    Dear AWHS Parents and Students:

    The Anthony Wayne Local Schools would like to share the details of a recent situation in which students were concerned about a Facebook post that they interpreted as a possible threat. Upon receiving the information, an investigation into the threat began immediately.  The investigation included meeting with those involved in the situation and the local law enforcement.  After the review of all the information, the post could not be deemed as a credible threat.  The District will continue to ensure the safety of our students at all events.  If you have questions, please feel free to contact Mrs. Hoellrich at the high school office at 419-877-0466.

  • State Superintendent Dr. Richard Ross Recently Visited AW Schools

     

    Recently State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Dr. Richard Ross made a visit to the Anthony Wayne Schools.  On behalf of the State Board of Education, Dr. Ross presented Waterville Primary School with a certificate recognizing Waterville Primary as a 2013 National Blue Ribbon School.  In order to receive this award Waterville Primary consistently performed well on 3rd and 4th grade Ohio Achievement assessments in math and reading.  The school met Adequate Yearly Progress each year for the last five years.  The Adequate Yearly Progress component shows how well students are doing in math and reading and really examines if all students overall are being successful at Waterville.

    After spending the morning at Waterville Primary Dr. Ross then traveled to Anthony Wayne High School to visit the district's Vocational Agriculture Program..  Dr. Ross wanted to observe this program because of the numerous recognitions this program has received throughout the state.

  • Roundabout Training

    The Village of Whitehouse in coordination with the Lucas County Engineer’s Office are developing a roundabout to be constructed at the Intersection of State Route 64 and Finzel Road, North and South.

    The project consists of constructing a modern roundabout at the intersection of SR64 and Finzel Road and the realignment of Finzel Road to eliminate the existing offset intersection.  Also included is the construction of splitter islands at the approach to the roundabout, storm sewer, sidewalks/multi-use path, landscaping, lighting and other related work.

  • Socks of Love

    After reading an article from a Scholastic News magazine about homelessness in America, one of Monclova Primary's fourth grade teachers, Mrs. Seeger got the idea to help out the homeless in the Toledo area. She also saw an idea called "Socks of Love" on Pinterest.  By combining the two ideas, she came up with the month's "Hearts of Kindness" project. The 4th grade students collected socks and travel-sized toiletries. Mrs. Seeger's class then put them together.  Each sock contained the other sock, a toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, soap, and various other toiletries. The socks were tied closed with a ribbon and note that said they were put together by 4th grade students at Monclova Primary School. They were then dropped them off at the drop off center for the Cherry Street Mission in downtown Toledo. The students collected about 82 socks plus a few extra toiletries. The representatives at the Cherry Street Mission were very appreciative of the donation and sent a nice note of thanks.  We are proud of our 4th grade students and Mrs. Seeger!

  • We Care Chair

    Monclova's fourth grade students made a donation to the Progeria foundation this year with the proceeds from their cookie sale. This was a part of an entrepreneurship unit.  In addition they donated a child size rocking chair that will be used at the hospital. The parents' club, MAPS will be donating a matching adult sized chair to go along with that chair.

  • Calendar Update

    Tuesday, May 6 is a school day for students. This will be a kindergarten white team day. This day was originally going to be a day off of school for staff and students because it is Primary election day in Ohio and three AW buildings are polling locations. We will have extra security on hand to ensure student safety in those buildings.

  • Calamity Day Plan 2013/14

    Dear AW Parents & Students,

    Over the past month, many have inquired about the plan to make up the school days missed due to inclement weather.  Legislation requires students to make up five of the fourteen days missed.  At last night’s Board of Education meeting, the Anthony Wayne Board of Education approved a plan to do so.   The plan consists of small changes in the current school calendar along with the utilization of On-line Assignments / Blizzard Bags.  This will allow the last day of instruction to remain June 4, 2014.  Below is a list of how each of these days will be made up:

    Day             Replaced by                       Replacement Date

    1. Contingency Plan              Students complete On-line Assignments (Assigned on March 27th; Due April 10th)                                    
    2. Contingency Plan              Students complete On-line Assignments (Assigned on March 27th; Due April 10th)                                                
    3. Contingency Plan              Students complete On-line Assignments (Assigned on April 14th; Due April 28th)                                                    
    4. Contingency Plan               Students attend school on 5/6/14
    5. Contingency Plan              Ohio Department of Education - Professional Development Waiver Day- 6/5/14 - Students do not report

    Two On-line Assignments/ Blizzard Bags will be distributed to students this week (no later than Thursday). They will be given two weeks from the date of distribution to complete them.  We appreciate your assistance in making sure your child completes the assignments.  If they do not complete the assignments, they will be considered absent. Also, if the school district were to miss any school days for the remainder of the year due to inclement weather, days will be added on to the end of the school year.

    Thank you for your patience with this winter weather and the use of the calamity days. We are happy that the Ohio Legislature approved the recent legislation that allowed the District to finalize the plan.  We look forward to working with you as we implement this plan.
