The end of the school year is a period marked by a flurry of activities and testing, bringing a mix of anticipation and anxiety for students and educators alike. As State Testing and the end of the school year loom, both teachers and students ramp up their efforts, making the most of the remaining time to ensure the year ends on a high note.

Testing, in particular, becomes a focal point. Standardized tests, classroom assessments, and project deadlines create a challenging environment where time management, study skills, and stress management become crucial. Educators play a significant role in preparing their students, offering review sessions and moral support.

District Staff Rising Star Laurie Davis

Laurie has been a wonderful addition to The Norwood Montessori School. She continues to provide her kindergarten students with authentic learning opportunities through literature, writing, practical life, sensorial, and cultural lessons along with lab work using hands-on materials such as a moveable alphabet, and bead counting for place value extensions.

Athletic Rising Star Wyatt Hinton

Hinton's triumph goes beyond individual glory, marking a historic moment for Norwood High School as he becomes the first boys' state champion in its history. Finishing his senior year with an outstanding 49-1 record, Hinton's legacy as a wrestling prodigy is firmly cemented.

State Champion Wyatt Hinton


In a workman-like display of skill, determination, and perseverance, Wyatt Hinton etched his name into the annals of Norwood High School's history by clinching the Division 3 OHSAA state championship at 138 pounds. Hinton's journey to the top was nothing short of remarkable, punctuated by monumental victories and a stellar senior year performance.

The quarterfinal match set the stage for Hinton's quest for gold as he faced off against Ashton Homan, the defending 2022 state champion from Monroeville. In a technical display of control, Hinton emerged victorious with a 3-0 decision.

Undeterred by the challenge, Hinton continued his relentless pursuit of the championship, meeting Dakota King of Barnesville in the semifinals. Despite facing off against the predicted state champion and a four-time state placer, Hinton remained composed and focused, clinching a hard-fought 2-1 decision to advance to the finals.p
