PRE Focusing on Literacy

PRE Families,
The students and teachers have been focusing on literacy.  We are excited to start our Winter MAP testing this week and show you how much we have learned this year so far!  Each morning we start our day with a poem.  The students love the funny poems the most but we also expose them to poems about culture, weather, art, and animals.  This is something you can ask your students about each evening.  Poetry is a wonderful way to introduce a variety of vocabulary to students of all ages.

We thought you would enjoy the following website:  http://www.daybydayoh.org/january/january-13

This page has literacy activities for every day of the month for the entire year.  There are book suggestions, videos, activities, and songs that go along with a monthly theme.  If you are looking for something for your beginner or struggling reader to access at home this would be a great place to start!

Happy reading!
The PRE Principals

EdChoice Voucher Program

EdChoice Voucher Program

This year, Northwest Local School District had six schools that were identified for the EdChoice Voucher Program due to recent legislative changes in House Bill 166. Unfortunately, our district was not alone. Nearly 70% of school districts across the State of Ohio were also identified, resulting in a 384% increase of eligible schools since 2018. For many schools, the financial impact will be devastating.  More +
