  • Thanks to Mr. Beardsley, Mr. Walden, and Ms. McDermott for getting up for the past 2 weeks and checking our district roads (around 4 a.m.)...not many people realize the time required to ensure our students safety anytime winter weather strikes, a lot of miles are covered on less than favorable roads… I think I speak for everyone when I say, I hope you are done for the year!!!
  • GREAT JOB to Jody Holland, Dan Barnhouse, and Kyle Wilson for all your hard work keeping our sidewalks and stairs cleared during our snowy last few weeks.

Also, thanks to Bob Blake and Keith Bell for clearing our parking lots!!!
  • Mrs. Williams' 6th Grade Math students did a really neat prime factorization activity using Ohio State football players' numbers. What a GREAT way to get kids excited about Math...and a National Championship!!!

Philo Junior High - High Progress School of Honor
The Ohio Department of Education has named Philo Junior High School a "High Progress School of Honor"! This is based on the 2013-2014 Ohio School Report Card data on student reading and math performance. The program looks at schools with a high percentage of students from economically disadvantaged homes and tracks the performance of all students in these areas for the five most recent years. It spotlights schools that have shown sustained progress in student performance by all students over that time period. There are around 3800 schools in Ohio, and we were 1 of 27 identified for this honor, requirements include: 
  • A school’s combined gains in reading and math proficiency results over the past five school years will need to meet or exceed the 90th percentile of all statewide gains. For example, in 2014 the change from 2014-2010 must meet or exceed the 90th percentile. 
  • If the school has a value-added measure, the school will need to have met or exceeded this measure for the three most recent school years. 
  • Finally, the school’s AMO grade must be an A, B, or C.
