BOGAN E-NEWS 3/11/22


School News and Information

Happy Friday, everyone! We’d like to take the opportunity to remind everyone that Pokemon cards, pop-its, and other treasures need to be left at home.  It’s exciting to show and share these special treasures, but so often friends will trade items and then feelings are hurt.  We will keep reminding students on the announcements, but would appreciate your support reminding them to keep these special treasures safe at home.  Big thanks to everyone who participated in conferences!  


Thank you to everyone that donated food and drinks for our conference night this week!  Thank you to the PTG for organizing our meals. 


There is a PTG meeting on Thursday, March 17, 2022 at 7:00pm in the Bogan cafeteria.


Now that we are having some warmer weather, please be mindful of the volume of your music while waiting in the car pick up line during school hours.

Gambling Awareness

March is Problem Gambling/Gaming Awareness Month.  The earlier individuals are introduced to gambling, the more likely they are to become problem gamblers as adults.  Many of the video games and apps our youth are involved in simulate the same excitement experienced by gamblers. According to Ohio for Responsible Gambling, 10% - 14% of youth ages 12-17 are at risk; possibly made worse by the pandemic.  Resources are available for parents, students and educators through Change the Game Ohio.  Visit the site at
