A Christmas Carol
Miss Stanton's language arts class. After reading the novel, A Christmas Carol, 6th grade students in Miss Stanton’s language arts classes attended a live performance based on the original story by Charles Dickens. Students visited the beautiful Valentine Theatre to see Scrooge, Marley, Tiny Tim, and a cast of nearly onehundred take the stage, with wonderful music, beautiful costumes, and a must-see performance! After the show, the next stop was PizzaPapalis, where lunch was enjoyed by all. Miss Stanton and her students were very grateful for all of the chaperones who were able to join us!
Message From The Treasurer's Office Jane Fruth, CPA Great news: Oregon City School taxpayers will pay less in school taxes during 2014! Last week, we received the effective millage updates from the Lucas County Auditors’ office for 2014 tax collections, showing that Oregon and Jerusalem township residents will pay 1.47% less in taxes ($26/1,000 of home value) than they paid in 2013. This reduction in taxes is the direct result of the refinancing of the bond debt. Estimates show that this refinancing will create additional reductions in coming years. The Oregon City School District continues to work toward outstanding academic achievement with efficient use of taxpayer resources.
As technology continues to develop, we often find ourselves struggling with issues that we may not have not anticipated. As school districts move into the world of instant information and social networking, we’re experiencing both the benefits and burdens of online communication. The vast majority of us use various technologies and applications on a daily basis. Many now carry smart phones and tablet devices to stay connected to email, text, Twitter, Facebook, and the Internet. Twitter and Facebook have become the mechanisms that many people rely on to get information and stay in touch. As a result, it only takes a few moments to send and receive information. Much of the information shared is positive and helpful. However, because of the perceived anonymity of those who post to these sites, people are now saying things that they may not otherwise say
to someone in person or even on the phone. Once an individual presses the send button, the comments that are written are now out there for the world to see. Quite often when negative comments are posted, Dr. Lonny J. Rivera others may feel Superintendent compelled to add to the discussion, which may take the situation to a whole new level. This is a problem that many school districts face, and, quite honestly, is very difficult to combat. So to that end, I am asking our community, parents, students, and staff to make a concerted effort to keep our posts accurate, positive, and courteous. Parents, please be sure to monitor what your child posts on these sites. Not only can
negative posts be detrimental to those being targeted, but they can be just as damaging to those who make the post. As a point of clarification, I am not trying to discourage those in our community from discussing problems; rather, I am asking that, if a problem does arise, please go directly to the source to get the issue resolved, and to please avoid using social media as the venue. As your superintendent, I am committed to do whatever it takes to make this district great. I am a person who is easily contacted and will readily meet to help resolve issues that may arise. With so much negativity taking place in our world, it is my desire to help create a safe haven for our kids, and for those who live in our wonderful community. As always, please do not hesitate to contact me at 419-693-0661 or by email lrivera@ oregoncs.org. Sincerely, Dr. Lonny J. Rivera Superintendent
Oregon City Schools Is A Straight A District On December 10, 2013, Oregon City Schools received word it had been awarded a $200,431 grant as part of the new Straight A Fund to spur innovation and cost savings in Ohio’s schools. The proposal was one of 24 programs serving more than 150 local districts and partners that the Straight A Governing Board nominated after a rigorous screening process. The recommendations went to the Ohio Controlling Board for final approval on Dec. 16. “There was tremendous competition to receive a Straight A grant,” Dr. Richard A. Ross, superintendent of public instruction, said. “All of Ohio will look to the winning proposals for ideas to reduce costs and transform learning in our state.” The $250 million Straight A Fund was created in the new state budget signed this summer by Gov. John R. Kasich. The Straight A Governing Board approved $88 million in grants. A second application period will be held in the spring. The grant enables Oregon City Schools’ teachers to collaborate with Bowling Green State University faculty to develop high quality assessments that
evaluate student growth with a high degree of reliability and validity. After receiving training from BGSU’s Center of Evaluation and Assessment Services (CAES) in test design, teachers in grades 3-11 will create and pilot assessments using Ohio’s new computer-based Instructional Improvement System (IIS). The CAES will then analyze the test and give teachers feedback on possible refinements. The tests will then be edited and made available to all teachers throughout the state, free of charge. The Straight A Fund is the largest, statewide, competitive innovation fund in the history of American education. The grants serve as startup funds for the most creative and forward-thinking ideas
coming from educators and their partners in the public and private sectors. Successful projects had to demonstrate that they would improve achievement, reduce spending, and target more resources to the classroom. Ohio’s school leaders enthusiastically responded to the fund, with 420 organizations submitting 570 applications. The first round of independent peer reviews determined if each grant application was fiscally sustainable. Applications were then rated by three more independent programmatic peer reviewers to determine if the proposal was innovative, had substantial value, and would make a lasting impact. The Department of Administrative Services selected both sets of scorers. After this programmatic review, approximately 30 grant advisors – professional educators and community and corporate leaders approved by the Governing Board – reviewed the scores. They issued a recommendation of the highest quality applications to the Governing Board who made the final recommendations to the Controlling Board.
Oregon City Schools Race To The Top Update Oregon City Schools began its Race to the Top (RttT) work during the 20102011 school year after being awarded the grant through a competitive grant process. Since then, the district has been focused on work in several key areas. Led by a district Transformation Team comprised of both teachers and administrators, the district has been addressing four focus areas required by the grant. The activities surrounding this work would not be possible without the more than $269,000 the grant provides. Internal and external communications continue to be a focus of our RttT Scope of Work. A universal system that individuals and groups can use to communicate with one another is essential to everyone’s awareness and understanding of work being done. The district now utilizes an “action agenda” format at meetings and has revised its nine “Norms of Collaboration” that guide discussion and task completion. Oracle articles communicate our work to the community, and monthly updates are reported during Oregon Board of Education meetings.
Teacher-based teams continue to align instruction and materials to Ohio’s New Learning Standards. Student-friendly learning targets are now displayed in classrooms, and formative assessment strategies are being incorporated into everyday instruction. Common assessments and student learning objectives are being designed across the district to help students and teachers gauge progress for individual students, grade levels, special subject areas, buildings, and the district as a whole. Last March, Oregon City Schools was chosen to be a pilot for Ohio’s RttT project, the Instructional Improvement System or IIS. We were one of the first districts in the state to begin program implementation. This new tool provides web-based access to resources such as lesson plans, video and web page links, assessment creation and administration processes, data analysis based on learning standard mastery, and connections to vital student information. Our Race to the Top initiative has allowed Oregon City Schools to continue
its implementation of the Resident Educator Program to support new teachers through their first four years of teaching. A lead teacher is available to provide instructional mentoring to every teacher in the district. An academic achievement coach at the high school and curriculum coach at the intermediate school are also providing support to areas that have been determined by the District Leadership Team that need extra support from teacher leaders. In this final year, we’re also focusing on the first year implementation of the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System, which supports continual student growth and reflects legislative mandates. From August until the end of November, professional development and technical support were provided to two-thirds of the entire teaching staff to facilitate their use of student learning objectives, or SLOs, for measuring student growth. If you would like additional information about our RttT work, please feel free to call our district office at 419.693.0661.

