CONGRATULATIONS NICOLE KASHNER!!
Nicole, an 8th grade student at Adena, is the state winner of the Patriots Pen Contest. She was awarded $1500.00 and her "What Freedom Means to Me" essay has been entered in the national contest. Good Luck!
Each year more than 125,000 students in grades 6-8 enter the VFW’s Patriot’s Pen youth essay contest. The first-place winner from each state competes for national awards totaling $50,000, with each first-place state winner receiving a minimum of $500 at the national level. The national first-place winner wins $5,000 and an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C.
The essay contest encourages young minds to examine America’s history, along with their own experiences in modern American society, by drafting a 300- to 400-word essay, expressing their views based on a patriotic theme chosen by the VFW Commander-in-Chief.

This letter is to inform you of the upcoming changes in our security system which will affect your drop off times and locations. This past summer, our board of education approved a recommendation to upgrade our current security system. This upgrade was much needed for the safety and security of our students and staff. With the implementation of this system, limited and restricted access will change which will in turn, provide a safer and more secure educational institution.
Here is what will be affected by this change.
- No students will be allowed in the building before 7:00 am
- Any student being dropped off at the school before 7:45 am must be dropped off in the back of the building.
- Student drop off will only be allowed in the front of the building after 7:45 am.
- Before 7:45, all students must enter at the rear of the building.
- There will be supervision for all students arriving before 7:45 am
Please be sure to speak with your children about this change. This change will begin when students return from Christmas break. If you have any further questions, you may contact me or your building principals. Have a great Holiday season.
This bus policy was adopted by the Adena Local Schools Board of Education at the 2/17/15 meeting.
