Muraski Tribune: Issue 30


A Message From the Principals

Dear Muraski Families,

We hope you had a nice weekend and enjoyed some of the sunshine on Saturday! We wanted to say a big thank you to all those parents who vounteered their time with the food drive last week. Our school was able to collect 2,135 items which will be donated to the Strongsville Food Bank. Congratulations to the 4th grade who collected the most food items with a total of 631. The fourth grade class will earn a popsicle party!

Just a reminder that our third, fourth, and fifth graders have their ELA Ohio State Tests this week. Third grade will be taking their test on April 6 & 7, fourth grade on April 5 & 6, and fifth grade will be on April 7 & 8. This is a very important week for our students as they have been working hard all year learning and preparing. Please make sure your child gets to bed early the night before testing. It is also important the kids eat a healthy breakfast the morning of their tests.

Have a great week,

Mike Griffen & Katie Hawk

March PBIS Updates - Reflection Sheets

We are going to begin using Reflection Sheets here at Muraski. The Reflection Sheets will be used with students for both major and minor offenses. These sheets are a great way for us to have a conversation with the students on the behavior that occurred and different ways they could have handled the situation. If your child brings this paper home, we are asking for your support in talking with your child and signing off on the reflection sheet. Please then send the sheet back to school with your child. Our goal is to provide opportunities for students to learn from setbacks, set goals, and make changes to positively impact their education. We appreciate your support in advance as we work to help all students have success with our PBIS initiative.

OST Testing Dates: Grades 3-5

Spring testing will be here before we know it. We want to provide you with these dates because it is important that your child is in school on their assigned testing date prior to the start of the test. Students tend to do their best when their routine is consistent. We recognize that you are not able to control everything, but if you could be cognizant of these dates when making appointments, coming in late, etc. we would appreciate it. Note: If a child is late to school on a testing day, they are not able to enter the classroom if the test has already started.

ELA Grade 3: April 6 & 7

ELA Grade 4: April 5 & 6

ELA Grade 5: April 7 & 8

Math Grade 3: April 27 & 28

Math Grade 4: April 28 & 29

Math Grade 5: April 12 & 13

Science Grade 5: April 27 & 28
