EHS Students Compete at 41st HOSA International Leadership Conference in Dallas

Kelsie Chasteen, Kaya Davis, and Kierstyn Kuhn, spent 6 days in Dallas, Texas to participate and compete at the 41st HOSA International Leadership Conference. Our students traveled with a group of 44 ILC qualifiers from three other Butler Tech/HOSA chapters (Lakota East, Lakota West & the Bioscience Center).

Thank You to Edgewood Athletic Booster Association for Their Generous Donations

The Edgewood Athletic Booster Association presented two generous donations at the June 25 Board of Education meeting. A $10,000 check was presented by Tom Miller, Vice President, and Lisa Whiles, Treasurer, from the Athletic Booster Association, to Gary Gabbard, Board President. This check was the final payment, of a ten year commitment, for the Kumler Turf Field project. In total, the Athletic Boosters contributed $100,000 to this project. “We were pleased to be a part of that purchase and know how much having a state of the art surface to play on makes with our athletes”, said Lisa Whiles. A second donation was presented totaling $37,268 for the benefit of Edgewood student athletes and academic team members. This donation will be divided among the students who participate on a sport or academic team during the school year. The funds are allocated on a per-student amount, and will be deposited to the Team Accounts. The funds will be used towards camps, uniforms, supplies, and other needs. Edgewood Athletic Booster Association also awards college scholarships annually. The grand total of all financial support provided this year by the Edgewood Athletic Boosters was $52,268. Whiles stated, “We are pleased to be able to provide these gifts to our students and hope to continue to do so for many years to come”. Edgewood is truly blessed to have such an amazing Athletic Booster Association. Your dedication, hard work, fundraising efforts, and outstanding commitment makes a huge impact on our student athletes and academic team members experience. Thank You for you all you do for Edgewood!

Message from Russ Fussnecker

To our Edgewood staff and families, I spoke to Sheriff Richard Jones, from the Butler County Sheriff Office, this morning, June 28. During our discussion, Sheriff Jones inquired about our plans to arm school personnel. I shared that we are discussing the training involved for certain staff members to carry firearms on school premises. As you may be aware, our Board passed a resolution in July 2013 to allow for trained staff members to carry firearms on school property. This resolution is attached for your reference. We expect more discussion on this topic at future Board meetings. I also informed Sheriff Jones that we are actively investigating the costs of metal detectors.

Safety Tax Levy to be Discussed at June 25 Board Meeting

Our district continues to actively respond to our community’s demand to make our schools safe. Within the last week, our district along with at least six other districts in Butler County, expressed interest in joining a proposed county school financing district (CSFD) that could provide an alternative funding source for school safety and security. As a member of the CSFD, Edgewood City Schools would be permitted to participate in a county-wide tax levy exclusively for school safety, security, and mental health services. Superintendent Russ Fussnecker and Treasurer Randy Stiver will discuss the proposal at the next Board of Education meeting on Monday, June 25. They will ask for approval of a resolution to join the CSFD – a required first step in the process. If the Edgewood board approves, voters can expect to see a 10-year, 1.5-mill county-wide levy on the November 6 ballot. Levy proceeds would benefit only those school districts that vote to participate in the CSFD. Ohio Senate Bill 226 gives educational service centers the authorization to create the CSFD. Butler County would be the second in Ohio to use the new law, which took effect March 30. Stark County ESC has a levy on the August special election ballot. We invite our Edgewood families, staff, and community members to attend Monday’s meeting to learn more about this opportunity. The Board meeting will take place in the Heritage Room at Edgewood High School. The meeting starts at 6:00 p.m.

Three EHS Students Earn the Rank of Eagle Scout

Nick Hobson, Rance Hickman, and Allen Burton recently earned their Eagle Scout rank. Nick earned this rank by designing and building a rolling gear rack for the Seven Mile Volunteer Fire Department. The rack will house the fire fighters' protective gear so they can easily access their equipment when responding to an emergency call. Rance earned his rank by building a storage supply unit for the Art Central Foundation. This unit will provide the Foundation with a place to store supplies as well as a place for students to dry their pottery. Allen's project consisted of building easels for the Butler County Fair. Only 4% of Scouts earn the rank of Eagle. Eagles must earn 21 badges that range from camping to cooking to lifesaving or emergency preparedness. Congratulations to these 3 young men on their outstanding accomplishment!

Flag Day is June 14

Did you know this date has been designated as our Flag's birthday? Although the Fourth of July celebrates America's birthday, the idea of an annual day specifically intended to celebrate our Flag, originated in 1885, by a Wisconsin schoolteacher, BJ Cigrand. The effort of this schoolteacher, along with other over the decades, led to June 14 being designated as the anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777- the date when the "Stars and Stripes" were officially adopted as the flag of the USA!

2018 "Character Spotlight Awards"

On May 25, the last day of school, the Trenton Police Department recognized the 2018 "Character Spotlight Award" winners from the 1st Grade Class at Babeck Early Childhood Center. Congratulations to Jocelyn Baker and Benny Tyler for winning the Trenton PD’s 2018 “Character Spotlight Award.” We would also like to congratulate Josie Witt, Tanner Oaks, Emma Joseph, Victoria Anglin, Gigi Jennings, and Emma Kellett for being nominated for the award by their teachers.

Newport Aquarium donated tickets for each child as prizes for the third year in a row – thank you Newport Aquarium!
