Welcome to Judith A. Resnik CLC

International Baccalaureate World School

_______A Message From Our Principal /September 2021______

Greetings Resnik Families,

Here we are already at the end of September. Time flies when we are having fun! Our Shining Stars have been working hard learning building/classroom procedures in just a short amount of time. The students are currently finishing up their iReady Reading and Math Diagnostic testing. This testing helps the teachers individualize where each of the children are academically. During Interim Conferences, your  child’s teacher will be discussing their iReady scores and next steps in their learning. 

THANK YOU to everyone for following drop-off and pick-up procedures. It takes a village to have a smooth running operation. It has been amazing having parents help in the morning to move cars further down. Just a reminder that if you want to personally get your child out of the car in the morning, please park in one of the many parking spots and cross with your child in the crosswalk. This will help our drop off line in the morning. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

At Resnik, we are working on being CARING, PRINCIPLED THINKERS! If you see your child displaying any one of these Learner Profile traits at home or in the community, we want to know and recognize your child. Please email your child’s teacher and tell them about their amazing action.

Be Kind to one another, Learn something new, and BE AMAZING!

Mrs. Booth

As an International Baccalaureate(IB) School we work on helping our students grow in ‘international mindedness”.  We want students to understand and respect others’ differences and realize that we can learn from each other.  This begins in Kindergarten as we make new friends...Welcome Kindergarten families and all of those families new to help make our community grow just by letting us get to know you!  International mindedness is growing in math classes all around the building as students realize there is more than one way to solve a math problem AND all of those ways can be correct!  International mindedness is also growing in every single classroom as we continue to emphasize the IB Learner Profile. 

 The Learner Profile is a set of 10 traits that we feel are the basis to help all of us grow in international mindedness.  Your students are learning to grow in the following attributes: inquirers, knowledgeable, thinkers, communicators, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-takers, balanced and reflective. These traits are part of EVERYTHING we do at Resnik.  Ask your child about the learner profile.  Ask them which attribute they are best at and maybe even share with them the one in which you want to grow. The beauty of the learner profile is that we all continue to grow with them every single day.  

Resnik PBIS Corner:

During the first weeks of school, Resnik students participated in our PBIS Behavior Fair by taking a walking tour throughout our building to visit our common areas to learn and review our PBIS Matrix of common area expectations. Students had the opportunity to hear from their teachers and other building staff about what it looks like to be a Caring, Principled Thinker throughout all of the common areas of our school.

Our PBIS committee meets  monthly and we are always looking for proactive ways to support students’ behavior, helping them to become Caring, Principled Thinkers.  Our PBIS Behavior Matrix and PBIS overview video are posted on both the Resnik website and Class Dojo page.  Please feel free to Contact Ms. Angelo for more information or if you have some ideas you’d like to share with our PBIS Team!

_______A Message From Our Principal /August 2021______

Welcome Back Resnik Shining Stars!! We are “Gearing up for Success!”

August 2, 2021

Greetings Resnik Families,

Welcome to the 2021/2022 school year. I hope you had an amazing summer filled with adventures and memories that will last a lifetime. We are “gearing” up for an exciting school year filled with inquiry, fun, and empowering our Resnik students to be agents of their learning.

As we embark on this new school year, we know that safety is our number one priority within the Akron Public Schools and here at Resnik. We will continue to follow the safety guidelines that are established by our Board of Education through the recommendations of many stakeholders.

We will continue to wear masks. This will be for all students, staff, and visitors to the Akron Public Schools. Please stock up on masks and send a couple in your child’s book bag each day in case they get wet or break. Within the school buildings, we will continue to maintain a social distance of at least 3 feet. 

Students will not be required to wear uniforms this school year. We ask that students wear school appropriate clothing:

  • Shirts should cover the shoulders-no tank tops

  • Shorts should be at fingertip length.

  • No profanity or Inappropriate signs on t-shirts

  • No ripped jeans or shorts

  • No sandals, slippers, or high heel shoes (this is difficult to play outside) tennis shoes are the preferred choice for school

Homeroom Assignments for the 2021-2022 school year went out through email on Friday, July 30th. If for some reason you did not receive your child’s homeroom assignment, please contact the school office.

School Supply Lists for this year are available in the foyer of the school. The lists were also sent through email on July 30th.

In closing, I am excited about the upcoming school year. Together we can make a joyful learning environment where children feel confident, excited to learn, and make a difference in their learning community.
