A reminder that the annual Post Secondary Options meeting for those high school students who plan to take any form of college course next year (PSEO, Dual Enrollment, or AP) has been rescheduled.

Did you know that nearly 35% of the students who attend Columbus Grove Schools qualify for the Federal Government’s Free/Reduced Lunch Program? Research shows that children living with hunger insecurity are more likely to be negatively impacted in terms of cognitive and physical growth as well as fighting infection. According to the National Hunger Study, families in poverty are many times forced into having to choose between food and other basic necessities, such as rent, utilities and medical care.
To address the challenges these families face, a new community program entitled Bless a Bulldog will help serve our needy children in Columbus Grove Schools. This program will supply these children with two breakfasts, two lunches, and two dinners on the weekends. The first target date for food distribution is Friday, February 14th. Please click here to learn more about this program.
