In April George Jose was the recipient of the Franklin B. Walter award.  This award was created to honor the top student in each county of the state of Ohio.  George then had the opportunity to travel to Columbus and be honored with the other 87 recipients at a banquet.  We are very proud of George as well as the rest of the graduating class of 2014.

Mr. Pepple’s advanced physics class has been working together with Husky Refinery.  Our students had the opportunity to travel to Husky Refinery and take a tour.  Husky also sent a representative to the school to teach the students about what they do and all the different job opportunities that are offered at Husky.  Finally, our students worked in groups to create a presentation that they presented at Husky to a group of their employees.  This is the second year that Mr. Pepple has worked with Husky for this project and it has been a wonderful opportunity for our kids. They have been exposed to real life opportunities that might open doors for them in the future.  I want to thank Mr. Pepple for taking the time to organize this opportunity for our students. 

Our high school students along with a few elementary and middle school students performed “The Music Man” on April 11th thru 13th.   After watching this performance it’s hard to believe it was being performed by high school students because everything was so professionally done.  We are so blessed to have such talented students and the facilities that give them the opportunity to use this talent.  I would like to thank Mr. Smith and Ms. Barger for all their hard work with directing the play.  I would also like to thank everyone who volunteered countless hours towards making the play so successful. 

I also want to thank Mrs. Temple and Mrs. Wheeler for organizing our Art Show on April 11th thru 13th.  The Art Show included all the work of our students.  This included drawing, painting, sculpture, and other works of art.  It is remarkable at how talented our students are with these different disciplines of art.
