Education

Bay Village Schools Educate the “Whole Child” Bay Village residents place a high value on educating the “whole child.” At the Bay Village Schools, we take those core courses of math, science, social studies and language arts very seriously. At the same time, music, art, foreign language, physical education and other offerings that address the learning and development of our children are extremely important to us.

Bay Middle School students, staff and parents rake the leaves for hundreds of elderly and disabled homeowners in Bay Village every single year in their Annual Rake Out. The school marked its 22nd year for the service project in 2016.

Of course, we are proud that our students excel on regional, state and national levels in areas measured by state report cards and college entrance exams. Another source of pride is being named a Best Music Education Community in America since 2003 for our K-12 music program. We celebrate our student artists annually as they win accolades in local, regional and national art competitions.

School spirit is a priority at Bay High School. It’s One Rocket Nation mantra reminds students that they are all stronger when working together!

The Northwest Suburbs Magazine & Community Guide | 2017-18


Turnout for our athletic events is a strong indicator of support for the lessons in character, discipline and school pride that students derive from these competitions and training. Parent involvement at every level is high – every school is a PTA School of Excellence for meaningful schoolhome engagement. In addition, our community and others benefit from thousands of dollars and service hours provided by our students as they learn the importance of giving back. Add technology, safety, leadership and practical life skills – our schools provide the instruction and experiences to make each child’s K-12 experience one of preparation for life in every area, to keep every door to opportunity open as long as possible, and to encourage a love of learning and exploration that will last a lifetime.

Education

Experience the Fairview Advantage There is an undeniable mystique about Fairview Park. Some may say it’s the hidden gem of the west side. Our community has the many benefits of being part of a vibrant metropolitan area, yet possesses a small town quality that many families seek when searching for a place to call home. And a great community deserves great schools. That is why we developed a comprehensive strategic plan that will guide our work over the coming years. Using multiple surveys, focus groups, community forums and a broad communitybased advisory group and steering committee, we realigned our mission and vision and created focused goals and action plans to make our school district a leader of innovation and success. As a key facet of this work, our District Leadership Team researched, defined and set in motion the “Fairview Advantage,” a unique set of skills and attributes that set our students above the rest as they prepare for success in school and beyond. Nine areas of focus serve as a framework for student success: Create, Innovate, Investigate, Collaborate, Communicate, Solve Problems, Lead, Reflect, and Serve.

One key tool to deliver the Fairview Advantage is the Summit Personalized Learning program. In the summer of 2016, Fairview Park City Schools was selected to participate in this elite national program which was developed by teachers from Summit Public Schools in the San Francisco Bay area with technical assistance from Facebook engineers. The program helps students set both short and long-term goals (while tracking progress towards these goals), prioritize their work, learn content at their own pace,

10

The Northwest Suburbs Magazine & Community Guide | 2017-18

complete deeper learning projects that apply real-world situations, and reflect on their learning. Teachers are able to better customize instruction to meet individual students’ needs and interests, including utilizing a variety of tools, many hands-on. This approach is supported by technology that allows both students and teachers to create and carry out individual learning plans and track progress towards goals. With a clear vision of being “a community united, empowering each other to learn differently, care deeply, and aspire to excellence” we have taken a bold and dynamic step forward to capture the imagination and ignite the passion for learning in each student from daycare to diploma.


At the Rocky River City School District, Parents are Vital The Rocky River City School District provides 2,700 students in grades K-12 with the benefits of a small-school setting and all the resources of a larger school district. The District was again ranked in the prestigious Top Ten List of Cleveland Area Schools in the June 2016 issue of Cleveland Magazine. Long known for its tradition of academic quality, the Rocky River City School District strives to meet its mission: Globally Competitive, Exceptional Opportunities, Caring Environment and Successful Students. Last year over 92 percent of high school graduates continued on to colleges or universities across the country. The National Merit Scholarship Corporation recognized 16 seniors this year; 8 National Merit Semifinalists and 8 National Merit Commended Students. Parent organizations are a vital part of the Rocky River City School District.

Rocky River PTA Council holds an annual fundraising dinner during homecoming and supports the work of the individual PTA units. Each building has a PTA whose mission is to serve as a powerful voice for all children, a relevant resource for families and communities, and a strong advocate for the education and well-being of every child. The Rocky River Student Activities Boosters is a tax-exempt organization whose mission is to provide support to co-curricular activities at Rocky River Middle School and High School, including academic and peer organizations, sports, music, and theater. The Rocky River Education Foundation is a non-profit, 501(c) (3) corporation directed by a Board of Trustees organized for the purpose of soliciting contributions to fund teacher grants in the school district.

