December 7, 2023
As December begins, so begins basketball, wrestling, gymnastic and bowling seasons. Thank you to the Maumee Athletic Boosters for hosting a Maumee Madness event on November 27 to introduce winter athletes, cheerleaders and dance team members. Our student-athletes are poised for excellence and ready to showcase their dedication, teamwork and sportsmanship. Winter 2024 is shaping up to be a competitive athletic season in the Northern Buckeye Conference, and I am confident it will be filled with much success for this community’s young people.
Maumee City Schools Community Transitions Board Of Education Members
The school district will welcome two new board of education members and say goodbye to two members in January.
Andrea Ankenbrandt and Allison Fiscus will be sworn in on Monday, January 8 at 5:30 p.m. Mike Wiley and Diane Balcerzak did not seek re-election on November 7, and Mr. Wiley recently said this in an article published in our community newsletter, SchoolNotes: “Board of Education members strive to leave their school district better than when they were elected. I am proud to have served as president of Maumee’s board of education, which cares deeply and works tirelessly for the Maumee City Schools community. I wish nothing but the best for the two incoming board members. Maumee is, and always will be, a great place to live and learn.”
The schedule of board meetings for 2024 will be voted on at this meeting, and you can always find the meeting schedule and meeting minutes posted on the school district website. The public is always invited to attend board of education meetings.
Strategic Planning Group Finishes Final Meeting
This week, we conclude a series of four meetings with a group of community members and staff who helped the school district craft a new five-year strategic direction. Professionals from Ohio School Boards Association staff worked with this team to have essential discussions about moving the school district forward.
These are the areas where our strategic plan will be centered: future-ready academics, future-ready facilities, family and community engagement, and mental health and wellness for students and staff. Look for details that will be shared in the coming weeks and months, but at this time, I want to thank the team members for giving approximately 12 hours for this important work: Jim Amspoker, Andrea Ankenbrandt, Jason Armstrong, Diane Balcerzak, Kim Barboza, Mikayla Becker, Julianne Bekker, Alex Burton, Matt Bush, Allison Debo, Matt Dick, Jason Dugan, Jennifer Dugan, Allison Fiscus, Maria Herman, Lori Hinde, Kelsey Kaczala, Mark Karchner, Penny Kidd, Steve Lee, Michele Loboschefski, Aimee Mendelsohn, Nick Neiderhouse, James Nino, Christine Offenbacher, Anna Ohashi, Scott Perrotte, Stephanie Piechowiak, Michelle Poeppelmeier, Rachael Salazar, Dan Samuel, Tricia Samuel, Nancy Sayre, Michelle Shafer, Jamie Tscherne, Ruth Uhl, Nancy Westrick, Mike Wiley, Angie Wojcik, Janet Wolff, Marcia Wolford and Kristen Zilke.
MHS Senior Taylor Lewis Named National Merit Commended Student
Approximately 1.3 million high school students take the preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) each year in a quest to be named a National Merit Finalist.
This year, Maumee High School senior Taylor Lewis became one of only about 34,000 students to receive National Merit Commended status. He received a perfect score on the math portion of the PSAT, which is a huge accomplishment. He plans to pursue a degree in chemical engineering.
Maumee Athletes Have Record-Setting Fall Season
Congratulations to both the girls and boys varsity soccer teams for making it to regional-level play in this year’s Division II tournament. The girls team won its second straight Division II district title, and the boys team broke almost every school record, finishing the season 19-1-1.
The volleyball team finished 12-13 and won another Division II sectional title.
Lucy Porter advanced to her third straight Division II regional cross country meet, and Maumee Middle School students Arriana Dugan and Lillian Porter qualified for the state middle school cross country tournament.
Congratulations to all of these Maumee athletes.
Junior Panthers Basketball Program Now Bigger & Better Than Ever
The Northern Buckeye Conference (NBC) offers league-organized competition between member school districts beginning in third grade. Boys and girls basketball league play will start soon.
Maumee currently has more than 120 students in second through sixth grade participating in our Junior Panthers basketball program. Maumee High School coaches and student-athletes work with these younger students to help them learn basketball fundamentals and game skills. Having this many students interested in playing basketball for Maumee bodes well for our middle and high school basketball programs in the coming years.
Five-Year Financial Forecast Adopted By School Board On November 27
I am proud to report the school district’s financial position is strong thanks to the ongoing community support we receive through property tax levy funding combined with strategic and responsible use of local, state and federal funds we receive.
