The Wilson Central FFA Swine Show Team had the most participation ever, despite the pandemic. Not only was it our largest group to show, we had our most successful year to date. At our State Show Regan Black became our first ever Swine Premier Exhibitor. The premier exhibitor is awarded to the individual with the highest cumulative score from skillathon, showmanship, and class placing. As a result of this she was awarded a $1000 scholarship. We exhibited at four different shows with highlights listed below.

It will begin at 12:15 in the main gym and they will be back in 7th period by 1:15. The students will be spread out in the main gym bleachers. If you don't want your student to participate due to the number of students, please send a parent note for the homeroom teacher.
On Thursday we will swap lunch periods. Juniors and Seniors will go to lunch first and then freshman and sophomores during the second lunch. The freshman and sophomores who eat in the balcony bleachers will go to the small gym this day only.

Graduation will be at Wilson Central May 29th at 1pm. If by chance we have rain it would be possible to delay until that evening. We will have the ceremony on the football field to social distance as possible. I do not know the specifics of limitations at this time, but at the very least I will promote each graduate having at least 4 guests. I will keep you all updated.
Prom is scheduled for April 24th at Wilson Central for seniors only this year to limit contact. More details to come, but each senior will be allowed along with their date.
Alternate Schedule when we have a four day week with blocks. Students will always start the week with blocks 1-4.

Tuesday Blocks 5-8
Wednesday Blocks 1-4

On March 16th all juniors will be taking the ACT and all sophomores will be taking the Pareto ACT practice test. Freshman and Seniors will not report to school, but assignments to complete at home. Virtual Learning students will be taking their ACT and the ATC (central office) was the lasted information. Look for communication from the VLP.
Juniors and Sophomores will be able to leave at the conclusion of testing provided they have transportation and provide a note to their testing teacher. Buses will run a normal schedule that day. If a student rides a bus they will remain at school with their homeroom teacher.
Student Online Interest Inventory:
This will be done online instead of being completed in a pre-bubbling session. Students will complete this using the MyACT website. More information and directions will come soon.

Thank you for the support!
Welcome Back, just a couple reminders.
With all students back at school 5 days a week, teachers will be developing new seating charts. We will spread students out as much as possible depending on the number of students in the classroom.
We will have tables set up in the grand hallway and open up the balcony bleachers to provide more space during lunch. We have also added to time to lunch in order to accommodate the serving time with more students. Students will be allowed to sit with whoever they choose; we only ask that students sit at that table/area with the same group of students daily. This is to help us trace close contact Covid cases. We will give students a couple days to "find their spot." I'll make announcements to students this week.
We will still be doing the temp checks upon arrival (8:15) and ask students to go directly to the classroom. The drop off and pick-up locations have not changed. Student drivers and parents please be patient this first week with everyone back, the lines will be longer this week due to more students.
Dismissal; only those students with a parking pass are allowed to dismiss at 3:40, all other students are to remain in the classroom until the bell at 3:45. This is to help minimize student contact in the hallways after school.
Students and teachers are expected to wear masks in the classroom and hallways. Any student that cannot wear a mask needs to fill out the paperwork with nurse Harris.
Weekly Learning Plans: We will continue to send a weekly plan to students on Monday for the remainder of the year.
The Family Resource Center is partnering with Lebanon Special School District and Homeland Security Investigations for this online safety event for parents/guardians/faculty members. The speaker stressed to emphasize that the content is not for students. It is for parents/guardians/faculty only. Viewing is available for 300 and the Zoom information is on the flyer.
Attached is the bell schedule. Any four day week for the remainder of the year will forfeit the Monday schedule. If we are asynchronous or out of school on a Friday then we will begin Monday with Blue Day (blocks 1-4.) We will always alternate days with blocks 1-4 and 5-8.
We have asynchronous days for students or no school on the following dates:
We will do our best to keep the students safe from Covid while at school. If we have to make any changes to plans or procedures I will communicate those asap. We look forward to the students being back, I'm sure it will be good for kids to see all their friends and have a normal daily routine.

Parents and Students
I'm sure you have heard that high school students in Wilson County will return to traditional in-person school starting Feb. 22nd. This means all students are required to be in attendance Monday through Friday unless they are part of the Virtual School. I will be sending parents and students updated on safety protocols next week; specifically lunch.
National Honor Society invitations were sent to students during homeroom this week. These are time-sensitive, so if your student received one, PLEASE get them completed and request teacher recommendations as soon as possible.

Congratulations to the WCHS Winter Guard!
Our Winter Guard had their first competition this past Saturday and earned a 3rd Place finish in the SRA Class at the Mt. Juliet Winter Guard Bash with their 2021 show, “Dreams.” It was wonderful to get to see them compete again as their 2020 season was cut short due to COVID.
Wildcat Excellence for January
Academics- Anshu Thapa
“Anshu is rocking senior year in spite of the pandemic. She works hard and it shows.”
“Anshu works hard in Nursing Education and motivates her classmates to work harder and pushes them to learn the material. She is enthusiastic and works hard on learning skills.”
Arts- Jeffery (Michael) Reese
“Michael has been working independently on learning painting techniques. He is repeating Art 3 and at the beginning of the semester, I had him propose a plan to carry him throughout the year. He chose to learn techniques from Bob Ross' videos. He is sending me his pictures and, OH BOY!!! They are amazing. He has grown SO MUCH! That's a silver lining to this wonky schedule!”
Athletics- Cole Fort
“Cole is undefeated and has helped the team to a 27-0 season record so far. Cole is 29-0.”
Service- Dustin Chamberlain
“Dustin does a fantastic job with parking lot patrol. He holds everyone accountable and takes his job very seriously!”
“She has been by far my favorite teacher in High school because she connects with her students on a personal level and treats them with respect no matter their background.”
“She's never in a bad mood and tries to make fun activities for us even with the circumstances of a pandemic, having never met our "actual" teacher, and tired students.”
“She strives to make sure we do our best and always helps in times of need.”
“She is always there for everyone.”
“She is really nice.”
“She is able to relate to everyone in her class. I have experienced this personally and with my fellow classmates as well. She stops what she is doing and lends an ear to hear you out. Whenever I had a bad day I always stop by between classes to talk to her for a few minutes. In conclusion, Mrs. Puza should be a teacher of the month.”
Mary goes above and beyond every single day. She cares about the students and wants to support them while also holding them accountable. She is such a blessing!

I know a Monday for pictures is not ideal, but on the hybrid schedule, we would have to ask students to come on a day they are not scheduled anyways. We do hybrid to have smaller amounts of students in classes and on campus. Doing pictures on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday would also cause students to miss valuable instruction time. By doing it on a Monday, students can be in and out in 5-10 minutes and will not have to miss class time or be in large crowds.
Spring Sports Pictures are Monday, February 8th.
The sports and times are as follows - Please show up at least 10 minutes early as we are on a schedule and cannot wait!
9:30 – Swim – Large Gym
10:00 – Track/Field on the track
10:00 – Tennis on the tennis court
11:15 – Boys Soccer on the soccer field
11:15 – Lacrosse on the football field
12:30 – Baseball on the field
12:30 – Softball on the field
