Superintendent Weber advised that the District’s five-year accreditation review went very well. Also, the basketball season is underway with 36 boys and 22 girls (7-12) participating.
The wrestling program was discussed as the number of wrestlers in Wessington Springs and Woonsocket is down this year and Wolsey-Wessington has opted out of the co-op due to the fact that they have the numbers to support their own program now.
The football co-op meeting went well with more practices scheduled in Woonsocket for next year.
Principal Paula Lynch advised that we have a new Elementary Student/Practice Teacher and plans for the WEPC merry mixer day are being organized for next week.
December 16th will be a tutor day with enrichment activities scheduled for the elementary students that wish to attend.
