Brady students run Great Race

Brady Middle School students wrapped up their final week of school during the first week of June with the annual Domiano’s Great Race. Donning their selected Pride Colors and participating in friendly competition Brady-style, students enjoyed competing in activities at the track (ball-throwing, relays, long jumps), upper field (obstacle course, water balloon launch, tug of war), lower field (basketball, football throw, Fling-It Volleyball) and gymnasium (ultimate Frisbee). All students in grades six through eight participated in the event with medals presented to the winning teams. The annual event was coordinated by alumnus and retired physical education teacher Nancy Domiano, who founded the event decades ago, along with teachers Andy Apple, Lindsay Long and dozens of staff members, colleagues and parents who volunteered their time to make the two-day event so memorable.

Retirees recognized

Orange Schools 2019 retirees were honored by colleagues and administrators at the annual end-of-the-year staff appreciation luncheon. Superintendent Dr. Lynn Campbell thanked Assistant Treasurer Connie Enders, bus driver Ann Marie Schneider, maintenance employee Chris Spena, teacher Gay Yonkers and EMIS Coordinator Lynette Tercek for all of their years of service to the district. The lunch was provided by the Orange Schools administration and the Orange PTAs.

OHS receives high marks

Orange High School was ranked fourth in Greater Cleveland in the US News and World Report 2019 Metro Area Rankings for Best High Schools that was released earlier this month. This is the second time this year OHS has been recognized by the publication. In April, OHS earned a Best High School National Award (score of 97/100) in the publication’s annual Best High Schools in America list. Awards were based on schools’ performances on state assessments and how well students are prepared for college.
