WCCS: Board updated on schools’ start

September 5, 2012

COLUMBIA CITY — With Whitley County Consolidated Schools back in session, Superintendent Dr. Pat O’Connor presented the Beginning of School Update.
According to O’Connor, the elementary schools reported a smooth opening that was both busy and productive with registration well-organized and open houses well-attended.
“Staff members dedicated the time to thoughtfully plan, organize and prepare the classrooms and establish procedure to welcome students and create a safe and orderly environment,” said O’Connor.
The first days of school at Indian Springs Middle School were also successful, according to O’Connor, as parents and teachers indicated their joy through positive e-mails.
“The building and grounds were in tip-top shape, as always,” said O’Connor. “Visitors are amazed that ISMS is going on its 17th year, thanks to Bill Helm and his crew.”
O’Connor said parents expressed their appreciation for the organization, communication and care the teachers gave the students.
“Smooth, supportive and clean are three words that describe the beginning of the 2012-13 school year for Columbia City High School,” said O’Connor. “The start of school was well organized and efficient, with students and staff clearly understanding the expectations and procedures.”
According to O’Connor, the custodial staff freshly waxed the floors with additions to chairs to decrease the amount of damage to the floors.
Eagle Tech Academy also opened its doors, for the second year, welcoming 105 new freshman to ETA.
