    From WCSD to World Series 2014

    The mission of the Wappingers Central School District is to empower all of our students with the competencies and confidence to challenge themselves, to pursue their passions, and to realize their potential while growing as responsible members of their community.
    Joe Panik has pursued his passion!
    Today we congratulate Joe Panik and his teammates on their World Series win.
    Since his days as a student in our District, Joe has pursued his passion for baseball through hard work and determination. Hopefully his dedication to baseball and academics serves as an inspiration to all of the current and future students of the WCSD.
