Parent Update – April 18, 2012

April 18, 2012 Comments off

FIRST GRADERS KICK OFF APRIL BOARD MEETING; HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS HONORED

First grade students helped members of the Olmsted Falls Board of Education start their monthly meeting last week with a patriotic song, which also featured sign language.  The young Bulldogs then led Board members and guests in the Pledge of Allegiance.  Kudos to the students and their teachers for an outstanding job on this special performance!  Children and their parents were invited to stay as some of our older Bulldogs from OFHS were honored for their achievements.

Congratulations to the following Olmsted Falls High School students who were honored by the Board of Education last week for earning the title of Scholar Athlete or First Team:  Nick Asadorian, Alex Bevilacqua, Olivia Henton, Jared Kurz, Bridget Liddy, Alita Petras, Erica Reiser, and Matthew Wachowiak.  Congratulations also to Sarah Fissel whose artwork was selected as “Top 25” in the 2012 Ohio Governor’s Youth Art Exhibition and received the Governor’s Award of Excellence – see detailed story in this week’s blog!

A cake and punch reception followed for all.  Congratulations again to these great students – of all ages!

BOARD OF EDUCATION AUTHORIZES DISTRICT TO PURSUE BIDS FOR FIRST PHASE OF P.I. PROJECTS

At its regularly scheduled monthly meeting last Thursday, April 12th, the Olmsted Falls Board of Education approved the recommendations of Superintendent Dr. Todd Hoadley to authorize the Olmsted Falls School District to advertise and receive bids for six permanent improvement projects. 

These projects are being made possible by the passage of the critical 2.8 Mill Permanent Improvement (P.I.) Levy this past November.  The six projects approved by the Board of Education last week include:

·         Renovations to the Olmsted Falls High School auditorium

·         Roof repair work at Olmsted Falls High School and Falls-Lenox Primary School

·         Replacement of boilers at Olmsted Falls High School

·         Replacement of existing entrance doors North, East and West entrances to Olmsted Falls High School

·         Installation of wireless network at Olmsted Falls High School as well as Falls-Lenox Primary School and ECC

·         District driveway/parking lot repair work

The District now looks forward to getting the bid process underway in an effort to finalize details and begin projects in early summer.  Over the summer months, these much-needed repairs and renovations will get underway at the aging Olmsted Falls High School building.  Resources are also able to be spread to other buildings in the District.  Olmsted Falls School District will begin the 2012-2013 school year with a completely wireless network in all five school buildings. 

These next six projects come on the heels of much-needed cement work, which was completed over the recent spring break recess  – also thanks to the new P.I. funds.  (See April 4th blog post for details.)

The District continues to extend sincere thanks and appreciation to voters!  Tangible evidence of these P.I. funds is well on the way.  Any parents or residents with questions about the P.I. funds and/or the projects being planned are encouraged to contact the Board office at 427-6000.

OFHS ART STUDENT AND TEACHER HONORED AT STATE LEVEL

OFHS student Sarah Fissel’s amazing book sculpture earned high honors this past weekend as it was on display in Columbus, OH, as part of the Governor’s Youth Art Exhibition. 

 Sarah’s creative work made the “Top 25” in this very prestigious show and she received the Governor’s Award of Excellence for her talent. 

More than 13,000 entries were submitted from across the state this year! 

OFHS art teacher Mrs. Amber West and art student Sarah Fissel celebrate state recognition.

Congratulations to Sarah on this outstanding achievement!  Sarah was also honored for this great accomplishment at last week’s Board of Education meeting (see above). 

Sarah’s art teacher, Mrs. Amber West, is especially proud as well.  Not only is she Sarah’s current art teacher at OFHS, but Mrs. West also had Sarah as a student in grades K to 3! 

Mrs. West was also honored during the ceremony in Columbus last weekend, receiving the “Top 25 Art Teacher Award.” 

Kudos to both Sarah Fissel and Mrs. Amber West on this well-deserved recognition!

