Solon Schools’ Day Care Transportation Forms Are Due August 12
Friday, August 01, 2014

With the start of the 2014-15 school year under three weeks away, the Solon Schools’ Transportation Department is working to finalize bus routes for this year. Parents can assist in this process by ensuring that any special transportation needs for students are clearly outlined now by filling out and submitting the district’s Day Care/Special Transportation Request form by August 12.

This form is necessary for all students who will be attending a Solon before- or after-school day care program and wish to ride Solon Schools’ buses to get to school in the morning from day care or from school to the day care program in the afternoon.

The form must arrive at the Transportation Department by August 12 for day care transportation to begin the first week of school. Day care transportation is not guaranteed. We must have a minimum of five children from your child’s school going to a day care location to provide transportation. In addition, day care transportation is limited to the number of seats we have available for transport on that day care bus.

Summer Keyboarding Practice Opportunity - Log In to Type to Learn
Friday, June 20, 2014

Roxbury provides a web-enabled keyboarding program for students. Keyboarding is an important skill in schools and the workforce as well as providing a means for communicating with others, sharing ideas, expressing thoughts and even utilizing entertainment through computer games.

Typing is the primary means of interfacing with a computer. Therefore, learning how to use the keyboard is an essential 21st century skill that students must develop in order to type effectively and efficiently on computers.

Students have a username and password that permits them to use the program from either school or home. A reference page is posted below with instructions for downloading and accessing the program from a home computer.

Summer Reading Guidelines for Roxbury Students: 800 Minutes and a "My Favorite Book" Sheet
Friday, June 20, 2014

Parents and kids alike look forward to summer vacation and the “break” away from school. But educational research clearly shows that a complete break from exposure to reading and math over the summer months is not best for kids as it results in a phenomenon called the summer slide.

Those studies show that students who read over the summer gain reading achievement during that time and those who do not read lose ground, or experience summer reading loss.

The reading students do over the summer can be fun, and they do not have to limit their reading choise to books only. They can read anything that interests them, such as newspapers, magazines, online articles, books, manuals, pamphlets, maps, guidebooks, poems, music lyrics, and more. Students can read hard copy books or read electronically on computers, e-readers, smartphones or tablets. The most important aspect of summer reading is simply reading. Any reading counts – students just need to select something that interests them.

Independent reading fosters many reading skills such as vocabulary knowledge, phonemic awareness, phonics and comprehension.
