consensus on regina page[edit]

how do i get it so that the principal's name is back on the infobox, which i believe to be semi-protected? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Sgarchik (talkcontribs) 18:05, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

It is in fact not protected in any way. I added David Krummel as the principal. CTJF83 chat 18:32, 31 May 2010 (UTC)

Clean up[edit]

Article is filled with unsourced content with non-notables and original research. Needs major editing to move from high school newsletter to encyclopedia article. (talk) 02:34, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

I saw a note about this article from the Schools Wikiproject and removed quite a bit of excess info, especially lists. Prose is much preferred and can eliminate a lot of the trivial items that lists often include. Here's what I removed and why:

  • List of plays and musicals; this type of info serves no purpose in a Wikipedia article as it is trivia. While mentioning the school's drama club/program as part of the article is certainly appropriate, details about every play they've done are not, nor is mentioning the director unless that person has notability.
  • Athletics Hall of Fame; this list had very nice paragraphs about each of the members of the HOF, but the Wikilinks for each person were for someone else with the same name. None of the names in the list appeared to have any notability and the descriptions about them were appropriate for a school website or school publication, but not a Wikipedia article. For a notable alumni section, the description should just be a line or two about what the person is notable for, not a bio of their time at the school.
  • List of athletic banners; If a team has won a significant number of championships, that can be mentioned, but making a list of every championship and runner-up for every team is over the top. For instance, saying a team has won "20 conference titles" would be worth including, but not listing every one of them. Most high school athletic programs, even more successful ones, can be summed up in a solid paragraph or two.
  • Cross country list; I removed all but the state championship years and state runner-ups. All the others are certainly great accomplishments, but really don't add much to the article and make a list rather lengthy. If a paragraph about the team in general is ever written, perhaps some of the other placements can be mentioned in text, like how many conference titles they've won or how many times they've made the state meet.
  • Football season summaries; this is not the place for season summaries. Only college and professional football teams have the notability to warrant individual articles on a respective season; high schools generally do not. The football team's major successes can certainly be mentioned, but listing every game and then using wording that is more appropriate for a sports page or a yearbook isn't appropriate for an article like this. Mention state championships and state runner-ups and any other outstanding info (like the winning streak) and make sure some specific sources are provided as well.

Be careful about using words that are promotional or otherwise show a point of view, as there are still some present. Also look for more specific sources. Simply stating that these come from yearbooks within a 50-year range isn't very helpful for a reader, especially one wishing to verify any facts. Any questions about what kind of info is appropriate and how to integrate it into an article (if at all), please ask here or at the Schools project talk page.