LOCAL JUDGE SHARES GOVERNMENT LESSON WITH 5TH GRADERS

Parma Municipal Court Judge Kenneth R. Spanagel visited Olmsted Falls Intermediate School last Friday, making presentations to all 5th grade classes about government and the legal system.  This educational event served as a supplement to the 5th grade social studies curriculum.  The Honorable Judge Spanagel has been a judge in Parma for more than 25 years, and his father was a judge before him.  Judge Spanagel did his undergraduate work at Northwestern; completed Law School at Case Western; and served as a lawyer for 12 years prior to becoming a judge.  He is the grand-uncle of an Olmsted Falls Intermediate School student in Mr. Judson’s class. 

In addition to the large group presentations to all 5th graders, a small number of students also got the opportunity to have lunch with Judge Spanagel.  During lunch, each student had the opportunity to ask the judge a question about his work. 

Thank you to Judge Spanagel for this special visit; and to Mr. Judson for coordinating this unique learning experience for all 5th grade students.

Parent Update – April 11, 2012

April 11, 2012 Comments off

OFMS STUDENTS CATCH “THE HUNGER GAMES” FEVER – MORE THAN 380 STUDENTS & PARENTS ATTEND PRIVATE OPENING DAY SCREENING!

It has been hard to escape the buzz over the newly released movie, “The Hunger Games,” which is based on the book trilogy of the same name by television writer and novelist Suzanne Collins.  At Olmsted Falls Middle School, excitement over the new movie was at an all-time high among students who had avidly read the series of books over the course of the year.  Middle School teacher Mrs. Robyn Tenerowicz could not let all that great excitement and energy go to waste.

Mrs. Tenerowicz coordinated with Regal Cinemas corporate headquarters in Denver, Colorado, to arrange for a special screening exclusively for Bulldogs on Friday, March 23rd – the date of the movie’s official release to the public.  Reserving two full theaters with her own credit card, Mrs. Tenerowicz was confident that she’d easily pack the house with excited students and parents!  And she was right!

More than 380 students and parents attended the private screenings at the Regal Cinemas in Middleburg Heights!  Students and staff filled five buses after school the Friday before spring break for the journey down Bagley Road to the theaters!  Waiting for them in the parking lot were approximately 60 parents, who were also excited to attend the private screening with their children.  One parent remarked that it had been a long time since her child wanted to go to the movies together – and that this special screening event was building connections within families and among the community!

Mrs. Tenerowicz dressed as a character from the movie for the event!

This unique field trip – including transportation costs – was paid for entirely by those who attended!

Kudos again to Mrs. Tenerowicz for making this creative connection available for students and families!  Her efforts have brought the pages of a book to life for students (and parents), and helped foster a life-long love of reading!

Kudos to our students for being so engaged in and excited by the books you are reading!

Keep turning those pages Bulldogs!

BULLDOG ALUMNI SPEAKS AT OFMS

 
 
The 8th Grade Blue Team had former student Stewart Hodges speak to them during STAR classes during the month of March, about his challenges as a person with special needs.  Stewart’s message tied in very tightly with the Rachel’s Challenge mission to “inspire, equip and empower every person to create a permanent positive culture” in the school and community setting.
 
 
OFMS STUDENT COMPETES AT STATE LEVEL
 
 
 
8th Grader Matt Harris competed at the 24th annual state-wide geography bee at The Ohio State University – Mansfield campus on Friday, March 30th.   Harris competed against one-hundred-four other students from grades four through eight.  Although he did not proceed to the final round, Matt represented Olmsted Falls very proudly!  Congratulations Matt!
 
