FORT JENNINGS — The Fort Jennings School Board commended the high school, along with teachers Heather Harmon and Jeff Jostpille, for receiving the Governor’s Thomas Edison Awards for Excellence in Youth Science Opportunities for the 2011-12 school year.
The awards are given out every school year based on such criteria as performance and science fair competitions.
“This is a nice award,” said Superintendent Nicholas Langhals. “It is a nice award that recognizes the hard work they do in the class room.”
The board approved the band trip to Disney World during the 2013-14 school year. The band, which alternates trips between Disney and Chicago, will be traveling on Oct. 30 through Nov. 4, 2013.
In conjunction with this approval, the board also accepted a donation of $3,023.90 from the Activity Boosters to go towards the Band Trip Fund.
Also accepted was a donation from the Fort Jennings Women’s Club in the sum of $567 to go to Student Council.
Fort Jennings Schools entered into an agreement to pay $60 per day for the students at the Wood County Juvenile Detention Center and $50 per day for students in long-term care at the Juvenile Residential Center of Northwest Ohio.
