WB Changes School Calendar
Please be advised that due to our 15 snow days, Western Brown Board of Education has had to utilize built in calamity make up days on our 2013 - 2014 school calendar.

School will now be in session on Friday May 16, Friday May 23, and (newly added) Friday May 30.  The State has given us nine calamity days and 3 blizzard bag days, leaving WB with three days to make up.  We were fortunate that we had scheduled two Fridays in May for make ups and had the last Friday to add to make up the three needed.

WB Remembers and Recognizes Veterans
On November 11, 2013, Western Brown Schools held Veteran's Day ceremonies across the district.  The day started with breakfast at the high school and then a program presented by Western's FFA and JROTC students.  Later in the day, Mt. Orab Middle School and Hamersvile Elementary and Middle School both hosted their own ceremonies.  Mt. Orab Elementary students wrote letters to Veterans in their families or for area Veterans.  Western Brown would like to send out a heartfelt THANK YOU to all who have served their country and to their families for sharing their loved ones for the pursuit of freedom and the American Dream.  We salute you!
