Whitehouse 3rd Graders Interview Area Business Leaders
The third graders at Whitehouse Primary put their economic knowledge to the test this week by conducting interviews with many businesses from their local Whitehouse community. Students interviewed the representatives by asking questions related to concepts studied in class, including goods and services, decision making, competition and monopolies, and positive and negative incentives. The students loved interacting with these businesses and really learned a lot from these discussions. The third graders and their teachers would like to thank all who attended!
The event was attended by representatives from Anthony Wayne Floral, AW Heating and Cooling, Cherry Tree Bakery, Divine Reflections, Diversified Insurance, Peinert-Dunn Funeral Homes, Pisanello's Pizza, Prince Aircraft, Rexam Beverage Can Company, Skin Savy, Sunoco Gas Station, Whitehouse Inn, and Whitehouse Motors, along with Dr. Mowery (High Point Animal Hospital), Dr. Pecsok (Dentist), and Joe Urenovitch (Attorney).
All FCCLA Star Event Competitors Qualify to go to State!!
Saturday, Feb. 22nd 2014 was the culmination of a very stressful FCCLA STAR event competition preparation "season". With the 11 school closures, students' research and rehearsal time was effectively cut in half. Most of the members stayed long hours after school, came in before school, worked during many lunches, even had all afternoon working sessions at Way Public Library on President's Day weekend to be fully prepared for this first step of a National competition.
Their hard work really paid off big! All eight that competed earned the right to compete again at FCCLA State Leadership Conference April 24-25
If you know any of these students, please be sure to congratulate them on their achievement, and wish them good luck at the State level of competition!

Calamity Day Legislation
I wanted to provide to you the latest update on the pending calamity day legislation. Currently, the Ohio House and Senate have separate versions of legislation on changing adding calamity days for school districts to use this academic year. On Wednesday, the House and the Senate discussed their two versions of this legislation but could not come to a joint agreement on common language. Legislators are telling us they will continue to work toward an agreement on this specific issue. Unfortunately, they will not be in session again until March 12th.
We will keep you informed as this legislation is debated between these two groups.
