  • Hello Cardinals! Well … we are rounding third and headed home! It is hard to believe that we are headed to Spring Break and then into the final quarter of the school year. And, the busiest time of the school year too! In between all of the end of the year concerts, banquets and celebrations, students and teachers must also remain focused on high standards for teaching and learning. Beginning April 18th, state testing will resume with our End of Course exams for students enrolled in English 1, English 2, Math 1, Math 2, United States History, American Government or Biology (you can read more by clicking here). Our testing schedule is being finalized and will be released after spring break. Parents and students are encouraged to ask questions about the tests and the testing process. It is also important to practice and prepare for each test. Click here to find sample test items and practice tests on the Ohio Department of Education website. With all that will be going on at our school over the next few months, it is important for students, parents and teachers to maintain open lines of communication regarding academic performance. Parents should not hesitate to contact a teacher or administrator when there is a question, concern, or celebration to share. We are all in the together – and together we’ll grow! Have a great Spring Break – please take the time to rest, relax, and reconnect with family and friends. See you on March 28th! The next TWHS Weekly News and Updates will be sent on April 1, 2016.

    Have a safe and enjoyable Spring Break!

    Ohio Math League #6 Top 15 Scores for March 15, 2016 Click here for the list of the top 15 scores of TWHS students who participated in the Ohio Math League #6 math competition on March 15. This is a state wide event and there are a total of 6

    competitions. Each high school competes and we take the top 5 scores to represent our team score. A perfect team score would be a 30 and a perfect individual score would be a 6. Click here for the names and scores of the top 5 TWHS finishers for the 6 OML competitions. We are presently tied for 6th in the state and 3rd in our district. Last year, we finished tied for 8th in the state and 3rd in our district. Dublin Jerome finished first in our district and Sycamore finished first in the state.

    Senior Annie Zou scored a perfect 6 out of 6 resulting in a perfect 36 out of 36 for the entire contest. Annie is the only TWHS student over the past 10 years to earn this great accomplishment. There are presently only 2 other students in the state of Ohio as of the 5th contest to have a perfect cumulative score so Annie will at least finish in the top 3 in the state. She has been our top finisher for the past 3 years. Annie is TWHS’s only 3 time AIME qualifier as well. Congratulations to Annie!

    Materials science students have been creating Raku pottery, using an ancient Japanese method that takes advantage of redox reactions to get a metallic glaze finish. The finished products looked great!

    Students enjoy a nice day outside in strength training.
