Hello Ravenna Staff:

I hope everyone has a restful or productive weekend!  Let’s “power through” the last quarter together for the benefit of our students!

Attached is information regarding Brent Webb, a 1993 graduate of Ravenna High School.  He is a professional  illusionist/mentalist who works in Las Vegas and aboard cruise ships worldwide.  He has offered to do a one night show at Ravenna High School on Thursday, April 11th at 7:00 p.m.  He will be donating half of the proceeds to our turf/track project.  Please support our former graduate, help out a worthy cause and bring your children for an evening of entertainment!  See you at the show!

Hello Ravenna Staff:

Being a results driven profession, this is what we are waiting for!  Please take the time during the upcoming O.A.A. testing periods to be positive with the children and encourage them as much as possible.  If every child does their very best, I am certain that their performance will be a positive reflection of our staff and school community.  Seeing gains in our district test scores is a big step in re-engaging our community.

Have a restful or productive weekend!

Hello Ravenna Staff:

I hope this message finds everyone on the back end of the OAA tests and feeling somewhat relieved.  I do understand the anxiety that the students as well as the teachers and administrators feel taking these mandated, high stakes test.  Remember that I too am a parent of two students, a husband of a teacher and also an administrator.  I’m with you and I get it!

We are all hopeful that the interventions and preparations that we have developed and implemented for our students this past 18 months will reflect a bump in our scores.

Try to relax and enjoy the beautiful weather this week and weekend!
