Announcing - 'Parents for Charter Schools'
An organization linking charter school parents throughout Ohio
Parents will advocate with their 'voices and votes' as part of the newly created Parents for Charter Schools (PCS) -- a 501(c)(4) organization to empower parents with a specific focus on advocating and protecting Ohio public charter schools. PCS partners with the Ohio Coalition for Quality Education - a statewide leadership organization representing all of Ohio's public charter schools. 
The PCS network organizes and trains charter school parents from across the state with the purpose of developing Charter Parent Ambassadors (CPA) in every school. 
Parents for Charter Schools supports families by linking them with other parents to present a united and powerful 'voice' when working with state legislators, other policymakers and the media.
"There are more than 100,000 students being educated at charter schools across Ohio," said PCS Director Ron F. Adler. "Those parents are in the ideal position to know the individual needs of their children - and the best educational setting for them to feel safe and in which to flourish."
This parent-driven organization will offer families a 'voice' to: * protect their child's education; * defend their 'right to school choice'; * and, guard the future of their public charter school of choice. 
"My husband and I searched for an online school to fit the immediate medical circumstances of our oldest daughter's needs," explained Lori Spangler, a Charter Parent Ambassador from Newark Digital Academy (NDA).  "NDA is a perfect fit for Sophie and we are grateful. Protecting her education is crucial to us - and Parents for Charter Schools helps put our family back in charge of Sophie's education."
PCS seeks to break down barriers that often exist around Ohio's public charter schools.  Advocating at the grassroots level and directly to legislators, parents will fight against legislation and other regulatory 
changes that would hurt their charter school.

University of Akron students once again show their support for our school. They collected a generous amount of gloves, mittens, hats and scarves for our students.



We appreciate our partnership with the college as many students complete their field experience hours within our classrooms. A BIG "Thank You" to the grad students who took the time and dedication to collect items for our students to use during the cold, winter months.



Congratulations to Jeremiah John for winning the Principal's Award for the 3rd quarter! Due to his outstanding leadership and academic hardwork, it was an easy choice for Mrs. Burchfield to select such an outstanding student to represent the Principal Award expectations! Nicely done Mr. John! Your hardwork paid off...bonus...a fun lunch at Luigi's!

This year in preparation for the 3rd grade guarantee test, all third grade students and their parents were invited to a meeting in October. Intense test prep packets were given to all students that attended and were offered incentives for working hard and completing the packets on time, as well as earning a passing score. Two of our third graders took on the challenge and made it their goal to qualify for the incentives offered. Congratulations Antony Jones and Jamar McCray! You have demonstrated the qualities of a leader in your academics.
