Patriot's Day

Patriot’s Day - Since 9/11 fell on Saturday, we had our annual parade last Monday. We invited the service department, police department, and the fire department to join us at school on this special day. We had banners for our students to hold and a flag for every student to wave. Pastries were also sent back with our guests to show our appreciation for all that they do to keep us safe. It was a fun day!

Important Reminders

Important Reminders

  • Please remember to send notes if you are changing your child's after-school plan for the day.
  • If you or anyone on your child's emergency contact list is picking up your child from school, they will need to show an Ohio driver's license or a state ID.
  • PowerSchool Update - Please complete your information in PowerSchool! You should have received a link from computer services to update your information. We will need to have accurate phone numbers. All the information will need to be completed as soon as possible. It is imperative that we are able to reach you, should your child become ill, or in case of an emergency. We still have many students without updated information. If you do not have the email with the link or need assistance with this, please contact Mrs. Flick in the office at 440.942.7244.
