Case CLC Families,

This letter is being written on the evening of our second quarter conferences.  If you missed conferences, please remember that your student’s teachers are available daily from 2:15-3:15 during office hours, and you should always feel free to reach out to them with questions or concerns about learning.  For more general questions about Anne T Case CLC or Akron Public Schools, remember that you can always go to our websites:

If you have been eavesdropping on Ms. Tome and Mr. Doslak’s daily announcements, you have probably heard our recent push dealing with attendance; while we hope every student and family understands and supports the benefits of attending school everyday, we have come up with a number of ways to reward that positive behavior.  Last month, we were able to hand out yard signs and free pizza coupons to 83 students who had perfect attendance since the start of the year.  In December and January we will be having weekly drawings for one gentleman and one lady with weekly perfect attendance, at the end of January, we will be having a drawing for some big ticket items (ex: bicycles) to be given away to students that had perfect attendance over these 2 months.

Another topic we as a school have been continuing to push is PBIS.  For those of you that may still not be familiar with the purpose of PBIS, we would like to help you understand so that you can support the program at home.  The simplest way to explain PBIS is to say it is teaching students positive behaviors.  We do not expect students to know everything about Math or Language Arts until we teach them and offer them support; PBIS is the process by which we teach and support students as they learn what Case CLC’s behavior expectations are.  While each classroom may have unique expectations for specific behaviors, a sample of a lesson teaching students about classroom behavior created by our PBIS team is available at the following link:

This week was also the start of our iReady Winter Diagnostic.  The iReady program is one way we track students’ growth and ability; please make sure that your student is completing their iReady assessment on their own and taking the diagnostic seriously.  For more information about iReady and “productive struggle”, we have created this short informative video:
