Dear Nordonia Middle School Families,
Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year. I hope you had an enjoyable summer spent with family and friends. The entire Nordonia Middle School family is very excited about this school year and we are looking forward to the great things that this school year will bring.
We are extremely excited about our 1:1 chrome book initiative that we will be rolling out this year. Our one-to-one initiative will provide opportunities for more enrichment, intervention, online modules, technology classes, and project based learning. We envision that this initiative will eventually provide more opportunities for extend online course options, opportunities for blended learning, increase in the ability for students and staff to share assignments and projects, and increased collaboration through the use of Google Classroom and Google Docs. Students will be able to take their Chromebooks home to provide a true 24/7 learning environment. The one-to-one environment will be more fascinating and engaging to many students. When students are engaged, they learn.
Our awesome staff will continue to provide the highest quality education to our students and now will have an additional resource to aid in doing this. By no means will these devices take the place of teacher instruction, but instead the use of the chrome books will enhance the already dynamic classroom instruction. Nordonia Middle School will strive to create true 21st century learners.
I am truly honored to serve the children and the families of Nordonia Middle School. I am looking forward to working together with each of you to make this an outstanding school year! Please feel free to contact me at any time if you ever have any questions or concerns. Go Knights!
