On February 10th and 11th, two hard working individuals took part in the Tri-State Honor’s Festival held at UW Platteville. Amber J (clarinet) and Dani W (baritone saxophone) were accepted this year to represent Wonewoc-Center in this wonderful event. We arrived on Friday morning, the girls auditioned for where they will be placed in the band. Once they were seated, the two girls rehearsed with world famous composer, Mark Camphouse for two days which concluded with an amazing performance on Saturday, February 11th. When asked about their experience, both girls said that it was a great time and are excited to find out if they made it back into the band for next year!

BECOME AN OFFICIAL
BECOME AN OFFICIAL
By Mr. Needham
For this year’s Boys and Girls Basketball tournament, the WIAA is going to 3 person officiating crews. Even next year, many conferences around the state will be going to 3 person crews. Some will say that there is a shortage of boys and girls basketball officials in the state. However, I disagree with this. For many years, I have noticed many people in the stands that think that they’re officials, making calls from the comfort of their seats and arguing with every call an official makes that doesn’t go their team’s way. If you think it is easy, join them! All you have to do is go to the WIAA website and at the bottom click “Become an Official.” Fill out the necessary paperwork, pay your dues, take the test and next year you can be out there doing some games. The best part of being a licensed official, when you are actually out there on the court officiating a game, you get paid!! So please, those of you that are “bleacher” officials, go to the WIAA website, and follow all the necessary steps to become a licensed official for the WIAA. I look forward to seeing you out on the court next year!
with Mr. Wong

Snow Make-up Days
Snow Day Make-Up
This winter we seem to be struggling getting a full week of school in. As of today, January 30, 2017 we have had 4 snow/ice days. In addition a few late starts and early releases. Because of the time missed our original school calendar will be changing.
We have had the following days called off because of weather conditions: January 3, January 16 and 17, and January 25.
Students will not be making up January 3, 2017. This day will be forgiven.
The following days were presently listed as in-service days, and students did not need to attend school. These day will now become regular student days. Students should plan on attending school on February 20, March 10 and March 13.
The last day of school for students is still be planned as June 2, 2017.
Teachers will be adding June 6, 7, and 8th as in-service days.

Grades 6th - 12th
Wonewoc-Center School District will be hosting a career fair for students in grades 6-12 as part of our Academic and Career planning initiative. We are looking for area businesses and former graduates to come share their story about what they do, how they got there and why these young students should be looking at your field! Academic and Career planning is about helping our students match their abilities with their interests and select a post-high school path that is right for them. Then we want to help them get there. We are interested in exposing students to all forms of careers and educational backgrounds; military, workforce, apprenticeships, certificates, two-year degrees, 4-year degrees, master's degrees, doctoral degrees! We are looking for engaging, hands-on displays to take part in our career fair. If you are interested in helping our youth find their niche, please contact Mrs. Miller at Wonewoc-Center Schools at email@example.com or 608-464-3165 ext. 173.
