On January 1, 2021, we are implementing a NEW Instant Alert System. It is important to note that your information will NOT automatically be loaded into the system.  If you want to receive communication, you must register for the alerts.  

Your online profile will enable you to: input your personal contact information; add contact information of other caretakers of your children, such as a grandparent or neighbor; select how you would like to receive the communication. (ie. text, call, email).  Your email address MUST match the email entered in Oneview (If you have not completed your student registration in Oneview, please do so first and then register for Instant Alert.)

FREE Breakfast/Lunch

BREAKFAST and LUNCH for the remainder of the school year 2020-2021 are FREE thanks to a grant received from United States Department of Agriculture.


First Lady Fran DeWine announced today that the Ohio Governor’s Imagination Library Program is now being offered to children in all of Ohio’s 88 counties. 
Kids from birth to age five statewide are now eligible to receive a free book in the mail each month, no matter what county they live in.
When First Lady DeWine started this program with the Dolly Parton Imagination Library, only a handful of counties offered the books and 13 percent of Ohio children were enrolled. 
Parents are encouraged to enroll their kids in this free literary program. To sign up, visit Learn more about the Ohio Governor’s Imagination Library in the video below.

March 29-April 2 – Spring Break By the time you read this, we will have FINALLY made it to March. The old saying “April showers bring May flowers” is a promise of warmer weather and the return of a greener life outdoors. February has been brutal to us this year with the number of delays and cancellations that we have had. Looking at the ten-day forecast, it seems that this round of bitter cold and snow may be finally over, and I am eagerly looking forward to the return of warmer days, more daylight, and the arrival of the early spring flowers. March is also an important month of the school year. It is the “final stretch” so to speak in regards to getting our students prepared for the statewide assessments this spring. As teachers work diligently to make sure that our students are as well prepared as possible, please continue to make sure that your students are eating a good breakfast and getting plenty of rest so they are on top of their game each day. The statewide assessments will be starting in mid-April. We will kick off the first week of the new month with our annual “Right to Read” week. This year’s theme is Dr. Seuss and will commemorate his birthday - March 2 nd. Mrs. Noffsinger, GH librarian, has been busy planning the week’s activities, and she is pleased to announce that each class will be able to visit the new Paulding County Library branch in town. Students will be able to see the library, become familiar with the layout of the facility, learn how to get a library card, and learn more about all of the services the library has to offer. This is a great resource here in the community that is just waiting to be discovered. A big “thank you” goes out to Mrs. Noffsinger and the librarians for partnering to make this a reality. This is also the time of year when we start preschool and kindergarten screenings. Preschool screenings for Grover Hill will be on Thursday, March 25th from 1-5pm. To schedule an appointment, please call Laurie DeLong, Special Education and Preschool Director, for an appointment. If your child will be ready for kindergarten or transitional kindergarten, kindergarten screenings will be conducted on Thursday March 25th and Friday, March 26th. Please call 419-399- 4100, option #3 to register for either of the screenings. As a side note, current GH kindergarten and transitional kindergarten students will not have school on March 25th and 26th as the teachers test next year’s students. The Paulding County Libraries are once again sponsoring the “Battle of the Books” competition for county 5th and 6th grade students. Grover Hill has two teams this year. The “Radiant Reading Raiders” team consists of S. Lopez-Castillo, C. Manz, N. Schlatter, A. Stoller, Z. Stoller, and C. Volk while the “JAC” team is comprised of J. Beining, C. Brimmer, A. LaBounty, A. Manz, A. Noffsinger, and A. Stoller. Both teams read and study selected book in preparation for the competition where they will face tough questions over all of the books that they have read. At this time, the Paulding County Library is still working out the logistics of the competition to make sure it is Covid compliant, and students are excited to have the opportunity to participate this year as the competition was cancelled last spring. Thanks to all of our hardworking GH students that are busy preparing for this year’s battle between the various schools. Finally, a huge congratulations goes out to N. Schlatter for his outstanding performance at the Paulding County Spelling Bee. I had the privilege of watching all of the county spellers compete, and he had some of the hardest words of any of the contestants. He certainly represented the building and district well as the 3rd place finisher. All of those hours of studying and preparation certainly paid off! Spring break for all Wayne Trace schools will be March 29th through April 2. We wish everyone a restful and rewarding break. Upon our return, we will continue preparing for the rigors of statewide testing in the weeks that follow. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, never hesitate to call.
