    This month we have invited grandparents and special friends to enjoy lunch with our students in Kindergarten through grade three. This is a fun time for students to show off their classroom and play outside. A special thanks to the cafeteria and maintenance staff for all of the extra work and preparation.

    Sixth graders regularly take care of recycling at our end of the building. This is a big job which is greatly appreciated. On Tuesday, we will assess third grade students in reading on the Ohio Achievement Assessment. PTT plans to provide students with a lovely small breakfast of granola bars and fruit. Students also enjoyed the Boxtop store sponsored by PTT. 2 1

    Here are some updated pictures from the construction site. Concrete footers were poured this past Saturday. There is also a picture of the track. Last week and this week many of our classrooms, including grade 1, are also enjoying the fall-like weather and celebrating our Ohio heritage with studies involving apples and Johnny Appleseed. Also, in art class kindergarten students were working on fine motor skills by creating ice cream cones - Good bye Summer!

    This week I have added two additional tabs on the left for our parents and community. The first tab on the left is now a link regarding our board of education membership and meeting notes. Meetings take place in the board room next to the superintendent's office on the second Tuesday of every month at 7:00 pm. Midway down the left side is a new link called Parent Website Resources. I will be adding to this link regularly over the next few months to share a variety of resources in reading, math, social studies, and science as well as information on the "Next Generation Assessments" that are being mandated by the state of Ohio for implementation this school year.
    Thank you Mrs. Farquharson and Mr. Ritter for helping out with the OAA Reward Bowling Field Trip.  Our parent group sponsored the trip this past Saturday to reward students who passed all sections of their state-mandated Ohio Achievement Assessments last April. We had more than 170 students pass the test and approximately 70 students participated in the reward field trip.

    There are a lot of new things going on at Carey Elementary this year with technology. Mr. Nick Rider, our technology coordinator, has set up several chrome books for students. Students in grades Kindergarten through grade three have been using the lab as well as the chrome books to take assessments in reading and math this week. Soon carts of these chrome books will be housed on each floor and teachers will be able to use the chrome books during classroom instruction. How can you help at home? We are learning that our students struggle with using a "mouse," dragging and dropping items on the computer screen, and typing skills. Here are a couple websites to try out with your children and practice these skills:
    By the way, this week I added a tab to the left for our monthly newsletter and also uploaded the minutes from the most recent PTT meeting.

    The weather is much cooler on this Monday - perfect for fair. There will be no school on Thursday and Friday due to the Wyandot County Fair. I hope that your family is able to stop out and enjoy all the wonderful projects students have completed. These projects are done in partnership with the many student-oriented groups supported in our county. A few of those organizations include: Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, 4-H, and FFA. More information can be found at  Mrs. Lust, our speech and language teacher, is busy conducting hearing screenings in several grades this year. Also this week students in Miss Jacoby's class are working on recognizing numbers up to 5.

    We had a great turn out for our PTT meeting on Tuesday. We met in the staff lounge on the first floor and had a good time planning events for the year. Our next meeting will be Tuesday, October 7th at 7pm in the staff lounge.  Hope to see you then!
    The new menu for September is posted to the left. I had a great time reading different books to classrooms last week and hope to continue this week and next. Also, teachers and students are off to a great start learning.  In fifth grade students are learning about our solar system with Ms. Curns. Please remember that tomorrow is a 2 hour delay due to a teacher in-service. School will start at 10:00 a.m.

    Preschool has arrived. Mrs. Lininger and Mrs. Gabriel are our preschool staff through the North Central Ohio Educational Service Center. A federally funded Headstart preschool program is also available down the street from the school.
    A big thank you to Mrs. Kinn for conducting our Bus Safety program PreK through grade 3 at the beginning of the year.

    What a great first day of school! Please be sure to say hello to our new physical education teacher, Mrs. Beth Williams.

    Thank you all for coming to our Open House. A big thank you goes out to our custodians for getting the building into such great shape.  Also, teachers really enjoyed meeting with parents and welcoming students back to school. Our PTT volunteers also had some great information to share and we thank them for the refreshments. Raffle winners will be notified sometime next week.
    Teachers were hard at work during our in-service training on Monday learning the new Grade book system and reviewing training on blood-borne pathogens.

    We have had several calls this week asking about Open House. Open House will be on Monday, August 18, 2014 from 2:00-3:00 pm and from 6:00-7:00 pm. This is a time when you can meet teachers and staff. Students and parents may also bring school supplies, put money into lunch accounts, and pay school fees. Families new to Carey Schools may wish to visit with teachers and also attend a "New Student Orientation" information session hosted by Ms. Wagner in the elementary library at 2:15, 2:45, 6:15, and 6:45. PTT will also be here providing refreshments and much, much more. Stop by and see them!
    Please note that in the bar to the left is a link for the "Elementary Calendar." A lot of information is hosted on the calendar and details can be viewed by clicking on the item and, I believe, clicking on the right hand "edit" button in the subsequent window that pops up. I would appreciate parent feedback on how this is working since, being the primary editor, it is difficult for me to view from family's perspectives. :)
    Staff emails are being updated as per the protocols that our new technology administrator established. Also note that we will be implementing a new method for reporting student absences called "Safe Portal" (see information on left). Instead of calling into the school secretary, parents/guardians are asked to call the following number 1.844.288.7625.
    I am saddened to report that our Carey-Grace United Methodist After School program will not be in operation this coming school year due to lack of interest. Families who had expressed interest will be contacted via mail. I want to thank Pastor Penny MaGee and Ms. Martha Schreiner for all their work to help our families with after-school care. Please note that the information is no longer available on our web page.

    Construction is coming along at the new building. The building footprint has been laid out in stone. Also the crew from Alvada Construction was putting cement in the bottom of the retention/detention pond to aid drainage. Upcoming site work will include installing water lines, storm piping/structures, and gym foundations.
