Monday was Martin Luther King Jr. day, which is great because we didn’t have school, but it’s also great because we got to commemorate a great man. Wabaunsee, like most schools in the area, observes the holiday, and several teachers include King’s works in their curriculum, but general knowledge of King’s legacy is still often insufficient.
USD 329 started streaming board meetings along with other school events in spring of 2020, following the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. While this practice began because of COVID-19, we are very thankful that it has continued and hope that it stays that way into the future.

What should the next pep club theme be for the next home game? In honor of Halloween, what is the most scared you’ve ever been? The government class is currently proposing bills. What is one thing you think should change at WHS?
This is in response to the October 7 editorial “Destructive behavior reflects poorly on entire student body” that was published in the Wabaunsee High School student newspaper, The Charger.
