Hannah Trent signs with Division 2 Ursuline College
Congratulations to Hannah Trent who signed on Thursday, November 13th, to play NCAA Division 2 softball for Ursuline College, located just east of Cleveland. Hannah is the daughter of Kevin and Cindy Trent. She holds two records for Houston, single-season home runs and career home runs, and she has been named 1st team All-SCAL two years in a row. She was recruited to play centerfield for Ursuline, and received athletic and academic scholarships.
Hannah would like to thank her mom, dad, brother, friends, and the community for all of their support through this journey. She is beyond excited to begin her final season at Houston, and expects to help lead them to win the Shelby County League, and go far in tournaments.

The 5th and 6th grade TAG class participated in Shelby County's annual Lego-Robotic Scrimmage on November 6th. Teams from Anna, Botkins, Fairlawn, Houston, and Jackson Center competed in a team building project and STEM activities while putting the core values of First Lego League, which includes cooperation, teamwork, and gracious professionalism, into practice.
The 6th grade TAG Class stated "The engineers that mentored us helped us add more programming to our robot and gave us a tour of some of the robotics in the plant. We also learned about the different jobs that an engineer would have at Honda." Members of the Wild-Bots are Kyle Asher, Gus Gothberg, Maddie Wills, Macy Duhaime, Badin Brewer, Makayla Brelsford, Ryan Ely, McKynna Holbrooks, and Megan Maier.

AmeriGas School Days Program
Thanks to AmeriGas Propane, we are beginning a donation program that benefits the school district. The School Days program allows district residents to turn in their original propane receipts to the school district, and submit them to AmeriGas Propane for a donation. For every gallon shown on those original receipts, our school will earn $.02. Now, that might not seem like a lot of money, but it adds up quickly.
Original receipts can be submitted to the school office anytime, and we will do the rest. Please help us help our school. If you have any questions, please contact Amy Ayers at 295-3010 ext. 3002.