HONORABLE SPEAKERS PREPARE OFMS 8th GRADERS FOR WASHINGTON D.C. TRIP

Pictured from left to right: Mrs. Cibulskas, Mr. Bristow, Mrs. Gross, and Mr. Smith

To prepare the OFMS eighth graders for the adventures in Washington D.C., lessons were arranged to provide the students with knowledge and understanding of the trip that they were about to endeavor.  Part of the day involved speaker presentations from a WWII veteran, Mr. Bristow and Vietnam veteran, Mr. Smith.  Mr. Bristow is a retired educator from the Fairview Park City Schools who now resides in Brunswick.  He earned a Bronze Star for his service and spoke to the students about his experiences in Germany.  Mr. Smith is a paraprofessional at OFMS and is a familiar face to the students.  Although, students may know him by passing him in the hallway, they were able to gain a prospective of his life in the military fighting for our country at Vietnam.  Both speakers focused their presentations about their experiences and what the memorials at Washington D.C. means for the people and the veterans that visit them.

Don’t miss next week’s blog for a recap of the OFMS Washington D.C. trip – including photo gallery!

NO SCHOOL THIS FRIDAY AND MONDAY

REMINDER:  Olmsted Falls School District will be CLOSED this Friday, April 6th and Monday, April 9th for the Easter holiday weekend.  School will resume on Tuesday, April 10th.

OFMS DESIGN SQUAD TEAM DOES IT AGAIN!

Congratulations to the Olmsted Falls Middle School Design Squad Team!

The team of Morgan Ashton, Maggie Backus, Stephen Miller, and Alex Kho spent the first Saturday of spring break competing in creative problem solving and engineering challenges in WVIZ’s Design Squad challenge. Their excellent teamwork and problem solving skills once again led the team to beat out schools from all over the Cleveland area.

The team took first place in this tough engineering competition for the second consecutive year!  OFMS gifted teacher Mrs. Anne Miskimins serves as advisor for the OFMS Design Squad Team.

P.I. FUNDS AT WORK OVER SPRING BREAK:  LOCAL VENDOR COMPLETES CONCRETE WORK AT FALLS-LENOX, MIDDLE SCHOOL AND HIGH SCHOOL

Students at Falls-Lenox were greeted by a safer, wider walkway Monday thanks to funding from the recently passed P.I. Levy.

Students at Falls-Lenox Primary School returned to wider, safer sidewalks this week following the completion of the first project made possible by funds generated from the recently passed Permanent Improvement Levy.  Martin Concrete Construction Company, located here in Olmsted Falls, was hired to complete much-needed concrete work at Falls-Lenox Primary School as well as at Olmsted Falls Middle and High Schools.

The team from Martin Concrete Construction Company worked on the Falls-Lenox sidewalk expansion project over spring break.

At Falls-Lenox, Martin Concrete Construction Company worked over the spring break recess to widen the main sidewalk that runs along the front of the school.  This wider walkway will help ease congestion on this critical stretch sidewalk, which serves as the primary hub for loading and unloading of buses each school day.  Martin Concrete also completed work along the sidewalk in front of Olmsted Falls Middle School, and between the baseball diamonds located at the east end of Olmsted Falls High School.

Martin Concrete Construction owner Al Martin overseeing the concrete pour in front of OFMS - another P.I. project completed over spring break.

Levy was passed in November 2011, and began generating revenue for the District in January of 2012.  Because the passage of this levy was timed to correspond with a scheduled drop off in millage of the same amount, residents in the Olmsted Falls School District will not see any increase in their property taxes.

The benefits of passing this critical P.I. levy will be evident in the months and years to come as the District will now have the funds available to address a number of pressing building and facility needs.  By law, P.I. funds can ONLY be used for capital improvement projects with a shelf life of five years or more.  While a significant portion of these new P.I. funds will be dedicated to building renovations and facility system upgrades at the aging Olmsted Falls High School, there will also be funds available for other needed projects throughout the District – such as the sidewalk expansion at Falls-Lenox.

Olmsted Falls School District wishes to again extend our sincerest thanks to the Olmsted community for providing us with these critical funds to help maintain and protect one of its biggest investments – our school facilities.

Please watch for regular P.I. project updates here on the District’s weekly blog as well as in the School Report, which is mailed to all District residents.  Anyone with questions about any of the upcoming P.I. projects is encouraged to contact the Board of Education Office at 427-6000.
