Good morning R.C. Waters!

Today is Friday, February 27, 2015





Today is Rocket Pride Friday…This is the last installment in my history of Oak Harbor series.  We are now up to the year 2,000’s. There are very few farm related businesses in town, unlike the early 1900's. Gone are the blacksmith shops, the machine shops, and the many stores that served the farmer. In their place are small specialty shops, convenience stores, and service businesses that compete for the more mobile population. But the dreams of the original citizens of Hartford are still alive today. They are visible in the churches, schools, the Apple Festival, and in the daily lives of the people. Much is being done to improve upon those dreams and yet to retain the spirit of the village that has grown from the swamp and the forest on the bank of the Portage River. If Adolphus Kraemer were alive today, he would be proud of the village he helped to create - Oak Harbor, "the biggest little town in Ohio".  I am glad I could share the history of Oak Harbor with all of you over the past few months.  Our history is truly part of our Rocket Pride!

Tonight is Movie Night!  The doors open at 5:45 and the feature presentation, Big Hero 6, will begin at 6:00!  The first 130 R.C. Waters students through the door will be presented with a special movie night spirit stick.  Bring something comfy to sit on and enjoy the show!  

Coming up on Sunday is another Sunday Fun Swim at the High School from 2:00-4:00 pm.  Grab your suit and towel and head on over!  


We still have rocket baseball little league forms available in the lobby. Registrations are due by this Sunday, March 1st to the



address listed on the form.  


Looking forward to next week...it’s Ohio 4H week and I am excited!  Listen to the morning announcements for some fun 4H facts!  3rd graders will have their PARCC testing on Tuesday, Thursday will be our spring pictures and Dr. Seuss Night!  Friday is spirit day - GO ROCKETS!  Saturday is “swim day with peer pals” for 1st and 3rd graders.  


Make the day & your weekend great R.C. Waters!!
