Kindergarten Screening

Kindergarten Screening is taking place in the Primary School on May 8th, 9th and 10th. During this process, children scheduled to begin kindergarten in the fall spend approximately 45 minutes with our kindergarten teachers, nurse, & speech/language therapists to give parents and our staff a comprehensive profile of their strengths and weaknesses. This gives the parents an idea of what skills they need to focus on before August and gives our staff the information needed to create balanced class lists.

2nd Grade Poetry Recitals

Our 2nd grade teachers have been working with their students to learn and appreciate poetry. During these recitals, parents come in to watch their child's class recite a series of poems and also get to listen to their own child recite a poem of his or her choice by heart. The schedule for these memorable performances is as follows:


Mrs. Wilson- 15th at 2:30

Mrs. Moon- 16th at 2:30

Mrs. Pitcher & Mrs. Yu- 16th at 6:30

Mrs. Caldwell- 17th at 2:30

Mrs. Ratliff-18th at 2:30

6th Grade PBL Fundraiser

Earlier in the year, the 6th grade students read the novel, A Long Walk to Water. It tells the story of a boy, Salva Dut, who grew up in the 80's in the midst of a civil war between northern and southern Sudan. As an adult, Mr. Dut has made a commitment to providing the poor villages he grew up in with clean drinking water through an organization called Water for South Sudan. The 6th grade students have been researching ways to make money to help funding for this this agency and will be holding a fundraiser from 7:00 to 8:00 on Tuesday evening, the 15th in the Intermediate School gym. Donations can be made that evening or made directly at www.waterforsouthsudan.org.

Wax Museum

The 4th grade students will be presenting the annual Famous Ohioans "Wax Museum" on May 17th. Students will be selecting a famous Ohioan and then perform as if they are a wax figure in an Ohio history museum. This will require students to research the man or woman chosen, write a report, and then transform themselves to look as much like the character as possible. Parents are invited on this day to visit the museum and to hear students recite a prepared speech when "activated".

Right to Read Week

The Title I teachers worked to inspire a love of reading in students during the week of May 7th. The theme for the week was "Readers are Leaders" and activities began on Monday with several interactive shows in the auditorium provided by MidWest School Shows which all students in both buildings had the opportunity to attend. Throughout the week, teachers were encouraged to focus more heavily on books and reading than normal, and the Intermediate School teachers were encouraged to participate in activities with the Primary School students. On Friday, the 11th, the 1st graders attended "Reader's Theater" productions (short plays) in the 4th grade classrooms that featured scripts, costumes and backgrounds. The 6th graders provided similar activities when 3rd grade students visited their classrooms. Also on that day, the 5th grade students visited classrooms of the 2nd grade and kindergarten students, reading books to them.

Staff Appreciation Week

While the Right to Read activities were going on, the PTO and building secretaries worked to make sure all staff members felt more appreciated than ever during the week of May 7th. Box lunches were provided for all staff members on Monday, and all staff members were provided with surprises and small tokens of thanks throughout the week.
