WCHS B205’s Warrior Way Service Project! A huge shout out to Mr. Phillips B205 class for assembling care packages for individuals in need. They identified a place with a need, brainstormed how to help, made contact with them, and organized themselves into groups to complete the tasks. "Before arriving, half the class donated non- perishable food items and the other half raised over $375 through an ice cream and cotton Candy sale during lunch, which allowed us to donate a huge amount of toiletries for the care packs", stated Mr. Phillips. The class also wrote short notes of encouragement ahead of time to put into the packages. They also sorted clothing for the missions “store” and finally set out donated items for their “Great Giveaway Event” "I was so extremely impressed with these students they worked their butts off while they were there and showed a lot of kindness by caring about what they were doing"
"Tight Tech T-shirts!" The Tech Warrior class received t-shirts from sponsorship and continued support of Clark Pleasant Schools from Innovative Casting Technologies. Thank You!!!

1-Act Play TONIGHT! This is just a reminder that WCHS theatre students are putting on a one act play TONIGHT at 6:30 pm. Tickets are only $5, and proceeds will help us pay for sets and costumes for our upcoming musical! Here's a quick summary of the show, in case you're curious: "The field of grass believes in uniformity. Lovely rows of blades all the same height. Lovely rows of blades exhibiting standard behavior of green grass. Nothing stands in the way of their orderly life. Until they wake up one morning to see a yellow dandelion in their midst. Sunny (that’s the dandelion) is bright and warm and just wants to be friends. The field wants nothing to do with her nonstandard, non-green ways. A dandelion will turn their orderly way of life upside-down. A dandelion must be destroyed. Isn’t that what you do when something is different?" This play is family friendly, and should only last an hour, so a perfect night out if you have little ones at home! You can pre-order your tickets here: https://our.show/whiteland-community-high-school/sunny
Clark-Pleasant Community School Corporation recognizes March as Irish-American History Month. Did You Know 31.5 million or 9.5% U.S. residents claimed Irish ancestry in 2021? Irish-American Heritage Month was first celebrated by proclamation of the President in 1991. It seemed natural to choose March because Saint Patrick's Day falls on March 17th. The month-long recognition highlights the contributions that Irish immigrants and their descendants have made to U.S. society. Originally a religious holiday to honor St. Patrick, who introduced Christianity to Ireland in the 5th century, St. Patrick’s Day has evolved into a celebration of all things Irish. The world’s first St. Patrick’s Day parade occurred on March 17, 1762, in New York City, featuring Irish soldiers who served in the English military. Fun Ways to celebrate Irish Heritage: Learn the holiday’s origins Research interesting facts about Irish castles and history Plant shamrock seeds Read Irish fairytales Google famous Irish Americans Learn and sing an Irish folk song Learn a beginner Irish step dancing routine Decorate shamrock cookies Learn some Gaelic words Take a virtual field trip to Ireland Go to a Saint Patrick’s Day parade
