Help beautify downtown Ada

Become a hanging flower basket sponsor

The village of Ada invites residents to consider being a hanging flower basket sponsor this year, according to Jami Hall, village administrator.

The village’s annual tradition of hanging flower baskets on Main Street has caught on and is now part of the downtown beautification of Ada. The program started in 2014.

Twenty-eight hanging baskets will go up this spring planted with petunias provided by Stratton Greenhouses, Bluffton.

The cost to sponsor one basket is $125. That covers the planting, dirt and fertilizer. The village handles the watering of the plants.

Calamity days taken their toll to school year

Here's is Ada's make-up schedule

Calamity days have taken their toll during this year’s Ada school year. Here’s an update on make-up plans from Meri Skilliter, Ada superintendent.

“We will have a regular instructional day this Friday, Feb. 15, in lieu of a previously scheduled professional development day to make up one day. 

“We will go to school March 4-8, rather than having our spring break that week.  That week was designated to absorb any additional calamity days over 5. 

“We currently have 6 to make up, so those are the six days we will use.  Any additional days will be added to the end of the school year.”
