NEWS
West Branch will make-up a day on Monday April 6, 2015

THE WEST BRANCH LOCAL SCHOOLS HAS NOW USED SIX SNOW DAYS. WE NOW HAVE TO MAKE-UP ONE DAY. PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDAR FOR MONDAY APRIL 6, 2015. SCHOOL WILL NOW BE IN SESSION THE DAY AFTER EASTER

 


Make Up Time for Days Missed

The West Branch Local Schools cannot go to hours until the 2016 - 2017 school year. Some school districts have transitioned to hours this year due to starting a new collective bargaining agreement. 

According to the Record Courrier (1/6/15)..."The change in state law from days to hours does not apply to school districts with collective bargaining agreements that were executed prior to July 1, 2014."

This means that the closure for 2/20/15 means another make-up day. 

 

 

Click below for the district calendar adotped in February 2014 for make-up details. The district can add June 4th or look at extending days.  For those districts on days, the state allots FIVE calamity days!

SCHOOL WILL BE CLOSED ON GOOD FRIDAY, APRIL 3, 2015 UNDER THE ADOPTED CALENDAR

Damascus Transverse Wall set to open on 2/19/15

A special thanks to the Damascus PIE for a donation of $4700 for a transverse climbing wall.  The wall will open with a Math and PE lesson on February 19, 2015.  The lesson will focus on physical well being and math.

 

First Grade students will be climbing the walls to demonstrate what they know about the attributes of 2D shapes.  PE Teacher Chris Tucker and the Damascus PIE recently installed a 4 panel Traverse Wall in the Gym. Groups of 4 students will analyze  the traverse wall filled with shape magnets and determine whether to sort the shapes into two or three groups based upon the defining attributes of the shapes.  Defining attributes include sides, angles, and vertices. If they use non-defining attributes, such as size or color, they will have to revise their plan and move the shapes again.

 

CHECK OUT OUR 2 BIG KIDS ON THE WALL!
