PRINCIPAL MESSAGE

Tonight is Family Always First Night. I hope you had a chance to spend some quality time with your family!


As a reminder, we have NO SCHOOL on Friday, November 12. Our teachers have a professional development day. Enjoy the extended weekend.


Our PTO will be meeting this Thursday at 9:30am. The location will be announced soon. We hope you can join us to learn more about what is happening at CIS.


It is important for us to have accurate contact information for our families. If you ever have changes then please log in to FinalForms to make these changes. You may want to log in to check the information already in there. https://wadsworth-oh.finalforms.com/


Have a GREAT week!!


Brandon Cobb, Principal

Thank You CIS Families

VIRTUAL FOOD DRIVE - Next Week

Next week we will have our virtual food drive! Like last school year, we will collect dollar bills (preferred over change) for our food drive. Every dollar is equal to three food items. Our building goal will be $5,000. Last year we collect over $6,000 so I think we can do it! There will also be other prizes the top classes. Let the competitions begin!


All of the money will be donated to the Salvation Army so they can purchase food from the local food bank. This impacts our community members and is a great way to give back. Students are invited to bring money in and participate in our spirit days.


Monday: Mismatch Monday/ crazy hair day

Tuesday: Sports Day

Wednesday: Pajama Day

Thursday: Twins Day (group day)

Friday: Color Wars: 5th grade white, 6th Grade Red

VETERANS DAY - Thursday

Veterans Day is this week. Our students will have an opportunity to view a virtual Veterans Day celebration. We are recording our celebration and will share the links with families after Thursday.


THANK YOU to all of our veterans! Your service, commitment, and sacrifice are important reasons why we have a great country!!

TITLE I PARENT SURVEY - LAST CALL

CIS is a school-wide Title I building. Therefore, Title I services will be supporting interventions primarily for RtI students in 5th or 6th grade. If you are unfamiliar with your child’s RtI intervention plan, please contact us for details.


The Title I schedule will be very flexible and students will be moving in and out of Title I services, depending on personal growth and/or scheduling. If your child continues on an RtI goal, be assured that interventions will be given for that goal either by your child’s teaching team, Title I or a combination of both. We are all working together to help your child succeed!


Please be aware that your child will be pulled during I/E (Intervention/Enrichment) for Title I, which is non-instructional time (unless you have been informed otherwise). The Title I tutoring is in addition to the regular classroom instruction and support.


Please let us know if you have any questions, comments or concerns. Our email addresses are listed below or you can call us at CIS: 330-335-1480.


We would appreciate it if you could complete the following Google form, within the next week, as it will help us in getting to know your child. It can be accessed at: TITLE I PARENT SURVEY. If you prefer a paper copy of this form, please email us and we will send it home with your child. If your child is working with more than one Title I teacher, you do not need to complete the form twice.


Sincerely,


Mrs. Freund - tfreund@wadsworthschools.org

OUTDOOR RECESS - DRESS FOR THE WEATHER

Fall has arrived and so has the inconsistent weather. Some days are warm and some days are much cooler. We go outside each day for recess unless it is raining or the temperature is 15 degrees or below. It is important for our students to pay attention to the weather so they are dressed appropriately. This will be more important as the temperatures drop in the coming weeks. Thank you for your help!

END-OF-DAY CHANGES

Please be sure to call Mrs. Lanham, our attendance clerk, prior to 2:45pm with any dismissal changes. We often have over 30 change of plans and it takes time to communicate with students and teachers. Sending an email isn't recommended. We prefer you call 330-335-1481. Thank You!

TikTok CHALLENGES

Some TikTok users have devised a monthly list that includes various pranks or “challenges” to take place at school. Unfortunately there are TikTok challenges for other months. I've attached a picture of a list of other possible TikTok challenges. If these challenges make their way into our school then we will be forced to hold students accountable for their actions that break our school code of conduct. Please talk to your child(ren) if you feel it is necessary. THANK YOU!

COVID-19 & ILLNESS AT CIS

Effective October 1, the following change will be made to the quarantine guidelines followed by schools in Medina County (the rest of the flow chart remains unchanged):


If a student meets the criteria of a close contact from exposure in a school setting and the student is not fully vaccinated or was not wearing a face covering during the period of exposure, the student will be permitted to stay in school if the student wears a face covering during the quarantine period (provided the student continues to be symptom free). This change only impacts the ability of a student to attend school, it does not apply to extracurricular activities or other situations that are not school-related.


On October 26th, new guidelines were made available regarding Extracurricular Activities. All other guidelines remain the same. You may click on the link to find the information sheet distributed by the Ohio Department of Health here.
