 Warsaw High students reached out to the elementary, middle school and entire Warsaw community as they involved them through assemblies and the Homecoming parade.

 One of the many events that happened during the week of Homecoming was mini assemblies. Friday morning, high school students and coaches traveled to elementary schools to connect with the other schools in the district.

  “ Mini assemblies was thought up by Mr. Luebbert and myself about three years or so ago when we were trying to figure out how to include the elementary schools,” art teacher and student council adviser Jennifer Greene said.

  Mini assemblies include selected students from each fall sport teams talking a little about the season. It also includes the drumline playing and going through and high- fiving the kids.

  “I was at the mini assemblies to introduce and talk about the cross country team,” senior Dallas Larson said.

  Another purpose of the mini assembly’s are to get the elementary students excited for homecoming.

 “ We really wanted to get the elementary students excited to be apart of Homecoming,” Greene said.   

  Students find the kids getting very excited when the younger kids see them. Which causes them to say some cute things.

  “ All the kids thought I was some super hero in a cheer uniform,” senior Hannah Chapman said.

  Some of the children were even getting distracted by the different items the high schoolers brought.

  “ All the kids just stared at my drum the whole time,” junior Kamryn Yach said.

  Mini assembly’s have now come one of the many different events that happens during the week of homecoming.

  I really hope that the assembly’s keep going,” Larson said.
