  • Sixth Grade Students Rewarded for Effort

    Posted by Allison Wygal on 2/13/2019 1:00:00 AM

    On Friday, February 8th, sixth grade teachers threw a party honoring students who had no missing or late assignments for the entire second nine weeks. Students selected for the party enjoyed a game room complete with board games, a craft room, and art projects. They were honored with a hot chocolate bar where they were able to customize their orders in personal, decorated cups and a dessert and snack buffet. The sixth grade teachers collaborated with Mrs. Smith’s MRDD class, who provided the menus and servers for the event. Taran Logwood (pictured), sixth grader honored at the event, said, “It’s nice the be recognized for effort, and the food is great too!” The afternoon was a wonderful, collaborative event. Congratulations to these students for their hard work, and doing their Tiger best!

  • WL-S Choir/Band Solo and Ensemble Students Excel

    Posted by Allison Wygal on 2/12/2019 2:00:00 AM

    West Liberty-Salem’s Music Department had an exciting weekend in the OMEA District XI Solo and Ensemble Adjudicated Event held at West Milton High School. Both Mr. Fannin, Band Director, and Brice Henry, Choir Director, had all students place either first or second in their respective events. This event is an important part of a student’s musical training and development as it exposes them to classical and chamber music. Students performed either alone or in their ensemble in front of a group pf spectators and a judge, and their performance’s are rated on a 1-5 scale, with one being Superior. The judge rates the performer’s competency in a number of musical elements including tone, intonation, and rhythmic accuracy to name a few.

    Students, who received Superior Ratings, are Tenor/Bass Ensemble-Hayden Hostetler, Jaison Council, and Michael Farquharson, vocal soloists, Jessie Boy, Dylan Domachowski, Anna Louden, Trumpet Trio-Lauren Fowler, Isaac Ridley, and Noah Cline, and piano soloist, Andy Marr.

    Students receiving an Excellent Rating include Vocal Soloists Avalon Roberts and Ashley Pratt, and French Horn Soloist, Andy Marr.

    It was an exceptional effort by all students and their directors. Please take a moment to congratulate these students on representing the WL-S Music Department well!

  • Sixth Graders travel back in time to present on Ancient Egypt

    Posted by Allison Wygal on 2/5/2019 1:00:00 AM

    Students in Mr. Barhorst’s sixth grade Social Studies class took a trip to Ancient Egypt this week to capstone weeks of research and hard work on the subject. Students were tasked with choosing a topic from the Ancient Egyptian period, creating a timeline, a Venn Diagram, and review questions for their class. Many created a power point, poster or even dressed in character for creative presentations! Pictured below are Sophia Holland, who got into character to present Bastet, goddess of fire, cats, the home and women, Sam Cook-Finnegan with the study of Hieroglyphics, and Shyanne McClintick, who presented on Ancient Egyptian Women. Great job to the sixth graders for awesome presentations this week!
