Monday, February 24, 2014 Paulding County Progress-Weekly Reminder - 3



Despite the many disruptions to our regular
schedule, the 2013-2014 school year continues
movlng forward. We're now over half way
through the third grading period, meaning spring
ls rlghL around Lhe corner. cross your flngers.
However, many weeks still exist for winter
weather, so we encourage everyone to continue
exercising caution when traveling.
Speaking of weather (which has exhausted a
great deal of energy this school year), we have
missed a grand total of twelve school days at the
time of this writing. This total includes the day
missed for the state football tournament game,
which we made up on February 17. We also
made up a student day on February 26 (originally
scheduled as a teacher in-service day), leaving
our current make-up total at five days. We con-
tinue to hear state-level rumblings about a possi-
ble reprieve from making up all days this year.
However, until we know what our options are,
we will plan to be in school on May 29-30 and
June 2-4. ln addlLlon. wlLh Lhe graduaLlon
ceremony scheduled for Sunday, May 25, an
alternative plan for the senior class is a distinct
possibility at this time. With all that said, we will
make every effort to keep you well informed as
we trek our way through the final three-plus
months of this weather-plagued school year.
Tired of the winter blues? Come out and enjoy
the harmonious sounds of our high school band
and choir at the annual winter concert, scheduled
for March 2 at 2:30 in the main gymnasium. Our
performing arts department is a source of pride
in the community, and these young musicians
would love Lo have your supporL aL Lhls year's
March concert.
Turning to academic matters, the Ohio Gradua-
tion Tests and Ohio Academic Assessments are
quietly creeping up on us. Before long, we will be
ln Lhe LesLlng season. 1o lncrease our sLudenLs'
chances for success, our teachers continue to
introduce, develop, and assess their students on
the academic content standards as outlined by
the Ohio Department of Education. Two of our
primary goals for this year are to have a district-
wide Performance Index score over 100 points
and to have a vast improvement on our value-
added measurement. Parents can help make
these goals a reality by continuing to support our
Leachers wlLh Lhelr chlldren's schoolwork.
Remember, success at school is a team effort
between home and school. Everyone plays a vital
part in the education of our students.
In other academic news, the Straight A Grant
planning committee continues exploring options
for putting a computer in the hands of each
student in grades 7-12, possibly as early as the
beginning of the 2014-2015 school year. This is a
very exciting time for our students as we
continue moving them forward in the era of 21
st

Century education.
Time still exists for you to nominate a former
staff member for the Wayne Trace Staff Hall of
Fame Class of 2014. If you wish to obtain a nomi-
nation form, contact Ann Olwin in the central
office, and she will assist you. The Hall of Fame
event has become very popular in the commu-
nity, and you can play a vital role by nominating
one of more worthy former staff members.
Finally, please be aware of some further school
calendar announcements: 1.) Juniors and seniors
who have passed sections of the OGT will have a
two-hour delay each day the week of March 10-
14. Buses will run on time everyday that week,
and all students in grades PK-10 will be on their
regular schedule. If you have questions about
this matter, contact the JH/HS office. 2.) Spring
break is the week of March 24-28. These days
will not be used as make-up days, nor will Friday,
April 18. 3.) At this time school will operate on a
two-hour delay, district-wide, on Tuesday, May 6
for the purpose of a teacher in-service. Buses will
run two hours late that day.
As always, if you have questions or concerns
abouL your chlld's educaLlonal experlence aL
Wayne Trace, feel free to contact your building
principal or superintendent.
Go Raiders!


Laurie DeLong, Director of Student Services
We will soon start planning the 2014-2015
rosters for our Little Raiders Preschools. Parents
of typically developing preschoolers (who attend-
ed an Early Childhood Screening this school year)
will receive an initial letter the first two weeks of
April. Parents will be notified of whether or not
their child is enrolled by the first week of May.
Please note that the final county-wide Early
Childhood Screening is March 21 at the Paulding
St. Paul Lutheran Church from 11:00 a.m.-3:00
p.m. Appointments may be scheduled by calling
1-877-473-8166. If school is cancelled on that
day, the screening will be held April 4.
Our next program in the Coffee & Dessert
Parent/Professional Series will be Tuesday,
April 1, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. at the Wayne Trace
Jr./Sr. High School Lecture Hall. Linell Weinberg,
Executive Director of the Autism Society of
Northwest Ohio, will be presenting "What You
Don't Know Can Hurt You: The Hidden Curriculum
of Interacting with Law Enforcement and First
Responders". Individuals with developmental
disabilities, including autism, can have difficulty
communicating with police and other first
responders in incidents where there is a crisis in
the home or community and no adult is available
(i.e. accident, injury, fire, lost, etc.). This training
will help parents and school professionals
prepare the child for interaction and will include
videos, useful handouts, and other "freebies".
The training is free. If interested, Contact Cathy
Ruiz at 419-263-2512 (Wayne Trace Payne
Elementary), or by email at cruiz@wb.noacsc.org.
For additional information about preschool, Cof-
fee & Dessert Trainings, or any special education
topic or related services, please contact Laurie

2014-2015 Registration
Young 5's (Transitional Kindergarten) and
Traditional Kindergarten
Wayne Trace is excited to announce the possi-
bility of two Kindergarten age programs for the
2014-2015 school year. These options include a
possible Young 5's (Transitional Kindergarten)
and a regular Traditional Kindergarten.
Both programs are all day, every day programs
that provide students with a Kindergarten
curriculum based on the Ohio Department of
Education content standards. After each child's
Kindergarten screening, a team of academic pro-
fessionals will meet and gather their findings. A
recommendation will then be made to parents
regarding a placement for their child.
Students enrolled in Traditional Kindergarten
will need to be 5 years of age prior to August 1,
2014. Students enrolled in the Young 5's
(Transitional Kindergarten) must be 5 years of
age on or before September 30, 2014.
It is important to note that the creation of the
Young 5's (Transitional Kindergarten) classroom
will be contingent upon a minimum enrollment
as determined by Wayne Trace administration.
All students interested in enrolling in either
program are required to participate in the Kinder-
garten screening process. Screenings will take
place at WTPE on April 21 and 22 and at WTGH
on April 23 and 24.
To register your child for Kindergarten, please
call WT Payne Elementary at 419-263-2512 or WT
Grover Hill Elementary at 419-587-3414.

What a winter! Just a few more weeks until the
calendar arrival of spring! We trust that the
weather will acknowledge March 20th with sun-
shine and warmer temperatures!
WTPE had the pleasure of hosting the Realeyes
program on February 11. The Ohio Optometric
Association came to WTPE and presented a fun,
interactive program for grades K-5. The program
taught students about eye health and safety.
This free program was funded by the Ohio
Department of Health Save Our Sight program
through vehicle registration renewal.
We look forward to the month of March at
WTPE. Some of the great things that will be
taking place include the spring Scholastic Book
Fair the week of March 10, a concert by musician
John Flynn on March 14, the annual PTO Family
Game Night on March 14, and spring break the
week of March 24.
Our students are working very hard as they
enter the home stretch for the Ohio Achievement
Assessments. At this time, the date for those
assessments will be May 7, 8 and 9. If at all
possible, please do not plan vacations or doctor
appointments on those dates. Please feel free to

ments.

WT GROVER HILL ELEMENTARY
Kevin E. Wilson, Principal
This has been a very interesting winter with lots
of snow, cold weather, and the missed school
days. As we look at some of the changes to the
school calendar because of the winter weather.
At this time I want to make you aware of two
important changes. First, we have moved the
ending date for the third quarter back one week.
The third quarter was to end on March 14, but
due to the winter weather we have decided to
move the end of the third quarter back to Friday,
March 21. The second change to the calendar is
Ohio Achievement Assessment (OAA). The state
has decided to extend the testing window for the
OAA. With this change WTGH students will take
the OAA during the week of May 5. More
detailed information concerning the OAA will be
available in April.
Students at WTGH will celebrate Read Across
America again this year. Read Across America is
held ln con[uncLlon wlLh ur. Seuss' blrLhday.
Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Seuss Geisel
(3/2/04 - 9/24/91). He was an American writer,
poet, and cartoonist who is widely known for his
children's books written and illustrated as
Dr. Seuss. Many activities have been planned for
Read Across America week. Parents, if you would
like to get involved with Read Across America you
can go to the school web-site, click on math and
reading, then click on Dr. Seuss. On this site you
will find many different activities including games
and books. Enjoy some fun with your child and
reading.
Once again the American Red Cross will be at
W1CP for Lhe annual º8ed Cross 8lood urlve".
They will be at Grover Hill Elementary on Thurs-
day, March 6 from 1:30 until 5:30. I want to take
this time to thank the community in advance for
their support of the Red Cross Blood Drive.
Pave you ever dreamed of belng a ºCrlme
Scene SclenLlsL"? Cn Monday, March 31, Lhe
WTGH the students will get a chance to see an
assembly on Crime Scene Science. During this
assembly Lhe sLudenLs wlll solve º1he CreaL CaL

