Principal Letter

A Message From Principal Doslak
Posted on 05/07/2021

Anne T. Case CLC Students & Families,

As this letter is being written, we have 20 days left in the school year.  The last day for students is June 3!  While there is only a short amount of time left, there is a lot going on with Case, our students, our staff, and our community.  Two things going on with our students currently are:

  1. Our 5th graders are planning and creating their IB culminating projects/presentations for Exhibition.  The students will create a Google Site to share all the work they’ve done, not just this year, but over their entire PYP career.  The site will be released the last week of school for everyone to be able to view.

  2. Our 3rd graders are currently observing “How the World Works” through participating in Akron Public Schools’ ChickQuest.  To follow the progress of our chicks, feel free to watch at

Our staff, like our students, are continuing to experience new and unique opportunities.  May 10-12 our staff will (has) go through the IB Evaluation process.  During the 3 days, our staff will be interviewed and observed by staff from International Baccalaureate.  Once our evaluation is complete, IBO will give Case feedback, and we fully expect to continue our role as trailblazers within the district and be the first elementary school in the district to be reauthorized as an IB World School!  

Something that our students and staff have jointly learned and participated in this year is our new PBIS program.  PBIS both teaches students the right way to do things AND rewards them for it.  Using software Case has purchased we are able to track how many times students/classes/grades are caught doing the right thing, and then students are able to use points, electronically assigned to them, to go shopping in our Case PBIS Store.  We want to hear from our families about what you think of the climate at our building(s) too; please complete a short survey at

We know that while our students and staff are what most people think of when they think of Anne T. Case CLC, we couldn’t grow and develop without our community and families.  Two ways we will continue to support and unite all members of our Case community are through our PTA and our family liaison, Ms. Eck.  You can  stay up-to-date and engaged with our PTA through their site on Facebook (search Anne T Case), and please consider becoming a member of PTA in the future!  You can also learn about additional community events and supports through Ms. Eck’s Family Liaison Resource Page:

Last but not least, Akron Public Schools have spent months planning a variety of Summer offerings for students.  Please review the information included with interim reports and/or visit the district’s Summer Connected Learning site at AND PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE spread the word that APS KG Registration is open now!

Thank you,

Matthew Doslak Grace Tome
