Tune in every Monday for #MakeADifferenceMonday where we will feature a stakeholder, student, or fellow alumni answering "Five questions for B-C-S"

This week B-C-S is featuring, Building Secretary at RC Waters, Angie Rahm

1. What is your name? What is your current title with B-C-S Local School District and how long have you been employed?

  • My name is Angie Rahm and I am the Building Secretary at R.C. Waters. I have been with BCS since 2009 when I was hired as the Student Services Secretary.

2. Describe what a typical school day is like for you?

  • A typical school day is non-stop! Each morning I greet students at the front door which is a wonderful way to start a day! After the bell rings I share the morning announcements and am joined by a student who will help lead the Pledge of Allegiance, share the “Joke of the Day” or cheer us into the weekend with the Fight Song. Then the day starts rolling with phone calls, classroom envelopes full of goodies and visitors to our building. There are always projects to be done and data entry to completed along with working in our new dismissal system Pikmykid. Throughout the day I enjoy visits from students and staff members and am fortunate to have a fantastic office team that makes the hours fly by.

3. What do you enjoy most about your job?

  • I would say that what I enjoy most about my job is creating connections. It may be to find a way to make a shy first grader smile or perhaps help a family find the right resources in a time of need. It is that moment that gives me joy. These connections are what bring us together and know that there are others who understand and appreciate the network that our community has for helping each other. I am excited to start a new adventure as a TNT mentor with an OHMS student. The connections continue long after their R.C. Waters days are done!

4. Please share how RC Waters creates Rocket Pride?

  • R.C. Waters creates Rocket Pride through the encouragement that staff and students give each other and is really captured through our PBIS expectations: to be “Respectful, Responsible and Ready.” We encourage our students and staff to remember these three ideals not only throughout their school days but also at sporting events, community activities and in their own homes. The best way to show your Rocket Pride is to be the best version of yourself. I am very proud to have attended at R.C. Waters and am an OHHS Class of 1993 graduate. I carry that pride into school as I walk through the doors each morning and as I leave each afternoon. GO ROCKETS!

5. Please share what you enjoy doing outside of school?

  • Outside of the school day and my R.C. Waters family, I am blessed to have in my life a wonderful family and great friends. My husband Tim (OHHS Class of ‘93) and I have been married for 17 years this fall. We are kept busy with our children’s activities including our daughter Olivia, a Junior at OHHS, who plays volleyball and softball and is active in FFA and our son Will, an 8th grader, who enjoys the band, football, baseball, wrestling, and pole vaulting. 4H is truly a family project and we are all very involved in raising a variety of animals. I am involved with the 4H Advisory Committee and Cultivate the Clover. We are members of St. John’s Lutheran Church where many of our family attend which makes it even more special. I enjoy anything with pictures - scrapbooking, photography and creating photo slideshows as well as camping and learning how to remodel our home. Life is busy but it is good - very good!

Ottawa County Safety Council Visits OHHS!

Dr. Guy Parmigian, Superintendent of Benton-Carroll-Salem Local School District, presented "Safety Regulations & Inspections" during the September 19th safety council meeting.

The topic covered the emergency operation plan for the school district, the ALICE program, how communications are handled in the event of an emergency, and evacuation sites that are in place to ensure that students know where to go. Cheryl Jefferson, the School Social Worker, talked about the mental and emotional support she provides to students after an unfortunate event has happened. Recently, vestibules were added on to several of the school buildings to limit the access to the students and a new School Resource Officer was brought on last month, in partnership with the Oak Harbor, Ohio Police Department.
