Tune in every Monday for #MakeADifferenceMonday where we will feature a stakeholder, student, or fellow alumni answering "Five questions for B-C-S"

This week B-C-S is featuring, Classroom Intervention Aide at Oak Harbor High School, Traci Tomor!

1. Please share a little about yourself and how long you have been a part of the B-C-S Local School district.

  • Craig and I have been married for 23 years and have 2 boys who attend B-C-S Schools. Kyle is a junior and Tate is in 6th grade (can't believe we will have a senior and the other in Jr. High next year!). As a family we enjoy anything outdoors such as kayaking, fishing, traveling, hiking and attending our boys sporting events. Sometimes I drag them to an auction as I enjoy restoring antiques. I'm a graduate of Woodmore High School and I married a Rocket graduate! For 15 years I worked for Owens-Illinois as a corporate travel agent arranging worldwide travel and meetings. After OI restructured, our department was no longer needed which led me to where I am now and I couldn't be happier! I started at B-C-S 7 years ago as a parent volunteer, which led to subbing in various positions though out the district, until I was officially hired as a Classroom Intervention Aide for our Special Ed Dept. Best job EVER!

2. What is your current position with B-C-S schools?

  • My position is Classroom Intervention Aide at Oak Harbor High School working with our 8th-12th grade IEP students in their classrooms. My day includes assisting teachers and helping the students with classroom work, tests, notes, or whatever is given that day. I almost feel as if I'm back to school 20 some years later! I work closely with our Special Ed team to accommodate our student’s needs.

3. What do you enjoy most about being a teacher’s aide at OHHS?

  • I enjoy my job because of 1 reason - the KIDS! Everyday my job is different, I get to know most of our students, and help them with academic and life challenges. My favorite part is seeing a student accomplish something they didn't think was even possible.

4. What does Rocket Pride mean to you?

  • Rocket Pride to me means never give up on yourself! One reason I chose to work for B-C-S because all of our staff in every building help our kids not only in the classroom, but with everyday life skills and struggles. Maybe it's walking with the scared 1st grader down the hall, a smile to start their morning, helping the kid who is trying to fit in at the lunch table, or the one who just needs someone to listen and not judge. I'm proud my own kids are Rockets, this is a great community working together who make a difference in our children's lives. If we don't give up on them, they won't give up on themselves!

5. What is something you would like to accomplish off of your Bucket List?

  • Our family bucket list is to visit as many states & their state parks as possible. For myself, the next on the list is to zipline! However, if my fear of heights gets the best of me, it is to swim with the dolphins.

Tune in every week for Levy Facts!

From Time to Time the District will put out facts about the two ballot issues before voters on May 8 called "Levy Facts." Check for more information about the levies or call the Board Office with questions (419) 898-6210.

  • The state passed a law last week, called the B-C-S Bridge, to provide short-term financial help for Benton-Carroll-Salem School District in light of the de-valuation of the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Plant.

    5 Things You Need to Know About the “B-C-S Bridge”

    1. It provides $1.8 Million per year for 3 years.

    2. This money will bridge the gap between today and when we begin collecting the new monies that voters are being asked to pass on May 8.

    3. Yes, the two levies on the May 8th ballot are still necessary. They will bring in $3.4 Million per year.

    4. The total being lost by the district is $6 Million per year

    5. While thankful for the efforts of Rep. Arndt and Sen. Gardner, the school board and Treasurer worked really, really, really hard to fight for this short-term money to help ease the burden of taxpayers.

Oak Harbor Middle School Welcomes Nationally known Speaker Tony Hoffman

On March 19th nationally known speaker Tony Hoffman spoke to Oak Harbor Middle School 6th and 7th graders. Tony was a former BMX professional and is currently an Olympic coach. Tony shared an inspirational and educational message about drug abuse and the impact that drugs can have on the students and their families. During his presentation Mr. Hoffman shared his own struggles and battles with drug addiction. Tony also talked with students about the importance of perseverance in their lives. He made sure to answer any questions from the students after his talk. Principal Laramie Spurlock stated: "Tony did a wonderful job tailoring his talk to the age and maturity level of our students." Superintendent Guy Parmigian added: Tony's message of the dangers of drugs--especially the abuse of prescription medications--made him a very engaging and relevant speaker. It is hoped that Tony's message will make our students more resilient in their quest to pursue healthy choices in their lives."

Benton-Carroll-Salem School District would like to thank the following sponsors for making this presentation possible: Judge Winters, Judge Giesler, Judge Hany, Sherriff Levorchick, Ottawa Co. Prosecutor Van Eerten and Port Clinton Kiwanis Club.
