Envirothon Team Wins State Championship!

LaBrae's 2015 Envirothon Teams

The Envirothon is designed to stimulate, reinforce and enhance interest in the environment and natural resources among high school students. The Envirothon tests students' knowledge of soils, forestry, wildlife, aquatic ecology and current environmental issues. In addition, the Envirothon encourages cooperative decision-making and team building. While each student on an Envirothon team is challenged to contribute his or her personal best, the score that counts at the end of an Envirothon is the team score. It is sponsored by the Ohio Federation of Soil and Water Conservation Districts (OFSWCD) in cooperation with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR). Natural resource and environmental specialists from many agencies, organizations, colleges, universities, park districts and businesses devise the Envirothon questions and staff the various test stations.

In May, both LaBrae teams, A and B, won the Envirothon Region 2 competition earning the opportunity to compete at the state level.  On June 9th the LaBrae Team A made up of Maddie Cope, Caleb Hineman, Joey Jaros, Alexus Nubani and Tessa Smith placed 1st in the State of Ohio at the State Envirothon Competition at Mohican State Park.  Winning the State Championship qualifies LaBrae Team A for the national competition in Springfield, Missouri.  LaBrae's A Team will be competing July 27th- August 2nd at the National Conservation Foundation - Envirothon Competition.

Also qualifying for the state competition was LaBrae Team B made up of Casey Dean, Emily Engler, Donald Fenstermaker, Allison Middleton and Alexis Wilson, which placed 12th in the state. LaBrae High School science teacher Mr. Craig Klotzbach serves as the advisor to our Envirothon teams. Congratulations to both teams on perpetuating the legacy of LaBrae's strong performances at the Envirothon competitions.  Moreover, LaBrae Local Schools congratulates Team A and Mr. Klotzbach for bringing home their first Envirothon state championship!

Students Entering 7th Grade Needs Proof of Tetanus Booster

Attention all Parents of 6th grade students: The Ohio Department of Health requires all students entering 7th grade to show proof of a tetanus booster.  Please send in a copy of your child’s shot record that shows the date of his/her booster shot.  If your child has NOT had his/her booster please make arrangements for him/her to get the shot & provide documentation to the clinic.  Please contact your child’s healthcare provider to determine if he/she has the Tdap shot, or needs to schedule an appointment to get one.  Immunizations are also available at the Trumbull County Health Department.  If you go to the health department you MUST take your child’s shot record with you.  They will not immunize without the shot record. Their phone number is 330-675-2590.  You may find a schedule of their immunization clinics on their website www.tcbh.org.  The health department has changed their vaccine payment requirement in 2013.  Please call them or check their website for specific information.  Please make arrangements to have this done over the summer and turn in the documentation at the beginning of the school year.  Documentation is due by September 30, 2015.  If you are making an appointment with a Doctor’s office, schedule it now as they get very booked at the end of the summer, and sometimes run out of vaccines.  If you have any questions please email me at sharron [dot] harperatneomin [dot] org , or call me at school at 330-898-0800. 

Thank you, Mrs. Harper, School Nurse

Elementary School Construction Project Update

LaBrae Local Schools was awaiting the completion of a study being conducted by the Ohio Schools Facilities Commission, or OSFC, and pending the outcome of the study, a determination would have been made by the LaBrae Board of Education whether to move forward with a construction project for elementary students in grades K-2.  LaBrae was notified late last week of the results of the study, which was comprised of a facility study and an enrollment analysis and projection.  While the current state of the facility warrants replacement, according to the Commission, the OSFC has informed LaBrae that due to a low enrollment projection, the Commission will not commit funds to any construction project.  In essence, the Commission projects that the future enrollment of the District is not sufficient enough to warrant a state-funded project.  Thus, the District will move forward with continued use of Bascom Elementary well into our future.  The LaBrae Board of Education is committed to using our resources to continue to make Bascom Elementary an optimal environment for teaching and learning.  Should you have questions regarding this matter please contact the superintendent's office at 330.898.1393.  

School Calendar Adjusted Due to Calamity Days

As a result of this winter's inclement weather and subsequent school cancellations, the Board of Education has approved the final school calendar for the 2014-2015 school year. The revised calendar will require that LaBrae students in grades K-11 make up the hours of instruction equivalent to one day.  Therefore, Friday, May 29, 2015 is the last student day for the year.  Remember, this is also an early release day for students.

Epi Pens or Inhalers

Parents, spring will be here eventually. If your child carries an Epi Pen or inhaler with him/her during school, please make sure the medication is in their book bag and is not expired.  The changing weather brings pollens & bees with it.  Students who require these medications must have them accessible during school hours.  Thank you Mrs. Harper/ School Nurse
