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!

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. This is the third year that Trenton PD has partnered with Babeck Elementary for the "Character Spotlight Award" for a first grader. This award is presented to a student who best demonstrated the characteristics of the Trenton Police Department's Mission Statement throughout the 2017-2018 school year. Each first grade teacher was asked to choose a student in their class that they felt met these criteria and to submit a letter of recommendation, and TPD staff votes on the winners.

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

Here is the Trenton Police Department Mission Statement: We, the Trenton Police Department, are committed to the highest standards of honesty, integrity, and dedication to our community.
