Hello, Thomas Families!
Community Champion Awards
We are proud of our student community champions and staff member, Katie Guehl.
ST Math and 25 Years of Jiji
As stated in our DCS Curriculum Wiki, ST Math is our district-purchased supplemental resource for individualized and spaced practice in the area of mathematics. ST Math is meant to build student confidence in mathematics which is done through visual problem solving.
ST Math is a visual program that uses the brain’s innate spatial-temporal reasoning ability to solve mathematical problems through challenging puzzles and games. It is designed as a tool for practice and exploration rather than a graded assignment. We want to encourage intrinsic motivation and productive struggle as students think about the puzzles and connected mathematics.
Student learning with ST Math is enhanced through shared conversations whole group, small group, or individually with students. ST Math is aligned to the majority of Ohio’s Learning Standards and provides an enhancement, not a replacement or substitute, of the DCS Elementary School Mathematics Curriculum.
Reminder: Student Profile Form is Due Monday May 2nd
We are ready for class list creation for school year 2022-2023. Please feel free to share input on your child as needed. This is an optional form. I am confident this year's current teacher(s) will do an extraordinary job at finding a terrific class for each child.

A new word study program will be selected and implemented in the Fall of the 22-23 school year in primary grades. Word study program options will be available for community review on Monday, May 2 from 4-6 p.m. at Emerald Campus.
