Dear Principal Wren:
Congratulations! It’s my honor to inform you that Ohio’s State Board of Education has
granted Herman K Ankeney Middle School the 2016 Momentum Award. The
Momentum Award recognizes schools that have received A’s on every value-added
measure included on the 2016 Ohio School Report Card. For your students, you are
keeping the learning momentum high!
Your report card for the 2015-2016 school year indicates that your pupils made greater
than expected progress in reading and mathematics. This is especially commendable
because you no doubt have a diverse array of students whose educational backgrounds
and learning needs vary. As a winner of a Momentum Award, you are part of a group of
schools that is showing that children of every background and ability level can achieve.
Members of the State Board of Education appreciate your leadership and dedication of
your staff to achieve this success. Please convey our thanks to your teachers, support
staff and parents for believing that every child can succeed academically and for making
sure that every child does.
Yours is a great example for all Ohio schools.

Thomas Gunlock
State Board of Education
