Cumulative GPA for Stow High School lady Bulldogs tops in state
The 12 girls on the Stow-Munroe Falls High School basketball team aren't just skilled on the court. They're tough to beat in the classroom too. The varsity team is being recognized by the Ohio High School Basketball Coaches Association for having the best cumulative grade point average across the state of Ohio for the 2012-2013 school year. The team's cumulative GPA of 3.957 has earned them a pizza party courtesy of the Ohio National Guard and likely some recognition at an upcoming school board meeting. Coach Bob Podges said he wasn't too surprised by the No. 1 academic ranking given that the team placed in the top five statewide last year. Podges said one of his players is already taking college curriculum courses at Kent State University…

High school sports reporting efforts earn student national ranking
Tommy Bean just might be behind the anchor desk at ESPN some day. The Stow-Munroe Falls High School teen has earned national recognition for his sports-reporting accomplishments here in Stow. Bean recently was awarded a $2,000 scholarship for his work covering the Bulldogs athletics. Bean transferred to Stow this year and introduced live coverage of sports to the school district's website. Bean broadcast live coverage of high school basketball games online and used the website to give sports updates, post videos and offer a tip of the week to the local sports audience. The coverage culminated with a submission to a national contest run by Digital Sports, a website that shares local sports coverage from around the country. For his efforts…

ETC School of Musical Arts nabs 3 grand championships in 2013
Nick Campagna has good reason to boast. The choir director for Stow-Munroe Falls High School also leads the ETC School Musical Arts Show Choir, a 50-plus student performance group comprised mostly of Stow students and based out of the Akron school. This year, the group managed to do something it's never done before in its 35-year history: win three grand championship awards. "Which is a record for ETC in one season," Campagna said. The group is comprised of about 44 singer/dancers, close to a dozen instrumental musicians and about half a dozen crew members. About 21 students, nearly half the group, attend Stow High School. The ETC show group took first place, or won grand champion, at three competitions this year that included: "Reach for …

High school student charged with telecommunications harassment
A Stow-Munroe Falls High School student is in trouble with the law thanks in part to his Twitter account. School administrators called Stow Police after discovering a student had tweeted "threatening and berating comments" about a high school teacher, according to a police report. The student, who is an adult but whose identity is not being published at this time by Stow Patch, was charged with one count of telecommunications harassment, a first-degree misdemeanor. The severity of the threats, and whether disciplinary action has been taken, is unclear, as Stow-Munroe Falls Schools Superintendent Russell Jones did not respond to a request for comment. The threatening tweets were apparently sent on Valentine's Day, Feb. 14, last month, …

Thursday, March 7
Rep. Dave Joyce (R-OH) is inviting high school students in Ohio’s 14th district to submit their art work for this year’s Congressional Art Competition. The Congressional Art Competition was first started in 1982 as a way for students in each congressional district to showcase their artistic abilities. The winning art piece will hang in the U.S. Capitol for one year and the student with the winning entry will be invited to a ribbon cutting ceremony and reception in Washington, D.C. “The Congressional Art Competition is a great way for Northeast Ohio students to show the rest of the country just how talented they are," Joyce said.

Reports that a Stow High School student would return to class after drafting a "hit list" are false, according to school officials.
Updated 1:29 a.m. A Stow-Munroe Falls High School student was charged with disorderly conduct and menacing after making a statement about having a hit list. Supertendent Dr. Russ Jones "emphasized the student never actually created a tangible hit list,” reports the Stow Sentry. According to a Fox 8 interview, Stow Police Chief Louis Dirker was quoted as saying, “One boy made an off-the-wall comment and this boy started writing some things down and one of the school officials did actually retrieve this list, and couple names on it, and this boy had no real problems with these people.” Dirker indicated the threat was not serious. The student was suspended for his actions. Speculation abounded after the incident was made public with Patch…
