Banks provide masks for Students at scems

The banks of Coldwater and Protection have always been great partners with South Central Schools, and once again they have stepped up to supply a need. Representatives from the Bank of Protection, Bank of Coldwater, and People's Bank were discussing how the banks could help meet the need if masks were required for school kids this year, according to Donna Brosius, bank teller and secretary at the Bank of Protection.

Donna said they worked with Danny Bruckner of StickIt Signs to order 4 masks for every school child Pre-School to Grade 8. The banks have provided enough masks to have extra for those students who may move in during the school year. There were even masks to spare for students in preschool in Ashland. 

Please be sure to thank the banks involved in the mask project. This means one less thing for parents and students to worry about in this crazy COVID year!


We Are Ready for a Great Year!


The staff at South Central Elementary and Middle School have worked hard to prepare for the new year.  Each year I choose a theme for the year.  As we were working to get the year rolling a recurring thought was that we need to be ready.  So I choose the theme “We Are Ready,” because I know I am ready!!!


“We Are Ready” to hear laughter in the building!

“We Are Ready” to see bright faces!

“We Are Ready” to have fun with our friends!

“We Are Ready” to share dynamic classroom lessons!



See you soon - Mr. Jellison
