Principal's Message


Welcome to Judith A. Resnik CLC

International Baccalaureate World School

_______A Message From Our Principal /March 2023______

It is almost hard to believe that the month of
March is upon us! We are more than halfway
through the school year but the learning is far
from over. Our teachers and students are
working hard in the classroom to fulfill
Resnik’s Vision of becoming internationally-
minded, lifelong learners. Taking action is one
way that we can improve our world and share
our learning with others. Please let us know
when you catch your child “in action” at home
or in the community! Students love to get the
recognition on the morning announcements
and it helps teachers to know that what their
students are learning in the classroom is
making its way outside the walls of the school.
Change is one of the Key Concepts that we
often contemplate as IB Learners. What does
it look like? How does it make us feel?

As you know, Mrs. Core is currently on leave. As I
lead the learning in her absence, I have the
privilege of welcoming two support
administrators, Mrs. Wilson and Mrs. Jones, to
assist me in ensuring that the work at Resnik
continues as usual.

Also, Mrs. Baheejah Waheem ("Miss B"), our
new substitute secretary, has settled into her
temporary role at Resnik. We all wish Mrs.
Beth Meeks well as she has begun her new role
with the district as Itinerant Secretary/Trainer.
And, don’t forget, Mrs. Korlisa Murray, our new
Family Liaison, who continues to prove to be
an essential part of our Resnik family.
I look forward to partnering with you in your
child’s education.

Resnik Stars


Welcome to Fall Y'all!

Fall brings cool weather, pumpkins galore, excited children and lots of change. There is an actual term for the feelings of anxiety and anticipation many have during the seasonal changes "autumn anxiety". Be sure to keep an open line of communication between you and your loved ones, let your children play outside as long as the sun is shining, and get rest.

Below are just a few reminders as the seasons change.


Inclement Weather

Our school doors open at 7:50 am each morning. Please be mindful to stay with your child until the doors open as there is no supervision. We go outside for recess if the weather is above 20 degrees and the playground is clear. Wear warm coats, gloves and hats. If you need anything, please let the office know.


Drop Off (morning)

There have been several incidents of unsafe adult behavior in the morning. Please drive slowly, drop off your child at the curb side only, do not stop in the left lane to drop off children, and set a good example of positive responsibility.  


Have a safe and joyous week!

Mrs. Core

Resnik CLC is now a PBIS Bronze Level School!


What this means: Bronze level schools can document evidence of a comprehensive system of behavioral supports at Tier I. The Essential Elements related to Tier I are implemented with fidelity and consistency across all school settings. Bronze level schools consistently utilized data-based problem solving in existing team structures. These schools could produce evidence of organized team meeting notes and data based program planning. First year schools are only eligible for Bronze Level Recognition.


Félicitations! Resnik Learners & Staff



PBIS Cafeteria Tickets


You may have heard about our Friday raffles. Children earn tickets for showing how they are caring, principled, thinkers by following out cafeteria norms (rules of expected behavior).

Ask your child to share information and expectations with you!




_______A Message From Our Principal /August 2022______

Dear Parents,

Welcome back to a wonderful learning year! I hope everyone had an exciting and peaceful summer. I am proud to return to my “roots” at Resnik CLC. This is my third time walking on the footprint of this great school. In the 80’s, I went to Fairlawn Elementary. I have many fond memories of tetherball, Halloween parades, safety patrol, and joyful learning opportunities. Six years ago, I worked at Resnik as the part time Dean of Students with Principal Brady. Since then, my home has been at Forest Hill CLC as their principal. Entering my 26th year with APS, I am blessed to be working with you!

My primary goal is to provide a safe, caring, and orderly learning environment in which teachers can teach, and children can learn. I am inspired by the dedication and commitment of the teachers, staff, and parents of Resnik CLC.  We are continuing to expand our work towards achieving greater academic excellence and success for all students. 

I recognize that it is a privilege to serve your child/children.  One of the most enjoyable aspects of my job as principal is meeting and interacting with parents.  Excellent communication and parental support helps us provide the tools needed for each student’s academic growth and achievement.   

I share your commitment to your child’s education and am always available to conference with you regarding your child’s success at Resnik CLC. If I can be of any help, please feel free to contact the office to schedule an appointment.  I look forward to meeting all of you and having a great and successful school year. TOGETHER we can ensure a brighter future for our children.

In Partnership,

Sarah W. Core

Daily attendance counts!  When students are late or are signed out early the time is recorded.  Absent minutes add up quickly and can result in referrals to court for truancy just as full and half day absences add up.   Please be sure your child is here by 8:15 and can get to his/her room on time.  Avoid signing him/her out early. 

Please be ready with a photo ID to sign your child out of school. If you are not the listed guardian, the guardian will be contacted before your child is allowed to leave.


All APS has waived school uniforms for SY 2022-23. We ask that you are mindful of the following; no open toed shoes (slippers, flip flops, etc.), no spaghetti strapped tops, no bicycle/yoga style shorts or pants, and shorts at the length of the fingertips. I am hoping to offer spirit-wear for our students again this year. More information to follow! 


Please call the office at 330-761-1633 to sign up for a time slot on August 29th August 30th, or August 31st.  The teachers will be checking on some basic skills during that time so they are able to plan lessons that meet the needs of each child.  Our health aide will also do vision and hearing screening during that time.  

Parents or adults must remain in the building during the screening. 


All Calls  Please listen to ALL Calls for updates.  These will be sent by both e-mail and phone messages. Thank you for listening to the entire message for details of school events and messages.  There is no need to return a call to the school. If you haven’t updated your phone and e-mail, please call the school so we can do that for you. This is the primary source of communication for your family.


   ClassDojo is a free digital sharing platform that allows teachers to document the day in class and share that with families via a web browser so that nearly any device can access the content – from a simple smartphone to a laptop computer. As long as it has a browser, photos and videos can be viewed. ClassDojo brings school communities together, with one place for teachers and families to connect, communicate, and share learning experiences. Your classroom teacher will invite you to join. They will use this for communication, PBIS engagement and other features. I will use it in addition to all calls for building wide information.