The Buddy Bench
Who Is Your Favorite Author?
Pictured is Mrs. Wojciechowski's 2nd grade class on the Buddy Bench. Inspired by an idea from a fellow school counselor and after similar stories making national news, Jerusalem Elementary decided to jump on the band wagon…or should I say jump on the bench! We have implemented a new way to foster friendships and combat loneliness at recess with the creation of the “Buddy Bench,” where students who may not have a friend to play with at recess, or just wants to make new friends can go and find friends. All students are encouraged to periodically look at the bench during recess to check and see if there are any students who are in need of a playmate. Reminding our students of our positive behavior initiative to be a “Bucket Filler,” they exemplify bucket filling behavior by including others in play each and every day. A huge thank you to Karen Staudinger and her husband for taking their time over winter break to create our buddy bench sign, which hangs over the bench, a continuous reminder to students that they always have a place to go to make new friends.
A Veteran's Tribute The fourth grade students at Coy Elementary once again honored veterans at their annual Veterans’ Day Tribute. Families, guests and veterans were invited to share in the moving celebration. Members of the Christ-Dunberger American Legion posted and retrieved the colors for the ceremony. The meaning of the United States flag was explained by the school counselor, Mrs. Findsen, and the students spoke about the Pledge of Allegiance and its meaning. One of the most wonderful parts of this yearly event is that students are asked to invite a veteran they know to attend the tribute. Each veteran is then introduced by their host student, who gives a short history of their veteran’s background and years of service. In addition, Mr. Jeff Ziviski, OCS board member and veteran, shared “From a Veteran’s Perspective.” Many patriotic songs were sung by the students, lead by music teacher, Mrs. Hall. The event ended with a small reception for the veterans. The tribute was a wonderful opportunity for us all to remember that our freedom is because of the sacrifice of our many service people.