The board of education adopted a new five-year financial forecast prepared by our treasurer Paul Brotzki at its November 27 meeting. While we will soon face a deficit spending situation due to rising costs and stagnant revenue, we continue to have strong student academic and extracurricular programs in place. This continues to be accomplished without seeking additional support from taxpayers for the last five and a half years (May 2018).
The Community Is Extremely Generous To School District During The Holidays
We want to recognize the community groups and businesses that are providing financial and in-kind support to our students and staff this holiday season.
Thank you to: First Presbyterian Church (coats and winter gear for our youngest Panthers and meals for families in need), an anonymous local family (Secret Santa gifts for 125 of our youngest Panthers), Toledo Old Newsboys (winter coats and boots), Maumee United Methodist Church (gifts for families in need and teacher treats), Herb’s Heroes (toys and clothing for families in need), SkyZone Holland (25 passes for MMS student rewards) and Boy Scout Troop 199 (meals for families).
MHS Students Served As Cabin Leaders At Fifth-Grade Outdoor Education Camp
Attending the fifth-grade outdoor education program at Camp Michindoh is a rite of passage in Maumee City Schools. Lessons taught during this sleep-away camp meet the academic content standards and benchmarks for fifth-grade science and social studies by allowing students to explore nature and learn about the outdoors and native wildlife and peoples.
In addition to our fifth-grade teachers and the camp leaders from Michindoh supporting the students, a group of Maumee High School students also went along. We strive to find ways for our older students to work with our younger students in curricular areas and athletics.
Students Interested In College Credit Plus Must Attend January 24 Zoom Meeting
Students interested in the College Credit Plus (CCP) program, and their parents, need to join a Zoom meeting on Wednesday, January 24 at 6:30 p.m. This is when details and expectations of participation will be shared with families.
I can tell you that members of the MHS Class of 2023 earned a combined 1,636 college semester credit hours through the Maumee High School College Credit Plus program. That is more than $370,000 worth of college credit savings.
There is a CCP page on the school district website that includes more detailed information. Parents should watch for the Zoom link that will be shared via our SchoolMessenger alert system closer to the meeting date.

Academics, Athletics & Activities: 23-24 School Year Well Underway
We are well into the school year, with the end of the first quarter for our kindergarten through eighth-grade students coming up on Friday, October 20 and the end of Maumee High School’s first trimester on Thursday, November 9. Rehearsals for our fall play, Vintage Hitchcock, are in full swing, and I invite you to come out to the Performing Arts Center at Maumee High School to support our students on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, November 3, 4 and 5.
We will offer indoor walking at the Administration Office building and Maumee Middle School again this fall and winter. Walking begins on Monday, October 16. Details can be found on the homepage of the school district website at www.maumee.k12.oh.us.
We are pleased with our warm welcome into the Northern Buckeye Conference by all the NBC member schools. There have been some excellent contests, and Maumee student-athletes have earned accolades in most sports. Tournament schedules and winter sports schedules will be posted on the ATHLETICS page of our school district website and our social media channels.
New School District Strategic Plan Currently Under Construction
More than 30 school district stakeholders (students, staff, community members and local leaders) are meeting four times this fall to review data and strategize together to forge the district’s new multiyear strategic plan. A big thank-you goes to the 446 community members who responded to the school district’s survey asking what they believe are our areas of strength and where they think we have room for improvement. We will use this data during our meetings.
We know that having a comprehensive strategic plan that clearly defines our vision for the future, daily mission, shared values, top priorities and aligned goals and strategies is essential for a school district to remain at the forefront of educational advancements.
State Report Card Ratings Just Released
Maumee City Schools earned an overall score of 4 out of 5 stars, which the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) defines as “exceeding state standards.” However, we view any rating where we did not earn 5 stars as an opportunity for improvement. The report card is full of data that we will thoroughly analyze to identify where we excel and where we see room for the most significant improvement. In addition to report card data, we use other sources of student learning data to make decisions at the classroom, school and district levels.
Maumee City Schools Overall Rating – 4 Stars.
Graduation Rating – 5 Stars.
Gap Closing Rating – 5 Stars.
Achievement Rating – 4 Stars.
Progress Rating – 3 Stars.
Early Literacy – 3 Stars.
