. 4, at Edgewood Middle School from 4 p.m. to 7:30 pm. During these informal fittings, each child will have a hands-on opportunity to try out any instrument they might be interested in playing. The goal of the evening meeting is to choose the instrument best suited to your child.

We look forward to meeting you at the Band Fitting Night. We anticipate the beginning of another great seventh grade band. Please call 574-371-5037 or email Lori Owens at to schedule an instrument fitting appointment for your student.

Due to anticipated historic low temperatures Tuesday afternoon through Thursday of this week, Warsaw Community schools will be closed 1/29, 1/30 and 1/31.  During that time, E-Learning days will be observed.

While temperatures are in an acceptable range on Tuesday morning, significant temperature drops are projected around noon.  There is also considerable worry of salt becoming ineffective with black ice due to the extreme temperatures and wind chills. In an effort to prevent exposure to such conditions for our students, teachers, parents and drivers WCS will be closed during these dates.  Please stay safe and warm!

All Warsaw Community Schools will be closed due to extreme wind chills for Friday, January 25, 2019.  e-Learning Day with assignments posted by 11:00 a.m. and due Wednesday, January 30, 2019 at 11:59 p.m.

Warsaw Community Schools’ summer school will begin with session one on Monday, June 3, and will conclude on Friday, June 21. The second summer session is scheduled to begin Monday, July 8, and will conclude Friday, July 26. Further details on summer school sessions and schedules will be released closer to the date.
