Philo Junior High School - Awarded Straight A Grant!
As we begin the 2014-2015 school year, we are going to be incorporating personalized learning in every aspect of your student’s education. Late last school year; Philo Junior High School was awarded the Straight A Grant through the state of Ohio. The Straight A Grant is designed to achieve significant advancement in student achievement and drive more resources to the classroom.

With the awarded funds, the Philo Junior High School will be able to loan each student an Apple iPad for the entire Academic Year! By embracing this opportunity, both teachers and students will develop skills vital for the 21st century. However, this opportunity means more than that. Students will learn the critical thinking and workplace skills needed to have a successful future. Additionally, our students will have the opportunity to collaborate with others, solve complex problems, develop new forms of communication and leadership skills, and become more productive and motivated!

Coming Soon!
The Philo High School Field Ecology classes have been developing 1/3 to 1/2 acre into a Prairie. The site will be planted with grasses and forbs (flowering plants) that are native to Ohio and would have been found in a tall-grass prairie typical of Ohio.

This project has been ongoing for several years. I could write pages about prairies and the benefits of using native plants in landscapes but like me most of you don’t have time to read long passages.

Please take the time to view the power point here and to visit the following website:

I would appreciate any comments or questions regarding this project at
