WHS and McCaskey Exchange Day

WHS and McCaskey Exchange Day


On May 30, 2017, Warwick High School welcomed 27 McCaskey High School students for an exchange day. Earlier this school year, 27 students from Warwick HS visited McCaskey High School as part of a revitalized exchange program designed to strengthen and build student leadership skills and eliminate unfounded biases and stereotypes.

During the first exchange held at McCaskey HS earlier this year, both groups of students enjoyed the visit so much that they wanted to get back together again this school year. Students from both schools said they’d formed bonds and friendships with members of the other school and were excited to get together again.

This time McCaskey students would visit Warwick High School.

When the McCaskey students arrived, the Warwick students greeted them wearing t-shirts with the slogan “Together We Can Build the Knowledge, Skills and Values needed for our future" and banners and signs were hanging in the school lobby.

   


The day was a great opportunity to share student similarities and strengths. The day began with a light breakfast and a tour of the high school. Although the weather was a bit rainy, the Warwick students and their teachers led the McCaskey students on an informative walking tour of downtown Lititz before gathering together in Lititz Springs Park for a pizza lunch.



Warwick High School Principal Mrs. Kristy Szobocsan said that the two exchanges have forged great starts to friendships and have helped the students see how similar they all are. 

The Warwick/McCaskey high school exchange program is expected to be an annual event.
