Where Scholars Soar to Excellence
From the Desk of Principal Woods-Wallace
Greetings Middlebury Families!!
The session has finally arrived-- TESTING SEASON THAT IS!!! Third through eighth-graders will be given the Ohio State Test starting this Tuesday, April 20th. Scholars will take each part of the test one day at a time. Therefore, on Tuesday they will start with part one of the ELA portion and take part two on Wednesday. This pattern will continue through the following week on Tuesday, April 27th with Math. The last week of Ohio State Testing will take place starting on Tuesday, May 4th. On Tuesday, 5th and 8th graders ONLY will be given the Science test. Makeup Testing will take place through May 14th.
In regards to our virtual learners, ALL VIRTUAL SCHOLARS ARE REQUIRED TO TAKE THE STATE TEST ON CAMPUS! They should follow the same testing schedule as in-person scholars. If your virtual scholar cannot stay on campus for the entire day, the earliest time they should be picked up is at 12 noon.
In preparation for these tests, it is crucial that both virtual and in-person scholars get a good night’s rest, a healthy breakfast, a HUGE dose of encouragement, and arrive at school on time! Also, if you encounter any barriers in which you are unable to get your scholar(s) on campus, please contact the school at 330.752.2766 so that we can do our best to assist.
Lastly, please make sure that any scholar who comes on the campus is equipped with a water bottle. Due to COVID-19 safeguards, scholars are not allowed to drink from the community water fountains. Therefore, it is extremely important that they have their personal supply of water to stay hydrated throughout the day.
We all can say that this school year has been riddled with its' challenges! However, what joy and hope we will all have to see our scholars still make academic gains. Let us join together and give our scholars all the endorsements needed to ensure them that we have faith in their abilities. We want them to know that in order to achieve their best they MUST do their best-- thus this test is the perfect time to show what they know! Our scholars are STRONG because our families are STRONG and we ALL will continue to support them 100% of the way!
Thank you families for never giving up on our scholars!
TEAMING FOR RESULTS!

All Scholars and Visitors are STILL Required to Where a Mask BEFORE Entering the Building!
Families are reminded that all scholars and or ANYONE who wishes to enter Middlebury Academy MUST have a facial mask covering their nose and mouth. Our supply of masks is dwindling away. Therefore, it is CRUCIAL that our scholars arrive at school with a mask on. Starting this week, we will deduct Kickboard cash for scholars who come to school without a mask already on their faces.
