Heroes Among Us
The Lutz students and staff are focusing on the
“Heroes Among Us” this school year. Students are invited to appear on our morning Eagle TV to share
their stories with everyone. So far this year Hailey Stearns, Evan Souders and Taylor Ruppert have been
recognized for their accomplishments. Hailey earned Grand Champion Beef Feeder at the Sandusky County
Fair this summer. Evan raised over $140 to donate to the Alexa Brown Memorial 5K Run in September by
selling baked goods at a local supermarket. Evan completed the race with a time of 41 minutes and 48
seconds. Taylor cut 10” of her hair and donated it to Wigs for Kids, a non-profit organization that
helps pediatric cancer patients. Also, numerous students have been recognized for their talents on the
sports fields this fall season. We are very proud of our student heroes!

Croghan Named A School of Promise
The FCS Board of Education recognized the Croghan faculty and staff at the Board of Education Meeting
held on October 21st for being named a School of Promise by the Ohio Department of Education.
The Schools of Promise award program recognizes schools attaining solid student achievement in reading and
mathematics while serving a significant number of economically disadvantaged students. As an incentive to help close
achievement gaps in Ohio, the Ohio Department of Education developed the Schools of Promise program to identify,
recognize and highlight schools that are making substantial progress in ensuring high achievement for all
Schools of Promise must have a 75% or better average proficiency rate on the Ohio Achievement Assessments
and Ohio Graduation Tests for the 2012-2013 school year. They must also have a 75% proficiency rate in two subgroups;
an A or B grade for their annual measurable objective for narrowing performance gaps between groups of
students on the local report card; an A, B or C progress on the local school report card; and a graduation rate of A or B.
The schools also must serve 40% or more economically disadvantaged students. This year Ohio awarded 141 Schools
of Promise including Croghan Elementary School.
