Watt's Up


Welcome Back!

I hope that everyone had a relaxing vacation. Santa was good to the Watt children and the time off was enjoyable.

Happy New Year!

Jeanette will be taking leave beginning today through March. At this point, David will be taking off this week.

Lucy Rupe will cover for both David and Jeanette. Her email address is lucyrupe@gmail.com if you need to email her.

Report Cards

Report Cards are due on Wednesday. Please make every effort to get any and all new grades entered into QuickSchools by Wednesday.

We will mail report cards on Friday.

New Program

We have new program using our program after school on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm.

  • WorkForce Development has placed an Out of School JAG Program for students living in Middlebury and Goshen.

  • Jenn Doty is the JAG Specialist in charge of the JAG classes.

  • Horizon Education Alliance will be providing an instructor to teach high school equivalency coursework.

  • The program will meet in lab one for all classes.

Note - These are NOT Merit students and they are residents of Goshen or Middlebury. Elkhart residents will attend courses in Elkhart. I am not in charge of this program; however, I am able to coordinate meetings with the student, parent, and appropriate JAG Specialist.

Homebound Students

Homebound students will begin meeting in lab three Monday - Thursday from 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm.

Nancy Peters will work with the students every day until Merit on the Move begins at GHS in February. At that point, Nancy will work with homebound students on Monday and Tuesday and Pete will work with students on Wednesday and Thursday.
