WAHS Recognized with Top Honors at
FBLA National Leadership Conference in Chicago

More than 8,500 of America's best and brightest high school students traveled to the Windy City to Step Up to the Challenge as they showcased their talents as future business leaders and vied for the opportunity to win more than $175,000 in cash awards.

Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda (FBLA-PBL), held its FBLA National Leadership Conference (NLC) in Chicago from June 29th to July 2nd. Participants from across the United States attended this exciting conference to enhance their business skills, expand their networks, and participate in more than 55 business and business-related competitive events.

Anne Monte received national recognition at the FBLA Awards of Excellence Program on July 2. Monte competed in Electronic Career Portfolio and brought home 4th place. An electronic career portfolio is a purposeful collection of work that tells the story of an applicant including achievements, growth, vision, reflection, skills, experience, education, training, and career goals. For this event, Monte created a website to give the judges a complete picture of who she is. At NLC, Monte had to present that website (and all of her accomplishments) to the judges in a seven minute presentation, followed by a question and answer period of three minutes.

Zoe Cykosky from Wallenpaupack Area High School in Hawley, PA, also received national recognition at the FBLA Awards of Excellence Program on July 2. Cykosky competed in Sales Presentation and brought home 2nd place. Cykosky demonstrated proficiency in selling techniques, merchandise knowledge, as well as, presenting the Babolat Aero Pro Drive Tennis Racket to customers (who, essentially, were the judges).

"What a terrific way to jump start the summer--Sarah Smith (Co-Adviser) and I got to spend a week in Chicago with four incredible students. (In addition to Monte and Cykosky, Katlyn Carr, and Maram Abdallah also qualified for NLC, but did not advance to the finals). Staying on the Magnificent Mile really allowed us to experience the city; we walked everywhere and saw everything. Chicago is a beautiful city with amazing architecture and great history. Ending the Conference with two of our four in the Top 5 is still incomprehensible, and when one of the two is your daughter, it takes it to another level.

None of our FBLA progress would be possible without the unending support of our Wallenpaupack Area School District. Experiences and opportunities, such as these, impact the students for the rest of their lives. We are so lucky that our entire community realizes that and continues to back us, every step of the way" said Melissa Monte, Co-Adviser of WAHS FBLA.

The awards were part of a comprehensive national competitive events program sponsored by FBLA-PBL that recognizes and rewards excellence in a broad range of business and career-related areas. For many students, the competitive events are the capstone activity of their academic careers. For Anne Monte (member of the WAHS Class of 2015) this could be not more relevant; FBLA played a major part of Monte's senior year at WAHS. Monte was President of the WAHS FBLA Chapter for the 2014-2015 school year, Region 22 Secretary for the 2014-2015 school year, and qualified (placing first at PA State Leadership Conference in Electronic Career Portfolio) for 2015 NLC.

"I could not be happier with my senior year involvement with FBLA; I just can't believe it is all over. I had no idea whether I qualified for the finals in my event; I was against 95 of the best, from around the entire country. To finish fourth in an event at Nationals is such an amazing way to end my high school career. I am headed to pursue a major of sports marketing at Saint Joseph's University, in Philadelphia, next month. They do not currently have a chapter of PBL (Phi Beta Lambda - the collegiate level of FBLA), but I might be able to change that when I get down there."

In addition to the competitions, students immersed themselves in educational workshops, visited an information-packed exhibit hall, and attended motivational keynotes on a broad range of business topics.

Notice Regarding Student Insurance - Updated for 2015-2016!

Please be advised that it is the responsibility of the parents/guardians, in the event of a student accident, to provide for accidental injury expenses either through insurance or cash payment to health care providers. For this reason, the School District would like to make you aware of the availability of a low cost, standard school approved insurance policy.

The School District does not provide insurance coverage for students. If you do not have insurance or the financial ability to cover potential injury expenses, we encourage you to review this Student Accident Insurance document.

If you choose to purchase insurance through this program, please have your child return the completed insurance form with your payment to their school and it will be forwarded to the insurance company to process.

We hope this program can be a valuable service for you and your family.

Pennsylvania School Performance Profile Overview

The Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) has made significant changes in how student achievement is being reported and calculated for schools and districts in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. PDE has released what is known as the Pennsylvania School Performance Profile. The public site (http://www.paschoolperformance.org) provides an academic performance score for public schools in the state. The performance score is designed with several purposes in mind:

  • To inform the public of school performance;
  • To provide a building level score for educators as part of their evaluation system;
  • To allow the public to compare schools across the state;
  • To give schools a methodology to analyze their strengths and needs.

While public schools across the states have previously received designations under No Child Left Behind, schools will now receive a performance score based upon many data points. Test scores, progress in closing achievement gaps, and degree of student growth over time are factored into the scoring while other identifiers of high achieving schools are also considered: graduation, promotion, and attendance rates as well as evidence of offering rigorous courses factor into the calculation. Schools may also earn extra points beyond the 100 point scoring system for those students who have earned advanced scores of the state, industry, and Advanced Placement exams.

In addition to the scoring aspect of the site, the public can compare schools across the state. For schools, the site also offers supports for schools to consider as they identify needs in their academic profile. Administrators and staff in our district have begun to review the data.

Wallenpaupack Gifted Parents Association

The Wallenpaupack Gifted Parents Association offers supplemental academic programs which are open to all students in the Wallenpaupack Area School District at either no charge or at minimal cost.
