7th Grade Boys Basketball Makes History
MARCH 2012
Dear Parent/Guardian of Crestwood Students,
The safety of our students is our number one priority. You are probably aware that a school tragedy took place
Monday morning at Chardon High School. Our prayers are with the parents, students, and staff members of Chardon
who have been touched by these events.
It’s unfortunate this event has occurred so close to home, and this is a reminder to us why we are working towards
implementing a new safety program for our students and staff. With an increase in workplace violence and school
shootings over the past several years, we have been working to implement a safety program that will improve safety for
our students and staff. The program, A.L.I.C.E - Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate – is designed to enhance our
current “Lockdown” procedures.

7th Grade Boys Basketball Makes History
The Crestwood Middle School 7th Grade Boys Basketball team has never played in
the Championships, until this year. The team defeated Norton, 34-29 and upset first-seed
Stanton with a score of 33-30 to make it to the Championship but wasn’t able to pull out
the championship. The boys were defeated by Ravenna 34-27.
The boys had an exciting year with defeating Kent’s Stanton Middle School twice and
pulling off a thrilling come-from-behind victory over CVCA. The boy’s record was 10-6.

Defining and Redefining Excellence in Ohio’s Schools – PART 2
In last month’s edition of the Crestwood Comments, I began a conversation
on what it means to be an excellent school district in Ohio. As an excellent-rated
district, Crestwood Local Schools met and exceeded the state requirements. I
believe that by reviewing how well students are prepared for college and career
success once they leave high school, the community can truly understand how
special this district is.
In 2011, 69.2 percent of Crestwood students taking an Advanced Placement
exam passed. This accomplishment exceeds the 65.6 percent for the state of
Ohio and 60.2 percent globally. Additionally, we’ve seen the number of tests
Mr. Joseph Iacano
taken by Crestwood students increase from 67 in 2007 to 93 in 2011. Passing an
AP test earns students college credit at many universities and helps them better
prepare for the rigors of college course work. Categories for these AP tests include: Biology, Calculus,
English Literature and Composition, Music Theory, Physics, Psychology, Art Design, U.S. Government
and U.S. History.
Let’s now look at how well Crestwood Local Schools compares to the state of Ohio average and the
remaining districts in Portage County.
State of Ohio
Crestwood Local
Portage County
Portage County
Percent of Students
Attending College
in Ohio
Average ACT Score
Percent of Students

Courses in High
So what does all this tell us? First, Crestwood students are among the highest achieving students in
Portage County on state tests and in college readiness measures. This achievement is the result of having
dedicated and invested students, teachers, parents and staff. Second, while Crestwood’s scores are among
the best in Portage County, our effective operating millage remains the lowest of all the schools in the county.
As always, I’m inspired by the accomplishments of our students, and staff and the district will continue to
focus on the needs of every child, every day.

Mantua Knights of Columbus Announces
Free Throw Championship Winners
Eight Crestwood area boys and girls ages 10 to 14 were named
local champions of the 2012 Knights of Columbus Free Throw
Championship and have earned the right to compete at the district
level. Mantua Council # 3766 sponsored the local competition at
Crestwood Middle School on January 18.
Youngsters ages 10-14 were eligible to participate and each
contestant was allowed 15 free throw attempts in the contest. Ties
were settled by successive rounds of five free throws per contestant
until a winner emerged.
From 26 contestants the following winners are moving on with
an eye toward advancing to regional, state and international levels of
competition: Isaiah Patton, age 10, Ellie Cox, age 10, Logan Bailey,
age 11, Bianca Marinelli, age 11, Jordan Scott, age 12 (not pictured),
Taylor Lough, age 12, Brandon Nelson, age 13 and Robert Connors,
age 14.
Congratulations and good luck during the district competition at
St. Patrick’s in Kent on Feb 3, 2012!
Members of the Mantua Knights of Columbus would like to thank
Crestwood local schools, all participants, parents and volunteers for
another successful event.
Young Inventor Places as SemiFinalist in Regional Competition
Sixth-grader Olivia Fowler was recently
announced as a semi-finalist in the Shearer
Chips Perfection Contest. Students in
grades 4-8 had to create a new, useful
invention by repurposing empty Shearer’s
chip bags. Olivia caught the judges’ eyes
with her beautiful chip bag hair bows. By
placing in the top ten, she has already won
a $50 gift card.
Shearer’s Foods, Inc., Just Between
Friends, and The National Museum of
Education are offering the competition to
students in grades 4-8 from the state of
Ohio and from the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
area. Congratulations, Olivia.
Celebrating Perfection
At the end of each grading period, core teachers at Crestwood
Middle School administer common assessments, tests that are created
to measure student knowledge of the standards that were taught in the
preceding grading period. The 8th grade history common assessment
includes multiple choice, true/false and several extended response
questions. Students whose test scores indicate that concepts were not
mastered are provided with intervention.
Each grading period, to celebrate 8th grade Red Team students
who score perfectly on the common assessment, Mrs. Marfy holds a
pizza party. A 100% on the common assessment is really a cause for
celebration! On February 10, 2012, Mrs. Marfy hosted 21 students for
lunch. Mrs. Marfy was especially thrilled with the high number of qualifying students. Students enjoyed pizza from Italian
Garden. Invited students included: Alex Bowser, Brandon Caldwell, JJ Catcott, Morgan Faldowski, Drew Hill, Jake
Leiberth, Jeff Lorence, Cate McSwain, Alexis Mazey, Meghan McDermott, Shane Midgley, Robbie Richards, Anthony
Savoca, Matt Thompson, Anthony Bates, Courtney Capel, Sean Fejes, Romie Schweickert, Lauren Smith, Cole Faust,
Cameron Mordue, Romeo Nuti, and Chris Rector.
Intermediate School . . .
The Survey Says…
Fourth graders in Mrs. Ostrowske and Mrs. Engelhart’s
classes were learning how to collect and compile
information in various ways. Students generated their
own survey questions based on their interests such as
favorite types of music, favorite mythical creature, favorite
candy, etc. Classmates were surveyed, results tallied and
displayed in line graphs, pictographs, and bar graphs.
Students then discussed the effectiveness of providing
information in graph form versus paragraph form.

Interactive Reading with Raz-Kids
This year the Intermediate School is using
Raz-kids to motivate students to read. Students
in grades 3-5 have access to a wonderful world
of books through Raz-kids, an interactive online reading site for students to practice reading
fluency and comprehension. The students
can listen to a story, read a story out loud,
record themselves reading, and then take a
comprehension quiz. Each student has their own
account with books available based upon their
personal reading level. Students spend time
at home and school accessing this interactive
library. Teachers are able to monitor the
students’ progress and change their reading level
when necessary. Time spent logged into Razkids earns children points or stars to use for their
virtual Raz Rocket incentive and reward system.
Raz-kids has been a wonderful opportunity for
students to enjoy reading!

Hands-On with Textiles to Hands-On with I-Pads
Second Grade Class Uses Many Teaching Methods to Aide Student Learning
This winter Mrs. Grebb’s second grade class has engaged
in several activities incorporating different teaching and learning
Mrs. Amy McCoy, a retired Crestwood teacher, taught the
students how to crochet. They have been having a wonderful time
during indoor recess making bracelets, necklaces, and even a few
“mini” scarves.
In Social Studies, students researched their ancestors and
traditions. They then wrote reports and dressed paper dolls in the
authentic clothing of their ancestors.
The students have also been using I-pads and
I-pods to add to their learning. Students have used
a continent app to identify and learn the continents,
as well as apps that provide practice with basic math
facts, counting coins, and spelling.
February is National Heart Month!
Students in Mrs. Reece’s kindergarten class listen to their hearts as part of
a “Healthy Hearts” class taught by Mrs. Abruzino, School Nurse. Students
learned how the heart works, and how exercise, healthy eating and not
smoking help to keep the heart healthy.
Mrs. Skully, CPS art teacher, is teaching
a Reading-Art Enrichment Program called
ArtsRead. The program is for students in
kindergarten through second grade. The
cross curricular art classes integrate reading
and art. After students complete their book
they may sign up for a special art class
where they discuss the story and work
together to create an art project based on
the important themes of the book.
