To better understand how to prevent suicide in our community, the Stark County Health Department, Ohio Department of Health and representatives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) created the Northeast Ohio Youth Health Survey to learn about mental health among Northeast Ohio’s youth.

3rd Grade Students Create Books

Ms. Kandel and Mrs. Walker had the opportunity to share an exciting app they used while reading Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh. Western Reserve Public Media came to interview and videotape the 3rd grade Language Arts class and teachers. The students researched a non-fiction element of the story, either an animal or plant. They then were able to use Book Creator to make two pages explaining their topic. Each student page was added to create a class book.
