A word from the Principal...

I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of the students, parents, and staff for coming together as a team to meet the needs of the students in the Valley! Transitioning to a remote learning experience has been quite the adventure for everyone. Students should be enrolled in several google classrooms including the CFMS Students 2019-2020 class. Students can connect with their teachers and the administration through this learning platform. There is a Distance Learning tab on the CFVLSD web page that gives basic instructions for students to follow in order to access their work. Students have already been logging in and emailing teachers. There are daily video announcements from the Principal and teachers have set up virtual homerooms for students to connect and share with their teacher and the rest of the class! Parents, please keep checking Progress Book. Teachers will continue to enter grades and this will be the easiest way to monitor how your child is doing in all of their classes.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns please send us an email and we will get back with you shortly!

Word of the Month: Self-Control

“No matter the situation don't let your emotions overpower your intelligence.”

― Turcois Ominek

Each month CFMS focuses on a word tied to character development. There is a weekly quote read over the announcements, bulletin boards, and lessons related to the word.

From the Library...

We will continue reading books in the March Book Madness Tournament. Anyone who wants to read and test on the books that are competing against each other in the remaining eight may do so. Judges are required to AR test on their titles. Students can email Mrs. Mottayaw when they are ready to judge their books. Please refer to the Library Get Reading page:

Reading e-books on Sora:

Students can now easily add a selection of public library books to their CF Sora accounts. When students log into Sora with their CF ID, they can click the hamburger menu and add the Mansfield Richland public library (which is also called the Ohio Digital Library). So in addition to Clear Fork's 700 titles, they can choose the Ohio Digital Library after adding it and they will have thousands more titles. Mrs. Mottayaw will also be adding to Clear Fork's OverDrive/Sora collection. You can request titles through the OverDrive website or app.
