We are now in our second nine weeks and it has been a great fall for the Bluestreaks. Our sporting teams won a record five NWOAL league titles. There have also been district and regional titles, along with teams that have participated at the state level. We are proud of our teams and coaches!
As we move through the second nine weeks we are approaching parent teacher conferences which will be held on: November 16 from 4 PM to 8 PM, on the 20 from 4 PM to 8 PM, and on the 21 from 8 AM to 12 PM. You should receive information from your child's teacher or the building that they attend. If you have questions about conferences please call one of our offices.
Thank you to everyone who supported McTeacher Night which brought in $500 for our schools and also Marco's pizza night that raised $573 for our athletic department. We appreciate these business and all of you who helped in these efforts. We will have a Dairy Queen night coming up on November 15.
If you should have any questions please feel free to contact me at the central office.
Have a great school year and Go Streaks!
Earlier this year the State of Ohio released school grade cards for the 2016-2017 school year. At Archbold Area Schools we consider the grade card to be only one measure of what we do. We do so much more for our students and our community! I want to thank our teachers for their hard work in preparing our students for the state tests, and also our students for their efforts. I look forward to continuing to Prepare the Leaders of Tomorrow this school year!
I have summarized the results below:
Other interesting facts:
If you have any questions about the grade card or how we prepare our students for these tests, please let me know.
In the spring of 2017 our district carried out a WiFi project to supply internet connectivity on all of our school buses. Our goal was and still is to provide students the ability to complete homework and access the internet on their way home from school, during field trips, and traveling to extra-curriculars.
This is the seond year that our two propane buses have been in operation. By purchasing propane buses we save the district money in fuel costs (propane sells for about $1.00 per gallon and we receive a .50 rebate for each gallon from the IRS), and they create less pollution that goes into our air. The initial cost of a propane bus is very comparable to that of a diesel school bus and we have been very happy with their operation thus far.
We are entering year five of operation for our wind turbine and this is the prime operating time for the 298 foot, 750 kW machine. Starting in November through March we see the most wind and this helps to create power for our high school and elementary buildings. Although we may complain about the cold wind and wind chill, these strong breezes help to bring thousands of dollars in savings to our school district.
