Letter from Anthony Wayne High School
October 22, 2014
Dear AWHS parent(s)/guardian(s),
I am writing this letter to inform you of an alleged communication to potentially harm specific students at the high school. When the concern was brought to our attention, school administration and law enforcement began an investigation. Upon notification, immediate actions were taken with the students involved so as to ensure the safety of all students and staff.
Through the investigation and evidence disclosed, the administrative staff and law enforcement ascertained that the threats to other students were not specific in nature as to place, time, or means but were taken seriously and dealt with immediately. Incidents such as these are treated as a serious matter. Parents of those students involved in this situation have been contacted in regards to this issue.
Our goal is to always provide a safe environment for all children, staff, volunteers, and visitors. We appreciate the trust and confidence you place in us, and we will continue to work with you and the students to ensure a safe learning environment for all.

Capes for Kids
The last two days in Marengo, Ohio, Anthony Wayne FCCLA students have participated in many Leadership workshops and kicked off the "Superhero" theme for the year with production of various styles and sizes of superhero capes! These capes will be donated to the "Capes for Kids" program, part of the Hero Project, "turning ordinary kids into SUPERHEROS at Peyton Manning Children's Hospital. If you "stay tuned" you'll hear more about this project AND MORE from our FCCLA Leadership team soon!
Fallen Timbers Student Leadership Council
During the last week of September, FT students had an opportunity to campaign for the position of Student Leadership Council Representatives. Candidates sharpened up their speech writing skills and summoned up their courage to present their speeches in each homeroom class. It takes a great deal of fortitude to “put yourself out there” to campaign for a position. Way to go, candidates!
Student Leadership Council candidates gathered to participate in the Anthony Wayne Homecoming Parade on Sept. 26th. The turnout was very good and the students had a great time!
By now you have heard about the Enterovirus D68 that is spreading through the country. While the virus does not stop at a border, it has been found so far in 16 Midwestern States including Ohio. It presents in the form of a cold and is really concerning in children with Asthma. Strep throat, Hand Foot Mouth and the Flu are other popular items right now.
If you have a few minutes to remind/instruct on hand washing OFTEN!! Children are famous for skipping that step as you all know.
To help stop the spread of germs,
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.
- Put your used tissue in the waste basket.
- If you don't have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow, not your hands.
- Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for 20 seconds.
- If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
Hand washing is always the best way to help from spreading those yucky germs!
