EIGHT BULLDOGS HONORED WITH EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION AWARDS

2015 Peer Achievement AwardsA total of eight Bulldogs – four Olmsted Falls students and four Olmsted Falls staff members – were honored earlier this month at the Annual Excellence in Education Program held in Independence, OH.  This annual awards program, which the Ohio Department of Education/State Support Team and the Educational Service Center of Cuyahoga County partners to sponsor, acknowledges the outstanding achievements of students with disabilities, as well as the contributions of peers and educators.  Nominations are submitted each spring by individuals at the school buildings.

It is with great pride that Olmsted Falls School District extends congratulations to the following Bulldogs who were received these prestigious awards this year:

Students: Sophia Krall, Falls-Lenox; Mia Marsico, OFMS; Carly Neely, OFHS and Triston Thompson, OFHS.

Staff Members: Martha Candow, Falls-Lenox; Franca DeMuth, Falls-Lenox; Kelly Fissel, Early Childhood Center and Mike Yurmanovich, OFHS.

Six Middle School students were honored for their achievements in Northwestern University’s Annual Midwest Academic Talent Search competition at last week’s Board of Education meeting.  The Midwest Academic Talent Search enables students to participate in ACT and/or SAT tests that are typically taken by college-bound juniors and seniors in high school. Middle school students who achieve a score of 21 or above on the ACT and/or a score of 980 or above on the SAT are recognized as top performers.

OFMS students recognized in this year’s national competition are: Lauren Gumeny, Eric Hanna, Sofie Iwamasa, Lauren Kane, Lillian Beatty and Megan Stohmenger.

Congratulations to each of these students and to their families!

We also want to recognize our teachers who worked with these exceptional students along their path to this point.  It is the great education provided at each level, coupled with support in the home, that prepared these students for this achievement and that will continue to help them thrive in the future. Congratulations, again!

Essays written by three OFMS students were among the winners in this year’s Elks Americanism Essay Contest.  The theme of this year’s contest was: “What The Pledge of Allegiance Means To Me.”  Last fall, more than 433 students submitted essay entries locally to Elks Lodge #1815 based in Berea!

Congratulations to Katrina Bongiovanni and Katie Cutts, who were local winners in the 7/8th grade division; and to Caroline Gardner, whose essay went on to win at the district level in the 5/6th grade division.  To read a copy of Caroline’s essay, please click HERE.

Each winner was invited – along with their families – to attend the annual Youth Appreciation Dinner at the Berea Elks Lodge earlier this month.  Additionally, the Olmsted Falls Board of Education acknowledged these students’ award-winning essays at the May Board of Education meeting.

 

BE A MYTH BUSTER:  KNOW THE FACTS!

Fact CheckMYTH:  Olmsted Falls School District is now requiring students to identify specific career pathways at very young ages.  The District has implemented a program that forces students to make choices about future careers as early as the elementary school level.  At OFHS, students are required to choose a career path before graduation.

 FACT:  Olmsted Falls School District has placed a priority on exposing students to the idea that there are many careers and opportunities available to them in the world beyond Olmsted Falls Schools, and that they have choices when it comes to future career pathways.  Olmsted Falls School District has existing and expanding programs that allow students to research and gain exposure to careers that may be of interest to them.  Programs and exploration vary by grade level, and opportunities increase as students reach the middle and high school levels.  Career Day events featuring parent and local community volunteers are one example of such exposure at the elementary levels.  As students progress into the middle and high school level, more sophisticated guidance and exploration is available.  Interest surveys and identification of academic strengths allow students to learn about and explore different directions that may be of interest to them as they prepare for the world beyond Olmsted Falls Schools.

While none of this is really new, Olmsted Falls School District has started to be more targeted in recognizing that students could be exposed to many more connections and opportunities to their particular set of career interests, and dedicating resources toward those efforts.  To meet the goal of better preparing our students for their futures, a College & Career Counselor was put in place at Olmsted Falls High School this year.  This position has already had a significant impact on resources available for our high school students, and will expand to more actively engage at the middle school level next school year.

About Myth Busters:  With continuing and significant changes underway in public education – from the implementation of the Common Core State Standards to the launch of new required state assessments – it is important that parents have the facts.  Knowing the real facts can help Bulldog parents spot a myth when they hear one – and there are currently a number of myths out there.

Olmsted Falls School District will feature periodic “Myth Busters” on our Weekly Blog Post.  We hope parents will find this new feature informative and, as always, we encourage you to contact your child’s school building or the Board of Education office with any questions.

Mareena Gentry is flanked by her grandparents on the left and her parents on the right.

The Contributors Club is an honorary organization that the Olmsted Falls Kiwanis Club established. Working in conjunction with OFHS administration, the Boys & Girls Committee of Kiwanis developed the club as a means of recognizing outstanding contributions made by students to school, community or humanity. These contributions should come in the form of time or work in a volunteer setting in either the school or community, but should focus on efforts outside the classroom. Any student in grades 9-12 is eligible to be considered for this honor and nominations are made by the faculty and staff of the high school.

Last week, Olmsted Falls Kiwanis Club recognized senior Bulldog Mareena Gentry who has been in Key Club for four years and this past year organized and administrated a project called Dawg Pound. It is a project in which Key Club sold snacks after school to students waiting for buses or engaging in after-school activities.The $1,500 proceeds went to the Eliminate Project, the worldwide Kiwanis International project to eliminate maternal/neonatal tetanus. Mareena personally volunteered more than 70 hours during this school year to Key Club. Jenelle Hughes, co-advisor of Key Club, nominated Mareena.

cultural day 5Students from Teachers Harb/Atkins/Schafer 5th Grade Team celebrated “Cultural Day” May 18th in great style. Throughout May, they studied immigration, naturalization and immigrants’ reasons for coming to the United States. They explored their families’ ancestry and shared it with their class. The 85 students represented more than 30 countries!cultural day 12

Mrs. Harb created a slide show for the finale celebration that included maps, pictures of the country’s landscape, clothing, food and money of every country that students represented. This allowed students and their families to see parts of their ancestors’ countries and culture.

Children either made a food or provided information for their classes and their guests, which they shared on Cultural Day. They did an amazing job! Many students spoke about the experience of spending an afternoon with their grandparents, learning some history and traditions.

About 200 guests attended the celebration. Many grandparents attended, happy to provide their wisdom to the children, along with stories of immigration.  Students walked away with a greater understanding and respect for different cultures. To view a photo gallery of the event, HERE.
