I want to begin today by recognizing all those among us who have been a part of the great brotherhood and sisterhood we call the U.S. military—our veterans, active-duty service members, guardsmen and reservists. It is your service and sacrifice that has kept our country safe and free.

No matter which branch you served in, whatever your job path or how many years you served, raising your hand and committing yourself to service in the military was a brave and selfless act. One that resulted in few guarantees—of where you would be assigned; whether and where you might deploy; and, in some cases, if you would return home. Thanks to those who have served and those who continue to serve today.  Military men and women know the risks, but they accept them in many cases so that others won’t have to.

Let’s take a moment and recognize those on our staff who are a part of this elite group. A round of applause in these classrooms would be appropriate.

Mr. Peter Negron – US Army Reserves

Mr. Kevin Bosley – US Army

Mr. Jack Edwards – US Marine Corps

If you missed last night’s volleyball match with the first place Tigers from Springfield,  you missed a masterpiece. Like Rembrandt and Picasso the Lady Vikings stroked the ball with perfection on their way to a 3 set sweep of the visiting Tigers 25-17, 25 -21 and 25 -23. The teams battled tightly in the first set when Junior Haylee Kachner took her service turn with the score 16 all. When the smoke cleared the Haylee had scored 8 straight serves and the Vikings cruised to a 25-17 victory. The second set see sawed back n forth with the home team prevailing on another late set serving gem. This time by junior Memory Lyons as she ran off 5 straight points to give the Vikes a 23-17 lead on their way to a 25 – 21 victory. The third and final set was a barn burner as the tigers came out roaring and took a 15 -11 lead at the mid-point of set three when Junior Brooke Twichell and Senior Mackenzie Brannon reeled off 3 point rallies to pull the Vikings ahead 16-15 and the lady spikers never looked back scratching out a 25-23 victory and a 3 set Sweep of the match. The Lady Vikings Travel to East Palestine on Monday and return home to face Division 1 Barberton on Wednesday.

The Lady Vikings traveled to Jackson-Milton Last night for a conference battle with the Blue Jays. The Vikings struggled to find form in the first set eventually losing 22-25. But Jacksons effort would only wake the sleeping Lion, as the Vikes roared back plucking the Blue Jays 25-16, 25-12, and 25-15 to win the match 3 sets to 1. The Viking offense found form as sophomore outside hitter Brooke Waldeck went off for 13 kills in just 18 attempts. Following her lead Mackenzie Brannon and Hayley Kachner added 11 and 10 kills to punch the lights out for the Jays. Dominating the offensive side was not limited to the Viking front row though. Serving also played a key role as Waterloo saw its best night as 3 Vikes scored in double figures. Brooke Waldeck 15, Memory Lyons 14, and Kearstin Coontz with 12. It was indeed a team total effort. The Vikings will Play Western Reserve in a conference match on Thursday before returning home on Saturday to take on St. Vincent St. Marys. Last nights win pushed the lady Viking record to 6-3 in the conference, and 11-5 overall on the season.

NO SCHOOL - Labor Day (9/3/18)

Seniors who are planning on painting their parking spots, please work on your sketches over the long weekend. They are due to me for approval by Thursday. Painting will be on Saturday, Sept 8th. See Mackensie Deem or FB or Twitter for more details.

There will be a Student Council meeting next Tues during AO in the library.


Parking Lot Announcement: 

Students who enter and exit the school building through the High School  student parking lot need to make sure you are doing the following to ensure your safety both before and after school. 

1.) Always cross at the crosswalks.  Please do not use the middle crosswalk.  Either use the front crosswalk building across from the sidewalk and brick sign at the front of the building or use the back crosswalk directly across from the band hallway doors.  This is very important because it is difficult for cars and buses to see you if you come out from in between two parked cars. 

2.) Do not walk in the grass strip between the parking lot and the road as drivers can not judge whether you are trying to cross the road or just walking.  Walk in the parking lot until you get to a crosswalk and then cross there. 

3.) Please walk with your younger siblings across the road.  Little people are a lot harder to see in the parking lot.  

4.) Wait at the crosswalks until the bus or car stops for you, or you are directed to cross by a staff member.   Be patient even when you might be running behind, your safety is more important than your timeliness.  
 
5.) Also all students should be dropped off and picked up at the front of the building both before and after school. 

Seniors, we will be holding a class meeting in the media center today during AO. I will call you down to remind you. 


Please turn in the green emergency medical form to Mrs. English by next Friday Sept 7th.
