WRV to Launch New After School Program in 21-22
Program to Address Learning Recovery and Homework Help
WRV recently offered parents a survey to see what kind of interest there might be in such a program and well over seventy percent of our parents said they would support their student in utilizing the extra academic help. This pandemic has caused some disruption in student learning, but all students are able to attend the program as necessary. We believe this will be a strong option for students to keep moving forward academically.
Wolverine Enterprises LLC Earns Statewide Attention
WRV Receives Conexus Internship Funds; Students to Receive Checks in July
"I am so proud of our teaching staff for being able to implement such an innovative program in the middle of a pandemic. The students have really taken ownership with product design and production. I believe this program has amazing potential to develop the local talent and help launch new business efforts in Greene County down the road," states superintendent, Dr. Bob Hacker.
Program Director, Katelyn Thomas recently reported to the Board of Education that WRV has received notification from Conexus, a manufacturing benefactor out of Indianapolis, that it has received $12,000 in internship funds to pay students for their experiences in the program. Students will receive checks in July for their hard work during the Spring semester with some students working into the summer.
We congratulate the 2020-21 student CEO Edan Martin and student CFO Katryna Zimmerly for helping to lead the program in its first year. Wolverine Enterprises has built industry partnerships to date with Owen County State Bank, Metal Technologies of Bloomfield, and BlueBay Bakery in Bloomington and will be looking to further partner with businesses as we gain experience. The program was developed through a Ready Schools grant from the Regional Opportunity Initiative Inc. and other grant help from the Indiana Department of Education and the Greene County Community Foundation.
If patrons are interested in products and services or in helping out a particular business, please contact Katelyn Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
WRV WILL offer Virtual Education Opportunities into 2021-22
If this is a program you are interested in, please contact the building principal:

WRVSD does believe that students learn best when in-person learning can take place between the teacher and student.
