We are so very blessed with talented students and faculty members! Incredible things have taken place over these last few months. Let me share some of those with you. Last Friday, at the Ohio State University Agriculture day our 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders were pleased to be there to top off the studies about the farm. They also were surprised to find out that three of our 5th graders were among 600 students who participated in an essay contest on How weather affects farming. Madeleine McDonald placed 2nd, while Corey Hall and Juan Durano tied for 6th place. Congratulations to these three young people for representing us so well. Thanks to Mrs. Hollingshead for her work with the students in getting these essays in the contest.
