From the Superintendent's Desk...

As we conclude the school year at Ravenna Public Schools, I wanted to take a moment to thank all of the folks who have made this school year so successful and meaningful for our students.  The Community of Ravenna has been incredibly supportive of the school and supportive of the activities program at the school.  Over the course of the year, I have been very impressed with the parents’ support and encouragement of their students.  Whether it is while they are supporting the activities program, attending parent teachers conferences, or attending fine arts events, they are always positive and supportive.  Our teachers and support staff have kept things flowing smoothly and consistently deliver high quality instruction, transportation, meals, and care for all of the students.  Last, but certainly not least, I’d like to thank the staff of The Ravenna News.  They provide outstanding coverage of the students’ activities and school events, generously allow us to publish this newsletter each month, and continuously strive to provide accurate reporting of our board meetings and the business operations of the school.  Thanks to everyone who has contributed to making this school year such a success.


I encourage you to keep your kids active and to keep them learning during the summer months.  There are many ways to do this:


  1.  Keep your kids active by having them participate in the summer activity programs and camps.  Try to make it a goal to have your student engage in physical activity for at least 60 minutes a day.
  2. READ-Visit your local library, get some great books, shut off the TV, and dedicate 30 minutes a day to “family reading time.”
  3. Practice math facts on-line through math games.  There are many math games available for free on-line.  Encourage your child to play these math facts games.  If you and your child like Soduko, you’ll love “KenKen”.  Google “KenKen,” and let the fun begin.
  4. Encourage your students to write about their summer experiences.  Whether they are writing about a visit with relatives, their camping trip, their vacation, or just their exploits in the backyard, writing about experiences provides students an opportunity to stay sharp and to record their memories for the future.
  5. Encourage your children to cook with you.  Cooking provides math skills development, the opportunity to be creative, and you’ll get to enjoy the fruits of your labor together.  It also helps students become self-sufficient.  By the end of summer, they will be making lunch for you, rather than you making lunch for them.


By keeping physically active and mentally active over the summer months, students will return to school in the fall ready to learn.  And when they return, the staff at Ravenna Public Schools will be ready to help each student achieve as much academic growth as possible during the upcoming 2017-18 school year.  I hope everyone has a safe and productive summer filled with smiles, laughter, and a lots of family time.  This summer we’ll be making repairs and improvements to the school, ordering supplies and materials, and getting things organized for another successful school year.  Until next August, have a wonderful, safe, and productive summer!
