While the skies may be gray many of the days in January and February, the positive work of our students and staff brightens every day at Cory-Rawson! Many CRES fourth and fifth grade students spent their Martin Luther King, Jr. Day at STEM camp. Our school partnered with the Bowling Green State University College of Education and Human Development for a day full of engineering, mathematics, and science.

The high school quiz bowl team earned runner-up at both the Hancock County tournament and during regular season play. Congratulations to coach David Mertz and his team – the tournament was a nail-biter, coming down to the final question!
