  • Grade Cards and Winter Fun

    Posted by Tammy Wagner at 1/22/2015
    As previously noted, the last day for this nine weeks will be Friday, January 23rd. Grade cards will go out approximately next Thursday barring any additional weather-related delays.
     
    Our students were busy with online, mid-year assessments in grades K, 1, 2, and 3 this week. We believe that these assessments will help inform our instruction and aid students in preparing for the new technology-based tests from the state of Ohio, called "Next Generation Assessments" or "NGAs." As of this year these NGA tests replace the former proficiency / achievement tests (OAAs). If you as a parent are interested in learning more about the new state assessments in grades 3, 4, 5, and 6, please plan upon attending the upcoming practice session in the High School Library on Wednesday, January 28th from 4:00 - 5:00 pm. You can also check out resources on our school website by clicking on the tab for "Students" and "Online Testing" in the pull down menu.
     
    But assessments are just one part of education. This month Carey staff members are modeling healthy lifestyles by participating in a water hydration challenge and our kindergarten students are learning music using rhythm sticks. We hope that your family finds a fun activity to participate in this winter.

  • Winter Scenes and Second Quarter

    Posted by Tammy Wagner at 1/16/2015
    Welcome Back Everyone!
    It has certainly been an interesting welcome back to school with all of the delays and cancellations. I hope Mr. Cole enjoyed all of his chocolate chip cookies! We have moved the second quarter back one week and it will end on Friday, January 23. Grade cards will go out the following week on approximately Thursday, January 29 barring any more inclement weather. 
     
    Next week many students in grades K, 1, 2, and 3 will take a mid-year NWEA MAP test in Reading and Math to see how their skills are developing and how much growth they still need to make prior to the end of the school year. We are also continuing to work on test preparation for the new Next Generation Assessments (NGAs) that will be taken late next month using chromebooks. These tests were formerly known as Ohio Achievement Assessments (OAAs). I hope that some of you can join us for the practice sessions on Wednesday, January 21 and January 28 from 4:00 - 5:00 pm in the High School Library.

  • Polar Express and a Visit from Mr. and Mrs. Claus

    Posted by Tammy Wagner at 12/22/2014
    We had a wonderful Friday filled with learning and fun. A number of students in the primary grades came to school dressed up in their pajamas. They worked hard on their lessons but also had time to watch the movie, "The Polar Express" in the auditorium. Mr. and Mrs. Claus also came to visit. We hope that everyone one of you has a blessed Christmas.
