We are within days to the end of another successful school year! May is always an exciting time for our students and our faculty. We have been lucky enough to have outstanding seasons in all sports with our students still competing in many regional and state tournaments. I am proud of our teams and coaches who have been league champions, sectional champions, district, regional, and state placers.
In addition to our success in athletics we have more importantly seen our students excel in the classroom. Archbold Area Schools was ranked in the top 10% of all of the schools in the State of Ohio (over 600 schools). Our senior class will receive over 1.6 million dollars in scholarships to further their education with 92% planning on attending a four-year college.
I want to personally thank our teachers and staff for all they have done to make this a great year. However, without the help and support of our community, Archbold would not be the special place that it is for our young people. Thank you to our parents, businesses, community members and more who support what we do!
This is the first 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 four 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.
