At its October 22nd regular meeting, the B-C-S School District Board of Education approved an updated five year financial forecast that shows the district remains on the fiscally responsible track. The updated forecast showed, for example, that B-C-S Schools ended Fiscal Year 2013 (that ended on June 30, 2013) in the black for the first time in five years. Salaries and benefits for employees were reduced by $2 million dollars from Fiscal Year 2012 to Fiscal Year 2013. In addition, all other district expenses were reduced by approximately $450,000 during the same time period.

Port Clinton’s first Christkindl Markt

We believe that the health and welfare of our communities is dependent upon the success of the arts. Art is not a frivolous endeavor, it is essential to the human creative spirit.

The history and traditions of Christmas in Germany are rich and varied.  Some of our more popular songs such as "Silent Night" originated in Germany.  The name we often use for Santa Claus, Kris Kringle, was created from "Christ Child".  From this evolved one of the best loved traditions in Germany, the Christkindl Markt, an outdoor Christmas Market which is an annual festival in German culture.

ICS had a Boo-tiful Day

Along with Miss Mary Heschel and Miss Michelle Wojociechowski, the 4 year olds in the morning ICS Preschool class show off their costumes.

Lucky for everyone, there were plenty of superheroes there as well to save the day. Immaculate Conception Preschool held its annual Halloween party on Wednesday the 30th and Thursday the 31st and the highlight, as always, was the costume parade through the building.
