Parent Education - Social Media Safety

During the 2018-2019 school year Director of Technology Rebecca Furlong partnered with the All City PTO to bring Social Media Expert Josh Ochs to Wooster. This event included all-school assemblies for middle and high school students and an evening event for parents and community. The event was on Monday, March 4, 2019 at 6:00 PM in the Wooster High School Performing Arts Center

Reading Under the Lights

The evening is built to target Wooster Youth in grades K-6 to encourage student participation in summer reading. So often reading reduces in the summer months and in turn causes what is referred to as the "Summer Slide." Reading Under the Lights is a free family-friendly, summer kick-off reading event, which includes free books, food, library card access and sign up, and reading with celebrities. A good time was had by all at the most recent Reading Under the Lights held on May 10, 2019 at Maurer Field.

Window Wonderland

Horse drawn carriage rides, beautifully decorated storefront windows, Santa descending from the rooftop, are just a few of the magical attractions at Downtown Wooster stores and restaurants that make Window Wonderland a treasured event. As Downtown Wooster transforms into a winter wonderland, join us at The Board of Education Office and write your holiday cards to teachers, friends, relatives, nursing home residents - even Santa! This free family event will be held on Friday, November 22, 2019 at 7:00 PM.

Safety & Security Summit

The Wooster City School District Board of Education and members of the District Safety and Security Committee will host a panel discussion on Wednesday, February 20, 2019 at 6:00 PM in the WHS Performing Arts Center (PAC).
