UPDATE STUDENT INFORMATION NOW
The Online Information Update for the new year is now available. Each year we ask that parents or guardians of returning students review and update their child’s contact and health information. The online review replaces the paper forms we used to send home with each child every year. Now parents or guardians can easily make changes and complete necessary school forms. The update may be completed at your convenience on your home computer through August 26. Ritter Public Library also offers computers for public use and a computer is available at the Administration office throughout the summer.
Username and password information was mailed to all families on July 17. The link to the online information update page is: https://studentinfo.vermilionschools.org . All students should have updated information on file by the first day of school. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.
SAILORWAY SEEKING STUDENT MENTORS FOR 2015-2016
Looking for a way to volunteer in your community? Interested in helping students improve reading skills? Sailorway Middle School is looking for adults who are willing to volunteer their time to read with students. In cooperation with Project MORE (Mentoring in Ohio for Reading Excellence), we need adults who are willing to work with students in a 1-on-1 setting. Volunteers are asked to follow the script provided by the program facilitator, and build a relationship with the student. Volunteer mentors need commit to only 30 minutes per week while school is in session. The schedule can be flexible – you decide the day of the week that is best for you. If you are interested in helping our students become successful readers, please email Sailorway Principal Brian Zeller at email@example.com or call the school at 440-204-1702, ext. 551. We look forward to working with you!
