General Information

General Information (10)

At the start of the 2019-20 school year, we will continue with our parent/student pick-up and drop-off plan that we used last year. As our major construction projects on the Student Athletic Center and WACC finish up, we will update this plan and communicate our changes at that time.

Below are some explanations of the procedures we are requesting parents and students to follow to assist us with the safety and convenience of everyone coming to the high school.

The drop-off/pick-up area by the WACC entrance is no longer available to anyone.

A Lot: Co-Op student parking only. These students will have a specific parking tag that is assigned by the WACC office. The North A Lot (by soccer field) is open for all student drivers. The four traffic islands separates these two parking lots.
B Lot: Staff parking only with a purple pass. Parent Drop-off/Pick-up when approaching from Logan and Union streets. See Map - green/teal arrow path
C Lot: Staff parking only. Parent drop-off/pick-up approach from HWY 15. See Map - orange arrow path
D Lot: Student and event parking. Due to high traffic, this is not a designated pick-up/drop-off area.

There are two designated areas for parents to drop-off/pick-up their students. We will need for parents to choose from one of two approaches to the school so to limit traffic congestion.
Approaching from either Logan or Union streets (by Edgewood MS) follow the the green/teal arrow path towards the building. It is necessary to follow this path so to keep the flow of traffic constant and avoiding congestion as much as possible. The students will enter/exit the building through Door #1 when dropped off or picked up here.
When approaching from HWY 15, turn left (no right turn) towards the southern part of the building. Follow the orange path arrow towards C Lot. The students will enter/exit the building through Doors #47-50 (PAC) when dropped off or picked up here.

The horseshoe parking area on the southern part of the building is restricted to buses only during school arrival and departure times. The parking area behind the Tiger Den/weight room is restricted to staff parking and buses only. This is not a pick-up/drop-off area for students.

D Lot is for student parking with a WCHS parking tag. Students parking in D Lot can enter the building through Doors #44 & 45. Due to the amount of traffic involved in this lot, this lot is not a designated pick-up/drop-off area.
A Lot on the northside of campus closest to the building is parking for co-op students only that start their day at their worksite and come to school later in the morning. The North A Lot parking lot (closest to the soccer fields) is open for student parking. The vehicles parking in this lot will have a different colored tag distributed by the WACC office by permission of Mrs. Kawsky. Co-op students parking in this lot will need to the enter the building by Door #21.
The road from here will be blocked off to prevent traffic from crossing through to D Lot during arrival and dismissal times. This is to keep vehicles from mixing into the bus traffic behind the building.

Art Department Grading Practices

Written by
Weighting-We use only points and assign the number according to the time spent on the assignment. (ex. a worksheet might be worth 5-10 points, whereas a major project might be worth 100 points)

Late Work-we negotiate with each student independently based on the situation. We have to accept late work because of the nature of art projects. We are willing to extend a deadline if adequate progress is being made, but reserve the right to give partial grades where effort is low.

Extra Credit- we offer very few opportunities, and all of them involve volunteering, or extra- curricular activities.

Redo work - We are always willing to accept a redo of work, if the student takes initiative to improve their work

PowerSchool entry- we put “0” grades and M until the work is finished.

Number of assignments-It will vary depending on the level of the class, but in general at least an average of one grade per week. Some advanced classes have fewer grades, but more one-on-one critique for feedback. These advanced classes also have larger projects and thus fewer grades.

Scholastic Art Awards

Written by
Warsaw Community High School Art students were highly decorated again this
year at the 2019 Scholastic Art Awards Competition.

In another successful year, Warsaw Art students received 26 awards in the individual
entry categories and 3 more awards in the Senior Portfolio category. The Gold Key
winners go on for the next round of judging at the national level in New York! The
recognition for individual student artists is a great honor and having artwork on display at
a well-known gallery is very prestigious.

The individual students receiving Gold Key Awards were Makenna Gaerte, Leslie
Hernandez, Jose Leyva, Matthew Lowman, Austin Bowell, and Michael Rowland. The
Silver Key winners were Emma Marshall, Jackson Moeller, Hannah Schultz, Abby
Wolkins, Austin Bowell, Kaitlin Kauffman, and Dezeray Miller. Also recognized with
Honorable Mention Awards and included in the exhibit were Morgan Hooks, Matthew
Lowman, Michael Rowland, Zeb Hernandez, Caitlin Kehler, Ian Peloza, Erin Peugh,
Abigail Seese, Jocelyn Shepherd, Ana Tlahuetl, and Austin Bowell with two.

In addition to the individual entries, the seniors in AP Studio Art also submitted
their complete portfolios for judging. The portfolio is a chance for senior students to pull
together their finest pieces and package them into a well-organized and thoughtful
presentation of their body of work. These are considered for scholarship applications,
entrance into fine art programs, and become half of their AP portfolio for college credit.
We are very proud to announce Zaya Henn as our Gold Key Portfolio winner, and also
congratulations to Austin Bowell and Zeb Hernandez who achieved Silver Key awards
for their portfolios. We are very proud of all of them for representing Warsaw so well in
our region.

The above students will receive special recognition at the awards presentation at
the University of Saint Francis on February 17th, and the students’ works will be on
display at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art until April 8 th . Congratulations WCHS Art
