Vocal Music Trip
On Spring Break of 2014, 49 of Southeast Warren's finest loaded a charter bus to explore the birthplace of Rhythm and Blues, and Country Music. We toured Graceland to trace the roots of Rock'n'Roll. We visited Sun Studio, where it all began, and recorded at RCA Studio, the same studio Elvis and all the great Nashville recorded at. We performed at the Country Music Hall of Fame, attended a performance at The Grand Old Opry and kicked up our heels at the Wildhorse Saloon. More importantly, we discovered how much every form of music reflects the culture from which it comes, and learned more than we ever thought we could. We bonded as a group, and discovered how wonderful it was to share this experience with each other. We made memories that will last a lifetime! Thanks to everyone who helped us achieve this goal!!

MS Walk - May 17th
Please support me! Multiple sclerosis affects millions of people, including our co-workers, friends, families and loved ones. That's why I registered for Walk MS. Walk MS is where we connect and each step we take brings us closer to a world free of Multiple Sclerosis.

I am asking the people in the Southeast Warren Community to help support me in Walk MS because this cause is meaningful to me. Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling, disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Millions of people are affected by MS and the challenges of living with its unpredictable symptoms, which range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS.

Your gift helps support cutting-edge research and programs and services for everyone impacted by MS. Ending MS means no one will receive an MS diagnosis again. Every step matters. Every dollar counts. Every person makes a difference.

To donate online please go to National MS Society.

If you would like to get involved please contact at the high school for more information.

Every 15 Minutes
On April 9th & 10th the Southeast Warren Jr/Sr High was/will be the host site of an innovative program entitled “Every 15 Minutes”, designed to dramatically instill the potentially dangerous consequences of drinking alcohol, among all teenagers. “Every 15 Minutes” refers to the fact that a person is killed in an alcohol-related traffic collision every quarter hour. While primarily targeted toward preventing alcohol-related traffic injuries and fatalities, the program is also designed to challenge students to think about drinking, personal safety, and the responsibility of making mature decisions when lives are involved.

This event was coordinated through: Lucas County Hospital, Mercy One, Eyerly Ball, Ellis Law Office, Norwalk Police Department, Warren County Sheriff’s Office,
State Medical Office, Tomin Towing, Lacona Fire & Rescue, Milo Fire & Rescue, Judicial District 5B, Jolesch Photography, Warren County Emergency Management, Warren County Attorney’s Office, Pierschbaucher Funeral Home, Motor Friends Church, and Southeast Warren School.

We would like to thank all of those who chose to take part and we would like to encourage you to have a discussion with your child about the ramifications of under aged drinking.

Help Wanted!
Our school district has many talented students in the arts - whether it's a Kindergarten student bringing home that picture you put on your refrigerator, a high school student in a school play, or possibly a 5th grader just learning to play a musical instrument.  Parents and community members can make a difference for these students.  The Fine Arts Boosters plays a vital role in supporting our fine arts programs.

If you have a child in K-12 involved in Art, Music, Speech, Debate, Drama or Band, you are automatically a member of the Fine Arts Boosters. 

Please plan on attending a Boosters meeting and help us discuss some ideas on a fund raiser and a showcase of the talents of the students involved in the Fine Arts!

Every 15 Minutes
Life's lessons are best learned through experience. But when the lessons learned from drinking and driving, the results are tragic.

On Wednesday, April 21, 2010, the Southeast Warren Jr-Sr High school students had the opportunity to learn a real-life lesson without the tragedy and risk. In cooperation with local law enforcement, fire departments, rescue teams, this lesson was brought home to our students with a mock accident resulting from driving under the influence.

The accident was fake, but the emotions were real.

The day's events were videotaped and photographed. These are a must see for all - a photo gallery is included on our website. The video will be online soon. (More info...)
