Memorial Junior High School Girls Participate in NOPEC’s Energy Science Program
Four female students from Memorial Junior High School recently participated in the Activating and Energizing Girls in Science (AEGIS), an Ohio Energy Project program, sponsored by NOPEC, to help expose them to future careers in the sciences. Their primary task was to build an energy bicycle in order to help them understand the mechanics and importance of energy. The bike was then made available for the Memorial girls to bring back to their school building. The participating students included Zishaneese Quinn, Alexis Thomas, Charlotte Hantus and Arianna Diggs and they were overseen in this project by 4th grade teacher Jimetric Johnson. You can watch a video of our very own SEL Students by clicking here. Congratulations to our Memorial students for taking an active role in helping to shape their future careers in the science and related fields.    
Adrian Launches New Student Breakfast Model
Breakfast is considered the most important meal of the day, especially for students. Adrian Elementary has taken steps to improve the delivery of its student breakfast model for the start of the 2016-2017 school year. The breakfast model is now centrally located in the gymnasium and served from 8:30 to 8:50 AM each school day. Students receive their breakfast at one of three assigned food distribution tables based on their grade level. Each breakfast meal includes an apple or banana, Pop Tart and regular or chocolate milk. Adrian staff members are on hand to supervise the food distribution tables and help ensure students get to their classroom on-time.  The improved student breakfast model is a big improvement over the previous system which required students to eat at their desks in the classroom. The new breakfast model at Adrian is helping to ensure that students get the fuel they need each day to learn and succeed. Stay tuned for more info regarding the new student breakfast model at Adrian Elementary in the future.

The Moons Are Back!

The Fabulous Blue Moons are back and will be performing at Legacy Village on Saturday July 16th from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.    1972, a Sha Na Na Concert, and a back yard summer party is where it started.  For these Brush students, the next, and supposedly final goal, was to impress choir director, Lindley Hall, enough to let them perform in the Brush Vocal Music Fall Concert.  They auditioned, Mr. Hall smiled, and a phenomenon was born. Since then, The Fabulous Blue Moons have been making music and we've been listening. Hope to see you on July 16.  This is a party you won't want to miss!
