The Twenty First Annual “Nine-to-Five” Breakfast was held at Mon Ami Restaurant on May 1, 2015. A total of nineteen students were recognized during the program from the following districts: Benton-Carroll-Salem, Danbury, Genoa Area, Lakota, Port Clinton, Put-in-Bay, and Woodmore Local Schools. The breakfast and program are hosted each year by North Point ESC and the Ottawa County Regional Cabinet of Superintendents.
The Nine-to-Five Breakfast was established as a means to recognize students in grades 10, 11, and 12 who have demonstrated marked improvement in their educational activities from September (ninth month) through May (fifth month) ~ thus "Nine-to-Five." Students are nominated for showing improvements in attitude, attendance, academics, or overall school performance.
Each student recognized at the “Nine to Five” Breakfast selects one “Significant Person” to honor during the breakfast for the support, dedication, caring, or compassion provided to the student which contributed to his/her marked improvements. This year’s “Significant Persons” included parents, other family members, teachers, and administrators.
