5TH GRADERS IMPRESS TOWNSHIP TRUSTEES WITH PARK DESIGNS

DSC_6140-BrightenedFifth grade math teacher Mr. Mike Schaffer partnered with the Olmsted Township Trustees last week to provide his students the opportunity to have their “Park Projects” reviewed by local elected officials.  Each spring, students in Mr. Schaffer’s class apply their math skills to design a park.  Specifications for the park are provided to the students and their design must be drawn to scale and include certain items such as a playground, picnic pavilion, volleyball court, swimming pool, basketball courts, restrooms and a parking lot. In addition to area and perimeter calculations, students must also take into account budget calculations.

Olmsted Township Trustees, Mrs. Sherri Lippus and Mr. Scott Ross, volunteered their time to review and select top park designs in various categories.  Mrs. Lippus and Mr. Scott were so impressed with the students’ work, they plan to showcase the parks at their June Township Trustees Meeting and recognize the budding young green space designers!  Kudos to all of Mr. Schaffer’s 5th grade students for their excellent work!  And thank you to the Olmsted Township Trustees for their participation!

Together, the partners helped residents in northeast Ohio safely dispose of over 18,0000 pounds of outdated or unwanted prescription medications.  According to the DEA Cleveland Resident Office Agent in Charge Gene Corley, “The exact poundage was 18,124 pounds, and covered the following counties:  Ashland, Ashtabula, Crawford, Cuyahoga, Geauga, Holmes, Huron, Lorain, Marion, Medina, Richland, Seneca, Stark, Summit, Wayne and Wyandot.”

drugsIf area residents missed the collection and would like to dispose of unwanted medicines, the Olmsted Township Police Department has a permanent drop box.  Many communities have installed permanent drop boxes in local police stations.  In Cuyahoga County, visit http://sheriff.cuyahogacounty.us/en-US/RxDrugDropBoxProgram.aspx for a list of locations; or all other counties, visit http://rxdrugdropbox.org/ .

Many thanks to the Olmsted Falls Police Department and our High school volunteers  Emily and Jake Olszewski  and Natalie Ferrini for making this a successful event.

The seventh grade students have spent some time understanding and writing various types of poems, and some of the poems were written specifically about their second grade buddy! The second grade students provided their buddy with some information about themselves in order to help make the poetry writing easier. Lessons that the second graders learned were how to use adjectives, nouns, verbs, and  onomatopoeia’s to make your writing more interesting.  What a great partnership for writing and fun!  For more photos, please click here.

SAFETY TOWN 2013 SPONSORED BY THE OLMSTED EARLY CHILDHOOD PTA

safety town logo croppedDo you have a child starting Kindergarten in the fall?  If so, Safety Town is a child accident prevention program for incoming kindergarteners.  It is a program that introduces safety awareness and preventative procedures to the children.  Children practice real life situations before being confronted with situations on their own.  Safety Town is the foundation of safety education.

Safety Town in Olmsted Falls and Olmsted Township is organized through the Olmsted Early Childhood PTA, a non-profit organization consisting of volunteers who seek to unite home, school and the Olmsted community in promoting education, health and safety of children, youth and families.  Children who attend will practice safety “out on the town” in a miniaturized city layout designed to teach children safety near roads, railroad crossings, while on their bikes or walking in their neighborhood.  Videos, songs and lessons with visits from local Police, Fire and Bus Departments as well as field trips to Police and Fire Departments, all help your child enjoy and understand what he or she is learning.  Please click here to find out more and to register.
