HPAC Students Participate in Scholar's Day

Many students engaged in Brown Middle School and Ravenna High School after-school programs, participated in Health Professions Affinity Community (HPAC) activities. These activities for 2014‐2015 culminated with the 4th annual Scholar’s Day event held at NEOMED on Sunday, April 26, 2015. Scholar's Day is a chance for all of the HPAC students to share their projects with a poster session and oral presentations from the 2014‐2015 academic year.

United Way Reading Role Models

Recently, on May 5th, United Way Reading Role Models visited West Park Elementary to read to the kindergartners. Ten volunteers came to read to each kindergarten classroom. According to United Way of Portage County's website, reading proficiency by the third grade is an essential step toward increasing the number of children who succeed academically and do well in life and career. United Way recruits volunteers to be reading role models who can share the love and importance of reading to local students. The Ravenna School District wishes to thank all of the volunteers for their time spent with our students!

Spotlight on West Park Elementary School

West Park Elementary School students strive to follow the K-Way everyday by being Respectful, Responsible and by Controlling Their Actions. Teachers nominate students who are setting a good example by listening, following directions, raising their hand, cleaning up and helping others. When students are seen demonstrating positive behavior and following the three K-Way rules, they receive a K-Way ticket. This ticket may be taken home and students tell their parents how they earned it. Parents are encouraged to set up a reward system at home for their student.
