State Environmental Award

Chardon High School chemistry teacher Marilyn Rohr has been named the 2014 Outstanding Environmental Educator Award in the Field of Formal Education from the Environmental Education Council of Ohio (EECO).

The Geauga Soil and Water Conservation District nominated Marilyn for her exemplary efforts and commitment to the Ohio Soil and Water Conservation District’s Envirothon program. She was honored at the EECO Awards Banquet on March 29 at Deer Creek State Park Lodge in Mt. Sterling, Ohio.

Marilyn teaches 11th and 12th-grade chemistry and has been involved with the Envirothon program for 17 years. Envirothon is a hands-on environmental problem-solving competition for high school-aged students.

With Marilyn’s steady guidance Chardon’s Envirothon program has become a dominating force in the state. Marilyn’s ability to produce winning teams at Envirothon competitions has made her a living legacy. Through hard work, determination, and leadership, she has led Chardon High School Envirothon teams to the North American Envirothon seven times in the past eight years.

@HeaderML:Immunization Requirements

For Seventh-Graders

Attention sixth-grade parents: By the start of next school year, children are required to have a booster shot in the diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis series. Parents must provide the school with written verification of Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, acelluar pertussis, adult and adolescent formulation) vaccination from a healthcare provider. Failure to do so will result in exclusion from school until the requirement is met.

This requirement is a state law. Please contact the child’s physician now to see if he or she has already had this shot or to make arrangements to receive it.

The school district has already begun accepting written verification of this vaccination for next year. This vaccination can be obtained through the Geauga County General Health District. Contact them at 440-279-1950 or see Lori Strickland, Chardon Middle School nurse, for a clinic schedule.

CANstruction Jr.

Chardon students Sam Snyder, Rebecca Fullerman, Natalie Fullerman and Katie Snyder recently participated in CANstruction Jr at Beachwood Mall. CANstruction combines the competitive spirit of a design/build competition with a unique way to help feed the hungry.

The students had to collect 500 cans to participate, with friends and family from Munson Elementary School and Girl Scout troops 563 and 1166 all helping them to reach their goal.

The theme for the event was “Route 66.” The Chardon team built a cactus, which earned them the “Best Use of Labels” award.

At the close of the exhibition, cans of food used in the structures were donated to the Cleveland Food Bank.
