This year’s recipients included Amber Wilson and Anne Cushman, second grade Damascus; Bridget Scofinsky, first grade Damascus; Allyson Burkey, second grade Damascus; McKenzie Wallace, High School English; and Kevin Buckley, High School Science.

Please see the attached video on how these teachers integrated the new technology and programs into their classrooms.

Harassment & Bullying Reports

Ohio Revised Code defines bullying or harassment as “intentional written, verbal, graphic, or physical act that a student or group of students exhibited toward other particular student more than once; and the behavior both causes mental or physical harm to the other student, and is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive that it creates an intimidating, threatening, or abusive educational environment for the other student.” ORC3313.666

 

Should your child experience this from another student or group of students, please be sure to contact the school office or website for a “Harassment/Bullying Incident Formal Report.”  Once submitted, this will be investigated thoroughly by an administrator.
