Ryan Rua's Jersey Retired
On Friday night, January 16th, 2015 at the halftime of the boy's basketball game with Olmsted Falls at Marion L. Steele High School, we had the opportunity to honor one of our own - Ryan Rua.  On behalf of the city of Amherst, Steve Sayers (Superintendent), Matt Rositano (Head Baseball Coach), Al McConihe (Former Head Baseball Coach), Brian McGee (Lake Erie College Baseball Coach), and the entire Amherst Steele Baseball family, we are extremely excited, proud, and honored to retire Ryan's #2 jersey.  Ryan is the first Amherst athlete to play a professional sport and the first Amherst Steele High School athlete to have his number retired.  Ryan was presented with the jersey he wore while playing here at Amherst, and with a banner, that will be displayed at the Amherst baseball field.  To read more about Ryan's story from Steele to the majors, click on "Read More..."!  
School Board Approves All-Day Kindergarten
At Monday's Board Meeting, the Amherst School Board voted to move forward with implementing tuition-free, all-day, every day Kindergarten for the 2015-2016 school year. Amherst Schools are currently on track to be financially stable through at least the 2018-2019 school year. Recent cost-saving measures and the restructuring of staff in other areas will support the move to all-day Kindergarten. 
Amherst Police Honored at Board Meeting
The Amherst School Board honored the Amherst Police Department at Monday's Board Meeting for all of the help and support they provide to the Amherst Schools. As a community, we thank our police department for all that they do to ensure our safety and security!
