Laurelville Elementary and Pickaway-Ross Career & Technical Center Students Join Forces to Benefit the Village of Laurelville 
The Village of Laurelville recently improved the flag pole at the center of the village, thanks to the efforts of two groups of local students. Students from Mr. Brent Ebert’s Machining and Manufacturing class at Pickaway-Ross CTC designed a new crack and shield for the pulley system, allowing flags to be raised and lowered with ease, without the use of a ladder. Laurelville Elementary School’s Student Council used funds they raised to purchase a new United States of America flag as well as an Ohio flag to be displayed on the newly improved pole.
 Don Kempton, Jr and Sue Ann Hinton, members of the Laurelville Village Council, met with fourth grade students and their teachers, Heidi Woods and Belinda Wolfe, to accept the new flags.

At Logan Elm Schools, Problem Based Learning Connects Students and the Community 
For the current school year, Logan Elm Locals Schools have embraced Problem Based Learning (PBL) with much enthusiasm and energy as part of a county-wide initiative in conjunction with Pickaway WORKS. Problem Based Learning, sometimes referred to as Project Based Learning, gives students the opportunity to work on a project over an extended period of time and involves solving a real-world problem or answering a complex question. At the conclusion of the project, students demonstrate their knowledge and skills by developing a public product or presentation for a real audience. 
Logan Elm chose to take unique approach to PBL this fall, by partnering with local businesses and organizations, allowing students to research a real-world problem with a local connection. Amy Colburn, Logan Elm’s Curriculum Director, arranged for teachers of all grade levels to meet with representatives from local businesses and org…
