  • Nutrition program benefits students  
     
    The Student Nutrition Department and the Greene County Farm Bureau Association have teamed up once again this Spring to bring valuable nutrition education to the elementary students of Beavercreek Schools in conjunction with Earth Day. The department earned a $1500 grant from the Ohio Farm Bureau Association to help provide, the theme of our 5th Annual “Earth Day with a Twist” program, “Ohio’s Great Whole Grains!”
     
    Our celebration was a week-long event that included wonderful nutrition educational outreach.
    The students learned about the importance of eating whole grains. There were displays of what whole grains look like and daily fun, fact-filled announcements. Grades K-3 colored whole grain coloring sheets that adorned the café walls and grades 4 and 5 were given Ag Mag flyers all about whole grain corn.
     
    Two books were donated to the library, Farmer George Plants a Nation and Grains on MyPlate. Along with all of the whole grain rich items served each day, the students also experienced whole grain cornbread! A random drawing was done to select the winners of the whole grain prizes that included, a cereal and sandwich puzzle and two whole grain bread baskets that were generously donated by the Aunt Millie Bakery. The winners are pictured below.
     
    Many thanks to the Ohio Farm Bureau Association and Aunt Millie’s Bakery for their support of our efforts to bring nutrition education to our young students.

  • District D-Labs open for learning

    The district’s four Design Thinking Labs (D-Labs) are officially open. These labs, built using funds from the district’s $995,000 Straight-A Grant, usher in an investigative and entrepreneurial approach to learning.

    Located at Beavercreek High School, Ferguson Hall, Coy Middle School, and Ankeney Middle School, the recently completed labs are designed to foster creative thinking that helps students solve real-world problems. “Our students will now begin learning a process that incorporates collaboration, creating and defining ideas, peer feedback, and problem solving,” said Assistant Superintendent Susan Hayward, Ph.D. “It is known as Design Thinking and it will help students hone skills needed for success in the 21st century.”

    The district’s new Design Thinking approach is embedded in science and social studies courses and in electives for students in grades 8-12. Classes are taught by district teachers who have received immersive, hands-on training. When students and teachers put Design Thinking principles into action, great things will happen, a belief shared by Hayward, “the synergy created by this process will create a positive impact on our students and district for years to come.”

  • Student excels at State Science Day

    Beavercreek City Schools excel at producing some of the brightest students in the state; a recent honor for scientific achievement proves it. 

    Rachel Martin, an Ankeney Middle School 6th grade student, received a Superior rating at the 67th Annual State Science Day, hosted by The Ohio State University. A panel of 8 judges determined her research project, which explored the effects of storage on Vitamin C, to be exemplary. “I was nervous after the judging but I got a good score,” Martin said.

    Recognition for her scientific prowess is nothing new for Martin. In addition to this latest accomplishment in Columbus, she also received a Superior rating for her project at the Ankeney Science Fair, and a Superior rating at the district science fair in Cedarville.

    Encouraged by her teachers and family, Martin wants to participate in science competitions over the next several years. She hopes to join a select group of students who compete at the state level in consecutive years. “I want to thank my mom, dad, grandma, and grandpa. I couldn’t keep doing all of this without them.”

  • Preschool construction nears completion
     
    The new Beavercreek City Schools preschool addition, connected to the current Board of Education offices located at the corner of Kemp and Hanes roads, is nearing completion. The 18,500 square foot addition will contain 9 classrooms, each capable of accommodating approximately 14 students per class session. It is a facility intended to benefit students while meeting the needs of the district.

    Beginning in the 2015-2016 school year, a more secure, engaging, and modern learning environment will exist. Additionally, the new preschool will satisfy state and federal laws mandating public schools must offer preschool special education services. “This state-of-the-art preschool building is specifically designed for the early learning and developmental needs of our students,” stated Bobbie Fiori, Director of Pupil Services. “The progression of this project and the enthusiasm of the preschool staff are exciting.”

    An open house where the public can view the dynamic layout and architectural design of the new preschool is being planned. Beavercreek City Schools will also hold a formal dedication ceremony before the doors open to students.

  • Military luncheon a success

    April is designated the Month of the Military Child. So, it comes as no surprise that Trebein Elementary School’s military luncheon was a complete success.

    Coordinator of the event, Robin Williams, shared the importance of this annual luncheon. "It's beautiful to see families who have impending deployments be able to see each other and spend time together."

    James Mitchell, Deputy of Department System Manager for the F-15, couldn't agree more, "I don't often get a chance to visit during school hours or go to after school events. It's nice to see my daughter [Lauren] during the day and talk."

    This year, as a demonstration, military dogs from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base were on hand displaying their athleticism and intelligence. Lisa Walk, Trebein Elementary School principal, is very optimistic about the success of the military luncheon. She is hopeful the luncheon will be even bigger and even better next year.-Article by Sarah Christy

  • Reading Recovery intervention making a difference

    Reading Recovery, a nationally known intervention designed to help the district’s first grade students improve their reading skills, celebrates 30 years this year. Next year, Beavercreek City Schools will celebrate 30 years with Reading Recovery. The Board of Education and community members learned what methods the program uses to improve a student’s performance.

    Highly trained teachers use daily, 30 minute, one-to-one lessons that supplement the student’s classroom instruction. Sessions with the student include writing, familiar reading, word and letter work, a cut up story, and reading a new book.

    Positive results are happening thanks to Reading Recovery. This is another example of Beavercreek City Schools using research based intervention to help students achieve their full potential.
