A Walk in The Park

Reading with your children CAN be a walk in the park!

Join us at Bonnie Park on Saturday, October 26th, as Strongsville City Schools puts on its first Literacy Walk (weather-permitting)! You and your child will enjoy walking, reading, and celebrating literacy in an inviting, family-friendly environment.

  • Walk around the Bonnie Park pathway

  • Take in the beautiful Metroparks scenery

  • Listen to a story read by our amazing Strongsville City Schools staff

  • Discuss literature with your child

  • Learn new, easy-to-use reading strategies that you can implement at home

Students in Preschool through 2nd grade are invited at 10:00 AM-11:00 AM.

Students in grades 3-5 are invited at 11:30 AM-12:30 PM.

Please be sure to attend the event as close to your assigned start times as possible, as we will need time to allow for families to access parking. Please park in the lot at Bonnie Park, and we will direct you from there.

As the seasons change and the leaves begin to fall, be sure to come and celebrate nature and literature during our Literacy Walks. It is sure to be a breath of fresh air!

Crayola ColorCycle

Crayola and schools across North America are banding together to help kids understand the importance of their role in protecting the environment. That’s why they launched Crayola ColorCycle. Through this initiative, students in schools across the continental United States and parts of Canada can collect and repurpose used Crayola markers.

ColorCycle is also a great opportunity for teachers and their students to explore eco-friendly practices.

Please send in any dried up Crayola Markers and we will recycle them!

Human Resources District Update

  • As district we receive Title I funds that help to provide additional personnel to assist students in literacy. As a result, you have the right to know about the teaching qualifications of your child’s classroom teacher. These qualifications include:

    • Whether the teacher has met the Ohio teacher licensing criteria for the grade level and subject areas in which the teacher provides your child instruction.

    • Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or temporary status that waives state licensing requirements.

    • The undergraduate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate degree or certification (such as National Board Certification) held by the teacher and the field of discipline of certification or degree.

    • Whether your child is provided services by instructional paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.

All teaching staff in the Strongsville City Schools are properly licensed for their position(s) with no one teaching under emergency or temporary status. You may access teacher licensing information via the Ohio Department of Education website: http://www.education.ohio.gov. Type “Ohio Department of Education Educator Profile,” in your search bar. Type in the educator ID listed above or the teacher’s first and last name then click “Search Educator.” You may also request degree information by emailing Jennifer Pelko at jpelko@scsmustangs.org.
