A Message From Adena Superintendent John Balzer Dear Students, The staff of Adena Schools miss you. We know we need to stay close to home, so we thought you might like some reading practice- signs your teachers made are displayed in this slideshow for you to enjoy. (Thank you to Ben Buchwalter and for creating this show along with everything else you are doing for us! Also, Thanks to Erica Cormany for making it phone friendly!) Students, remember you are missed, you are loved, you are valued and you are not forgotten. Even though we can’t be together at school each day, your teachers and all the staff- bus drivers, cooks, custodians, aides and attendants, and all the administrators are still working to make sure you are ok and learning during this time. You are blessed to live, grow and learn here in the village. Even though you might feel bored, lonely and maybe a little nervous, remember- all of us are connected. Keep your heads held high. This will pass. Together we will move forward and succeed. We are Americans, we are Buckeyes, and we are Warrior Strong! Enjoy the slides and keep working hard. Be brave, kind and strong. Be patient. We will celebrate when this is over! Sincerely, Mr. Balzer https://youtu.be/zsJKJV4hgtQ
