What do you do when it’s inside recess on a rainy day? Why you work as a team on your Color Run banner, of course! Park students can’t wait to break through the banner when they finish their fundraising run!

Start With Hello

During the week of September 24th – 28th, 2018, Chardon Schools participated in the national initiative, Start With Hello Week, to teach students the skills they need to create a culture of inclusion and connectedness, and encourage them to reach out to and include those who may be dealing with chronic social isolation. The annual Start With Hello Week raises awareness about social isolation and educates students and the community on how to prevent it through various age-appropriate students activities, contests and recognitions. Chardon’s Start With Hello week made a lasting impact on students and adults alike.

Students in Leigh Ann Ferguson’s class at Munson Elementary enjoyed a fun surprise when they discovered that the classroom’s Mystery Reader for the day was non other than Munson principal, Mat Prezioso!

National Merit Recognition

Congratulations to Chardon High School seniors Isabelle LeMaster for being recognized as a Semi-Finalist, and Heather Humbert and Nicholas Gehrke for being recognized as Commended Students for the National Merit Scholarship Program. Semi-Finalists are chosen from the highest scoring students on the Preliminary SAT and are eligible for the Finalist award in February 2019. Isabelle joins the less than one percent of high school seniors who receive this honor. Although Commended Students will not continue in the 2019 competition for National Merit Scholarship awards, Heather and Nicholas placed among the top 50,000 scorers of more than 1.6 million students who entered the competition. Again, congrats to all three student scholars and best of luck to Isabelle in the Finalist Competition!

“Stone Age” Kindergarteners in Stephanie Clements’ Art class at Park School were busy drawing hands, animals, lines and shapes on the “classroom cave” improvised under their desks.

Parent/Teacher Conferences

We know that young students and teens do better in school when parents get involved. Attending parent–teacher conferences is one of the easiest ways to be involved and help your child succeed. A parent–teacher conference is a great opportunity to discuss your child’s progress, share your child’s strengths and needs, and work with the teacher to help your child do well in school. Keep in mind that you and your child’s teacher have the same goal: To help your child succeed in school. The next date for P/T conferences is November 14th. Check with your child’s school to register.
