OHHS Thespians to perform Footloose!

Been working so hard!

We're punching our cards.

Eight hours- for what?


For what? For what?

To give our community a foot-stomping, knee-slapping, hand-clapping spring musical!


Come on out to the Oak Harbor High School Auditorium March 8-10th and join the Thespians as they travel back to the 1980's in hopes of making dancing legal again in Bomont, Texas!


Here's how things have been boot-scooting along this week:

Calamity Days


Just to keep you all in the loop, we had our 5th school cancellation on Tuesday, 2/12/19.


IF we have to close school again due to weather, it will be our 6th day. This will mean that students will have to work on their first day of online lessons (aka "blizzard bags") on that day. I will make sure to remind you of this in the Instant Alert message. IF we have to miss a 7th and 8th day, students will have to work on their online lessons these days too.


I know that our building principals and teachers have made sure that online lessons are posted and that students are clearly aware of how they can be accessed. If you have any questions I encourage you to call your child's school.


Also, I will remind you that if your phone number changes, please alert the Board of Education Office at (419) 898-6210 so that we can update it into our Instant Alert system.


Stay safe during this winter season, and remember that Spring is just around the corner!


Sincerely,

Guy Parmigian

R.C. Waters Elementary hosted its annual Breakfast With a Loved One on Valentine’s Day!

R.C. Waters Elementary hosted its annual Breakfast With a Loved One on Valentine’s Day! Hundreds of family members joined the students for donuts. R.C. Waters would like to extend a special thank you to the parent group, TIE (Together in Education), for funding the breakfast. The staff is already looking forward to next year’s breakfast!

Valentine’s day was lots of fun. We have some very creative students and parents- check out these Valentine boxes and Valentine heart-shaped hair!!

R.C. Waters would like to highlight the top Class Dojo winners for the month of January!

R.C. Waters Elementary participates in a school wide initiative. It is called Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS). PBIS is a process for creating safer and more effective schools by allowing a safe and productive learning environment where teachers can teach and all students can learn. R.C. Waters has adopted a unified set of expectations for behavior in our school. The unified classroom expectations, found in every classroom and non-classroom settings in the school, are as follows: Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Ready.


Student behavior is documented using a tool called ClassDojo. ClassDojo is a free behavior tracking system that reinforces positive behaviors and quickly engages students in becoming accountable for their own choices. One of the main benefits is the easy opportunity to communicate with parents. On a scheduled rotation, students are able to “shop” from the Dojo reward cart using the points they have earned for meeting the behavior expectations.


R.C. Waters would like to highlight the top Class Dojo winners for the month of January.
