Dear Community Members:


The 2016-17 school-year has wrapped up, and we now get ready for the big move. I have a number of things for you this week including the May Financial Report.




I would like to extend well wishes to the graduates of the Class of 2017. While they were the smallest class to graduate from Eastwood in a 20+ years, they made up for it with quality kids and a lasting legacy of leadership. They were a classy group of adults, and they made all of us proud!




On behalf of the Board of Education we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the Burkin and Hamen families. On Wednesday June 7th Hope Burkin, daughter of 6th grade teacher Donny Burkin, passed away after battling Fanconi Anemia. Hope was an amazing young lady who left her mark not only at Perrysburg Schools, but at St. John XXIII her church. There will be a visitation at Witzler-Shank funeral Home (Perrysburg) on Tuesday, June 13th from 2 – 8, and the funeral will be Wednesday, June 14th at St. John the XXlll Catholic Church at 10:30. Sue Hamen lost her mother Doris last week as well. The obituary for Sue’s mom can be found at the following link Her visitation and funeral will all be on June 22nd.


Please keep these families in your thoughts and prayers.




The girl’s basketball program is once again conducting their laundry detergent and fabric softener sale. The detergent and softener arrives in a 5 gallon pump bucket and provides you with 320 loads of laundry! The detergents and softeners have the same ingredients that Tide, Gain, and Downey use in their products. There is a 100% money back guarantee on the product.


The cost for a 5 gallon bucket of detergent/softener is $45. Orders, payments, and additional product information can be found at the following: 

or through an Eastwood girls basketball player and also by contacting coach Nick Schmeltz at 419-508-7819 or


The order deadline date is June 16th and the delivery will be on June 29th at Eastwood High School. 




Information for this summer’s boy’s basketball camp is attached. The dates this year will be July 24-27. The camp is for students heading into grades 1-8 next year. Please check it out!



With one month remaining in the fiscal year, we still remain in good shape as compared to our annual plan.

Our revenues for the year are close to being fully collected except for some additional state funding payments. As we have discussed before, the higher than expected property taxes came from a combination of one-time additional money from the Troy Energy valuation appeal as well as some better than expected taxes from the additional power lines hung last year on the towers south of Dowling Road. In addition, we did see improvements in our income tax collections through the first three quarters of the year, but that narrowed. In February, we were showing a positive of over $36,000 in our income taxes for the year to date, and that fell after the April payment to $30,000. While ahead of projections it still is a lower number than what we would have expected and will be something we need to watch.




On the expense side there is really nothing new to report. Our actual expenses remain well below our plan for the year and we see that continuing through the end of June and the current fiscal year.





At the end of the month we will have a final budget bill for the next two fiscal years. Final legislation will have an enormous impact on where we go as a district.




This will no doubt be the busiest summer during my time here. We are already moving materials and contents in preparation for the big move at the beginning of August.

Best wishes to all!
