Announcements

Miami East plans to open on August 26th. We know our community values our schools and desires for all students to safely return to classrooms on a daily basis. We share that same goal.  We will have schedules, class lists, and bus routes “ready to go” for the first day.

We are currently working with the Miami County Health Department reviewing their recommendations and ensuring we follow the state’s recommendations to ensure our students return to school safely.

We are still working out the specific details of what the back to school plan will look like. In doing so, the District will be sending out a survey to our parents soliciting their input.


FFA Sponsors Coloring Contest

CASSTOWN, OH - The Agricultural Literacy Committee of the Miami East-MVCTC FFA Chapter recently sponsored a coloring contest at Miami East Elementary. The event was held to celebrate National Agriculture Week.

Ms. Katie Mason – Ava McGaharan

Ms. Elizabeth Fields – Josie Shane

Ms. Megan Noll – Alivia Johnson

Ms. Stephanie Blackton – Claire Antonides
