On behalf of the Andrew J. Rickoff School community, I want to express my sincerest gratitude and appreciation of your very generous donation of hats and gloves.
They will help keep our youngest scholars warm on the walk to and from school--and of course outside on the playground.
I would like to further take the time to explore our community partnership with the Masonic Lodge on Kinsman and connect you with two of our school-based teacher leaders and family support specialist.

On Saturday, March 13th, 2021 Mt. Calvary Lodge #76, , Phoenix Lodge#112, Zerubbabel Chapter #40 RAM, and AL Kaf Temple #109, all participated in The K.I.N.G Movement’s 2021 community service kick-off, “Return to School Breakfast.” Multiple families from each Buchtel Cluster School were invited to Crouse Community Learning Center (Crouse C.L.C) for this recognition celebration. The morning began with a hearty breakfast, then a brief introduction of the K.I.N.G movement and its purpose. Dr. Jashan Jabbaar-Hill, of Akron Children’s Hospital was the keynote speaker. Deacon Johnny Blash, a long-time volunteer at Crouse CLC, was recognized for his commitment to young people, and his longtime service to the Akron community. The morning ended with a presentation of back to school items. Mt Calvary#76 thanks all Masonic Families who were involved in making this a great success.
The Masonic District's brothers and sisters worked together to make a difference. The brothers of Excelsior Lodge No. 11, their sister chapter Queen Elizabeth Chapter No. 9 and two volunteers collaborated for an Adopt-A-Highway clean-up on Saturday, June 5, 2021. We rendered this service under the umbrella of the MWPHGL of Ohio at the "Troy Lee James Highway", the area of Interstate 490 numbered 71-90 in the west and 77 in the east. The area was named in memory of former Excelsior Lodge Brother Troy Lee James on March 19, 2003. Troy Lee James (April 18, 1924 - November 1, 2007), a former laborer and union member, was the longest-serving Democrat in the Ohio House of Representatives at the time of his death, serving from 1967-2000. Following the establishment of term limits in 1992, he was ineligible to run for office in 2000. He left the House in 2000, after 34 years in the legislature, making him the longest-serving Democrat in the history of the Ohio General Assembly. We hope and pray that we have made him proud.
