NGC Update

Sept. 18, 2022

Fall is Around the Corner

NGC Families and Students, I hope your student has settled in to life as a freshman in the NGC! Last week we made it to Progress Report time, which is great time for students to check their progress, continue their routines or make adjustments if needed. If students have established work and study routines and they are working, keep it up! If a student is struggling, please remind them to check in with their teacher more regularly, ask questions out loud or privately, and give their best effort.


Use study hall time effectively to complete missing assignments or review notes and information from class so the repetition of information will help them when it comes time for a test or quiz. Flex time is also a time to check in with teachers on missing assignments and questions. There is still plenty of time left in the quarter to make improvements, so encourage students to keep working towards turning in all assignments. All of the core classes freshmen are enrolled in are graduation requirements, so performing at their best and earning credit will help prepare them for next year and future years of high school and beyond!

Hearing and Vision Screening


Vision and Hearing screenings will be administered to all ninth grade students as required by state law. If you do not want your child screened please sign a required waiver. (See link below)


Why is it important to have your child’s vision screened? Young children with vision problems do not know the way that they see the world is not the way they should be seeing it! Without early detection and treatment, children’s vision problems can lead to permanent vision loss and learning difficulties.


Vision screening will consist of the following: Distance visual acuity - ability to see objects far away


Why is it important to have your child’s hearing screened? Hearing is important for speech, language development, reading and learning. A hearing screening can detect if your child needs further hearing testing. Even if your child has passed a hearing screening previously, their hearing can change. Hearing problems can be related to medical problems. Hearing loss is invisible and child may appear to be not paying attention.


Hearing screening will consist of the following test: Audiometry - Screening of hearing acuity.


A hearing screening only provides a snapshot of how your child performs on the day the test was administered and is not a substitute for a complete hearing evaluation by an audiologist.


You are welcome to contact the nurse to learn the screening findings. If your child does not pass the vision or hearing screening, the school nurse will send a letter to share the results and may make a recommendation for further evaluation by an eye care specialist or hearing specialist. If you have any questions about the school vision/hearing screening program please call the school nurse.


If your child fails either part of the screening, a rescreen and/or a written referral will be made.


9th grade screening will take place the week of October 24th 2022.


Hearing and Vision Screening Waiver

The state of Ohio released report cards for schools last week. We are so proud of the effort of our kids, staff, and administrative team in the work they put in to achieve these results. We know our kids can compete not just locally but globally with the best. We will review the data and find little things we can adjust to continue striving for new heights.
