           Dear Buckeye 5th Grade Students,
We would like to wish each of you the very best as you continue your education
at LaMuth. Remember … Make good choices, show character and accept the
challenges ahead. We hope each of you have fond memories of Buckeye and we
will miss you! Don’t forget to stop and visit us when you have a chance. Have an
enjoyable and safe summer! Best Wishes!

Thank You Parents…
The staff and I would like to thank all of our parents for their assistance this year, especially the parents that have
served as P.T.C. officers and special event chairpersons; supported our fundraisers, raffles and Market Days;
volunteered in the classroom, the library and helped supervise field trips. Without your continued support, our
school would not be as successful as it is each year. Thank you!

Ohio Achievement Tests
In April 2010, students in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade were administered the Ohio Achievement Tests. The individual
student results for these tests will be returned to the district in mid June. Student information will be sent home in
the fall with the first interims in early October. Grade level results will be posted on our website as soon as the
information is available. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Kujala prior to June 21st or after
August 9th.

District News… 4th Grade AT Program
The 4th Grade Self-Contained Gifted (AT) program will not be offered for the 2010-2011 school year. It was one
of many financial cuts the Board of Education had to implement to help balance the 2010-2011 budget. The 5th
Grade Self-Contained Gifted (AT) program will be offered next school year for students presently in the program.
After next year, there will be no self-contained gifted units.
