Port Clinton Middle School opening delayed

Anything worth having is worth the wait … that includes a state-of-the-art middle school. Port Clinton City School District officials recently learned that the building will not be completed for the first day of school on Sept. 5. Students and staff will start the new school year in the existing middle school on Fourth Street. The plan is to moved students and staff into the new building in October.
“We are very pleased with the design of the building and cannot move into a building that is not ready for students and staff,” said Pat Adkins, Superintendent of Schools. “The community has waited a long time for new school facilities and this is too important to rush. Twenty years from now we will be measured by the quality of the building not a starting date.”
The school district is fortunate to have the existing middle school on Fourth Street so that students and staff have a familiar location for classes to take place. A letter with the changes to orientations and open houses has been sent home to parents of Port Clinton Middle School students.

Buckeye band marching into PC

Friday, Sept. 28, was going to be a very special day for the Port Clinton City School District and now, it is going to be outstanding!
That night The Ohio State Marching Band will perform at the Redskins football game, thanks to a request submitted by the Ohio State Alumni Club of Ottawa County. According to Mike Snider and Mike Libben, co-presidents of the club, the band will stop in PC on its way to East Lansing for the Michigan State-OSU game.
Libben, an OSUMB Alum, said it’s a tremendous honor to have the band in our area.
“We are very excited that TBDBITL (The Best Damn Band In The Land) choose to return to Ottawa County again this year,” he said. “It’s the third visit in six years. That frequency of visits in one area doesn’t happen unless we as a community are doing something right to make their trip worthwhile.”
