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

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.

If you would like to get involved please contact

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
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.
