Now through October 15th, we are collecting children's coats (good condition or new) in an effort to generate enough winter coats and cold weather accessories to keep our Worthington children warm this winter. We have placed a donation box outside our office door. Please consider donating an outgrown coat or a new coat.
The survey completed by students, parents, and staff in Spring 2014 is now available for you to review. Thank you for your feedback as we strive to make WES an ideal place for learning. Click here to review the survey.

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are new English Language Arts and Mathematics standards that have been adopted by 46 of the 50 states. These standards were developed as a response to colleges and businesses expressing the concern that many students graduating high school in the United States are not college or career ready. The CCSS focus on fewer standards, define more clearly achievement, and set higher expectations for all students. Throughout the CCSS there is a greater emphasis on developing critical thinking and problem solving skills. You can learn more about the CCSS by viewing this video on the Ohio Department of Education website.
In Worthington, grades K-2 are implementing these new standards this year. Grade 3 is doing a hybrid between the CCSS and the current Ohio standards. Grades 4-6 will begin implementing the CCSS standards during the 2013-2014 school year.
More information is available on the Curriculum Liaison Council (CLC) page of the Worthington Schools website and can be accessed by clicking here. Minutes from the CLC meetings contain valuable information from Worthington Schools for you. If you have comments/questions, you can contact our PTA rep for the CLC Jennifer Squires at email@example.com. Check back often for updates on this transition process.
