Good Afternoon, This is Superintendent John Balzer with an update on today’s incident. The Ross County Sheriff’s office requested and received the Pickaway County canine unit to take through the building and check lockers and cars in the parking lot. The search did not yield any contraband and Law Enforcement continues to monitor the building to provide peace of mind and reassure students of their safety. I want to take a moment to thank the Adena Staff for their quick response and precision with handling the protocols for the lockdown. We want to thank Sheriff Lavender and all the deputies who responded and assisted us today. Most importantly, I want to thank the students who responded to the training provided to them regarding (If you see or hear something, SAY something.) As always, the safety and wellbeing of students and staff are our first priority. Knowing an incident like this can be upsetting to experience, if your student or you as a parent or guardian would like to speak with one of our Integrated Services Counselors or Adena Guidance Counselor concerning today’s incident, they are available to assist you. Please call the school office to arrange to speak with one of them at your convenience. Thank you.

The Junior Class recently participated in a mulch sale to raise money for their senior trip to Walt Disney World next year. A trip that Mr. Mathis has been planning for the class. Overall the students sold 1800 bags of mulch and earned $1 per bag towards their senior trip. Last Saturday, students and some teachers met early at the school and to load trucks, trailers, and a dump truck to make deliveries to their customers. Some even spread the mulch for their customers.

In honor of National Poetry Month, Ms. Nusbaum’s Advanced English III block participated in Poetry Coffeehouse this morning. Each student was required to memorize a poem from an American poet and create an interpretive performance with costumes, props, and art. Every performance was memorable with its own unique mark, and the students worked hard on making this a great success.

Students in Miss Lovensheimer’s first grade class welcomed baby chicks to class this week. Students watched the eggs for three weeks as the incubator did its work. Miss Lovensheimer brought the project to her students as a result of a workshop offered by The Ohio State University this summer. What a great way to connect Adena’s students to their agricultural heritage! Pictured are Alexis Saltz and Eme Sever who really became involved with the project. Thanks Miss Lovensheimer for connecting our students to real life experiences!
