Dear Families,


Thank you so much for your support and helping your child(ren) with school since November 24th! We are so grateful to be able to get back to in person learning with your child(ren).


Please do not forget to bring school items back on Tuesday, January 19th including a charged chromebook. Teachers have been working to ensure a smooth transition back to in person learning for all of our students. We will be practicing routines and getting back into our normal schedule for the school year.


The January Newsletter includes important dates to remember, kindergarten screening information, and information from the Bellville Branch of the Mansfield Richland County Public Library.


If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free contact me at swanks@clearfork.k12.oh.us or call me at (419) 886-3244. Thank you so much for sharing your precious child(ren) with us!


Sincerely,

Stacey Swank

Online winter reading link - https://www.mrcpl.org/calendar/2021/01/04/winter-reading-program-2021


In the library catalog on the library's website, families can search for A.R. books. Towards the bottom of the page in an item's record it says:


Browse by AR level

Choose a book level and interest level to find more books to read


There is also other information on the page like read alouds, story elements and if the book has won any awards. Mrs. Reef is happy to help families find A.R. books as she knows it can be challenging to find A.R. books. Families can email her at sreef@mrcpl.org or call the library 419-886-3811.
