Recently, Anthony Wayne Board of Education Members had the opportunity to see this beautiful quilt made from approximately 200 silk neckties. This quilt was made by student volunteers in grades 6-8; Penta Career Center staff; Anthony Wayne staff; members of Ohio Quilts of Valor; members of Gathering of Quilters; as well as members of Anthony Wayne Quilting. Over 1300 years of combined sewing experience collaborated to design and sew this quilt . In total there are over 200 hours of time volunteered to make this project a reality. Supplies were donated by the Penta Career Center and Anthony Wayne Staff.
After the quilt was completed, Ms. Schaller’s Textile and Design class hosted a quilt appraiser. The appraiser spoke about the variety of jobs in the industry, her qualifications, and quilt appraising. She used the size of the quilt, materials used, difficulty of the pattern design, quality of workmanship, color, and other characteristics of the quilt to determine its value. This one-of-a-kind quilt is appraised at $750.
The quilt will be raffled off at the Spirit of Giving Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser that will be held on Friday, February 16, 2018. Tickets can be purchased at junior high and high school basketball games, through junior high FCCLA members and from Ms Schaller at Anthony Wayne Junior High or Mrs. Rhonda Kistner at Fallen Timbers Middle School. Tickets cost $2 per ticket or $5 for three tickets. The winning ticket will be drawn on Friday, February 16, 2018 at the Anthony Wayne Spirit of Giving Spaghetti Dinner

AWHS Agriculture Teacher Selected for National Educator Award
Whitney Short, AWHS agricultural teacher, is one of only six individuals nationwide who received the 2017 National Agriscience Teacher of the Year Award. The award was presented on December 7 at the National Association of Agricultural Educators’ annual convention in Nashville.
The National Agriscience Teacher of the Year award recognizes teachers who have inspired and enlightened their students through engaging and interactive lessons in the science of agriculture.
Although it is located at Anthony Wayne High School, the agriculture program is actually a satellite of the Penta Career Center. When Short realized that enrollment was declining, she renewed student interest by creating an agriculture biotechnology pathway. Through the new course of study, students have the opportunity to explore biotech in both animal and plant systems. The popularity of the new pathway has led Short to steadily increase science-based agriculture offerings at Anthony Wayne.
An integral piece of the agriculture program at Anthony Wayne is project-based learning. In the Chicken Challenge, students conduct an experiment to evaluate a broiler chicken’s rate of weight gain using a variety of feeds. Students care for the chickens until they are ready for butchering, which is done with student help at a certified processing facility. The project teaches students about food safety, technical writing, animal welfare, marketing and communication. Through these kinds of rigorous and relevant experiences students leave Short’s program better prepared for college and careers.
Each of the six National Agriscience Teacher of the Year Award winners was recognized at the NAAE convention in Nashville. The National Agriscience Teacher of the Year Award is sponsored by Herman & Bobbie Wilson as a special project of the National FFA Foundation.
NAAE is the professional organization in the United States for agricultural educators. It provides its’ more than 8,000 members with professional networking and development opportunities, professional liability coverage, and extensive awards and recognition programs. The mission of NAAE is “professionals providing agricultural education for the global community through visionary leadership, advocacy and service.” The NAAE headquarters are in Lexington, Kentucky.

Whitehouse Drinking Water
The District received the attached notice from the Village of Whitehouse concerning the latest testing that was completed on the drinking water that is supplied to the Whitehouse area. With this testing event it was determined the same issue exists as was previously found in the last water assessment. We feel it is important to share this notice in order for you to determine if you would prefer to supply your student(s) with water from a different source (e.g., bottled). The District will continue to communicate with Village officials concerning this matter. If you have any questions concerning the notice or the water supply, the Village has offered to take all questions. You may call Steve Pilcher at 419-877-5383.
