2015-2016 End of Year Report

The end of the year seemed to fly by and here we are after school is out!  As part of the items I take care of at the end of the year, I put together an End of Year Annual Report.

The 2015 - 2016 school year was a great year!  Media Services held many programs and provided many resources to our students and staff.  It has also been a great first year, for me, at Solon.  Can't wait to see what next year brings!

Hour of Code Night was a Success!

What can you do in an hour?  Well, several students and families spent an hour of their time at Lakeview Elementary during our Hour of Code Night!  We visited several different Hour of Code sites and apps, as well as explored Spheros (received by Lakeview teachers through a Solon Education Foundation grant).  We had a great turnout and a lot of fun!



Was not able to make it to the event?  You can code anytime.  Here is a link to an activity page, as well as the poster below.  Feel free to explore and dive into coding.  Anyone at any age can learn to code.

Learning to Code!

Third and fourth grade students at Lakeview have been working with coding and learning how to code.  We have been working through the code.org courses.


They have really grasped on to the concept.  It is exciting to see them work through the different problems and problem-solving through the code they have written to find the correct solution.


Save the date!  We are having an Hour of Code night February 4th from 6:30 - 7:30 at the Lakeview Media Center.  We will spend the hour writing code and learning about computer programming.  All ages and experience welcome!

Team Read Celebration!

Students at the middle school were invited to participate in Team Read.  Team Read is an eight-week challenge, where students form teams of three and read the same book at the same time.  The challenge is to read the most books.  Students track their reading and talk about the book with Mrs. Butterfield or Miss Kral after they completed the book.  There were two different branches of the competition.  Fifth grade students compete against other fifth grade students.  Students in sixth through eighth grade compete against each other.


This year, we had a record breaking 61 teams enter Team Read.








At the end of Team Read, we hold an assembly to announce the winners!  The top three teams, in each division, were awarded gift cards to Barnes and Noble and enjoyed a pizza party.



Each participant who logged at least one book attended the assembly.  We gave out 180 prizes!



Mrs. Butterfield went above and beyond in organizing and carrying out Team Read!  Her passion for reading and working with students is evident!  When you see her, give her a big thanks for everything she does!
