Marking the Middle
January 18 marks the beginning of the second semester, which means the 2021-2022 school year is already halfway complete. As I get older, the school years seem to pass by faster and faster.
Over the last several months, our strategic planning committee finalized the action steps that we are currently working toward specific to improving communication, elevating student experiences, aligning student learning with future success, and building a strong culture. For details on the plan, check out the strategic plan webpage.
As we’ve talked with area employers, it’s clear that our students need more than academic skills. A team representing parents, staff, administrators, employers, community, and higher education will engage in creating the Cory-Rawson “Portrait of a Graduate” over the next five months . We will answer three questions:
What are the hopes, aspirations, and dreams we have for the young people in our community?
What skills do our kids need to be successful in a changing world?
What implications does this have for Cory-Rawson Local Schools?
Stay tuned for these answers by summer, which will be here before we know it! In our hearts, the Green and Gold.

Peer Model Registration for Cory-Rawson Preschool for 2022-2023
Peer model students in the Cory-Rawson Preschool unit serve as role models for the children in our program who have special needs in the area of communication, hearing, vision, social- emotional skills, cognitive skills, motor skills and adaptive behavior skills. If you have any developmental concerns regarding your child please contact the Preschool Supervisor, Donna Losiewicz, at the Hancock Educational Service Center at 419-422-7525 ext. 208.
Children who are at least 3 or 4 years of age by August 1 of the 2022-2023 school year will be screened to determine age appropriate levels of social, physical, and language development prior to enrollment.
Preschool registration for the screening is February 7th through the 18th. Parents who are interested in registering their child for preschool will need to complete this registration form (or come in to the elementary office to complete). Parents should not call the school office to register.
The preschool screening will be held on March 25 at Cory-Rawson. The preschool teacher, Marianne Brinkman, will call each person on the list to make an appointment for the screening.
Enrollment in the preschool classroom is limited to 7 peer model students per class. In the event more students apply than slots available, the peer models will be selected based on age of students (students who will attend kindergarten the following year will be considered first), screening observation, and the use of random selection (lottery style).
There are 2 sessions for preschool. Classes meet Monday through Thursday. The morning class is in session from 7:50 a.m. to 10:50 a.m. The afternoon class is in session from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.. Parents may select a class preference, but there is not a guarantee that parents will be provided their first choice.
Help make our community Armed Forces Honor Garden a reality!
Dear Cory-Rawson Community:
