Dear Principal Friess,
Congratulations! It’s my honor to inform you that Ohio’s State Board of Education has granted Wauseon Middle School the 2016 Momentum Award. The Momentum Award recognizes schools that have received A’s on every value-added measure included on the 2016 Ohio School Report Card. For your students, you are keeping the learning momentum high!
Your report card for the 2015-2016 school year indicates that your pupils made greater than expected progress in reading and mathematics. This is especially commendable because you no doubt have a diverse array of students whose educational backgrounds and learning needs vary. As a winner of a Momentum Award, you are part of a group of schools that is showing that children of every background and ability level can achieve.

Yours is a great example for all Ohio schools.