WT JR./SR. HIGH SCHOOL
Greg Leeth, Principal
March is the month that Ohio Graduation Test
(OGT) administration takes place all around Ohio.
Parents of sophomore students and parents of
junior and senior students who have not passed
one or more sections of the OGT are reminded
that testing will take place March 10-14. The
following week, March 17 through 21 will serve
as make up days for students who are absent the
previous week.
It is important that students arrive at school on
time and well-rested throughout the testing
week. All high school students must pass each of
the five sections of the test in order to graduate
from high school.
Due to the numerous calamity days we have
experienced, the Ohio Department of Education
has extended the testing window for the Ohio
Achievement Assessments given to seventh and
eighth grade students. We are taking advantage
of the option by testing the last week within that
window, so we can spend more time providing
students the instruction and learning opportuni-
ties needed to be prepared for those tests. We
will administer those tests on May 7, 8, and 9.
Junior high and high school are not just about
testing and we have many exciting events and
opportunities for students in March to prove this.
The Spanish Club, advised by Mrs. Jacqueline
Davis, will travel to Detroit on March 1 to visit the
Detroit Institute of Arts and to visit Mexicantown.
Also on March 1, the Ag Sales competition
team coached by Miss Lori Heiby and made up of
Chuckie Chastain, Austin Conlon, Matthew
Klopfenstein, and Arlen Stoller will compete at
the state competition in Columbus. The team
finished second in the district competition to
qualify.
Under the direction of Miss Sharon Spinner,
high school students will be performing the musi-
cal Bye Bye Birdie on March 6, 8, and 10. Perfor-
mances on March 6 and 8 will be at 7:30 p.m.,
while the performance on March 9 will begin at
2:30 p.m. All performances will be held at the
WT Payne Elementary Auditorium.
On March 15 the Student Council will host an
early spring dance (dare we think spring?), and
later in the month, March 19 and 20, the Market-
lng Club wlll Lravel Lo Chlcago Lo vlslL ºreal llfe"
environments where marketing and business
skills are practiced.
I would be remiss if I did not congratulate all of
the winter sport athletes on their tremendous
success this season. At the time of this writing,
Mrs. ChrlsLlna Slnn's varslLy cheerleadlng squad
had recently qualified for state competition at
the OASSA Regional qualifier held at Anthony
Wayne High School and is scheduled to compete
in Columbus on Sunday, March 2.
AddlLlonally, Coach Ceorge Clemens' varslLy
wrestling team finished as GMC runner up and
qualified eight wrestlers and one alternate for
Lhe dlsLrlcL LournamenL, Coach !lm Llnder's boys'
varsity basketball team won its second consecu-
tive GMC championship, and Coach Bethany
Pughes gulded her glrls' varslLy baskeLball Leam
to an impressive 13-9 season.
Congratulations to all of the coaches and play-
ers, including those student-athletes who partici-
pated at the junior high, freshmen, and junior
varsity level as well!
As always, feel free to contact us anytime if you
have quesLlons or concerns abouL your chlld's
education.

Wayne Trace Digital Academy Update
The Wayne Trace Digital Academy has seen
significant growth over the first half of the 2013-
2014 school year. The digital program provides
an educational opportunity for students who
prefer or need the flexibility that on-line instruc-
tion offers. Initially serving seven students, there
are currently twenty students enrolled part-time
or full-time in the program.
The majority of the students are coming into
school and working in the digital classroom while
a growing number have decided to work from
home. Each student has his or her own reasons
for choosing on-llne lnsLrucLlon. ºWe have a few
students with some health concerns in which
attendance is a complication. A few others like
to work at their own pace, and still others are
behind in school and can earn additional credits
by participating in the on-llne program," accord-
ing to Digital Academy Director Dave Alt. He
added that other schools that have implemented
an on-line component into their school district
have seen slmllar growLh. ºAddlng an on-line
feature gives our school district another instruc-
tional component in the ever changing educa-
Llonal landscape," sald AlL. Pe also added, ºCur
Superintendent, Mr. Steve Arnold believes, and I
concur, that the best educational model remains
the classroom with a teacher, but there are
students who need another option and our on-
llne program ls an excellenL complemenL." Addl-
tionally 22 students taking over 40 on-line college
classes throughout the day also report to the
digital classroom.

We recently had a new metal roof installed
on our home by Miller’s Metal Roofing.
We were very satisfied with the outcome of
our roofing project. They did an excellent job,
were very professional, and completed the
project in a timely manner as promised.
Our new roof looks wonderful, and we would
recommend Miller’s to anyone looking to
install a new metal roof.