Note: Report card ratings are based on achievement tests taken by students in the 2022-23 school year.
We are incredibly proud of earning 5 stars for Gap Closing and Graduation. ODE defines a 5-star rating as “significantly exceeds state standards.” Our ratings in these two categories demonstrate long-term student growth and success.
Early Literacy measures only scores for kindergarten through third-grade students. Early literacy continues to be a significant area of focus for us. Elementary teachers teach by employing the “science of reading,” we have a new phonics curriculum in place and our teachers are midway through the two-year LETRS training initiative. These strategies are in place so we can meet our youngest students where they come to us educationally and propel them forward to not only meet but exceed state standards in every grade.
Parent Education Series Restarted This School Year; Upcoming: Teen Substance Abuse, Including Vaping
In August, city officials, first responders, school district administrators and staff gathered to discuss community and school safety and security. The presentation shared at the meeting and a brief Q&A can be found on the school district website, www.maumee.k12.oh.us (homepage and Flyer Central).
September was Suicide Prevention Month, and Maumee City Schools hosted an educational program that addressed mental health issues teens are facing. The presentation, titled Ending the Silence was presented by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Greater Toledo, and Maumee High School sophomore Hala Jabri also spoke to attendees. Twelve local agencies and organizations attended to share resources and answer questions. An upcoming program is in the planning stage and will address substance abuse, including vaping.
Let me end by saying that we are committed to continuing the outstanding programs and services that Maumee City Schools is known for as we strive to live out our mission: Maumee City Schools is a community that invests in every child, every day, to ensure all students find their success.

New Year, New Names, New Opportunities Await Returning School Staff And Students
The summer is flying by! We will have our students back in our schools beginning on Friday, August 18, for a staggered start across all grade levels. Staff will be back starting Monday, August 14 for a week of professional development programming, including our annual safety-training day.
School buses are rolling the weeks of July 24 and July 31 for the last two weeks of our K-5 Summer Camp, being held this year at Fort Miami. Thank you to the community for always watching for our students as they arrive and depart from their bus stops, and thank you for your patience when we have to make frequent stops during morning and afternoon runs.
Fall Athletes In Grades 7-12 Already Back In Action
Football, volleyball, boys and girls soccer, boys and girls cross country, boys and girls golf, girls tennis, cheerleading, dance team and the marching band are all back and hard at work preparing for the fall sports season. I encourage you to come out to contests to cheer on our athletes. We enter the Northern Buckeye Conference (NBC) this fall, and we are looking forward to contests with some new opponents.
Senior citizens (60 years and older) who live within the school district boundaries are invited to attend our home athletic contests – free of charge – with their Maumee Golden Panther card. You can obtain a Golden Panther card by calling (419) 893-3200. Cardholders do not need to go online for an event ticket. Just show your Golden Panther card at the ticket booth/table for any event (Maumee Middle School and Maumee High School) for free admission.
Visit Us At Summer Fair On Saturday, August 12
The Maumee City Schools and Panther Pride Foundation will be in uptown Maumee again this summer to take part in the Summer Fair. Be sure to stop by our booths, where we will offer giveaways and games (with prizes). New this year, we will have a drawing for stuffed panther toys throughout the day.
MHS Alumni Invited To Football Game, All-Alumni Event On Friday, August 18
Thanks to the efforts of an alumni committee and the Panther Pride Foundation, the “MHS All-Alumni” event will be held in conjunction with the Maumee vs. Springfield football game on Friday, August 18. Gates open at 6:00 p.m., and tickets for the game are $7.00 for adults and $5.00 for students. Maumee City Schools students in grades K-3 are admitted free when accompanied by a parent purchasing a ticket. MHS alums are encouraged to stop by the Alumni Center, named for Dr. James L. Chappuis, M.D., FACS, ’72. The Dr. James Chappuis Alumni Center will be open to adults to mingle and see the newest renovations made to this space. Event T-shirts will be available to the first 300 alums who stop by. Follow the Panther Pride Foundation on Facebook for more details.
Please Join Us On Tuesday, August 29 For The 2023 Community Safety Forum
Mark your calendar for this year’s Community Safety Forum that will be held in the Performing Arts Center at Maumee High School. School district officials will be teaming up with Maumee police and fire departments, city of Maumee staff and city council members to present information about school and community safety. The forum begins at 6:30 p.m. More information will be shared out closer to the event date.
