MAP Testing

We originally scheduled MAP testing for August 29 and 30. On Wednesday, August 29, as we were testing, the MAP website went down. We decided to cancel testing for August 30 and reschedule for next week to allow them time to resolve the problem. We will be testing on September 5 and 6. All students will test from 8:30-10:15. We will provide students extra time if needed. Math testing will occur on September 5 and reading is scheduled for September 6.

Any student who finished the reading test on August 29 has a score in the system and will not need to re-test. Students who were in the middle of the test will be able to resume where they stopped.

Walkathon Information!

Our 12th Annual Walk-A-Thon will take place during the school day on Thursday, September 27th, rain or shine. The Walk-A-Thon is an exciting opportunity for students to raise money to benefit our school, simply by enjoying a walk on the school track with their friends and teachers! Students will collect pledges from family members and friends in the weeks leading up to the Walk-A-Thon, with a promise to walk at least one mile as a thank you for their support. Students will have the chance to earn prizes based on the pledges that they collect, including gift cards, gift baskets, and more!

The Walk-A-Thon is one of our leading fundraisers, and all of the money collected goes directly back to our students and staff at EH Greene. Last year, the Walk-A-Thon raised over $25,000, and we would love to do that again!! Please consider supporting this great cause by sponsoring your child and seeking the support of those around you. If you are interested in volunteering to help with Walkathon, please email Megan Lee (,or Kathy Mercurio ( Additional information and pledge envelopes will be coming home with students next week on September 13th.

Also we will be giving back to our local community by collecting GENTLY used adult and kid shoes(*no cleats or dance shoes*) to Cincinnati's Freestore FoodBank 'Back on Track' program. A shoe collection bin will be in entrance starting next week.

PBIS Corner

This week’s spotlight video demonstrates hallway behavior. You’ll notice we expect students to quietly walk on the right side of the hall, keeping their hands to themselves. Locker time is also featured in the video. This can be a challenge at Greene with lots of kids in a small space. Talking with your child about how to handle this challenging time is a great help to our teachers! This is a time when being safe, responsible and respectful is an absolute must! Good problem solving skills help too! Enjoy the video and talk with your child about these challenging times of the day.

Just a reminder about changes in dismissal plans

If your child should need to be picked up early or if you need to communicate a change to their dismissal , please use the white and yellow "Parent Communication Forms" whenever possible. A hand-written note is also acceptable. Have your child bring that note to the "Pass Window" before homeroom in the morning and we will have it processed accordingly. Thank you!
