Color wheel turns discovery
Students in Alecia McCafferty's art classes at the Junior High were doing some "discovery learning." Through their efforts and only a few clues and definitions from the teacher, they worked in groups and were able to figure out where the colors were located on the wheel by mixing primary colors. 
Soaring to a first-place finish
Nathan Warner's Pencil Pony Power team has won the SOAR Group Challenge for the first nine weeks. Students in the Junior High are members of teams where points are collected for grades, behavior and attendance. Teams also collect points through various challenges throughout each nine weeks. 
Competitors place in top 10 in interview contest
Madison-Plains students placed among the top 10 finishers in their divisions at the Ohio FFA District 6, South Sub district Job Interview Career Development Event competition. The FFA Job Interview CDE is designed for FFA members to develop, practice and demonstrate skills needed for seeking employment in the industry of agriculture.  
Board sets eligibility requirements
The eligibility policy adopted by the Board of Education this month sets a clear standard for all students who participate in extracurricular activities. Those in grades 9-12 who carry less than a 1.5 GPA on a 4.0 scale or who receive more than one failing grade in the previous grading period will not be offered the privilege of participation. 
Best of the Best: We're No. 1
Madison-Plains was voted best school district in the county by the Madison-Press. The publication releases it annual Best of the Best issue each fall. Madison-Plains has shown marked improvement on test scores and is in sound fiscal health after two renewals at the polls last year for operating and permanent improvement dollars. Superintendent Tim Dettwiller, who took over the helm in August, said the district's Improvement Plan that was put in place just more than a year ago has set the district in a clear upward motion. 
Your Schools. Your Choice.
At Madison-Plains, we are serious about parent and community input. Your voices drive what we do for our students. You told us to make our schools stronger, make our courses of study more rigorous and we agreed. Much of your feedback help set the Madison-Plains Improvement Plan into action. And, as a result, we are making strides. 
Extra! Extra! Community fliers now online!
A new section featuring community-wide events and information has been added to the district's website. The M-P Fliers Community Connect page -- available from the Parents and Community tabs -- will serve as a repository for all of the requests the district receives throughout the year to distribute materials to students and their families. Subscribers to the page will receive notifications through an RSS feed. The online clearinghouse creates a streamlined resource for parents and other members of the community.
