The Ohio State Board of Education granted the Miamisburg City School District, Miamisburg High School and Miamisburg Middle School the 2016 Momentum Award. The Momentum Award recognizes districts and individual schools that have received A's on every value-added measure included on the 2016 Ohio School Report Card.
The 2015-16 report card showed that our students enjoyed greater than expected growth in reading and mathematics.
The letter from the State Board of Education sent congratulations to Miamisburg Schools for recruiting and motivating the high quality staff needed to achieve this success. They wished to thank the teachers, support staff and parents for believing that every child can succeed academically and for making sure that every child does.
Congratulations to all the Miamisburg students who made this award possible.

Miamisburg High School Theatre is pleased to announce their new program with the production of Into the Woods, Jr. The program launched this past September after a gap of over 7 years.
A group of students and parents within the community pulled together professionals within the Dayton area to help them write the business plan in order to launch the new program. In conjunction with the school district, the organization is close to being able to raise the money to cover the costs for this show. Their ultimate goal will be to cover their production costs so that profits may go toward continuing the program.
Many area theatres have donated set pieces and materials, use of costumes, and use of equipment (Children’s Performing Arts of Miamisburg, Vandalia Youth Theatre, Dare to Defy Productions, and Playhouse South). Through these generous donations as well as the many hours of volunteered time by families and our creative team, there will be a full weekend of shows on November 18-19, 2016 at Memorial Auditorium.
