Good Luck, Third Graders!

Good luck to our 3rd grade students who take the Reading OAA today! Students must pass this, or an alternative, assessment in order to be promoted to 4th grade. Kudos to our 3rd grade teachers who have straddled two sets of content standards in order to prepare our students for this high stakes assessment as well as the 4th grade curriculum.

ODE Onsite Review

Federal programs auditors from the Ohio Department of Education are in our district today to review our use of Title funds. Please welcome them as they walk through buildings and meet with selected staff members. Preparation for this visit was a months-long process led by Karen O'Connell. Outstanding job, Karen!

We are a Google apps District!

We are officially a Google Apps district. For those tech savvy staff: go to www.google.com, get in there and play around. You can get in by using your full Mt. Healthy email address as your username (for example, ejohnson@mthcs.org; do NOT use your gmail account or any other email account). The initial password is: happymthcs. For those still clinging to notebooks and pens: we'll be rolling this out with support and training, so stay tuned. Email Elizabeth Johnson if you need help logging in.
