Bruce Boguski to Speak at WES April 21

D.R.I.V.E.R test taking system explained in his book, The Testing Zone.

 

This special seminar will be held in order to share effective techniques that successfully allow students to dramatically raise their test scores by improving memory and retention, increasing creativity and learning and how to relax in pressure situations. 

The seminar is free and open to the public and filled with valuable information to help students become better performers in the classroom.  Come prepared to have fun while learning the following:

 

  • 2 relaxation exercises that reduce test anxiety immediately
  • 3 ways to instantly activate memory
  • 4 easy exercises that "wake up" the brain for added learning
  • 3 foods to avoid on test day that will destroy your efforts
  • The amazing secret that will make you twice as smart while studying!
  • How to use music and certain scents for memory and relaxation.
  • AND MUCH MORE!!!

From Mr. Steve Barr, Athletic Director

Wank Earns Academic All-Ohio:  Woodmore senior Allie Wank was one of 10 girls basketball players in Div. III to earn Academic All-Ohio honors as selected by a committee comprised of members of the Ohio High School Basketball Coaches Association.  There were 10 players selected in the four boys and girls divisions of play.  Wank, a 5-10 forward, averaged 14.6 points this season and 6.1 rebounds, both team highs, as the Wildcats finished the season 9-14 overall and 7-7 in the Northern Buckeye Conference.  Academically, Wank has a 4.0 GPA and will attend The Ohio State University to study nursing in the Scholars Program.  She would like to become a pediatric oncologist.  Critieria for selection to the Academic All-Ohio team includes such things as the player's GPA, ACT score, and class rank along with their basketball statistics.  A player must be a senior to make the team.

2013-14 Girls Div. III Academic All-Ohio Team:  Allie Wank (Woodmore), Alexandra Rice (Greeneview), Rachel Myers (Liberty-Benton), Hannah Miller and Kathryn Miller (Canton Central Catholic), Leanna Adkins (Oak Hill), Angie Mack (Miami East), Geena Gabriel (Pymatuning Valley), Emily Williams (Fredericktown), Courtney Putt (Garaway).

Baseball Fundraiser:  The Wildcats varsity baseball team will play Gibsonburg at Fifth Third Field on Sat., May 3, at 4 p.m.  In order to play the game at Fifth Third Field, each team is asked to sell vouchers to Mud Hens games this summer. The baseball team is currently selling those Mud Hen vouchers for $10 which can be redeemed at the Fifth Third Field box office for one ticket to any game this season, except opening day and playoffs.  If you are interested in purchasing a Mud Hens voucher, contact any member of the high school baseball team or call the high school office at (419) 862-2721.
