8th Grade Washinton D.C. Trip Will Take Place
We are happy to inform you that our eighth-grade field trip to Washington, D.C. is still going to take place May 9-11.  Our rooms at the Hyatt Regency Dulles Hotel in Herndon, Virginia for our students and chaperones are secured. Additionally, Lakefront Lines is honoring the contract they had with Discovery Tours for our six buses, because it was paid in full.  We are working with Nowak Tours of Valley City and have confirmed the travel itinerary for our three-day field trip. This will include all of the various memorials and museums, wreath laying at Arlington National Cemetery, dinner/dance on the second night, and meals.

I will follow-up in the coming days with a video message to all our parents to review the itinerary and plans that were originally discussed at our parent meeting on April 17.  

The North Royalton Board of Education supports this educational and meaningful opportunity for our children and wants parents to be assured there will be no additional costs for this trip.  Also, North Royalton City Schools wants to give thanks to Nowak Tours for helping us make this trip a reality for students in less than a 24-hour time period. Additionally, thank you to Lakefront Lines for honoring the transportation contract.  This trip would have been canceled without the help of Nowak Tours and Lakefront Lines!
 
Incoming 5th Grade Parent Meeting
There will be an informative meeting on Monday, May 7, 2018, at 6:30 PM in the Middle School Purple Gym.  I will introduce you to the middle level program and share the plans for the 2018-2019 school year.  If you have any questions please feel free to contact the Middle School office.

I look forward to seeing you there.
 
Update on 8th Grade Washington D.C. Trip
We would like to update you on what we have done regarding our eighth-grade Washington, D.C. field trip scheduled for 
May 9-11.

Superintendent Greg Gurka and I traveled to Discovery Tours headquarters in Mayfield Village this morning in an attempt to talk with someone face-to-face since our phone conversations were unsuccessful.  The building was not occupied.

We have worked directly with the Hyatt Regency Dulles Hotel to secure our rooms, although the hotel did not receive payment for these rooms.  We also called the bus company and they told us the buses are paid for but the contract is through Discovery Tours. We are still determining if the bus company will honor that contract and we will have use of that for transportation.  In addition, we are exploring a number of options to see if it is possible to provide a meaningful experience for our students while they are in our nation's capital. There are many factors involved with this situation and we promise to keep you updated as we have more details.  Thank you for your continued patience.
 
Discovery Tours 8th Grade Washington D.C. Trip
We wanted you to be aware that we are in contact with Discovery Tours regarding our upcoming eighth-grade trip to Washington, D.C.  Mentor Public Schools had to cancel their trip because the company could not receive final confirmation on the hotel rooms it booked for the students. In addition to our school, there are several other schools who have upcoming trips booked through this same company.
 
 As soon as we have more information, we will be back in contact with you. I know how frustrating and concerning this may be for you, and especially your child.  We are equally upset about this situation.  
 
 
AIR State Tests
Math and science state testing starts next week.  All students will take Part I of the math test on Tuesday and Part II on Wednesday.  Students in grades 5 and 8 will take the science test on Thursday.  Outside of the statewide glitch with the AIR platform, the first round of testing went extremely well and I am sure our kids did a great job.  I expect that they will do just as good next week!
 
AIR Platform Issues Resolved
The Ohio Department of Education notified and assured us that the issues that were experienced across the state today are resolved.  Consequently, we will plan for all students to take Part II of the ELA/Reading test on Thursday, April 19th.
