Van Wert Elementary had a special visitor, Tuesday, September 30. Dr. John Barge, State School Superintendent, stopped by on his tour of schools and left with nothing more than positive comments about how Van Wert is transforming learning through the use of technology in the classroom. Dr. Barge stated, "What this enables me to do now is to go back and when I see schools that need some help in other areas of the state, I can tell them to go see Van Wert Elementary School, because they are doing some amazing stuff engaging students with technology." Congratulations Van Wert Elementary faculty, staff and students--You make us proud! We are PSD and we are on the move!
