Principal Dr. Falkenstein’s Report

  1. College Credit Plus: Mandatory parent meeting is Jan. 17 at 7:00 pm for those families wishing to participate in CCP next year.
  2. 24 at 5:00 is our Dudes Volleyball tournament!
  3. Pep rally at 2:10 on Friday, Jan. 26. Dudes volleyball champs take on our staff team.  FYI, the staff team is undefeated!
  4. Winter Homecoming is Saturday, Jan. 27 with our dance after the basketball game. The theme and dance will be a carnival!  Thank you to so many community members, parents and teachers who donated gifts and their time.
  5. Scheduling letters for next year will be sent home soon for students to review with parents.
  6. I am continuing to serve on the state Legislative Committee. The next meeting is Tuesday in Columbus.  I have an ODE executive joining us in North Baltimore on Feb. 14 to demonstrate how laws—such as OTES, state testing and graduation points—actually play out in daily practice.
  7. Welcome Cory Mathias as our technology/online teacher for the rest of the year!

Principal Mark Lange’s Report

Since the last board meeting, I received a check for $410.90 from the Box Tops for Education program that is run by General Mills.  We receive $0.10 for each box top that we receive.  We have had a great response this year and the check represents the money that we have received so far this year.  We encourage members of the community to continue to turn in box tops.  They can be dropped off at any of the buildings, sent in with a student, or left at the board office.

 

Our S.T.E.M. assembly that was funded by the Ohio Soybean Council that was scheduled for December 20th had to be cancelled at the last minute.  Interestingly enough, they went to Baltimore, Ohio instead of North Baltimore.  That caused plenty of embarrassment on the part of the presenters and plenty of laughs around the district.  In case you were wondering, Baltimore is a village of about 3,000 people in Fairfield County.
