Students in Mrs. A. Smith's class are learning about space! They engineered a rocket, had the rocket hold a payload, and learned about what astronauts do for life on the space station. Keep up the great work!

Every year our fourth graders are assigned a first-grade book buddy to help them build their reading skills all year long! First grade students read to their friends while forming connections with older students! Book buddy relationships aren’t always just work, though. Special celebrations have proven to be a great way to break the ice and make our younger buddies more comfortable with reading aloud. Our cross-grade activities are two-fold in their benefits, providing routine use of mastered skills for the older kids, while creating fun opportunities for our younger students to create a love for learning!

Superintendent Kraig Hissong attended the LIVE UNITED Awards Breakfast this morning accepting an award on behalf of our staff who donated a record setting $7,000! United Way had this to say about the campaign: You did it again, Logan County! 198 businesses and 2,597 individual donors combined to pledge $1,102,249 during our 2022 Campaign, making it the ninth straight year you've helped us achieve our campaign goal. The total is a new record and a three percent increase over last year. Logan County remains the smallest community in Ohio to ever have a $1 million campaign for its local United Way, and it's now happened five years in a row. 46 local businesses were recognized for their individual and collective philanthropic achievement during our LIVE UNITED Awards Breakfast this week at Green Hills Community in West Liberty.

Braylon Lucas, a 6th grader, was named the middle school Spelling Bee Champion this morning! He won in the 14th round with the word “intubated.” Jill Fullenkamp, 8th grader, was the runner-up. Middle school had 8 representatives from each grade level and spelled a total of 147 words. Braylon will go on to compete in the next round of the state spelling bee by taking an online test to determine his placement in the regional spelling bee at Ohio University this Spring. Congratulations, Braylon and Jill!

Cannot say thank you enough to WLS basketball teams, cheerleaders, AD, principals, student body, gym teacher and teachers for making this a success. And to the parents who brought out their children to play in the game. To our own special Olympic athletes that came to support them. Everyone plays. Looking forward to next year."
