Superintendent's Message

Chad Shawger

West Muskingum Community,
     As we head into the New Year, it seems like a great time to reflect on everything that has happened at West Muskingum since we started school.
     We were able to hire a great group of new staff members this summer to ensure our students have the best experience possible at West Muskingum.
     We are thankful for all our teachers and we are very appreciative of our support staff that goes above and beyond to provide our students everything they need. These dedicated employees often go unnoticed by the general public, but they are certainly essential to the smooth operation of the district. So, a big thank you to the cooks, custodians, secretaries, para pros and bus drivers that make every day possible at West Muskingum Schools!
     West Muskingum High School 2021 graduate Caden Keck was named the national winner in the area of Agricultural Mechanics-Repair and Maintenance Placement! Congratulations Caden, National Champion!
     It was quite a fall in athletics on the hill.  A few of the highlights included:
     The boys golf team and girls soccer teams won MVL titles.
     The football team made history as they not only made the playoffs for the fifth time in school history, but won the school’s first ever playoff game in dramatic fashion with a walk off 2-point conversion in overtime. The three hour ride home didn’t seem quite so long after that win!  The team ended the season with a 9-3 record.
     Individually, many of our students were recognized with league, district and state awards. The rewards of hard work are certainly being reaped on the hill.
     We are excited to see what the rest of the winter season has in store as all of our teams have promising seasons underway.
     The band and choir have been outstanding and performed many times throughout the fall and winter.
     It has certainly been a great first semester at West Muskingum and we look forward to all the continued growth that we are seeing with our students.
     We wish all Tornadoes a Happy New Year!
