From the Principal....
Welcome to the 2010-2011 school year! I'd like to introduce many staffing changes for the current school year. In first grade we’d like to welcome Ms. Danielle Surace, third grade Ms. Elizabeth Wineland and Mrs. Karla Gyurke. In fourth grade we are welcoming Mrs. Lisa Kessler and in fifth grade we have three new additions: Mrs. Jill Gargac, Mrs. Jill Deal and Mr. Brent Combs. We also have a new multiple disabled unit that Mrs. Julie Kaser will be running and a new Physical Education teacher, Mrs. Rossler. We look forward to working with all of our new staff as we continue to move through the school year. I know they will all make wonderful additions to an already great staff!
Thank you to all parents who attended our pre-registration/picture day. It is great to have all of the paperwork taken care of before students attend on the first day. This year we had at least 80% of our student population pre-register. Way to go!
I hope that you have had an opportunity to review our school handbook. Please take note of the following:
Drop – Off / Pick – Up Procedures:
*Please attempt to limit arrival and departure schedule changes as much as possible.
When dropping off a child in the morning it is very important that you pull around the circle, up to the farthest orange cone, so that we can drop-off at least four carloads at a time. This will keep the traffic moving quickly. Please make sure when dropping off that all children exit your car closest to the curb. Students can be dropped off between 9:00-9:10 to insure that they are not tardy. The tardy bell rings at 9:15. If your children plan on eating breakfast, please plan on dropping off at 9:00. End of the day parent pick-up is located in the cafeteria. Students must be signed out and picked up at 3:30. Following the above guidelines will insure proper supervision for all students. Should we have problems with students not being picked up on time; arrangements will need to be made with the YMCA for before/after school daycare.
School-Wide Behavioral Managment Plan:
Please review the "School-Wide Behavioral Management Plan." Our entire school is utilizing a color coded card system. The handbook explains clearly what each card means. Make sure to ask your child what color they were on today!
Recess Before Lunch:
This year we have made schedule adjustments to accommodate the recess before lunch concept. The idea has been well received by students and staff. We have worked through and continue to work through some adjustments with the logistics of making such a change. Please be patient as we continue to make this change as seamless as possible for the betterment of all students.
Parent Assist Module:
If you have older children in middle and high school, you have been notified of the Parent Assist Module. The module allows parents to view student grades online with a password. You may notice when logging in for your older children that your elementary children are also listed. Please be aware that elementary student grades will not be made available online until second semester. More information will come out as we get closer to second semester.
Our first scheduled two-hour delay for our teacher in-service will be Tuesday, September 28th. During our two-hour delay, staff will be analyzing our testing data from the Ohio Department of Education. Please plan accordingly for the scheduled delay.
Ohio Department of Education - Ohio Achievement Test Results:
All students who took the OAA last spring received their "Family Reports" Friday, August 27th. I'd like to congratulate everyone at Coy for their hard work last school year. Coy met 4 out of the 7 State standards and met our AYP goal which entitles us to be designated an “Effective” school by the Ohio Department of Education. Way to go! Together, we will continue to strive for excellence!
Students + Teachers + Parents = Success! Let’s have a great year together.
Yours in education,
Mrs. Molnar J
ATTENDANCE PHONE LINE
If you are calling to report your student tardy or absent, please contact our attendance line at 419-693-4054.
State law requires schools to identify gifted students according to standards set by the Ohio Department of Education. The State of Ohio recognizes four areas of Giftedness. These areas are superior cognitive ability, specific academic ability, creative thinking ability, and visual and/or performing arts ability. Each of these abilities has different test requirements and different score requirements. The entire process is very lengthy and complicated.
In the spring of 2010 all students in grades 3, 5 & 7 were given the Otis-Lennon School Ability Test (OLSAT) and the Metropolitan Achievement Test (MAT 8). These tests are part of the multi-factored criteria necessary for gifted identification in the State of Ohio. After all the results were in and tabulated, parents of children qualifying in any of the categories listed above have been notified by personal letter from the Coordinator of Gifted Education.
Students in K, 1, 2, 4, 6 & 8 are evaluated through the building referral process. If you have any questions about gifted education please call Tammy Swartz, 693-0665 ext. 2044.
