ATTENTION 10TH/11TH GRADE PARENTS: On Tuesday, April 19, our Adena High School sophomore and junior students will be participating in ReDo Day/Be the Difference. This is a powerful, high-energy program in which student and adult participants are guided through a series of experiential learning processes. The overall goals of the program are to embrace diversity; increase personal power and self-esteem; to shift negative peer pressure to positive peer support; and to eliminate the acceptability of bullying, violence, and all forms of oppression. The program is designed to unite students with members of the school and community and to empower them to carry forth the message of respect and caring for all back to the greater school community. ReDo Day/Be The Difference is brought to us from Changepoint. More information can be found @ thechangepoint.com. We will be doing reverse permission slips for this day. If you do not want your student to participate in this event, please send a note to school excusing them from the event. If you have questions about ReDo Day, please contact the Adena High School office at 740-998-5293.
Here is a sneak peak at our new playground. The project is complete and now open to all students! Thank you to the Adena Local Schools Board of Education and the Adena PTO for making this happen for our students.

Adena High School graduate, Brandon Smith, returned and made a stop at Adena Elementary today. Mr. Smith came to meet his pen pals in Mrs. Bryans class that have been giving him encouragement and support while he serves our country as a member of the U.S. Air Force. Mrs. Bryans second grade classroom have been writing to Mr. Smith since December. The students were excited to finally get to meet their pen pal and speak to him in person. Their pen pal was equally excited.

PAX is the PBIS Tier I behavior intervention program that our elementary uses daily. PAX teaches students to learn self-management skills that promote a peaceful and productive learning environment. PAX stands for Peace, Productivity, Health and Happiness. In this picture, you see a group of students celebrating the fact that one of their classmates met her goal. In this picture you see happiness, positive mental health, peace, and the celebration over one’s productivity. A lot of student’s trying to be PAX leaders. A good sight to see.
