Put-in-Bay School Sets Important Year-end Dates

Put in Bay School

School News – by Steve Poe, Superintendent

Our seniors returned from their seven-day Caribbean cruise on April19. This was a class trip they will always remember, from the delicious food on the ship to the excursions at various ports-of-call. This senior class worked hard to raise the funds to pay for this trip and came back claiming is was worth every penny. Good job, seniors!

For our students involved in extra-curricular activities, Dr. Brett Kuns will once again be offering free medical examinations. The date for the physical exams is Thursday, May 15th. A schedule and forms will be sent home prior to this date for parents to complete. PLEASE SEND IN COMPLETED EXAM FORMS PRIOR TO MAY 15.

It is hard to believe we are preparing for the end of another school year. The Spring Concert is scheduled for Tuesday, May 13th at 7:00pm and the annual Awards Day is set for Thursday, May 29th.  These two programs are two sure signs that we are closing in on another school year. Completing the school year will be Graduation on Friday, June 6th at 7:00pm at the Perry Monument.

This year’s graduation will feature speeches from our class Valedictorian, Zoltan Urge and our Salutatorian, Madeline Pugh. Zoltan was recently honored at the annual Ottawa County Top Ten Banquet where he received the Earl Johnson Scholarship. In addition, senior student, Victoria Wertenbach will receive recognition for her academic accomplishments at the annual “Ottawa County 9 to 5 Breakfast” on Friday, May 9th.

Addressing this year’s graduating class will be Jennifer Robison Norris, a 1989 Put-in-Bay graduate. Ms. Norris is Vice-President and Associate General Counsel at Supply Chain Services-Pharmaceutical at Cardinal Health, Inc. in Dublin, Ohio. Negotiating contracts and providing legal counsel to all areas of the company are two of her many responsibilities. After leaving Put-in-Bay, Jennifer attended Miami University for her undergraduate work before graduating in the Top Ten Percent at the Moritz College of Law at The Ohio State University.  Ms. Norris brings a wealth of knowledge to the podium and our graduates look forward to welcoming her back to the island she once called “home.” Jennifer and her husband, Joel, along with 11 year-old son Jack, now live in Upper Arlington.

May 5 to 9 is Staff Appreciation Week. Our teachers and support staff do a fantastic job and we want to thank them for their hard work and dedication. We are blessed to have such a talented group of professionals in our school system. The next time you see one of them, maybe say, “thank you.”  On Friday, May 23rd, school will be dismissed at 12:30 for Memorial Day Weekend.

Grass Burn on Langram Road Revitalizes Environment

Posted on

Travelers on Langram Road, South Bass Island, will notice a yard tainted by charcoal black burn residue.  Contrary to one’s first impression, the burn was completed on purpose. A prescribed burn is a fire done under specific weather and soil conditions to remove old, tall grass, fertilize the soil for more nutritious grass, and to secure healthier wildlife, according to a Texas agriculture professor.
