Some of our Warren G. Harding students in our Transition to Work Program began working this week at Goodwill in Warren. They are gaining valuable work skills in a real world environment to better prepare them for life after high school. We are excited to start this new chapter of community engagement with our students and staff! We look forward to this new partnership with Goodwill and to adding more work sites in the future!
The 2019 YSU English Festival hosted approximately 1,000 students from across NE Ohio and Western Pennsylvania. Students from WGH enjoyed a day of literary discussions, activities, and competitions focused around the 7 books that they have read throughout this school year. The Guest lectures were Steve Sheinkin and Neal Shusterman. WGH students brought home three prizes including books, t-shirts, pins and water bottles. Also, may of our students got autographs from the visiting authors!

Thank you to all the brave and slightly crazy polar bears who braved the storm and cold temperatures to participate in the 2019 Polar Plunge at Mosquito Lake. Also thank you to those who made cash donations, purchased cookie trays & t-shirts and/or enjoyed the 1st Annual Chili Cook Off.
The Polar Plunge event raises money for Special Olympics in our area. This was our third year as the Raider Freeze team and each year, thanks to you, we break our personal goals for number of participants and donations. This year we had 44 team members and our donation goal was $500 which we surpassed with a still growing contribution of $3,585! The
Raider Freeze Team included WGH students, staff throughout the district, friends and family and our Students, and Resource Officers. We’d like to thank, Linda Trisler, honorary member, for designing and making our team shirts. The team is already planning for next year’s plunge. Consider joining.