Middle: Eighth grader Teytem Rew's author responded right away to her request for a picture via e-mail and said that he would send her a couple of books instead since the holidays were nearing. Chris Crutcher autographed two books, including his newest release. Right: Seventh grader Lucas Roach received the book, Plunked, autographed by Michael Northrop. This is the book that Luke picked up off of the classroom library shelf one day to search for an author to study. The Fassett Junior High School gifted and talented students are completing a year-long author study in their language arts classes. During the first quarter, students completed extensive research of authors and books to decide which three authors they would most enjoy in the coming months. Students then submitted persuasive proposals of those three authors. They had to find two books for each author that they would like to read, information about the authors, and about their genres. Once the students found out which author was accepted, they could begin reading their books. This task was com-
Branden Nyers defeated 146 classmates and a few instructors to win Mr. Dunbar’s stock contest. Branden led most of the way, turning a $10,000 starting amount into $17,763.75 in 4 months. It was a couple of penny stocks that tripled, and by October, Branden cashed out, and challengers could not catch him. With the market so bullish, over 100 student made money with their $10,000. Branden plans to meet with Warren Buffett soon to discuss a merger.
fifty percent of the students got responses, with an occasional autographed book or photo. Once, a student received a lengthy personal letter with a box full of autographed copies of the author’s novel. This year, we’ve already had four packages delivered with books inside! The responses are trickling in, and the students are so delighted when they have mail. The next step is the expository essay about the authors, and presentations with displays. The most fun for some of the students is the author fair which will happen during fourth quarter. Watch for the invitation in the next Oracle.

pleted during the previous quarter. In addition, if a student was studying an author who is deceased, the student participated in a public, academic social media site to blog about their literary analysis of the books they selected, interacting with other students about the same books. Students whose authors are living wrote a letter to the author, telling him or her about their projects, and their opinions of the books they are reading. In addition, they asked the authors questions and requested responses that included something they could use in their displays for the author fair. In past years of this project, about

The Ohio Department of Education, Office of Race to the Top, asked students to write and record a video under 55 seconds providing a response to ONE of the following questions: What makes learning exciting to you? 1. How does a good teacher help you to be successful?
2. Why do you think it’s important to have a good teacher? 3. Have you ever had a teacher who helped you to overcome an obstacle? 4. How has a teacher helped you understand the connection between what you are learning in school and the job you want to have when you grow up? Congratulations to the students in
Miss Stanton’s 5th and 6th grade gifted language arts classes! All students submitted a response, but these students had their videos chosen. Winning video submissions were showcased to more than 2,500 education leaders during Ohio’s Annual Statewide Education Conference and the final video can be viewed at this link: goo.gl/4W186H Way to go!
Words Are Delicious!

