The organization also provides partnerships with schools and training for school professionals across the state.

This is the second year in a row that a student from State Street has won the contest.

Martin Luther King Jr. Oratorical contest this year. It is sponsored by the Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Committee in Rochester. If students submit essays, they would have to be available on Saturday, November 18th at 3:30 p.m. to read them at the semi-finals if they are chosen. Our students from elementary to high school have been very successful in this competition in the past and have represented the district well.
State Street was an exciting place to be on Monday, August 21st as the kids headed into school for the 2017-2018 school year! Students attended an assembly on the STAR behavior reward program and had the opportunity to view the solar eclipse.
Andrew Crofoot and Madison Holcomb were awarded prizes for completing the summer activity packet and returning it to Mr. McKelvey (photo below).

These AASD students brought immense pride to our district in Oglebay, West Virginia!
They qualified at the county level to attend the NATIONAL ACADEMIC GAMES!
Joshua Guenther 5th grade
Naomi Husted 6th grade
Micah Kwolek 6th grade
They are all State Street students who know how to 'think' and play these higher-level games of intense strategy.
Naomi competed in Linquishtik, Equations, and Current Events. She had to have her game face on to do her best in grammar, math problems, and the latest news from 2016!
Micah and Josh competed in Current Events and Presidents. They could probably tell you what color dresses the First Ladies wore at the Innaugaration!
These students are to be commended for making it this far and competing with 1,000 players from across the nation!
Only the top 15% qualify from the county to play at the national level!
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF THESE STUDENTS WHO KNOW HOW TO 'PLAY' TO WIN!!!!!!
We are truly proud of your accomplishments!
