Mrs. Suann DeWitt was the 2016 Growing Teachers grant recipient at Columbia University Teacher’s College Reading and Writing Project summer institute in New York City.  Mrs. DeWitt attended the week-long conference learning about implementing the Lucy Calkin’s Reading Units of Study and ways to turn classrooms into richly literate environments.  She met and collaborated with teachers throughout the world during the five days of training.  Mrs. DeWitt was fortunate to receive training from Samantha Barrett and Shanna Schwartz.  They have co-authored several reading units on best practices in reading workshop, the role of assessment-based reading instruction to support student growth, and implementing instruction that increases comprehension skills.  She also attended sessions led by author Matt de la Pena who shared his struggles in reading and recalled the teachers who supported him in becoming an avid reader and writer.  Mrs. DeWitt is excited to share her knowledge and support teachers in utilizing the Reading Units of Study.

College Colors Day

Friday, September 2, 2016, Oak Ridge Schools celebrated College Colors Day.  Students and staff were encourage to wear their favorite college gear.  Schools that were spotted  included:  Southeast Missouri State, Mizzou, Southern Illinois, Texas, Kansas, Virginia Tech, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Illinois, and many more.  It is our goal to get students to think forward to where they may want to go once they leave the halls of Oak Ridge School.  It was a fun day to see so many schools and colors represented!

To start the new school year off the Oak Ridge R-VI school staff hit the road.  The staff loaded up on two school buses to tour the district and visit district patrons.  Staff visited Glueck Enterprises, Fronabarger Concreters, Thomas Farms, Baldwin Racing Engines, and Apple Creek Winery.  At each of these stops district staff were given a tour of the operation and learned what each of these businesses expects from new employees and graduates of Oak Ridge Schools. 

We would like to thank each of these individuals for taking their time to welcome our staff.  It was a great learning experience to see not only where our students live, but also to see some examples of successful enterprises that are located right here within the boundaries of the Oak Ridge R-VI School District.  

 District staff are ready for the tour!  Roger Thomas and grandson Noah Unterreiner speak about Thomas Farms.  Thomas Farms
