Spring Break and Make-up Days
In order to receive extra calamity days, we need to serve four make-up days.  We will go to school on May 30th.  We will have Spring Break March 24 - 28, however, students will need to do three days' worth of Blizzard Bag work to be counted as three make-up days.

Blizzard Bag assignments will be given to students on Friday, March 21.  Assignments will also be available on our website by clicking the Blizzard Bag button.  Students will be counted absent if they do not turn in their assignments.  

Make-up day 1 will be May 30, 2014.
(Calamity Day 6)
Make-up day 2 - 4 will be 3 days' of Blizzard Bags. (Calamity Day 7, 8, 9)
Waived Day (Calamity Day 10 & 11)
 
ID-R-Kids Program
Obtaining an ID card for our school age children from grades K-10 makes common sense for so many reasons.  Not only does it provide a photo for law enforcement in the event that a child is reported missing it will also assist in getting in touch with parents or guardians in an emergency.  It also permits parents or guardians to be notified if the child is hospitalized due to a serious health problem or injury.

Ohio ID cards can be obtained at any deputy registrar location at a cost of $8.50.  Click here to see the ID R Kids for Safety and the Next of Kin brochures or visit www.bmv.ohio.gov.

What is the GEF?
The Garaway Education Foundation (GEF) is a non-profit group that raises money for scholarships to be given to deserving Garaway students each spring. The goal of the group is to raise a sum of money that will draw enough interest to provide scholarships each year without touching the principal. This year, there is enough interest money to provide (4) $1,000 scholarships. There is currently $200,000 in the Scholarship Fund. Please consider the following: a donation, giving in memory of a loved one, or giving as a tribute to recognize a Garaway Grad and their accomplishments. The most recent fundraiser brought Rick Smith Jr., magician and Guinness world record card thrower, to the Garaway High Gymnasium. A total of $575 was added to the scholarship fund. If you would like to contribute to the GEF, any amount is appreciated. You may send checks to Garaway Education Foundation, PO Box 340, Sugarcreek, Oh 44681.
