King’s legacy lives on through area students
Essay contest asked students to reflect on their visions for justice
Five decades after Martin Luther King Jr.’s work toward greater civil rights and racial equality was cut short in 1968, Fostoria students gathered in council city chambers to reflect on his legacy.
The city of Fostoria partnered with the Fostoria Chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People to host the Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration Monday afternoon. The annual event recognized students from Fostoria City schools and St. Wendelin Catholic schools for their own visions and plans to continue King’s pursuit of justice.
Students in grades 1-6 were asked to write an essay on how they can promote justice in their community and beyond to be considered in the Tiffin-Seneca Martin Luther King Jr. Day Committee’s 30th annual essay contest.
This year’s winners included Maciel Salcido, a second-grader, and Josh Dibble, a fourth grader, both at St. Wendelin; Emily Catherine Sidney and Brooklyn Holman, both fifth-graders, and Makalynn McCumber, a sixth-grader, all of Fostoria Intermediate Elementary.Each student was presented a certificate and gift bag as a prize after they practiced reading their essay in front of friends and family.

JSHS Status Update
Friday, January 12, 2018
Today was another day of progress with our cleanup and relocation efforts. The cleaning company has come in and will begin working around the clock tomorrow. Today we were also able to learn the steps that need to be taken to get the 9-12 students placed. These students will be moving to Fostoria Learning Center (FLC). The final inspection of the FLC will take place on Tuesday with the hope of starting students in grades 7-12 back to school on Wednesday of next week. With that said, the JSHS will be closed on Tuesday, January 16th. On Monday night, January 15th, at Fostoria Intermediate School, we will have two informational meetings to outline final logistics for families explaining the transition to the new locations. The meeting for grades 7-8 will be at 6:00 pm, and then grades 9-12 will follow immediately after at 7:00 pm. At this point in time we hope to be able to outline all final details for how the next several weeks will work.
