Maplewood School's inaugural Turkey Trot took place at SHS stadium on November 9. The event was a part of the school's commitment to the Daily Mile routine, aiming to encourage daily activity among students. All students participated, and the inclusive event invited parents and the wider community. Following the run, INEOS generously provided snacks, and the Kona Ice truck offered refreshing treats for the young participants, creating a fun and active community experience.

Shawnee Township Fire Department provided Fire Safety instruction to all Elmwood students. Students practiced how to stop, drop and roll and how to crawl low to the ground in a smoke filled house. In addition, students learned the importance of changing batteries in their smoke detectors, experienced how a firefighter would look and sound while in full gear, and had their picture taken dressed as a future Shawnee firefighter. Thank you to all the firefighters that supported our children on this fun day. We look forward to it every year!

Day number four of our district-wide Red Ribbon Week was “put a lid on drugs”. Students were allowed to wear hats and they were asked to bring in canned food for the West Ohio Food Bank. Our students donated over 1,300 canned food items between the four buildings. When weighed at the food bank, it totaled 1,348 pounds of food! Pictured is staff from the West Ohio Food Bank with our Mental Health Coordinator Leigh Kempton. High School Principal Dylan Dronberger helped Mrs. Kempton with loading up and taking the food. Thanks to the generosity of our students and families, two vehicles were needed to transport the donations. We would like to say a huge thank you to our Shawnee families! This was a true testament to the amazing students and families we have in our district.
