Intra-District Open Enrollment
Parents interested in intra-district open enrollment for the 2016-2017 school year are invited to attend an informational meeting with Superintendent Hill on Monday, April 11, 2016, at 6:00 p.m. The meeting will be held in the Distance Learning Lab (Room 2702) at Wadsworth High School. After entering through the front doors, proceed up the stairs and to your left.
Intra-District Open Enrollment is for Wadsworth residents who are interested in having their children attend elementary buildings (Grades K-4) other than their home-base schools.
Additional information, including application date deadlines, and the intra-district open enrollment packet are available on the Open Enrollment webpage.
Through a Safe Routes to School grant, Valley View Elementary has 20 boys and 20 girls bicycle helmets available to give away to students in need of a well-fitting helmet. They are size Youth 8+. If your child does not have a helmet that fits and is in need of a helmet, please click the link below to submit a request. The helmets will be distributed in the order the requests are received.
We are excited to provide several ways for our Valley View families to stay informed of important news, activities, and upcoming events. Please take a few minutes to complete the Student Information Form and signup to receive "Remind" messages directly to your phone or email. You can also follow @vvprincipal on Twitter.
Beginning this year, Wadsworth City Schools are requiring fingerprint and background checks for those volunteers who are in the school on a regular basis. Volunteers who read with students in hallways and our extended learning areas are required to be approved by the Board of Education once their background check and fingerprints are cleared. Mr. Roberts will take the names of those volunteers wishing to have checks completed and notify the central office BEFORE you make an appointment to go through the process. ** IF you are volunteering on a limited basis (Soc Hop; Carnival; etc) you will not have to go through the process. ** You may make an appointment at the Charles Parsons Administration Building between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. (not 12-1:00). The background/fingerprint checks will cost $46 to process (none of the money goes to the schools).
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.
