Waldron’s winter sports seasons are underway. The girls basketball team returns everyone from a team that finished the 5-17 a year ago. This season Waldron has a new head coach, Anthony Thomas, who has previously coached girls basketball at various levels for Waldron. Key returnees are juniors Morgan Wood (15.8 points per game), Hannah Sullivan (7.1 points per game, Abby Adams (7.4 points per game) and Victoria Shaw (11.4 points per game). The Lady Mohawks have started the season off with a 2-1 start, beating Arlington and Central Christian and losing a close game to Southwestern.
The boys basketball team graduated several of the leading scorers from last year’s team and will look to three seniors and several underclassmen to fill the scoring void. New head coach Will Staal anticipates seniors Cole Adams and Cameron Wells, along with sophomore Parker Huffman and freshman Tyler Bowlby will step up and fill key roles for the team. The Mohawks will open their season at home against Christel House Academy on Tuesday, November 21st.
The varsity gymnastics team is competing for their third consecutive year. Janice Huntsman will take over the reins for her second season as head coach. Both of last year’s gymnasts, Erika Huntsman and Taylor Fischer will represent Waldron this season. They will follow Shelbyville’s regular season schedule and compete at the Connersville Sectional at the end of the season. The girls have showed great improvement over the past two seasons and look for an opportunity to move further into the post-season tournament this year.
We would like to welcome our new School Nurse, Erin Shuttleworh. Erin is a Morristown graduate and we feel blessed to have her with us. She is going to fit right in and do an excellent job! Welcome to our family, Erin!

- Parents can attend parent/teacher conferences to make sure that parents, teachers and students are all on the same page
- Parents can volunteer in the classroom or building
- Parents can help the teacher by letting them know about things happening at home
- Teachers and parents can work as a team to provide the best for students

With the start of school comes the anticipation of another successful and enjoyable school year. The key to making this happen is great communication. To help with the communication, we are going to be doing three things this year. First, we will continue to use Social Media to promote the great things being accomplished by our students, teachers, and school. Second, our administrators will be reaching out to all families with phone calls home. We will be calling families throughout the school year to see how things are going and if there is anything we can help with. Finally, I will have a webpage on the Corporation Website that I will update frequently with important announcements of upcoming events and deadlines.
You as parents can help us by stopping by the school, calling, or emailing us with questions, concerns, or issues. Many times minor issues or concerns grow into bigger issues because they were not reported or brought to our attention. We are all asking for your help in creating an atmosphere of timely and open communication between parents and the school. Together we can create a safe and positive school environment, where are student can have an enjoyable and worthwhile educational experience.
