Warrior Families, We recently found out that our milk supplier has filed for chapter 11 and closed its Cincinnati production facility. We received a shipment of milk from our supplier today and we expect another shipment on Monday. We believe that we have enough milk for the rest of the week. We are not confident that we will receive our milk delivery on Monday and are working on a backup plan. To ensure that every student has something to drink with their meal, we will have water on hand as a backup. If you would like your child to have something other than water, please feel free to send something with them. Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we work to resolve the milk issue. Have a great day and Go Warriors!

On November 13-15, 2019, twenty students from the Springfield-Clark CTC attended the SkillsUSA State Fall Leadership Conference at the Columbus Convention in Columbus, Ohio. While at the conference over 1200 student leaders from Ohio attended leadership-training sessions, learned how to run a school chapter and were privileged to hear from a motivation speaker. On Friday morning, the six regions in Ohio had their regional elections. The Springfield-Clark CTC being a part of the Southwest region had four students who qualified to run for regional office. Our four students ran against twenty-seven students from sixteen different career technical schools. We are happy to say that three of our students were elected into office taking three of the seven offices available at the Southwest regional level. They will serve the Southwest Region of Ohio for the 2019/2020 school year. The new officers will be attending a weeklong training on January 19-24, 2020 in Leesburg Va. and Washington DC, which will include a visit to our nation’s capital. Their specific offices will be assigned during their training in Washington DC. The following students were elected.

Northwestern football players have been seen reading in our first grade classrooms this year. Pictured is senior Korbin Spencer doing just that. Coach Brian Stevens had this to say about what they are doing. "As a football program we are trying to show our players the positive impact that we can have on others around us. We want our players to realize that "little eyes are always watching." We want our players to be role models for the younger students and to understand they have a responsibility to lead and demonstrate positive behaviors for our future students and players."
