Dear Families,

Welcome to kindergarten! I would like to welcome all of our new families to West Park Elementary
School! We are “kindergarten central” for the Ravenna School District. It has been a wonderful summer however, we are excited that school is starting. We look forward to some type of “normalcy” for the upcoming school year. Your child’s first year in school will bring many wonderful and challenging opportunities to them. As educators, our goal is to help your child become independent, life-long learners. Not only do we believe that ALL children can learn, but we also believe that ALL children want to learn. We want to maintain an “I can” and “I will try” attitude. This positive attitude promotes success and happiness. The entire staff is thrilled to have our new students begin an incredible journey with us.

Thank you for choosing West Park School to begin your child’s educational experience.
First, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Frank Sciarabba, and I am the principal of West Park Elementary School. This is my 7th year as principal. I am eager to get the school year started! Thank you for allowing us to work with your children. There are many great things happening at West Park School. The first newsletter has many reminders and notifications. Please take the time to read through the information, and call or email the office if you have any questions. Regular attendance at school will be a key factor in your child’s educational success. Throughout the
school year we will be emphasizing the importance of consistent attendance at school. Our goal for this school year is to decrease chronic absenteeism at West Park. Many motivational ideas and strategies will be implemented throughout the year in order to make this happen. We will need your help and support in achieving our goal.

This is going to be a great year at West Park School! Please continue to look for school newsletters at the beginning of each month. They will keep you informed of all the important information and exciting events occurring at our school. Please know that you can contact the office with any questions or concerns by calling 330-297-1744.

Let’s have a great year together!

Sincerely,
Frank Sciarabba, Principal
