  • Early Release Cancelled

    Posted by Tammy Wagner at 2/27/2015
    Dear Parents and Friends,
    SCHEDULE CHANGE:  The Early Release for Next Week has been cancelled. At this time the day will be a full day of school 8-3.
    The newsletter that went home with students today does not reflect this change.
    March menu has been posted on the website and is also on the back of the newsletter.
    This week marks our second week of testing with the new "Next Generation Assessments" from the state. We will continue testing next week. Remarkably, the schedule thus far has worked out very well. Chromebooks are also working well as is the Internet connectivity. It is a tribute to our staff and administration - their time spent training and planning - that we have experienced only minor issues with the testing environment, not all under our control.

  • Blizzard Bags and Midterms (Progress Reports)

    Posted by Tammy Wagner at 2/20/2015
    Dear Parents,
    Please note that the district has used up its five (5) calamity days for the school year. Thursday, February 19 was our first "Blizzard Bag." If your family was unable to print out the information, please do not worry. Staff are sending hard copies home with students today or early next week. Also, I know that grade four had students work on their blizzard bags this morning after completing the PARCC (Next Generation Assessments) so many students may already have turned in the assignments. Students / Families have until Friday, March 6th to turn in the materials.
    The district has the option for 2 additional blizzard bag days prior to attaching make up days at the end of the school year.
    With regards to progress reports or midterms, please note that parents are able to use the online system to view grades at any time. We are extending the official progress report deadline until next Friday to enable teachers to enter and update student grades.1

  • Spring Pictures, Valentine's Day, and Parent-Teacher Conferences

    Posted by Tammy Wagner at 2/17/2015
    I want to thank all the parents who stopped by for parent-teacher conferences last week. We want all students to be successful in their education and know that it takes all of us - students, parents, and families - working together to make that happen. After this month, there are just three (3) short months left in this educational year.
    Thursday students had their "Spring Pictures" taken. The weather certainly doesn't look like spring to me but the students looked great. We also celebrated Valentine's Day in the classrooms. Mrs. Groves was kept busy "phoning home" for forgotten drinks and snacks.
    This week we begin testing for the Next Generation Assessments (NGAs) from the Ohio Department of Education. We will be testing different grades over the course of the next three weeks.
    If you are inside by a computer during this chilly season, take a moment to get on the district's main page and click on the weblink/words at the very bottom (Carey tradition in transition) and then "new construction" link on the left to see the progress construction crews are making with the new school.
