Message from Principal Carter

Dear East Canton Elementary students and families,

This is Principal Carter, and I have an important announcement as we wrap up this school year.

First, we want you to know that we have greatly missed learning with you at school each day, and we are very proud of the efforts you have made to continue to show your Hornet PRIDE and keep learning at home.

We will be holding a final year-end drive-through on Friday, May 29th.  At this time, students will be receiving a brown grocery bag that contains all of their personal belongings left at school, award certificates, and their final year-end report card.

We are asking that students turn in any school owned materials such as library books, text books, math templates, and chromebooks at this time.

On this May 29th drive through families and students should come to get their materials and drop off things only during their assigned grade level time even if they have siblings in other grade levels.  If this will not work for your family, please contact me directly at rebecca.carter@osnaburglocal.org to make other arrangements.

The drive through times for May 29th are as follows: 5th grade from 10:30a.m. until 12:00p.m.  4th grade from 12:00p.m. until 1:00p.m.  3rd Grade will be from 1:00p.m. until 2:00p.m.  2nd grade will be from 2:00p.m. until 3:00p.m.  1st Grade will be from 3:00p.m. until 4:00p.m. and Kindergarten pickup will be from 4:00p.m. until 5:00p.m.

If you have any questions regarding the drive through or grading, please contact me by email or school phone at 330-488-0392 extension 156.  Thank you and have a wonderful evening!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Rebecca J Carter

    April 21st Update

    Good evening!  

    First of all, I want to thank you for your work in supporting your child’s education.  If you need anything at all, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Tonight I have a reminder concerning Kindergarten and Preschool Registration, and also an announcement regarding yearbooks.

    Due to the social distancing rules and the mandated school building closure, all Kindergarten and Preschool Registration and Screening meetings have been postponed.  As soon as we are able to safely reschedule, we will announce the new dates through a robocall, our website, and social media.

    Secondly, we will be adding a COVID-19 section in the East Canton Elementary School 2019-2020 yearbook.  If you have any pictures of your children participating in remote learning that you would like included in the yearbook, please email them to rebecca.carter@osnaburglocal.org.  I hope to include as many of these pictures as I can in a special section of our yearbook.

    Lastly, if you have not yet ordered your yearbook, Lifetouch has reopened our online sales platform through this Thursday, April 23rd.  The website is: ybpay.lifetouch.com

    You will need our Yearbook code which is 2089320.  You can also email me your order request and then mail a $15 check made payable to East Canton Elementary to our school.

    Once again, Preschool and Kindergarten registration and screenings are postponed until further notice.  And, you still have the opportunity to order a yearbook for your Elementary child and send pictures to me to be included in the yearbook.

    Thank you and have a great evening!

    March 30th Update

    “Good afternoon!  This is Principal Carter. Thank you for your diligence and great effort as we continue to work through this uncertain situation.  You are all in my thoughts and prayers, and I greatly miss seeing our students each day at school. Today Governor DeWine extended the school closure through May 1st.  

     

    This week, our Elementary students should be continuing to work on the packets and instructions that were given to them our last week of school.  This Friday we will be asking students to turn in the work they have completed and pickup new work and instructions to begin next week.

     

    At this point we have prepared plans for remote learning which will include the following: ALL students in grades 3rd, 4th, & 5th grade should have access to a device at home which can be used for digital learning and connections.  If your child does not have a device at home to use, please fill out the Google form located on our Elementary webpage or contact me at 330-488-0392 to RSVP a chromebook. Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade students do not need a chromebook to complete their remote learning. 

     

    Secondly, each homeroom teacher will be contacting each of their students weekly by video or phone means to check-in and answer questions.  Parents, please check your email, Remind, or Class Dojo messages frequently to communicate with your child’s teacher and schedule these weekly check-ins. In addition, students should check their school emails daily.  

     

    Lastly, on this Friday, April 3rd we will be having a drive-through remote learning pick-up and drop-off by the car rider cones outside door 1.  On Friday, if you reserved a chromebook, it will be available to pick-up after you sign a borrower’s agreement. Also at Friday’s drive through, the teacher will be available to collect the work that was already completed and hand out the new work and plans for remote learning as well as the 3rd nine week report cards.  Each grade level has a one hour designated drive through time. Families with children in multiple grade levels may pick up and drop off work for all the children at one time if they wish. The drive through schedule for Friday, April 3rd is as follows: 5th grade homeroom teachers will be available from 11:00a.m. to 12:00p.m.  4th grade homeroom teachers will be available from 12:00p.m. to 1:00p.m. 3rd grade homeroom teachers will be available from 1:00p.m. to 2:00p.m. 2nd grade homeroom teachers will be available from 2:00p.m. to 3:00p.m. 1st grade homeroom teachers will be available from 3:00p.m. to 4:00p.m. and the Kindergarten homeroom teachers will be available from 4:00p.m. to 5:00p.m.

     

    The information provided in this message will also be posted on our Elementary school webpage for reference.  If you have any questions, please contact me at rebecca.carter@osnaburglocal.org  Thank you once again for your great efforts!  Together we can continue to keep our children safe and learning.  Lastly, please remember that school breakfast and lunch bags are available for pick up to all students every Monday from 11:00-11:45a.m. outside door 1  Take care!”

    March 23rd Update

     “Good afternoon!  This is Principal Carter.  We definitely miss seeing our students every day, but we hope you have found some time to reconnect with family, explore outdoors, read, and play.  If you have any questions or need any assistance, please do not hesitate to reach out via email to any of our school staff. We would like to announce that we are going to end the third nine week grading period as of March 13th, the last day students were in the school building.  We are offering this week through Friday, March 27th as an opportunity for students to complete any work they may have been missing from the 3rd nine week grading period. Please note that the hard copy and online work sent home with the students to complete during this extended spring break will NOT be part of the 3rd nine week grading period.  All families will have access to view their child’s grades through the online parent pinnacle viewer which can be accessed on the school website under the parents tab. If you need the log-in information to view your child’s grades, please contact me by email at rebecca.carter@osnaburglocal.org. Once again, students should complete any makeup or incomplete work to be included on the third nine week grading period by Friday, March 27th.  Please direct any questions to myself or your child’s teacher through email, Class Dojo, or Remind. Thank you!”
