Manchester Local School District Board of Education Receives "Gold Level" Effective School Board Award

The Manchester Local School District Board of Education receives the 'Effective School Board Award' for 2018, from the Ohio School Boards Association for the 10th year in a row!

The purpose of the award is to provide a tool for self-evaluation of a school board and to provide a planning tool that can be used throughout the year for ensuring that the work of the board gets done. This is not a competition but rather an instrument that defines specific steps and actions that can be taken by the board to meet district goals.  The community and the school team play a major role in achieving this award. The OSBA Southwest Region Executive Committee developed this award to recognize school boards who are doing outstanding work in the region. The award was given at the OSBA Southwest Region Spring Conference in Lebanon on March 12, 2019.  Mr. Richard Foster, Board President, Mrs. Kathleen Stacy, Board Vice-President, Mr. Dave McFarland, Board Member & Mr. Brian Rau, Superintendent were present to receive the prestigious award.

Emma Grooms - SpaceX Project Updates: "Blast off" Program & Beyond

        We were first notified in July, 2018, by the South Centeral Ohio Educational Service Center, that one of our students, Ms. Emma Grooms-a Sophomore at MHS, had recieved a Summer Enrichment scholarship from the SCOESC and the Ohio Association of Gifted Children.  Ms Grooms would attend the "Blast Off" Program at Morehead State University. Her team's experiment won and was chosen to be sent to the International Space Station in November. 
      "Blast Off" is a five-day residential camp that exposes students to exomedicine - a new frontier in medical research and innovation. In the "Blast Off" Program, students work closely with biology educators at Morehead State University to explore biological processes that may be affected by a microgravity environment. "Blast Off" participants compete in teams to design an experiment that will be built by a company called Space Tango and carried out on the International Space Station. Emma's team's experiment was launched aboard SpaceX CRS-16 from Cape Canaveral on December 4, 2018 . Emma and her team were invited by NASA to give a presentation about their experiment at Kennedy Space Center on the day of the launch and to then attend the launch (watching from the Banana Creek Launch Viewing Area).  
      Twyman Clements, co-founder and CEO of Space Tango, reports to Jen Carter at the Craft Academy that they are recieving some amazing information from the experiment that Emma and her team created!  The above photos, recieved in late February, show Emma's Project relating to E.coli floating on the International Space Station.
