INFOhio Beach Bags and Camp INFOhio are two sets of free materials that are back by popular demand. INFOhio and the Ohio Department of Education are offering these two resources to give parents more fun ways to keep their children learning at home this summer. No sign-up is necessary.

Once again, we received grant funding from the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation that will make a summer STEM Camp for students who are currently enrolled in kindergarten through eighth grade in the Wadsworth City Schools. Camp will be held from 9:00 a.m. to noon daily at Wadsworth High School. Dates for camp will be July 25-29.
Thanks to funding from the Four Cities Compact, we will also be able to hold Computer Science/Coding Camp this year. Any Wadsworth City Schools’ student enrolled in kindergarten through eleventh grade is eligible to attend. Camp will be held from 9:00 a.m. to noon daily at Wadsworth High School. Dates for camp will be July 18-22.
In order to give more students the opportunity to attend a camp this year, students will be limited to attend only one camp. If we end up with extra spots in either camp that are unfilled, a separate sign-up will be held.
The letter that follows was sent to all parents, staff, and community members on February 25, 2016 from Dr. Hill, Superintendent:
The purpose of this letter is to address the release of our most recent report card from the State of Ohio; the report card is from the 2014-2015 school year. Due to the PARCC tests that were given last year (these tests are no longer used by our state) and the time needed to receive and decipher the results, report cards were released by the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) much later than usual. The first part of the report card was released on January 14 and the second, and final, part today.
For parents who have a child who will be turning 5 years old prior to September 30, 2016 and are planning to enroll him/her for kindergarten, please complete the information by clicking here. A Parent Information Meeting will be held on Monday, February 22 at 6:30 PM in the WHS Performing Arts Center.