Two Schools Have New Names This Fall: Maumee Middle & Maumee Intermediate
If you have yet to hear the news, I am excited to tell you that Gateway Middle School has been renamed Maumee Middle School, and Wayne Trail Elementary School is now Maumee Intermediate School. The school district has been considering these name changes for several years.
Maumee has only one school that educates our sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders and one school that educates our fourth- and fifth-graders. All our athletic teams are the Panthers, and we all wear purple and gold. We know that in the greater Toledo-area community, the names “Gateway” and “Wayne Trail” were not readily associated with the Maumee school district.
We gathered input from community members via emails, public comments at board of education meetings and social media posts for close to two months before the board approved the name changes at its June 12, 2023 meeting. New signage has been ordered for both schools and will be installed as soon as it is delivered.
District Set To Kick Off Strategic Planning Process
A team of approximately 30 community members, parents, students, alumni and school district staff has been assembled and will be working with the Ohio School Boards Association to review data, demographics, community and education trends and, as a team, chart the school district’s strategic direction for the future. We are just concluding our current strategic plan that was in place for the past four years, and I am happy to report that we made significant advancements in the four target areas established in 2019. I am looking forward to the work of this team over the next five months as we set our course for the future.

Looking Both Backward & Forward As The School Year Ends
As we approach the end of May, it is the ideal time to look back and celebrate our 2022-23 school year successes, update you about summer happenings and preview some of what we have planned for the new school year that begins the week of August 14.
If you are a parent, grandparent or family member of a current Maumee City Schools student, you undoubtedly attended a concert, award program, our Art & STEAM Festival, an athletic event or a similar student/family activity in the last month or two. There were far too many end-of-year events to list here, but I hope you enjoyed yourself. Thank you to every adult who supports and lifts up the students of our school district. It takes an entire community to work together to educate generations of young people.
Class Of 2023 Graduation Ceremony Held May 21
Please join me in congratulating the 189 members of the Maumee High School Class of 2023. They graduated on May 21 at the Stranahan Theater in what was the 137th commencement ceremony of Maumee High School. While we say goodbye and best wishes to these graduates, we also get ready to welcome the MHS Class of 2036, who will start kindergarten in August at Fairfield and Fort Miami.
Milestone years are extremely important to school district staff. We have activities and supports in place for students, not only in kindergarten and senior year, but as they matriculate from elementary to intermediate school, intermediate to middle school, and middle to high school. These activities include preview nights, visits to the new school building, onboarding/orientation teams of upperclassmen and staff who work with students in small groups, and school counselors who walk alongside transitioning students. Did you know that for the last few years, we have taken a Maumee City Schools bus to local preschools in Maumee so that children have the experience of boarding and sitting on a school bus before their first day of kindergarten?
Lots Of Activities In Our Schools Over Summer Break
You will see our buses rolling throughout the summer for six weeks of summer academic camp that 270 students have registered to attend. Summer Camp this year will be at Fort Miami Elementary School. Our athletic department and varsity coaches are hosting youth sports camps throughout the summer months, and the Maumee Police Division again hosts Safety City at Wayne Trail from Monday, June 5 through Friday, June 16.
Our amazing custodians and grounds crew will undertake deep-cleaning projects, painting, and interior and exterior repairs, and our technology department will be upgrading safety and security systems districtwide. We have several large-scale improvement projects underway on the front and back playgrounds at Union School and in the Family and Consumer Science classrooms at Maumee High School. Follow us on social media (www.facebook.com/maumeecityschools, twitter.com/Maumee_schools) to see photographs of these projects as they progress between now and the start of next school year.
Maumee City Schools Staff Retirements
Retirements occur at the end of school years, and we are saying “Happy retirement” to seven teachers, three operational staff members and our district nurse. Our best wishes to Karen Brebberman, Theresa Loeffler, Jeff McIntire, Sandy Poto, Jan Schell, Julia Stratton, Ken Walczak, Toni Kern, Rick Smith, Julia Stokes and nurse Jane Fender.
New Athletic Conference Games Begin This Fall
Maumee City Schools will officially join the Northern Buckeye Athletic Conference (NBC) beginning this fall. While we will continue to play many of the NLL schools, our students will be in league play and tournaments with other NBC schools – Rossford, Eastwood, Oak Harbor, Fostoria, Woodmore, Lake and Genoa. We are looking forward to welcoming these teams and their athletes to our high school and middle school.
