Buckeye High School Food Pantry

Dear Buckeye High School Families & Staff,


This year, the High School Administration, National Honor Society, and Key Club have begun to work with Feeding Medina County in hope of establishing a Food Pantry within the High School. The goal of the food pantry is to provide students with an opportunity to have healthy snacks during the school day and to provide weekend bags to those students who may be in financial distress and have limited access to healthy and filling meals.


Feeding Medina County’s mission is to educate, engage and lead our community in creating an environment where no one goes hungry. This is a concept that we in the High School have embraced and hope to fulfill as we support students within our own community.


This Holiday Season, we are asking for donations of non-perishable food and toiletry items to help get our pantry up and running. Donated food items such as protein/granola bars, boxes of cereal, cans of soup and tuna, as well as basic hygiene products will be put to great use. To help encourage all in our school community to fight childhood hunger in Medina County, Buckeye High School has created a “Giving Tree” located in the Main Office. If you are interested in helping to support this very worthwhile program, please have items brought in to the Main Office by December 20, 2018. If you have any questions about the program or how to best donate items, please contact Mrs. Maxwell in the office.


Merry Christmas & Go Bucks!

Kevin Jakub

Freshmen Mentor: Midterm and Final Study Session

The week before finals has been a busy week of studying and preparation for our Buckeye High School students. For our Freshmen class, this is the first time many of them have been exposed to a midterm exam. Knowing this, our Freshmen Mentors took on the challenge of helping prepare our newest Bucks for their first midterm experience. Each day during Buckeye period peer tutors and teachers from each of our departments spent time in Buckeye Period helping prepare our freshmen for their first exams. Peer tutors and Buckeye staff led review sessions, provided study tips, and did some re-teaching in order to help make the testing experience a little bit less stressful and providing some great structure for future preparation. Thank you to Mr. Snook for organizing and leading this great program!

BuckTV: Spotlight on Buckeye High School Students

The crew at BuckTV has continued their great work this semester as they work to share not only about the events that take place at Buckeye High School but most importantly the people who make up the fabric of our school. After putting the focus on some of our staff members in the last edition of The Buckeye Blast they decided to put their focus back on some of our winter sports athletes.