Education

Moving Westlake Forward Our schools are working hard every day to prepare students for their futures, and a key component of that process involves understanding where our community and the global community is heading. Staying on top of global workforce and higher education changes is complicated, and

we subscribe to the notion that “it takes a village.” To that end, a strategic planning committee comprised of Westlake leaders from business, civic, higher education and clergy, along with parents and school officials, helped set

the course for our schools for the next three to five years. The group expanded on the work completed by the original 20/20 Vision Committee. The Strategic Planning Committee reviewed academic and community research; discussed global and

The #1 Secret to your fitness success is ACCOUNTABILITY! Use your day-timer to set appointments for exercise – and then stick to them. You wouldn’t miss a business meeting or client appointment, would you? So don’t miss your exercise appointment with yourself. Nothing is more important than your health. Nothing. Everything else will crumble around you if your health goes south. So, make your exercise appointments a priority. If you find it difficult to keep these appointments, then consider hiring a personal trainer who will hold you accountable. When you have money invested, and someone waiting for you to show up – you are much more likely to actually show up!

In a recent study at Virginia Polytechnic University, researchers divided people starting a walking program into two groups. Every week, each individual in one group got a phone call asking how their exercise program was coming along; the other group got no calls. At the end of 24 weeks, 45% of the individuals who got the phone calls were still walking compared to just 2% who did not receive calls. The results show that weekly accountability increases the likelihood of sticking to your exercise program by 2200%!

Transitioning into a Senior Living Facility The decision to move a loved one to a senior living

facility isn’t easy. Change is difficult in any situation, especially when it involves making decisions for someone you love who may not fully embrace, understand and accept the situation. With many options and information available today regarding senior care, a well-planned process can make the decision easier on all parties involved. Making the transition easier starts by being upfront and honest. Include your loved one in the decision making process so that they feel in control and empowered. If possible, have the conversation about senior care before the need arises. Prepare information about different housing

options available in your community. Be sure to ask permission to have the discussion and choose the right time and place in which to have the conversation. Once you’ve selected a home for your loved one, become as involved as necessary in order to resolve concerns and make things as comfortable as possible for them. Visit as often as you can and talk to the staff about any concerns or questions you may have. Staying involved and working as a team will help all of you reach a comfort level that will benefit the entire family.

Homes & Real Estate

Landscaping for Curb Appeal Creating curb appeal is one of those landscaping

areas where you want your front yard to stand out from surrounding yards without being totally out-of-place with the rest of the neighborhood. To get curb appeal, you need to have color, form, line, texture, scale, and focal points by using a variety plants, hardscape, and water features. Annuals provide bright colors in the spring, throughout the summer and are great for filling in gaps in your garden. Evergreens provide green all year long, so in the winter your beds and your yard don’t look so bare. Perennials give a variety of color throughout spring, summer, and fall. When planting, you want them layered and staggered to give some contrast, form of repetition and balance to provide unity.

The Northwest Suburbs Magazine & Community Guide | 2017-18

Hardscapes, meaning walkways, patios, decks, arbors, and decorative fencing, give a nice welcoming feeling. Water Features offer nice focal points, not only through their visual appearance but by the nice smooth and relaxing sounds they provide.

Making Smart Moves Buying or selling a home is often the biggest decision a person will make in their lifetime. Here are a few suggestions to help when beginning your selling process. Set the stage as first impressions are very important. Make sure your property is clean and neat, inside and out. When people drive up to your home, the first impression can make or break the sale. Peeling paint, uncut lawns and shrubbery are a definite no-no. It goes without saying that the interior of your home should be clean, neat and freshly painted, if necessary or possible. Walls should be clean, neutral and uncluttered. Well-lit homes show better. Wash all of the windows, floors and appliances; make sure drapes are clean and opened to let in natural light. De-clutter surfaces and remove personal items from around the house. Spending a small amount of money to "stage" your house can help you get a higher price in the long run, you want buyers to envision themselves living there so let your house be the haven they fall in love with! Price your property correctly for your neighborhood and not what you would like to get. No matter what the market conditions are, a realistic price for your area will get your home sold in a reasonable time-frame. Talk with a real estate agent that has experience. The realtor will review recently sold properties, current listings and assist in establishing a price that will sell your home as quickly as the current market conditions will allow. For all of your real estate needs, contact Renee Musat at Keller Williams Greater Cleveland West at 440-342-0032, ReneeMusat@cox.net.

And through it all, Bay Village has remained a desirable, tight-knit, caring community with wonderfully talented residents.