Please feel free to contact me anytime by calling (419) 893-3200 or emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Maumee City Schools Look Forward To A Busy Spring
Spring is always a busy time in the school district. We are getting ready to start our fourth quarter, which means we have about 45 days left in the school year. Maumee’s Spring Break is April 7-14 and after that, we are looking forward to numerous spring sports athletic contests and family/community activities such as STEAM and Arts Fest, concerts and academic award nights most evenings until graduation on Saturday, May 27.
You may not know that each spring, we schedule time for students who will be transitioning to a new school because of their grade level to visit their new school as a first step in getting oriented. This allows them to meet staff members, tour the school and ask questions that may be on their minds. Our third-graders from Fort Miami and Fairfield spend time at Wayne Trail (our intermediate school for fourth- and fifth-graders), and our fifth-graders spend a few hours at the middle school as well as have classroom presentations from our middle school counselors. Maumee eighth-graders have several opportunities to get acquainted with Maumee High School with counselor visits, high school student visits and a tour of Maumee High School. And, eighth-grade student-athletes are invited to start attending open gyms to work out with their future teammates. Last year, we started the practice of taking a Maumee school bus to Maumee preschools so that children who will start kindergarten with us this August get to sit on the bus and meet a driver and a kindergarten teacher who both go along for the visit.
I want to personally invite the community to come out and watch our middle and high school students compete in athletic competitions and to attend concerts and our spring musical, The Little Mermaid, which features not only high school students but also elementary students. Performances are Friday, Saturday and Sunday, March 24, 25 and 26, and you can find details about times and how to purchase tickets on the school district website at www.maumee.k12.oh.us. Locate the ticket box office link at the top of the home page. This is also the link to buy athletic event tickets.
Maumee City School Staff Members Honored By Community
Congratulations to the community members and volunteers who were recognized at this year’s Hometown Heroes banquet hosted by the Maumee Chamber of Commerce on March 2. I had my first opportunity to take part in the program and had the honor of introducing the three Maumee City Schools staff members selected to receive a Golden Apple Award. Congratulations to Fairfield Elementary School principal Michele Loboschefski, Fairfield Elementary School counselor Amy Johnson (MHS graduate) and Maumee High School social studies teacher Jamie Naragon (MHS graduate) for earning this honor. Congratulations to Maumee High School junior varsity basketball coach Jim Richardson (MHS grad) for receiving the Bridge Award. Maumee City Schools is grateful that the chamber of commerce allows us to be part of the wonderful event.
Congratulations To All The MHS Students Who Competed In State Competition
Maumee had teams excel at sectional and district-level competition and a number advanced to states. These include gymnasts Courtney Crawford (balance beam) and Elisa Borello (vault); wrestler Tommy Gast (126 pounds); speech and debate team members Sophia Bula, Zab Kessinger, Phoenix Smith, Michael Varwig and Caris Wedge; indoor track and field team member Lucas Polkinghorn; and the MHS cheerleading team. Our DECA students were at the state competition this past weekend and 22 of them placed high enough to advance to the national DECA competition in Orlando in late April.
We Appreciate The Support Of Parents & Community
It would fill an entire page of the newspaper if I attempted to list all of the parents, community members, local businesses and Maumee nonprofit organizations that support Maumee City Schools students, staff and our initiatives. Each year, our PTOs and athletic and music parent booster clubs work tirelessly to raise money and organize family/community events that foster camaraderie and a sense of community. The generosity of businesses and organizations is greatly appreciated, as we know that some of you are contacted several times each year and asked to donate, put your logo on an event T-shirt, provide a meal or coupons or contribute to a new initiative. We thank you and appreciate the countless opportunities that your support provides for our students.
Maumee City Schools To Receive Additional $200,000 In Safety Grant Funding
I reported in my last Superintendent’s Message that the school district had received $300,000 in state safety grant funds to be used in our elementary schools. We were able to apply for our middle and high school buildings as well and now an additional $200,000 has been received, meaning each school will receive $100,000 in safety enhancements in the coming months. Work is already underway on a number of projects and will continue through the spring and summer. As a result of securing these grant funds, all of our schools will have safety enhancements in place ranging from more secure entrances, enhanced surveillance, additional and upgraded technology for radio communication to security system upgrades and more by the start of the new school year.
