Spring may not seem like it is right around the corner, but believe it or not it is quickly approaching. With the weather hopefully taking a turn toward warmer temperatures soon the community is prepping to offer many events to help entertain and excite.

Spring is right around the corner, and with that will come several events at Wapakoneta City Schools. Below is a list that details many of these events, broken down by school.
