WHAT’S HAPPENING IN OUR DISTRICT?

Message from Superintendent Dr. Laura Hebert – January 23, 2022

Hello, this is Laura Hebert, Superintendent of the Ravenna School District.  We return to in-person, face-to-face learning tomorrow, Monday, January 24th and we are so excited to see you!  As a community of learners you have handled remote learning with resilience and flexibility, and have remained accountable and engaged throughout the two weeks.  We are proud of your ability to adapt to the change, but are glad that we are returning to normal tomorrow.

When you return tomorrow, remember that masks are required while in school and on the bus.  Continue to social distance when and where possible, and wash or sanitize your hands frequently.  If you don’t feel well,stay home – we want to make sure to do all we can to keep the transmission numbers low.  Keep this mantra in mind: mask up, back up, wash up!​​​​​​​

See you tomorrow!

TEAM RAVENNA STAFF GAME CHANGER

At the roots of a strong school district are the exceptional faculty and staff and committed base of community supporters. The Ravenna School District is fortunate to have both!

To help recognize the game-changing work – inside and outside of schools – that our outstanding staff members do on a daily basis, we are implementing monthly recognition opportunities that celebrate Team Ravenna members who go above and beyond. Team Ravenna’s Game Changers are those who step up to meet the needs of our students, offer support and access to resources to colleagues, provide an extra layer of support for families outside the classroom, who are innovative and empathetic educators, and who generally make a positive and sometimes life changing difference in the lives of our students, families and their colleagues.

Each month the Superintendent chooses staff members from across the district to be recognized for outstanding service.

Congratulations to the TEAM RAVENNA STAFF GAME CHANGER AWARD WINNERS for December!!!

TEAM RAVENNA STUDENT GAME CHANGER

The Ravenna School District is pleased to announce the Student Game Changer initiative.  Similar to the Game Changer initiative for faculty and staff, we would like to recognize those students, K-12, who are consistently Responsible, Respectful and In Control.  It may be the student who tries the hardest and always turns in work.  Or the student who turns in money that was found on the floor.  Or the student who rarely talks back.  Or, it could be the student who consistently says please and thank you in the line at lunch/breakfast or always behaves on the bus.  There are so many ways our students demonstrate what it means to be a Ravenna Raven and it is our pleasure to recognize them each month!  WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU!

Congratulations to the TEAM RAVENNA STUDENT GAME CHANGER AWARD WINNERS for January!!!

On October 21, 2021 the Task Force met virtually to participate in professional development.  This workshop, hosted by Kent State University professors Dr. Gooden and Dr. Porter, explored how our personal experiences inform our daily work. With that in mind, we examined current policies and procedures related to curriculum, hiring and retention, and professional development.  Our goal continues to be to create a sustainable plan that will engage students, faculty, and community members to examine ways to ensure everyone feels heard and represented in our district.

Happy Holidays from Ravenna School District! We hope today is restful and joyful for all of our students and families!
Are you in the holiday spirit yet?! Our students did a great job of getting excited for the holidays last week! ☃🎄
"Time shared with friends is the most magical of all."  We love this quote spotted on an RSH door! We hope you are able to spend time with the people you love during break!
The Ravenna Boys Varsity Bowling Team won big over the Woodridge Bulldogs last week! Ravenna had regular games of 1007 and 1074 and a bakers set of 553 to beat the Bulldogs by an astounding 454 pins. For the third week in a row, the Ravens have set a school record for a match series.  Grayson Speck led the Ravens with a school record 512 with games of 245 and 267. Parker Addison added a 450 series (224,226) and Kevin Robbins had a 439 (213, 226). Way to go boys!  The Ravens get a break for the holidays and will return on January 6 with an away match against Streetsboro.
Looking to stay active over break? 'Get Fit as a Family' with this fun calendar the Ravenna School District Willyard Elementary School staff put together! 💪🏃‍♂️
