Working on our research projects!
Wednesday, January 21, 2015

We learned all about the features in non-fiction texts. During mini lessons we found out how to use table of contents, headings, diagrams, charts, captions, and glossaries. Next, it was off to doing some research of our own. We made posters to demonstrate all of the knowledge learned from of topic of interest. We even printed out pictures to add to our posters in the computer lab using clip art. Here we are putting on the finishing touches.

Transition Enrollment Open Houses at Lewis, Parkside and Roxbury on January 22
Wednesday, January 21, 2015

This is a reminder for families who live in new elementary attendance zones for 2015-16 that Lewis, Parkside and Roxbury Elementary Schools will all be open for families to visit on Thursday, January 22, from 6 to 7 p.m.

The open houses are not structured events. They are just the first opportunity for parents and students to get a look at their potential new school.

More formal orientation and new family welcome programs will be scheduled once final transitional enrollment decisions are made for all students. Information about those events will be communicated to families in late spring.

Letters were sent via email and US Mail to all families who live in new attendance zones with a link to the Transition Enrollment Request Form for each child. Thank you for completing the application. The deadline is February 6.

If you did not receive an email or hard copy letter and you believe you live in a new attendance zone, please contact us at tstrom@solonboe.org. A high-resolution version of the new K-4 attendance zone is posted on the Solon Schools’ home page under News & Notes.

Kindergarten Registration 2015: Calling the Class of 2028
Wednesday, January 14, 2015

Kindergarten registration for the Solon Schools is just around the corner. The first step in the process is a Kindergarten Information Night program on Wednesday, February 18, at 7 p.m., in the Solon High School Auditorium. The information night program is a welcome to all parents of incoming kindergarten students for the fall of 2015. The principals and guidance counselors from Lewis, Parkside and Roxbury elementary schools will provide an overview of the kindergarten program and the registration process. Registration packets will be distributed during this program as well.

With the new redistricting process under way, Solon will have kindergarten in Lewis, Parkside and Roxbury only beginning this fall. Both full- and half-day kindergarten will be offered. However, it is not yet known which schools will have half-day sections and whether those sections will be in the morning or afternoon.

Kindergarten registration takes place Wednesday, March 4, for students with last names beginning A-L and Thursday, March 5, for students with last names beginning M-Z from 8–11:30 a.m. in the Arthur Road Elementary School Cafeteria.
