Anthony Wayne Local Schools will partner with our community to engage all students in educational opportunities empowering them to become active, responsible, and productive citizens in our global society.
Spirit of Giving Spaghetti Dinner
Teachers and staff in the Anthony Wayne School District founded an organization in 2008, coined “Anthony Wayne Sprit of Giving (AWSG),” to help struggling families in the Anthony Wayne Community. The main goal of this organization is to raise funds from individual donations to lessen the financial burden these families are facing as a result of extreme medical expenses. As a non-profit 501-c3 organization, we have been able to support these families through fundraisers that have given us the ability to provide supports such as: moving services, housecleaning, lawn mowing, Christmas presents, babysitting services, and food donations. Over the years, because of the communities support, we have been able to provide assistance to over 20 families in the Anthony Wayne district.
Our largest fundraiser will be held on February 19, 2016, which is a spaghetti dinner during the same time as the AW vs. Southview boys basketball game. The dinner includes spaghetti (meat and meatless sauce), salad, roll and dessert. Moreover, the dinner will have a 50/50 raffle and a silent auction in the Anthony Wayne High School cafeteria from 4:30-8pm. Tickets are $5 at the door, dine in, carry out, or drive thru is available just follow the posted signs.
Family Fun Night
This year AWHS Softball program is hosting our Family Fun Night on Friday, March 11, 2016 featuring an All-Star Basketball Game and Carnival. The Kid's Carnival runs 5:30 to 8:30 pm. The basketball game will feature the AW staff vs local police and fire personnel (Whitehouse, Waterville, Monclova, Lucas County Sheriff Department, and Ohio Highway Patrol). Game time is 7:30pm. As you may be aware, this event is the AW Softball program's main fundraising event and we are very excited again this year!
In addition to the basketball game and carnival, performances are scheduled by the AWHS Cheerleaders, the Dance Team, and the AW Choir. Switchback Catering will be providing smoked foods for dinner options. Easter Seals will also have a truck set-up that night for donations from the AW community. The Ohio Highway Patrol will have a cruiser on-site and the Waterville Township Police are bring their new police puppy.
Stuff the Bus
Students and Staff at Fallen Timbers Middle School participated in the 2016 Stuff the Bus campaign for Food for Thought's Mobile Pantry. As a building of 700+ they gathered 10,020 food items.
The top home room from 5th grade was Mrs. Fatzinger's class and the top home room from 6th grade was Mr. Huddleston's class. Together, these homerooms brought in a combined total of 2,092 of the items collected.
Congratulations and Thank You to all FTMS Students and Staff. Your efforts and donations for people in need will be greatly appreciated!
Mark your calendars! On April 16, 2016 Anthony Wayne FCCLA will be putting on the Lead2Feed 5k (formerly known as No Kid Hungry)! All proceeds will go to food banks throughout Ohio, hoping to diminish our state issue of hunger (6th in the nation for food insecurity)! Sign up TODAY at www.lead2feed5k.weebly.com!
