Here is a big shoutout to the Adena student body who went to cheer on the Lady Warriors in the Sweet 16! Thanks to a generous donation from a community member, the students received a paid entry ticket and were treated to a tailgate party and a ride on the Spirit Bus. It was amazing to see the community coming together to support the team, and the students showed so much enthusiasm and school spirit. What a journey it has been with the Lady Warriors! Thank you for an unforgettable experience as we made our way to the 2023 OHSAA Girls Volleyball State Championships. Your hard work and dedication have indeed paid off. You have made us proud to be your fans!
Check out Ms. Madelyn Horsley's 6th-grade science class! They're in the middle of an exciting rock cycle lab where they're using Starburst Candy to model the different stages of the cycle. What a fun and creative way to learn about geology! 🍬🌋

Today, 4th Grade celebrated good behavior with a PBIS activity: STEAM with Sally! Students who had positive behavior for the first nine weeks were invited to participate.

A BIG THANK YOU to Sally Bluck for brining such a cool activity to our students and a BIG THANK YOU to Mrs. Jillian Bluck for making arrangements to bring the 4th graders this opportunity! We appreciate it very much!

Hey everyone! Hope you had a blast at Adena's JR High Halloween Dance and haunted hallway today! The FCCLA students and Advisor, Ms. Hampton, did an amazing job in making the event a frightfully fun one. I hope you all enjoyed the hauntingly good music, wickedly delicious treats, and bone-chilling scares in the haunted hallway. It was surely the scariest night of the year!
There's an exciting buzz in Mr. Anderson's science class these days, as students are learning to build structures from scratch and then test their strengths. With the guidance of their teacher, students are allowed to design, build, and test their hypotheses in a fun and interactive way. The process begins with the students brainstorming their ideas and sketching out their designs. Once they have a blueprint, they set to work building their structures using various materials. The students take great care in the construction process, ensuring their structures are sturdy and well-supported. Once the structures are complete, it's time to put them to the test. The students are excited to see how their creations will hold up under pressure, and they eagerly gather around as the testing begins. Using various tools and techniques, Mr. Anderson and his students measure the strength and durability of the structures, recording the results as they go. Through this hands-on experience, students are not only learning about the principles of structural engineering, but they are also developing valuable problem-solving skills. They are challenged to think critically, work collaboratively, and persevere through setbacks. It's a great way to bring the science curriculum to life, and it's clear that Mr. Anderson's students are having a blast in the process!
"🌎🚀 Today in our science class, Isaac Bostwick and Nate Freeman had a thrilling experience learning about Earth's rotation and revolution!

Adena's Agricultural Education course is doing an excellent job of preparing students for future leadership roles in their communities and beyond. Agricultural Education students have been actively practicing a mock meeting using proper Parliamentary Procedure. It's great to see students taking the initiative to learn and apply these essential skills. Parliamentary Procedure is a set of rules that govern how meetings are run, ensuring that everyone has a fair chance to speak and that decisions are made in an orderly and efficient manner. By practicing Parliamentary Procedure, Adena's students are not only learning how to conduct meetings effectively, but they are also developing essential leadership and communication skills. They are learning how to present their ideas clearly and persuasively, listen actively to others, and work collaboratively to achieve common goals. Keep up the great work, Adena Ag students!
