Transition

We will use this section to keep you up to speed as we transition students from the elementary schools to Greene and from Greene to the junior high.


Rising 7th Graders


Thank you to everyone who attended the PTO Meeting this week!. Here is the Slide Show from PTO Presentation by the Junior High Counselors. The presentation was also recorded and posted to the PTO Facebook page.



Your child recently took the CogAT Test (Cognitive Abilities Test). This test measures reasoning and problem solving skills in verbal, non-verbal, and quantitative areas.


You should receive the results in the mail by the end of January. One of the reasons the district administered this test is to place students into advanced math classes at the junior high. The CogAT will be used in combination with scores from MAP and AIR, as well as classroom grades, for junior high math placement using this MATRIX. In the spring, the junior high will look at each student to determine if they are new qualifiers. If your child qualifies, you will receive a letter from Sycamore Junior High with additional information.

PBIS


Almost every family has experienced a time when their child behaves in ways that seem very different from her usual behavior. Understanding why this behavior occurs and addressing it in a positive way can help prevent future occurrences. Here is a helpful article for those times when you are dealing with challenging behavior.

Attention: Parents of incoming 7th grade students for 2019-2020

Two immunizations are required by the state of Ohio (ORC 3313.67) before the start of 7th grade. Tdap (tetanus, diptheria, and pertussis booster) and Meningitis (MCV4). Your child may already have had them at their 11 year old check up. If so please obtain a copy of those immunizations. If not, please make an appointment for your students to get these two immunizations. Once you have obtained copies of TDAP and MCV4, send them to Laurie Dobrowolski RN at E.H. Greene Intermediate School. Thank you!

BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION

Our next Box Tops collection will be Tuesday, January 22 through Friday, January 25. There will be a prize for the highest collecting class in each grade! Students should please turn Box Tops in to their homeroom teacher.

Community Outreach Luncheon for Winton Hills Academy

Winton Hills Academy (WHA) is Sycamore's "sister school" with approximately 350-400 preschool through 6th grade children. The student population lives in Cincinnati's largest public housing development, with 99-100% of the children qualifying for free and reduced lunch. Since it does not have a PTO, the Greene School steps in once a year to provide the teachers and staff with a "thank you for all you do" luncheon. This year our PTO will be taking lunch to WHA on January 25th. Please sign up to provide one or more items using this link :
