Question of the week | What's your favorite homecoming tradition, or what tradition should WHS add to homecoming?
Today we throwback to the Fall of 1982 for homecoming. The theme was "Endless Love" and the king and queen were Eddie Katt and Chris Berroth.

2021 Homecoming candidates answer questions about their time at WHS. The homecoming parade begins Friday at 1:30 p.m. with the pep rally downtown after. The crowning is at 6:30 with football vs. Troy at 7 p.m. The homecoming dance begins after the game until 11 p.m.
Schools are a place where students go to be educated. Kids go to school, they get information crammed into their little heads, they go home and cry. That is the way our forefathers intended it to be. Schools are completely entrusted to mold the minds of our youth, but some people believe the trust is being misplaced. As of late, concerned citizens across our country have been voicing their concerns regarding the teaching of Critical Race Theory.
On the twentieth anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attack we look back at how some Wabaunsee High School students commemorated the tragedy. A year after the September 11th attack, three FCCLA students decided that they wanted to create something to commemorate the men and women who lost their lives that day. Lesa Hajny, a member of that group, spoke about what the process to create that quilt was like.
This week, in honor of both FCCLA rush week and the 20th anniversary of 9/11, we look back to the 2002-03 FCCLA club. As part of a STAR event, students created an American flag quilt to remember 9/11. The flag, which still hangs in the commons today, features a square from every WHS student.

The cross country team opened up its season Saturday, running on a rather rainy morning in Silver Lake. For the girls team, freshman Payton Wurtz had a great opening run, taking 2nd place in her first high school meet with a time of 20:59. Junior Rebekah Stuhlsatz took 6th at 22:54. These two are looking to be a dynamic running duo — Stuhlsatz having state experience her freshman and sophomore years of high school already, placing 11th in 2019 and 14th in 2020. “I want to go to state this year, but I really want the whole team to go with me. I also want to crack the top-10 at state this year,” Stuhlsatz said.
Wabaunsee football is kicking off its season tonight with high expectations. Seniors Cade Oliver, Brayden Meseke, Caden Yonke, and Aiden Boeckman return a lot of experience to this squad, and plan to propel the team forward. “We are the leaders of the team; most of us have played for four years and know what we’ve got to do to be successful,” Meseke said. “It’s on us to hold the team and ourselves accountable.”
