The first eLearning Day for 2017-2018 for Warsaw Community Schools will take place on Saturday, Feb. 17. This day and March 17, have been scheduled to make up school days that have been missed due to dangerous weather conditions. Making up lost instructional time in this manner allows students to be dismissed for the summer in late May as opposed to June.

eLearning Day Procedures

All student assignments for the eLearning Day will be posted by 9 a.m. on the district and school website. The district website may be accessed by visiting http://www.warsaw.k12.in.us and the school web site may be accessed by visiting http://yourschoolname.warsaw.k12.in.us (ie: http://claypool.warsaw.k12.in.us). All lessons will be organized by school and grade level. Each teacher’s page will provide specific instructions for the assignments to be completed as well as optional enrichment activities. If the teacher has included a parent signature form for student assignments, the parent or guardian will need to sign and return the form to school to verify lesson completion.

The assignments may be completed on the actual eLearning Day or may be completed and turned in any time prior to the start of school on the following Thursday, Feb. 22. Completion of the assignments will allow the student to be counted as in attendance on the eLearning Day. Any student who fails to turn in the assignments by the deadline will be counted absent for the eLearning Day.

On the eLearning Day, teachers may be contacted by email or other established means of communication with any questions about assignments. Additionally, a technology support line will be available for any general technology questions by calling 574-371-5088 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Warsaw Community Schools invites you to attend the third annual Elementary Robotics Showcase from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 10. The event will take place in the Warsaw Area Career Center Gym, located at 1 Tiger Lane, Warsaw.

The entire community is welcome to attend this free event, which will showcase the skills and knowledge WCS elementary students have garnered in robotics. The students have worked to learn the engineering and programming skills needed to maneuver the robots while also enforcing soft skills of problem solving, team work and perseverance. 

Events will include drag racing and capture the flag Lego robotics performances. Concessions will be available. 

The annual event is made possible through a generous donation from Zimmer Biomet, Warsaw, which allowed for each elementary school to be equipped with 12 Lego EV3 robots along with additional Lego equipment.

Warsaw Community Schools is proud to announce Harrison Elementary Principal Matt Deeds recent award of Elementary Principal of the Year by the Indiana Association of Student Councils.

Bringing a passion for student success both in and out of the classroom, Deeds served as a middle school educator from August 2006 to July 2012. In 2012, he transitioned into his administrative roles at Lakeview Middle School before becoming principal at Harrison in 2016.

Deeds notes during the course of the past year, he worked closely alongside Student Council Sponsor Dan Graney to promote numerous philanthropic service projects while developing character growth and leadership with students.

In addition to his service to students through his career, Deeds also brings his talents to several school and community organizations.

WCHS in conjunction with Warsaw Police Department participated in a routine canine sweep of the classrooms this morning. Lt. Joel Beam of WPD was instrumental in coordinating the efforts. The building was placed in a "lockout" mode where teachers continued to teach, yet hallway traffic was suspended. Three dogs and handlers conducted active classroom sweeps this morning. As always, we appreciated the cooperation of our students and staff.

At the end of the search, one student was found to be in possession of a vape device and vape juice containing a nicotine substance. We remain vigilant in working to keep illegal drugs out of our building.

Warsaw Community Schools recently welcomed Thomas Franklin to share his journey as an award-winning photographer, multimedia journalist, documentary filmmaker and college professor.

Franklin is best known for his iconic flag raising image taken at ground zero of the World Trade Center immediately after the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001. This widely recognized photograph was featured on the United States Postal Service’s heroes fundraising stamp. Proceeds from these stamps have generated over $10 million dollars for those affected by 9/11.

A Pulitzer Prize finalist in 2002, Franklin’s image was cited by Life as one of the “100 Photographs That Changed the World.” The photo has become part of a permanent collection of the library of congress, the Newseum and the National September 11 Museum.

Franklin first met with students of Warsaw Community High School during a special convocation honoring veterans in the Warsaw Performing Arts Center. The event featured the presentation of colors by the WCHS JROTC program; the performance of the “National Anthem” by WCHS select choral as well as the singing of the “Star Spangled Banner” and “America the Beautiful” by the WCHS choir.

Franklin shared his experience as a multi-media journalist at the scene of the World Trade Center and the incredible effect his photos had not only on his life, but the lives of others. 

Following the Veterans Day program, Franklin met with high school photography and journalism students to share tips and advice for students interested in multi-media communications. Approximately 86 students had the unique opportunity to engage with Franklin in a classroom setting to learn more about his techniques and the artistic process behind “making a photo.” A question and answer session followed this presentation with an opportunity for students to take a group photo with Franklin at the close of the session.

Franklin concluded his visit with a presentation to Warsaw Community Schools' fifth grade students in the Warsaw PAC. During this presentation, Franklin encouraged students to pursue their dreams and goals while enriching the lives of others.