Top Left: Miss Marciniak whips up a batch of fresh "synonym" buns. Top Right: A bulletin board of freshly baked "synonym" buns. Bottom Left: Miss Marciniak's apprentice chefs. Bottom Right: Creating "synonym" buns requires skill. As children trot off to school each day, have you ever wondered how they learn the many things they learn? Did you ever consider the vast amount of information children absorb? Do you think to yourself, “How do their teachers get their attention long enough to deliver the lesson?” We have many talented and creative teachers in Oregon Schools. Coy Elementary School’s Miss. Marciniak is just one of them, and in November, she had her
first graders “Baking up some Synonym Buns” in their classroom. Playing on the words “cinnamon” and “synonym,” Miss. Marciniak provided each of her first grade bakers with their own bona fide chef’s hat to help them get in the spirit. Her hallway bulletin board was adorned with a huge oven and big paper cinnamon buns. Miss. Marciniak, herself, was decked out in her best apron as head baker. She helped her students prepare synonym buns to display around
the oven. When it comes to remembering, we retain memories that are both vivid and exciting. These first graders learned in a memorable way that synonyms are words that have nearly the same meaning. They expanded their vocabularies by writing synonyms on their cinnamon buns. Kudos to Miss M. for engaging her students in such a fun and tasty way!
Do Wind Turbines Kill Birds And Bats? Question: Do wind turbines kill birds or bats? Answer: Very few. according to studies at Clay High School, 1 megawatt turbine.
The wind turbine located at Clay High School.
We are very concerned about wildlife impact. That’s why we spent over 140 hours of independent research efforts to answer this question. Since Lake Erie is at a bird migration sensitive area, and since we also are located at a very windy geographical location, this question is worthy of extended studies. Using Ohio Department of Natural Resources protocol, a University of Toledo intern, Bryce Schide, has collected extensive data, including during the heaviest bird migration months. Here are the findings: One red bat was found at the Eisenhower turbines. One hoary bat was found at the Clay High wind turbine. One Horned Lark (ground flying bird) was found at the Clay High wind turbine
(by a CHS student, Michael Ummel, during football practice). Three other birds were found, but they were outside the study radius of the impact zone. This tells us that birds die of natural causes independent of turbines. The bird and two bat fatalities if, indeed, were from the turbine, these fatalities are very close to the national average of one bird per 1 megawatt, since we produced over 2,000,000 kilowatt hours of electrical production with our three turbine blades. Of course, more studies over longer periods of time are needed to be absolutely sure of this value. For now, we have verified that these wind turbines are not a significant threat to wildlife. A far greater concern is the threat of increasing global temperatures accelerated by greenhouse gas. This climate change is already disrupting ecological balances. Wind energy is a “powerful” step in the direction of a safe and sustainable future.
Anyone Up For A Mini-Cheer?
Forty-two students competed in the Fassett Junior High School Spelling Bee in December in front of their peers and families. To qualify for the bee, students completed a written spelling bee qualifying test in their language arts classes. The top twenty-five spellers in each grade then qualified to compete in the school bee. Marc Halley, eighth grade, is the champion speller for FJHS, and Nicolas McNeal, seventh grade, earned second place. Kaden Havener, seventh grade, won third place. Marc, Nick and Kaden will represent Fassett Junior High School in the 2014 Lucas County Area Spelling Bee at the Maumee Indoor Theater on Tuesday, February 4, at 7:00. The top winners of that bee will compete in The Blade Championship Bee in March. The top student from that bee will compete at the Scripps National Bee in Washington, DC.
Toy & Canned Food Drive The Volunteer Focus Group and Integrated Machining classes would like to thank the entire Clay Family -including students, parents and staff, for their generosity and kindness with the toy drive and canned food drive. With their generosity, we were able to help provide meals for needy families in Oregon and Jerusalem Township, as well as to help make Christmas special for many youngsters with toys and other presents. Mrs. Soncrant, Mrs. Walendzak, and Mr. Spallino, the advisors of Volunteer Focus, and Integrated Machining teacher, are proud of the efforts, generosity, and kindness of everyone involved. The experience of assisting those in need is heartwarming. We are very lucky to be a part of this great group of students.
Helping Those In Need With the help of our students, parents, and staff, Fassett Jr. High met its lofty goal of 3,000 canned good items for our contribution toward the Oregon Christmas Basket Program. It looked like the back of the pick-up truck was full! In addition, $750.00 was donated, money raised from the Student Council dance, and Ugly Sweater contest. We hope that these contributions made some local families days a little merrier, and brighter. Students, parents, and staff were generous. Fassett thanks them for their support

For the second year in a row, Volunteer Focus members offered a trick or treat event for the youngsters during the CHS Student Government’s Haunted Hallways. While some students braved
the “scare floors,” their younger siblings were able to enjoy some festivities, too, as they made their way around the room trick or treating with friendly ghosts, goblins, witches, mummies, and skeletons.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles even made an appearance this year! After trick or treating, youngsters were able to make crafts sponsored by CHS Student Government. Thanks to the students, parents,
and board members who donated candy and volunteered their time to make this event a huge success!
"OWL Always Be Your Friend!" Students at Starr School learned about friendship during “OWL Always Be Your Friend! Week” in November. Each day, students wore a specific color that related to a friendship quality they were studying, such as thoughtfulness, caring, listening, loyalty, and acceptance. Students also used oil pastels to make “Friendship Owls” to remind them of the special week!

Left: Members of Volunteer Focus, and Strive joined forces to bake the cookies for the Cookie Walk. Right: Over 30 types of cookies were baked. Thank you to everyone who came to The Second Annual Cookie Walk at Clay High School. You helped to make this a success. The students from Volunteer Focus and STRIVE worked hard in baking
over 30 different kinds of cookies. Participants left with box(es) of assorted, homemade Christmas cookies for the holidays, and never had to dirty their kitchens. Leftovers from the Cookie Walk were do-
nated to Little Sisters of the Poor. We are planning to host the Cookie Walk again next year, and we hope to see you there.
