Kindergarten 2014-2015
Parent Information Night will be held at 7 p.m. March 4 at Timmons Elementary School for children entering kindergarten in August. Registration packets must be picked up at this time. Children must be 5 years old on or before Sept. 30, 2014.
One School, One Book Kickoff
Timmons Elementary School kicked off its annual One School, One Book program with an assembly and presentation of a sculpture by local woodcarvers Jim Stadtlander and Diane Hatro. The sculpture depicts the characters in this year’s book selection, “Poppy by Avi,” that will be read by families over the next month.
Principal Katie Poe passed out a copy of the book to each student at Timmons. The books were a gift from the PTO.
Bomberettes Take 1st Place
The Kenston High School Bomberette Dance Team earned first place in the pom and kick routine and Best Showmanship at the regional competition held by Champion Cheer Central at Eastlake North High School. The team also earned the highest score of any team competing in the morning session.
The girls qualified for nationals and earned a bid to the U.S. finals in Indianapolis.
The team is comprised of captains Leah Grcevich, Katie Gross and Nicolette Severino; and members Danielle Apple, Macie Biermann, Jenna Blackburn, Breanna Bodak, Amelia Chantler, Victoria Clawson, Mira Grcevich, Gabrielle Gross, Hayley Harris, Lauren Parker, Maria Severino, Monaya Stanley, Rylie Terrion, Taylor Tucholski, LaJoy Williams and Graycen Wood. Mrs. Kathy Werner is the coach.
Girls Rock
Blazing the Trail, mothers and daughters celebrated National Girls and Women in Sports Day on Feb. 5. The annual celebration brings together coaches, high school and college athletes and local fitness professionals to demonstrate hands-on fitness activities and celebrate women in sports.
Play Blue Future Chefs Cook-off
Twenty-four students participated in the Play Blue Future Chefs Cooking Contest. Six finalists will compete in the “sandwich cook off.”
In the grade 3-5 category, finalists are: Francesca Burke with “Fiesta Tortilla Wrap,” Jenna Morton with “Jenna’s Busy Burrito” and Samantha Stefancin with “Cucumber Finger Sandwiches.”
Finalists in grades kindergarten through second are: Benjamin Fink with “Rockin Guac Turkey Wrap,” Nicholas Gambatesa with “Roasted Chicken Salad Tortilla Roll Up” and Julian Johnson with “Chicken ‘n Waffles.”
Blizzard Bags, Delayed Starts
With the unusually severe weather in northeastern Ohio, Kenston has used all its allowable calamity days. In order to make up lessons and continue with instruction, Kenston has filed and been approved by the Ohio Department of Education to use Blizzard Bags.
This tool will be in effect for any future calamity days this year. It allows students to get an assignment online.
For Timmons and KIS students, the Blizzard Bags will be posted on the building website. High school and middle school students will need to visit their teachers’ individual web pages.
The Blizzard Bag program allows students to complete assignments without extending classes into the summer.
The other method for coping with inclement weather will be a delayed start. A one or two hour delay will only be used if the weather forecast indicates that the current weather conditions will improve soon after school opens and it is safe to transport students.
With a delayed start, dismissal will remain at the regular time. Morning kindergarten will be canceled.
