April Letter to Stakeholders

April 3, 2024
Dear Anthony Wayne Stakeholders,
With spring break now behind us, we have less than 40 days left in the 2023-24 school year. This year is passing very quickly, and with the very busy months of April and May ahead, the last day of school will be here before we know it.
Just like the current weather, this year has brought some rainy days and the forecast for the fall is a bit uncertain. But we know that spring sunshine is coming and that as we enter the last weeks of school, there will be many opportunities to celebrate all of the achievements and accomplishments of our staff and students. The number of awards and honors our Generals are earning is truly remarkable.
As we enter the final stretch, I encourage all of our staff, students, families and community members to continue giving your best effort every day. Let’s maintain our focus, enthusiasm, and positivity to ensure that we finish the year strong. 
Remember, each and every one of us has an impact on our students’ education today and their success in the future. Let’s rally together, support one another, and make these last few weeks memorable and impactful for our students.
Dr. Jim Fritz, Superintendent

Paint the Town Purple for Our Military-Connected Students
April is the Month of the Military Child and AWLS is proud that each of its schools is designated as a Purple Star School by the state of Ohio for supporting military-connected students and families. You are encouraged to show your support by helping us paint the town purple during the month of April. We will also recognize our military-connected students at the April 15 Board of Education meeting. 
No School for Solar Eclipse: April 8 
There will be no school for students on Monday, April 8 due to the Total Solar Eclipse. This decision was made under advisement from local law enforcement and emergency management officials who expect an influx of visitors to NW Ohio. We have prepared an informational webpage to help families prepare for viewing and the expected crowds.
Financial Recovery Plan Work Session: April 8
The AWLS Board of Education will hold a work session at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, April 8 to discuss the implementation of the District's Financial Recovery Plan following the failure of the proposed operational levy.

More information about pay-to-participate, transportation, personnel reductions and other details will be shared in the coming weeks.
