Memorial ALPHA Program Goes to College
A wonderful group of young ladies from Memorial was recently invited to Case Western Reserve University as guests of Case science and engineering students.  It is the WISER groups goal to promote the academic excellence of women pursuing science at CWRU by building a learning community and by giving them the tools they need to succeed. WISER (Women in Science and Engineering Roundtable) is open to all female CWRU students with a major or planning a career in science, technology, engineering, medicine or math. The SEL schools continue to offer enrichment opportunities for its students motivated to learn.   
Elementary Schools Participate in Fathers Walk 2016
Students at all four district elementary schools were provided a special opportunity to walk to school and spend time with their fathers and father-figures as part of the Fathers Walk 2016 program on Thursday, September 22nd. The annual event is designed to encourage fathers and father-figures to play an active role in the life of their child and be a positive role model. In addition to refreshments, each building’s program included remarks by school administrators and a variety of guest speakers. The program closed with all participants standing and reciting the Fathers Walk Pledge together, expressing their commitment to supporting their child’s learning and communicating the importance of doing their best in school. Each father and father-figure in attendance then walked with their child to the main entrance of the school building.  
Cleveland Black Storyteller Visits Sunview Elementary School
A recent visit to Sunview Elementary provided for a fun and interactive learning environment, all courtesy of several readers from the Cleveland Association of Black Storytellers. Designed to perpetuate Black Storytelling and pass along the tradition of oral communication to share cultural history and values, four members from this organization visited Sunview because of a family relationship with one of our first grade students. Darlene Bostick, who is a retired teacher, led the storytelling which captivated the building’s elementary students. A total of 5 folk tales were shared with the students, each one ending with a moral that students can apply to their own life. We thank Darlene and her colleagues for spending time with our students.   
Brush High School Seniors Earn High Honors
Two seniors at Charles F. Brush High School have achieved very high honors that the SEL Schools would like to share with the community. Leah Fox and Josh Laurienzo were recently recognized by the National Merit Program, an organization dedicating to honor the academically talented students across the country. Both students received “Letter of Commendation” status for their hard work and scholarly skills. This ranking places them both in the top 5% of 1.6 million students in the United States in the National Merit competition. Congratulations to Leah, Josh and their families for earning such high honors.   
SEL Schools Addresses Recently Released State Report Card
Yesterday, the Ohio Department of Education released the results for the State Report Card for the 2015-2016 school year. The purpose of the State Report card is to help identify strengths and weaknesses in each child’s educational programming. The SEL Schools encourages the community to view the results of the State Report Card in their proper context, in that, the current inconsistencies of the testing environment in Ohio have made preparing for them a significant challenge. Simply put, three separate and individual tests have been administered from the State in three separate years. The entire SEL leadership team, including teachers and staff welcome accountability, and are proud of the grades it received during the 2014-2015 school year as well as the State’s first ever Momentum Award for receiving A’s on every value added indicator. Yet only six months later, this past year’s results fell short of the prior year’s marks. This report card does not accurately measure how the SEL Schools are actually performing.

Teambuilding and School Climate at Arc Learning Academy
Creating a warm and inviting school climate where youth are actively engaged, have school spirit, and want to learn is one of the goals at Arc Learning Academy. Under the leadership of Dr. Larraine Fuller and the excellent staff at ALA, the kick-off to the school year was a new experience for the students. Students were welcomed at a school-wide assembly where they were able to engage with new staff and students in an inviting atmosphere. Icebreakers and energizers encouraqed the students to look within themselves and start to identify their unique talents and strengths. Students and staff were able to recognize that in order to have a successful year, each person needs to be open to trying new things and actively participating in ALA. The theme #ChangeTheGame was introduced to the students and staff and the message focused on changing mindsets, attitudes, and beliefs about education and community.

Interim Report Cards
South Euclid Lyndhurst Families - Due to your ability, via Parent Access, to view your son or daughters updated grades at any time during the school year, the decision has been made to no longer mail home or electronically provide an interim report. Since families are now able to view in “real time” the daily performance of your child in all their classes, the interim report has become redundant and unnecessary. To remain informed of your child’s progress, we strongly suggest you check Parent Access on a daily basis to keep up to date with all assignments and grades. The school will continue to provide report cards, viewable online, for all four grading periods. If you need help registering for Parent Access, please contact your son or daughter’s school building for assistance.
