Latest Guidance Updates

Football Throw Contest

The Guidance Department is focusing on “Attitude of Gratitude” for the month of November. We are very thankful for the administration, staff and students here at CG. We decided to have a little fun with our principals, Mr. Calvelage who is an Ohio State fan and Mr. Best who is a Michigan fan. Mr. Best and Mr. Calvelage had a football throwing competition during lunch on Thursday, Nov. 18th to decide who will be the champion and who will have to wear the opposing teams shirt with pride! Mr. Best walked away with the Football Throwing Champion Title. Mr. Calvelage was a good sport and wore a Michigan shirt on Friday! All staff and students K-6 also wore their favorite OSU/Michigan attire Friday and decorated a paper football to display in the cafeteria to get ready for the Big Game over the holiday weekend. Watch the video here!

In addition, the students have maintained their grades while participating in their extracurricular activities. Students will be awarded a certificate, given a small gift and recognized at the Senior Academic Awards Night in May.

Congratulations to Madison Zimmerly for being selected for the October Senior in the Spotlight. Madison is the daughter of Jared and Katie Zimmerly. She was nominated by the Student Council Adviser, Mrs. Pingle, for taking a leadership role during homecoming. Madison went above and beyond her duties the weeks before and of homecoming. She is an outstanding student academically, maintaining a 4.0 GPA in her high school and CCP coursework at Ohio State University. This high GPA is no surprise as she has received outstanding student awards in ten of her classes! She is active in Columbus Grove athletics, where she is a 3-year varsity member of softball. Also, Madison has earned athletic awards. She has been a two year Scholar Athlete, 2nd Team NWC for softball, 1st Team PCL for softball, and 2nd Team Northwest District softball her junior year. Madison is very active in the school too. She participates in National Honor Society, Prom Committee, Leo Club and is a class officer.

While working with Madison, you will find her to be extremely coachable, dedicated and always wanting to challenge herself. She has a great sense of humor and takes constructive criticism very well. With these positive qualities constantly on display, the Columbus Grove High School Guidance is pleased to award the October Senior in the Spotlight to Madison Zimmerly.

After graduation, Madison plans to attend college to study Nursing.

9/11 Stair Climb

On Friday, September 10 Columbus Grove Staff and Students paid tribute to the 343 First Responders who sacrificed their lives to help others. Each participant walked/climbed the equivalent of the 110 stories of the World Trade Center holding a slip of paper with a fallen first responders name on it. Our individual tribute not only remembers the sacrifice of the First Responders but symbolically completes their heroic journey to save others. We can ensure that each of the 343 First Responders are honored and that the world knows that we will never forget.
