Ohio Board of Education Recognizes SEL With Momentum Award

The South Euclid Lyndhurst Schools were recently awarded the state’s first annual Momentum Award, presented to the district on behalf of the Ohio Board of Education. This award was given to the SEL Schools for their strong performance on the 2014-2015 State Report Card, particularly for earning A’s in every Value-Added metric. SEL Schools were among the elite school districts in the state, according to the State Board of Education, that ensured its pupils received a year’s worth of academic growth in reading and mathematics. Congratulations for earning this year’s Momentum Award and for operating each of our schools at a level that meets students precisely where they need intervention or enrichment and delivering a quality education.

Fourth Graders Hold Rocket Launch at Greenview Upper Elementary

4th graders from Team Montreal at Greenview showcased their STEM skills by participating in a rocket launch. The special learning experience took place behind the school in the grass field appropriately named “Cape Greenview,” and was overseen by Math and Science teacher Mr. Paul Kijinski. Students were organized into small groups which assisted Mr. Kijinski in preparing and launching fourteen Alpha III rockets. Featuring a solid fuel engine, the rockets soared to over 1,000 feet above “Cape Greenview,” with fellow students and teachers observing from a safe distance. Students were also organized into teams to locate and retrieve all rockets once they landed. 

Students Experience the Wonders of Nature

Fifth grade students at Greenview recently had the opportunity to experience the wonders of the nature, while putting their fifth grade science skills into practice. Students turned into astronomers on a "Solar System Walk," where they walked the relative distances between the planets (assuming the sun was the size of a balloon). They became ecologists and raced to find abiotic and biotic elements of an ecosystem in a "Selfie Scavenger Hunt." Fifth graders braved the steep slope down into Euclid Creek itself and practiced the skills necessary to be a limnologist (study of fresh water) using "old school" and new technology equipment. Finally, students went on a old fashioned nature hike, where they had the opportunity to see squirrels, birds, toads, snakes, and a bunch of decomposers.
