Feed Your Potential 365 Q: Why did the student eat a pear before their test? A: To be properly pre-PEAR-ed! Whether or not they can raise test scores, there’s a reason these delicious gems are celebrated in December (National Pear Month). A medium-sized pear has only 100 calories and offers 21% of the recommended daily value of fiber and 8% of vitamin C among other nutrients. Add ripe, juicy pears to oatmeal, sandwiches, salads and desserts. How a-PEEL-ing! https://media.gettyimages.com/videos/pear-flying-in-slow-motion-against-blue-screen-video-id1194643586

Dear Parents/Guardians and Staff, After school on Monday, December 6, District Administrators were notified of a student making a threat of violence toward the school. Upon learning this information, the District immediately contacted the Warren County Sheriff’s Department. After a thorough investigation, it was concluded the threat was not credible, and at no time was anyone in danger. The students who brought this information to the administration’s attention did exactly as taught to do by reporting their concerns. Please know the safety of your child(ren) is of highest priority and we will continue to work closely with law enforcement to maintain a safe learning environment in our schools. Sincerely, John S. Goralski Superintendent of Schools
