Today on Throwback Thursday we jump to 2007 to take a look at the Future Business Leaders of America club. The club had eleven members qualify for State, where three placed second in the Current Events Relay team event. This year, thirteen FBLA members competed at District Competition and twelve qualified for the State Competition... Continue Reading →
FCCLA students recently participated in district elections and STAR Event competitions. Two students ran for district offices this year. Freshman Annie Wright was elected as the alternate Vice President of STAR Events and sophomore Kaelyn Conrad is the District D Vice President of Public Relations. Conrad’s new responsibilities include running the district’s Instagram page as well as writing monthly newsletters.
Here at Wabaunsee High, you may think that we are a very supportive community to all of the many activities offered here, but that is not the case. Some activities garner a large fan base, such as the volleyball team and the basketball teams, whereas some activities become altogether forgotten by the greater part of the student body and surrounding community — specifically the wrestling team. While the wrestling team may only boast six members, what they lack in numbers, they make up for in might. Just this past weekend, three of the six members qualified for the state tournament. The sad part of this joyous occasion was the fact that, aside from direct family members, there were no spectators in Wabaunsee’s fan club. This is a little concerning considering the fact that the regional tournament was held in Council Grove, which is a short drive compared to many of the trips that other athletic teams travel for postseason competitions.
Juniors Eli Mumpower, Derek Wallin and Alex Warner all managed to punch their tickets to the State Tournament after competing in a tough regional at Council Grove.
For this week's Throwback Thursday, we step back to 2012 and take a look at the Charger wrestling team, which wrestled at Council Grove for Regionals. Senior TJ Setter finished 2nd, qualifying to the state tournament. The current wrestlers also travel to Council Grove tomorrow to compete at Regionals, with hopes of going on to... Continue Reading →

A large number of Wabaunsee students compete in school-sponsored sports, but only a select group compete in competitive, traveling, or club sports. Club sports give athletes the opportunity to improve skills in the off-season, play in front of college scouts, and let talented, small-school players compete against larger teams. “You will be able to see the difference in players. These kids are able to play basketball longer, which builds their basketball IQ. From [Spradling Skills Academy, SSA] they are getting a lot of information from very good coaches that played in college,” head boys’ basketball coach Christian Ulsaker said.
To whom this may concern. Building a K-12 new school would be great, providing it is not built in Alma. Doing so would not unify the district — it would pull it further apart. Doing so would cause more dislike because this is not USD 329 Alma, it is USD 329 Maple Hill, Paxico, Mcfarland and Alma. Alma has never lost a school, has never had to bus young children down the road. They get to keep it all.
At the Oscars Sunday, the South Korean movie “Parasite” won best picture. A movie wins best picture every year, but what’s special about “Parasite” is that it’s entirely in Korean. It’s the first non-English language to ever win best picture. “Parasite” also took home awards for best original screenplay, best international film and best director. The Oscar’s recognition of a film like this is a reminder that we don’t have to understand the language of a movie to enjoy it and take meaning from it.
