Bogan E-News - September 15, 2017


Picture Day:

    Student’s pictures were taken on Thursday, September 14th.  If you did not order, you can still do so at  Bogan’s Picture Day ID: JC017293Q0  Orders need to be placed by Saturday, September 16. 2017.  



    School districts have always been required to monitor student attendance.  Recently the State of Ohio passed HB 410 which implemented required steps that school districts must follow for all students who do not attend school on a regular basis.  In addition, school attendance is now recorded in hours and not days.  Every minute counts and each day that a student is absent is a little more than 6 hours.    

    Excellent school attendance, 95% or above for each child is our goal. This means a student misses less than 9 days of school in a year - 1 day per month.  Excellent attendance is a great predictor of success in school. We appreciate the support that parents give to see that their child is prepared and attending school on a daily basis.

    As part of the requirements for HB 410, families of students that accumulate an excessive number of absence hours will be notified by mail from their individual school buildings.  Notices will be sent for all absences totaling the following number of hours:  38, 56, 65, 72.  In addition, notices will be be sent and a meeting scheduled for students who reach the following numbers of unexcused absences: 30 consecutive, 42 in a month, 72 in a year.

     If you have any question, please contact the school office.


Destination Imagination

    Destination Imagination is an innovative creative problem-solving program for participants from kindergarten through high school. Teams of 5 to 7 participants are challenged to solve one of five unique Team Challenges and an Instant Challenge with no adult assistance.  Each of the five Challenges offers participants an opportunity to explore art, literature, drama, engineering, architecture, and improvisation. Interest forms have been sent home in today's Friday Folders!

    Our regional tournament will be held in March at Miami University. Teams forming will require a parent or other adult that is willing to volunteer their time to be a team manager.  Free Manager/Coach training sessions are available in the fall.

     It is time to begin forming and registering teams for this year. Please contact me in the near future if you are interested in helping to coach/manage a Destination Imagination team this year. Without managers, we cannot have teams. We will be hosting an information meeting about Destination Imagination on Wednesday, September 27th at 6:30 p.m. in the PDC at the Nelson Morrow Building located at 909 S. Main Street (directly behind SDS pizza). Parents and students are welcome to attend. We will explain the program, how teams are formed, and how to become a team manager. Sign ups will also be available for children interested in participating.

    For more information about this program, go to and explore, or contact:
