CR Third Grade Student Meets Miss Ohio
Pictured with Miss Ohio is Brynn Reese, whose winning entry at the Hancock County coloring contest, earned her a chance to attend a luncheon with Miss Ohio last Friday 3.14.14. Each school in Hancock County had a winning entry from their 3rd grade class. Brynn had a lot of fun not only with Miss Ohio but also interacting with the disabled kids at Blanchard Valley Center. Thanks Mrs. Quinlan for sending in her entry!
Congratulations Concert Band and Chorale!!
The Cory-Rawson Chorale, under the direction of Matt Taylor and the Cory-Rawson Concert Band, under the direction of Wendi Davis, both qualified for State Band and Choir Contest this weekend by earning Superior Ratings for their performances at the District Contest at Shawnee High School. Both groups had outstanding performances. Students in both groups have been working hard to prepare for the event, and with all the school we have missed because of the weather, they have had much less time to prepare. Both groups performed 3 prepared numbers before a panel of 3 judges and then also performed a sight reading number in front of a fourth judge. Both groups will soon be leaving for a performance at Disney World, returning in time to compete at the State Contest the weekend of May 2-3. Again, congratulations and best wishes as these students and their directors prepare for the exciting and challenging opportunities ahead.

County Health Department Reminds Parents About Vaccinations!
It is once again time to start thinking about vaccinating your children for the upcoming school year. Any child entering kindergarten or 7th grade will need vaccine updates before the start of the 2013-2014 school year to be in compliance with the Ohio Revised Code guidelines. Tdap is required for the students entering the 7th. We continue to be concerned about the resurgence of pertussis (whooping cough) which is the reason for the Tdap requirement. We have had 6 cases of whooping cough diagnosed in rural Hancock County in the past six months. Along with the Tdap vaccine, we would encourage you to consider the meningitis and chickenpox vaccines for any child age 11 through 18. These vaccines are available at most physician’s offices or here at the Hancock County Health Department. The Hancock County Health Department is now a vaccine provider from most local insurance companies and bill insurance for services provided. If you are interested in scheduling for vaccinations at our office please call 419-424-7869. The Health Department encourages you to call and get these scheduled now. Please don’t wait until August as our clinics are usually filled to capacity.
