Dear Community Members:

 

I hope you have been enjoying what has been an amazing run of weather. We all know that things average out over time, which is terrific for those of us who have kids in outdoor sports this spring!!

 

Speaking of weather, we will be watching possible storms tomorrow night as Boy’s Basketball is at Otsego, and Wrestling is at Lake. We will be watching the timing of the weather during the evening and all locations are prepped in case we have a severe weather warning. Odd winter….

 

I have a number of things for you as things are heating up on the calendar as well.

 

THANK YOU EASTWOOD AND LAKE CHEERLEADERS FOR ANOTHER GREAT JUMP OVER CANCER FUNDRAISER

 

Last Friday the Eastwood and Lake Cheerleaders participated in the annual Jump Over Cancer Fundraiser at halftime of the Eastwood/Lake basketball game. In the eight years the cheerleaders have been partnering with other schools and have raised over $45,400 for the American Cancer Society! Great Job ladies!!

IMPORTANT PARENT WARNING

 

I received this information from Elementary Guidance Counselor Tutsy Asmus…

 

Many of our elementary and middle school students are playing a game called Roblox, dubbed the new Minecraft.  This article was sent to me today and I think it's worth warning parents about the dangers of this game where anyone can have direct access to our children via the game's chat feature.  There are ways to turn off the chat function, but parents need to be aware and make that modification.

I double checked the ratings of this game at Common Sense Media and this is just one example of a parent review of the game.  

" Most areas in ROBLOX are user-created, meaning that there will always, always be pornographic content, cursing, and violence that the moderators just can't catch as fast as it is put up. "

I want to thank Tutsy for sharing this information with us. Being a parent is very difficult and we need all the help we can get keeping our kids safe.

DADDY/DAUGHTER DANCE

 

A new group called the Eastwood Area Dads Group will be sponsoring a father/daughter dance on Friday March 10th at the Pemberville Legion. Please see the attached flyer for more information. You can also request access to their Facebook page by searching for Eastwood Area Dads Group. I applaud this group for coming together and supporting each other in what is becoming a more difficult age to be a parent.

 

EASTWOOD/WOOD COUNTY ESC PUBLIC PRESCHOOL REGISTRATION

 

The Wood County Preschool, operated in collaboration with the Wood County Educational Service Center, will soon begin pre-registration for the 2017-18 school year. The preschool programs are developmentally appropriate, play-based preschools supporting the Ohio Department of Education’s model curriculum. The Wood County Preschool Program is an inclusionary preschool program serving children who have delays in development and children who are typically developing. Tuition, based on a sliding-fee scale, is charged for children without special needs. Children attend preschool four days per week (Tuesday–Friday) during either a morning or an afternoon session.

 

On March 15, 2017, Pre-Registration Forms for toilet-trained, typically developing children will be mailed to the local elementary and the local library, or parents may obtain one by contacting Naomi at nstickles@wcesc.org or 419-354-9010, ext. 133. Parents who have questions regarding children who may have special needs can also contact Naomi.

 

We will again house the preschool programs at Pemberville Elementary School, and we will be exploring some possible expanded transportation options for typical students.
