What will life be like 100 years from now? Our 7th graders explored this question as a culminating project to the reading they were doing. In the book Tuck Everlasting, the main characters get a glimpse of life in their town fifty years in the future. In The Giver, the setting is a community in the distant future. So, our seventh graders designed 3D models to help illustrate their thoughts to create a future city. Each student worked in groups in one of twelve sectors, such as Transportation, Recreation, Food or Communication. This project was interesting in that it incorporated all core disciplines into one. Students used their Tech Ed skills by utilizing a program called Autodesk Inventor Professional to first come up with a blueprint of their structures.. In Math, they needed to make their dimensions to scale and reported them out. One inch was equivalent to five feet in our product. In Science, students had to consider various ideas such as the Ph levels of the soil and how to make life sustainable. In Social Studies, students needed to communicate with each other to figure out how government would operate in their sector. In English, students wrote a building permit and used their communication skills to write a speech for visitors to our city in the year 2117, which they made into You Tube videos which were played during their presentations. Check out some pictures and videos of their finished work!  

Students from Cuyahoga Heights Elementary laced up their running shoes in support of the district-wide Parent Teacher Organization at the 2017 Redskin Run on Friday, May 26th. The all-day event was held at the High School stadium and featured students in grades K-5 running or walking continuously around the track for twenty-minutes during their scheduled “special.” Throughout the event, parent-volunteers cheered on every student as they circled the track, while upbeat music played over the stadium PA system. After crossing the finish line, parent-volunteers wrote the number of laps completed by each student on the back of their official event t-shirt.

Prior to the event, all participating students collected financial pledges which will be used to support teachers through the purchase of classroom technology, as well as fund PTO sponsored programs including Muffins for Mom, Donuts with Dad and Grandparents Day. The Redskin Run also featured several corporate sponsors, including Premier Produce, which donated fresh fruit for students to enjoy after finishing their final lap. The district would like to thank all participating students and parent-volunteers for supporting the Cuyahoga Heights Schools PTO at the 2017 Redskin Run!

Members of the Class of 2017 had the opportunity to retrace their journey through the Cuyahoga Heights Schools and be recognized by fellow students and staff as part of a Senior Walk on Friday, May 26th. The entire senior class donned their graduation caps and gowns, and were led by High School Principal Matt Young throughout the entire district campus. The journey began down E.71St street to the Elementary School before circling back to the Middle School and High School building. Along the way, teachers, staff and students from all grade levels lined the hallways to applaud the graduating seniors as they retraced the steps of their journey through the district over the past thirteen years. The Cuyahoga Heights Schools congratulates the Class of 2017 on their many accomplishments and wishes them continued success in all future endeavors!

Elementary students had a blast participating in a wide variety of fun, hands-on experiments during Science Day on Thursday, May 18th. The all-school event, which was coordinated by the Elementary Science Department and conducted by classroom teachers, gave students the opportunity to make “dinosaur fossils” and “elephant toothpaste,” construct a model Stegosaurus skeleton, take a ride on a hovercraft, dissect owl pellets, build helicopters and parachutes, and participate in many other engaging science-themed activities. 2nd and 3rd grade classrooms also participated in the annual Egg Drop Competition, which tests the effectiveness of egg-protecting contraptions previously constructed by students, by dropping eggs from a variety of heights. The final drop occurred from the library window! Congratulations to our wining student-scientists Anthony Grissman, Jackson Justice, Hiedi Stiegelmeyer, Nick Nemeth, Aurora Robinson and Elianna Eck!

In addition to promoting STEM based learning, Science Day gave students a chance to support Kick it For Kids with Cancer, a national organization dedicated to raising money to fund children’s cancer research. This was accomplished in partnership with the Cleveland Eye Clinic, which provided students free ice cream from its Mr. iSee® ice cream truck during the Science Day activities, in exchange for donations to a local chapter of Kick it For Kids with Cancer. Altogether, students at the Elementary School raised a total of $908.61 in donations – the most money raised by any Cleveland area school in the history of the Mr. iSee® ice cream truck charity program!

The district thanks the students and staff at Cuyahoga Heights Elementary for helping to make this year’s Science Day a success.