Superintendent Welcomes New Year With State Of The District Report
Happy New Year from Maumee City Schools. As we begin a new calendar year, I want to take this opportunity to update the community on several key areas that we are very excited about: new financial resources, improving academics, facility enhancements, new staff supporting our students and the fall 2023 move to a new athletic league.
We have worked hard over the past few years to carefully manage the district’s financial resources and allocate funds to maximize the positive impact on student learning and achievement. We have maintained a strong financial position despite the challenges and uncertainties of the past two-plus school years. We were fortunate to receive pandemic relief funding that we will continue to spend down during this school year and next to remediate learning loss and help offset additional costs of providing educational services during the pandemic.
In addition to good financial stability, we have also made significant progress in meeting our academic strategic goals and initiatives. This work has led to measurable improvements in academic outcomes and created a more positive and inclusive school culture as reflected on our last school report card from the state of Ohio.
Maumee City Schools To Receive $300,000 In Safety Grant Funding
The school district applied for safety funding made available by the state of Ohio and we will receive $300,000 this school year to be spent at our three elementary schools for projects outlined in the grant application. These will include many safety enhancements within the schools as well as building access improvements. In addition to these grant-funded enhancements, we will continue to convene our monthly safety committee (which includes Maumee first responders and staff from across the district) to continually review and discuss ways to make our schools safer for students and staff.
Facility Improvements Are Coming This Spring & Summer
We have painting, tiling and small building repair projects underway inside our schools, and a large fencing installation on Fairfield Elementary School’s back playground area. When the weather warms, other improvement projects will be started, including paving at the back of Wayne Trail Elementary School and improvements on the front playground at Union School. Facility improvements such as these are possible thanks to Maumee taxpayers approving a permanent-improvement levy in November 2014. This levy generates approximately $900,000 annually for improvements that have a very long life.
Professional Development Opportunities Available For Faculty And Staff
In addition to six full days of professional development throughout the school year that covers a wide range of topics, staff receives training at their individual school staff meetings, after school and in the summer.
A major focus for Maumee K-3 elementary teachers continues to be LETRS training. LETRS (Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling) is evidence-based professional learning that is showing a dramatic impact on literacy success for students. LETRS teaches the skills needed to master the fundamentals of reading instruction – phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, writing and language. It strengthens knowledge of the science of reading and the development of the reading brain and trains teachers to help students improve foundational literacy skills such as decoding and language comprehension. LETRS is a two-year intensive professional learning experience.
Our teachers in grades 4-12 are working together to vertically strengthen and align curriculum and instruction in the subjects of math, science, social studies, English language arts, art, music and physical education. In addition, staff who work with students identified as gifted, as well as students with special learning and behavioral needs, take part in specialized training. And, we are all gearing up for required training in suicide awareness and prevention, violence prevention and social inclusion; all of which are required following new state and federal mandates.
District Adds New Staff Positions To Meet Student Needs
At the start of last school year, behavioral specialist Nate Bishop joined the Maumee City Schools staff. He assesses students’ unique behavioral needs and creates an individualized behavior intervention plan when necessary. This school year, we added four behavior technicians to the team, and they work with students in grades K-8, under the supervision of Mr. Bishop and school principals.
Why these new positions, you may ask? When a student is struggling in math or reading, there are many traditional interventions to employ. But helping students overcome behavior issues that impact their academic success is not as clear-cut. These specially trained staff members are making remarkable progress with our students.
We are in the process of employing a social worker who will work exclusively with Maumee families with children from preschool through third grade to reduce barriers to school success during these early years. This staff member will be very involved in family engagement activities and will assist parents in finding community-based pre-kindergarten educational programs for their children.
Northern Buckeye Conference Begins With Fall Sports Season
Beginning in the fall 2023 sports season, Maumee City Schools will officially be a member of the NBC and not the NLL. While we will continue to be in athletic competition with many NLL schools, our students will be in league play and tournaments with the other NBC schools – Rossford, Eastwood, Oak Harbor, Fostoria, Woodmore, Lake and Genoa.
January puts us about half of the way through the 2022-23 school year, and we are excited to continue building on the momentum of the first half of the year. We look forward to the continued support of our families, students, staff and the entire Maumee City Schools community, so that we can live out our mission to be a community that invests in every child, every day, to ensure all students find their success.
Please feel free to contact me any time by calling (419) 893-3200 or emailing me at email@example.com.
