May Announcements

5th Grade Parent Night at White Oak Middle School/Pleasant Run Middle School is May 8 from 6:30-7:30


Finances 101 games is coming to Colerain High School on Tuesday, May 9th.  

We NEED volunteers!!!  

Finances 101 is a fun and interactive way for high school students to learn the Game of Life.  During the event, the students will travel through a life-sized game board in which they'll be assigned a career and a salary, and will roll the dice to determine the number of children they'll have.  Along the way, they will have to figure out how they will pay for rent, food, insurance, car payments, and for life's little surprises.  The game emphasizes how earnings impact buying decisions, setting a budget, what it really costs to run a household, and how to spend within one's means.  


Volunteers will staff a station at the game.  No math skills are needed; just adults who have learned to navigate through life!   Training will be provided prior to the start of the game. Chairs will be available, so volunteers may be seated during the game.  


Date: Tuesday, May 9th  

Times:  Full Day: 7:15 am-3:00 pm or Morning Session: 7:15-11:30 am or Afternoon Session: 11:00-3:00 pm  

Place:  Colerain High School 8801 Cheviot Rd. Cincinnati, OH 45251

All Day Kindergarten Pilot Program

The Northwest Local School District is excited to announce that an all-day kindergarten pilot will be put in place in three schools beginning in the 2017-18 school year. 


One classroom of 24 students at each of the three schools (Monfort Heights, Taylor and Welch) will be designated for all-day kindergarten.  The program will be offered at no cost to parents.  Students will be selected based on a lottery held on May 26, 2017.  Students from the three identified schools must be fully registered by 4:00 p.m. on May 25, 2017 in order to participate in the lottery. 


The district carefully examined enrollment numbers and space available in order to select pilot schools. The pilot will allow the district to examine schedules, teaching methods and curriculum needs related to all-day kindergarten as we prepare for full implementation of all-day kindergarten for the 2018-19 school year. 


Kindergarten registration begins on March 1st.  Families who are interested in the pilot program are encouraged to register early. 


More transparency with Northwest Local School District Nutrition Menus

Beginning in April, parents and students will be pleasantly surprised when they look at lunch menus in Northwest Local School District. The Food Service Department has just launched an interactive menu tool that provides greater insight and information about their menus.

The website http://nwlsd.nutrislice.com, allows parents and students to see pictures, descriptions, nutrition information, and carb counts for each day’s menu.  The innovative and interactive site and mobile app make our school menus more convenient and informative than ever before!

“Our nutrition program has made some incredible improvements to our menu.” said Lisa Robison, Supervisor of Food Services. “This tool allows us to show our customers how we incorporate whole grains, fruits & vegetables, and low sodium favorites in our menus.”


NWLSD Digital School Lunch Menu

Food services will be rolling out a new digital menu program this month. This program has focused content, interactive menus with nutritionals, and offers monthly parent newsletters.  It will include carb counts and allergens on our products.  The interactive menu lets you sort by products without certain allergens to assist in figuring out what a child can safely eat.  It also is available in an app for your phone so it can be easily accessed on the go.

Poole Road Sewer Lateral Project

The Metropolitan Sewer District of Greater Cincinnati (MSD) will construct a 6-inch sanitary sewer lateral at 3759 Poole Road in Colerain Township.  Work is anticipated to start this week, with completion in August 2017.  We anticipate construction activity will occur generally between 7:00am and 5:30pm Monday through Friday.  Some weekend work may be needed.

In addition to traffic inconveniences, typical construction-related disturbances such as noise, dirt and vibrations should be expected throughout the construction period.

 We apologize for any inconveniences and will work diligently to minimize disruptions.
