PTO Meeting, April 6
Join us for the final PTO meeting of the school year! The meeting will be held in the library at 7:00pm. This is a really important meeting to attend, as we will review the year’s accomplishments and will start planning for next year. There are a number of committees planned for the 2016-17 school year – come learn about the initiatives and how you can get involved in any of the following:
AIR Testing Begins This Week
Ohio’s standards-based education system establishes the criteria that define what your child is expected to know at each grade level. Students in grades 3-9 have the opportunity to demonstrate the standards they have learned when they take Ohio’s State Tests in April (aka “AIR” tests). Please check the date for your child’s tests, and be sure that they get a good night’s rest and a healthy breakfast on each testing day. The complete schedule can be found here: https://secure.onecallnow.com/Attachments/257846_e503eec4-8f57-4e9b-8298-b739fbe1e971.pdf
Starry Night Festival, April 10
The festival will offer dynamic learning experiences with experts from Columbus’ premier educational, business, and non-profit organizations. Geared toward students through 8th grade and their families, the event highlights the connection between all the arts and science—with the theme, “Art and Science – Fueling Imagination”. Starry Night provides the opportunity for your business to participate in many ways: bring your family, volunteer, work with us to develop an interactive activity for the students, or be recognized for supporting the festival through a financial sponsorship. http://westervillepartnersforeducation.org/starry-night/
Moving Up Night, April 12
Westerville City Schools invites incoming sixth grade students and their parents to attend Moving Up Night, an evening of orientation focused on the transition from elementary to middle school. The Genoa Middle School orientation will be on April 12 at 6:30pm. See more at: http://www.wcsoh.org/News/4782#sthash.AciQz1W5.dpuf
