Parent Information Night Scheduled for Kindergarten Parents for the Upcoming 2015-2016 School Year

The Stow-Munroe Falls City School District is hosting Parent Information Night for all six elementary buildings on March 18, 2015 from 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM at the Stow Munroe Falls High School auditorium. Parents of new kindergarten students (age eligibility is 5 years old by August 1st) are invited to attend this event to enjoy an evening with elementary principals, teachers and school staff.  During the course of the evening, parents will have the opportunity to hear from building principals and teachers and learn how to register their child for school through the district's Central Registration Office.  Afterward, building and district staff will be on hand to answer any questions.

Parents of students who are not eligible due to their age may attend this event, however, they will need to request a testing packet for early entrance to kindergarten by calling 330-689-5430 or may obtain the packet from the district website, www.smfschools.org, selecting the Parent and Enrollment links.  Early entrance testing will occur in early May/June.  Students not eligible for kindergarten due to age will not be able to register for kindergarten until the testing is complete and results indicate they qualify for early entrance.

SMFCSD will continue to provide the current half-day kindergarten program as well as the all-day kindergarten program for the 2015-2016 school year.  If you are unsure of your current home school of attendance, please contact the transportation department at 330-689-5234.

 For those families who are unable to attend, registration procedures and information will be posted on the district website beginning March 19th.  We look forward to meeting our new parents during Parent Information Night at the Stow Munroe Falls High School auditorium.

Announcement to the Community

Dear Friends:

At the September 8 Board of Education meeting, I announced that I will retire from my position as superintendent effective January 30, 2015.

It has been my honor to serve as your superintendent the past nine years. The Stow-Munroe Falls City School District is one of the very best in Ohio, supported passionately by the wonderful people in both of our great communities.

I sincerely appreciate the tremendous support I have received over the years and it has and continues to be, a privilege to work on behalf of the children of our school district.

Sincerely,

Russ Jones

K-4 Library Reorganization to Provide 21st Century Skills for Children

The Stow-Munroe Falls City School District plans to reorganize its K-4 Media Center delivery system by replacing the current traditional model with a 21st century approach to provide the necessary research and technology skills to the children of the school district.  We have been operating for a number of years in our K-4 buildings without the services of a Library Media Specialist. This new approach will allow us to place three of our current top level licensed teachers who are adept at technology and research skills to provide the necessary instruction for our kids. It is imperative that we provide our children with the appropriate integrated skills called for in the State of Ohio’s K-12 Library Curriculum. This integrated approach includes:  “information literacy”, “technology literacy” and “media literacy”. These major themes of instruction are not only critical for learners in a 21st century research setting but they are also essential skills for children to master in preparation for the new state mandated “PARCC” assessments. These new assessments require a range of technology skills that students must have mastered in order to achieve at their highest possible level on these tests.

We will continue the current reading programs already in place across the district. We are very excited about this new approach to our K-4 instructional delivery model. We are sure that our students will benefit from this cutting edge approach.
