Acorn Alley Program Earns Top Community Partnership Award!

The Benton-Carroll-Salem Local School District seeks to redefine its role in the lives of our children beyond the traditional school day and to provide a safe, productive, and stimulating haven for our children. Therefore, B-C-S Community Education offers Acorn Alley, a before and after school program at R.C. Waters Elementary. The Acorn Alley (A Child’s Optional Resource Network) program is located at R.C. Waters Elementary School and serves district families with children in Kindergarten through 7th grade. The program promotes the social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development of those participating and provides a safe environment for our children.

Acorn Alley received the Top Community Partnership Award through the United Way of Greater Toledo for providing a quality environment and supporting homework achievement. Data is reported annually to United Way to show the academic gains of the students attending. United Way will continue to invest in Acorn Alley for the 2018-2019 school year to help meet the needs of our community.

Students Explore Put-In-Bay!

On June 1, 2018, the Oak Harbor Police Department and Chief Weirich sponsored a trip to Put-In-Bay for the Crossing Guards at Oak Harbor Middle School and the Bus Guards at R.C. Waters Elementary. The Department has sponsored this annual trip for over 20 years. This trip is a reward for the responsibility and effort the students put forth during the school year as guards. Students and chaperones rode the Jet Express over to the island. The trip began with a visit to the Historic Fish Hatchery Aquatic Education Center where students learned about Lake Erie’s native fish and the ecosystem through exhibits. Students also had the opportunity to fish while there. A visit to the Lake Erie Islands Nature & Wildlife Center allowed students to explore a collection of North American wildlife, fish, and birds. While visiting Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial, students learned about the history of the island and took an elevator ride to the observation deck. Students also engaged in gemstone mining while exploring Perry’s Cave. A visit to the Butterfly House allowed students to experience several different species of butterflies from all over the world. The day was filled with engaging learning opportunities for the students.
