Third Graders receive dictionaries from Elks
Third grade students of Marysville Schools were recently presented with their own dictionary compliments of the Marysville Elks #1130. In honor of Veterans Day they are using their dictionary to look up the word veteran.  This is the eighth year for the Dictionary Project which distributes nearly 900 dictionaries to third graders in the Marysville, North Union, Fairbanks, Jonathan Alder, St. Johns, and Trinity school systems. The Elks feel that a child cannot do his or her best work without a dictionary and the teachers know that their students now have consistent access to a tool for homework and in class assignments.  See pictures attached.

Local Teachers Benefit from Walmart Teacher Rewards Program
On Friday October 3 Walmart awarded 20 teachers from Northwoods Elementary with $50 reward cards to purchase classroom supplies that will help students start the school year off right as part of the company's Teacher Rewards program. For the sixth year, Walmart will donate over $5 million to provide 100,000 teachers across the United States with rewards cards to help offset the cost of  room expenses.  "We are proud of our community's teachers, who give time and often their own money to ensure our students have everything they need to be successful throughout the school year." Aaron Baldwin, Marysville Walmart store manager.   Cindy Sheldon, Marysville Walmart HR/Training Coordinator says "These funds come at a critical time, as many teachers will spend an estimated $1000 of their own money to ensure their students have the supplies needed to learn all year long. We just want to ease that burden a little bit."   The Teacher Rewards program is an extension of Walmart's ongoing support of local education initiatives that help students better prepare for their future. In 2013, Walmart & it's Foundation donated more than $44 million to fund education programs across the country.  
Tech Night @ Halcyon
Five students and one teacher helped Halcyon residents with their tablets, IPads or laptops.  They learned numerous miscellaneous tech tasks.  Residents enjoyed snacks and came up with a list of other tech skills they would like to learn.  Lots of laughs and great camaraderie among the young and seniors. 
 
 
CREEKVIEW SMARTER LUNCHROOMS
Many stakeholders in education are concerned about what our students are eating and what they are discarding from their lunch plate eat day. To help us better understand exactly what schools discard and how to offer more desirable meals, Creekview has joined forces with the Ohio Department of Education and Wright State University. We are participating in a pilot program designed to study plate waste in school lunch programs.

Graduate students from Wright State University will be visiting Creekview in October and November to analyze waste on student lunch trays. In October, base measurements will be gathered and recorded by collecting lunch trays and measuring waste. In November, graduate students will be adding additional vegetable toppings to entrée choices on the menu and will again be measuring waste.

The data from the study will be recorded and analyzed and shared with the school district. Information will be pro-vided on how to make serving sizes more appropriate, how to make meals more appealing to students, and how to minimize waste.
