Hello Bulldog Families!
Quarter 4 is underway! Next up is State Testing. Test dates for all grades are listed below. Please keep in mind that the dates listed will include test times throughout the entire school day when considering medical appointments or vacation time.
Stay up-to-date on the latest news about Ohio's State Tests by visiting the following Ohio Department of Education link: http://education.ohio.gov/Topics/Testing. Additional information about testing in our district is available on the school website at www.wcsoh.org. We feel confident in the progress teachers have made preparing our students for state testing this year and have every expectation students will be successful.
Parents can make a difference in preparing students for a successful testing experience as well. Encouragement, rest, and good nutrition all play a significant role in how well students perform in school everyday. Please be aware of scheduled test dates and be sure your student is getting a good night’s rest and eating a healthy breakfast to start the day.
Meanwhile, remind students to continue following daily announcements to keep up on the ever changing happenings here at Blendon. All daily announcements and Blendon newsletters are also posted on our school website and sent out via email through One Call.
While there is plenty of work ahead of us, the Blendon Bulldogs look forward to an exciting and successful softball and track season in addition to our Quarter 3 Renaissance Celebration coming up on May 8. It’s also not too soon to be looking ahead to the fall sports season. Academic performance this final quarter 4 determines eligibility for participating in fall athletics for the 2018-2019 school year. Follow the link to access required athletic forms, including physical evaluations and information about sports participation fees. A physical evaluation signed by your student’s doctor is required annually.
