Warsaw Community Schools is proud to announce the recommendation of Matt Binkerd to fulfill the role of athletic director at Warsaw Community High School. Binkerd’s recommendation into the role follows the recent announcement by current Athletic Director Dave Anson that he would be stepping down from his position to pursue relocation to the Florida area with his family. Binkerd will be recommended to the WCS Board of School Trustees during the June regular board meeting.

Binkerd grew up in a suburb outside of Portland, Ore., called Hillsboro where his father was a longtime high school teacher, coach, and athletic director. His love of sports carried on to his college career at the University of Oregon where Binkerd competed on the football team for one year and track and field, where he was a pole vaulter for the Ducks for the duration of his college career.

Binkerd received his Master’s in education from Pacific University’s satellite program in Eugene in 1996. He was hired as the head boys’ track coach and social studies teacher at Elmira High School in Veneta, Ore.

Coach Binkerd transferred to Springfield High School in Springfield, Ore., in 1999. While there, he coached track and field as well as football. Binkerd became the head football coach in 2001. In 2003, he became the athletic and activities director at Springfield and resigned coaching track and football in 2004. He later went back to school to receive his administrative license from the University of Oregon in 2007-2008.  

He moved to Sheldon High School in Eugene, Ore., in 2008. Binkerd has been the athletics and activities director at Sheldon since that time. While serving at Sheldon, Binkerd has run one of the most successful athletic programs in the state.

Matt Binkerd has been married to his wife, Nicole, for 22 years in July. The couple has three children, two of whom attend college at Grace College and Indiana Wesleyan University. Their youngest son will attend Warsaw Community High School in the fall. The entire Binkerd family is thrilled and honored to serve the Warsaw Community Schools and community starting in July.

Warsaw Community High School will host commencement at 7 p.m. this Friday, June 7.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and attendees must have a ticket to enter.

Multiple entrances will be available as follows:
  • Main Entrance (Door 1),
  • Southeast entrance near C-Lot (Door 51),
  • Two entrances into the Tiger Den (Doors 25 and 29).

Due to construction, the Performing Arts Center will not be used as an entrance.

Handicap seating must be arranged prior to the ceremony and may be arranged by calling the school office at 574-371-5099

Attendees may park in lots A, B, C, D and in the available spots around the bus horseshoe outside the Performing Arts Center.

There shall be no parking in the spaces between lots A and D. This off-limits area is located between the baseball field and the school. Handicap parking will be available behind the pool entrance, which is located on the northwest side of the school.



Jefferson Elementary students enjoyed a warrior-themed obstacle course of their own during the final weeks of the school year. Students were able to push their limits and set goals for continual improvement. Through this process, students can build physical strength and have fun at the same time.

Jefferson Elementary teacher Janna Simcoe visited the Lake Claire Fitness Course –and with the help of Sandy Monce, Jamie George, Rachel Jensen and Principal Kyle Carter—began to dream of what an obstacle course may look like at the school. While they had the vision, it took the help of many to make it reality.

Two local contractors, Daniel Schlatter of Inglenook LLC and David Johnson of Signature Building and Design, worked with the school team to design and plan for the various obstacles. Jefferson Elementary PTO Secretary, Marla Schlatter, worked with members of the local community to seek donors for each obstacle. 

Donors include:
David Johnson, Signature Building & Design, LLC - bobcat work to remove sod excavate at each station, and drill holes for support posts
Daniel Schlatter, Inglenook, LLC - station design, materials list and delivery, coordinating volunteer work days
Kilburn Family - monkey bars
Smith Tire - donated used tires for stutter steps (tire run)
Light Rail Cafe - over/under bars
Brian Peterson Real Estate - balance beams
Denny & Glenda Duncan - rock wall
Kosciusko REMC - rope walk
Da-Lite, Legrand Better Communities Committee - incline/decline ladders
The Olive Branch, Spice Merchants - seesaw balance board
Jefferson Elementary School PTO - fence (not installed yet)


Jefferson Elementary would like to thank Marla Schlatter for raising the funds for the project and the many generous donors who provided their financial support. In addition, Jefferson would like to thank Inglenook LLC and Signature Building and Design for their assistance during the construction process. The project would also not have been possible without the contribution of various volunteers who assisted with the build as well as PTO President Kim Dawson and future president Jeri Purdy for their support. 
Warsaw Community Schools will soon begin its 2019 summer school.

Please note the amended information below for correct start and end times for all grade levels.

High School Summer School Hours
  • 8:30 am to 12:30 pm
  • Please note, morning bus pickup times are correctly listed on parent letters. However, afternoon bus drop off times will be one hour prior to time on the letter.

Pre-k to current Seventh Grade at Lakeview
  • Bus morning Drop off: 7:20 a.m. to 7:40 a.m.
  • Afternoon dismissal: 1:15 p.m.
  • Please note, morning bus pickup times are correct on parent letters. However, afternoon bus drop off times will be one hour later than time on the letter
Please use your student’s last completed grade level when determining grade levels for summer school. This would be the grade level your student completed during the 2018-2019 school year. Warsaw Community Schools would like to thank parents for their understanding with this error and correction.
