Sebring McKinley High School starts the School Year building pride

 

Sebring, OH- Sebring McKinley Junior and Senior High School welcomed students home for the first day of school today.

Instead of spending the entire day in the classroom, students and staff spent the day building school pride. Students watched The Wizard of Oz to learn there is no place like home. Students and staff also worked in small groups completing projects, which reflected similar themes throughout The Wizard of Oz. Just like characters from the movie, students searched for their heart, courage, and brains. Those three themes will be used in the classroom throughout the school year.

“Our school improvement committee feels that heart, courage, and brains are three things that are vital to the success of each student,” said Nicole Mathias, McKinley High School Teacher.

Some Sebring alumni also returned “home,” and told students why they are proud to be a Sebring graduate. The alumni are members of the Sebring Class of 2007. The Trojan alumni were invited back to the school district as part of the All-Star Alumni Series.

"I am very thankful to be here for this All-Star Alumni Series that Sebring is hosting,” said Briana Jones, a 2007 graduate. “I went away for seven years, but came back because there is no place like home.”

Every McKinley student also received a binder, which came with a school planner. Students were also given a bottle of water, granola bars, and other items. Everything was donated by staff members, alumni, community members, and local businesses.

Sebring Local School would like to thank the following for donations:

  • $27.00 donated by cafeteria staff.

  • $25.00 from Z J Howard Class of 1965

  • $25.00 from Mrs. Zeppernick  

  • $500.00 from Scarpitti Foundation

  • $75.00 from Sebring Presbyterian Church
