The hustle and bustle of December is coming to a close as we settle in for the winter months and a pattern of unpredictable weather. The Honeywell Instant Alert notification system is a valuable tool to keep you informed of changes in the school day or activities. You may make changes to your account at any time. If you choose to only receive texts, please be aware that we are very limited with the length of texts allowed, so many times it is difficult to put an entire message in text format. If you choose to receive messages via text, but not voice, I suggest also receiving messages through email to ensure you receive the entire message. As always, if you have trouble with your account, please call Kathy Smith at 419-258-5421 extension 3.
January is School Board Recognition Month and a chance for all of us to say thanks to our school board members for the important work that they do for our school. The positive leadership of the board members and their concern for the well-being of the students in our district continue to make Antwerp a great place to work, a wonderful place to go to school, and a source of community pride.
As we move into the second semester of the school year, our teachers will continue to offer curriculum that meets or exceeds state standards and similarly prepares our students for the state assessments given to many of our students during the months of April and May. These assessments will be computer based and similar to assessments given during previous years. Furthermore, our teachers continue to integrate and incorporate technology into their daily instruction and student coursework.
January brings a new year and a renewed opportunity to work together for the benefit of our students. Community support is necessary for our district to continue to improve. By working together, we will make a difference in the lives of the children in our district.
