Ohio School Breakfast Challenge
 
Iron Giraffe Challenge
In 2016, PCIS became a WFSS International Partner School by completing the Iron Giraffe Challenge. After reading "A Long Walk to Water" by Linda Sue Park, our 6th grade ELA students were inspired and motivated to raise $1,000 to place a water drilling rig in South Sudan in order for children there, especially young ladies, to have clean water. By doing so, these children no longer had to carry water to their tribes and could now attend school.

State Momentum Award
Momentum Award 2017
The Ohio State Board of Education recently granted Piqua Central Interemediate School a 2016-2017 Momentum Award. The Momentum Award program is the State Board's way of recognizing schools that have received A's on each Value-Added measure included on Ohio's school and district report cards. Piqua Central's report card shows that students enjoyed greater than the state's expected growth measurement in Reading and Mathematics.  
A Best in Ohio: Connect to Nature School
 In 2017, Piqua Central Interemdiate School was awarded a Best in Ohio Connect to Nature School which is part of the Miami Valley Leave No Child Inside initiative. In conjunction with the Dayton Regional Green, Five Rivers Metroparks, Miami County Parks District, and Dayton Children's Hospital, our school was recognized for students becoming happier, healthier, and smarter by having experiences outdoors during the school day including: Glen Helen overnight trip, various grade level trips to Stillwater Prairie Watershed, Wastewater Treatment Plant, Water Treatment Facility, Miami County Pathfinder field trip, Hartzell Farm Day, and the Banana Slug Festival! 
 
We also launched the largest school-wide garden in Miami County in 2017 known as The Garden Tribe that features 13 raised garden beds, 3.5 acres of outdoor classroom space, and the Ohio State University master gardeners who teach lessons geared towards the education of students understanding where their food comes from and the process involved in growing it.  
 
PBIS State Bronze Award
In 2017, Piqua Central Intermediate School was recognized by the Ohio PBIS Network and State Support Team 10 and received a bronze award, which is the highest rating you can receive in the first year of PBIS implementation. In conjunction with the Indian Initiative and the Indian Way, the PBIS movement has established a positive school culture that not only sets the highest of expectations for academics, but also features the highest expectations for behavior by students and staff. The staff at Piqua Central were also given the opportunity to attend the PBIS State Showcase in Mansfield, Ohio to share with other schools around the state the school's identity of the Indian Way.
