Adrian’s School History

The South Euclid-Lyndhurst City School District is a

school district
School districts are a form of special-purpose district which serves to operate the local public elementary school and high school schools. They exist mostly in the United States, where they operate nearly all government-funded schools....
 in Cuyahoga County,

The United States of America is a Federal government constitutional republic comprising U.S. state and a federal district. The country is situated mostly in central North America, where its Contiguous United States and Washington, D.C., the Capital districts and territories, lie between the Pacific Ocean and Atlantic Oceans, Borders of the U...

. The District is overseen by a Board of Education which consists of five elected members, advised by the Superintendent and Treasurer of the District. The Board sets the policy for the schools and ensures the implementation of that policy. The school district has a long time line of events dating back to the early 1900s. The first class graduated from South Euclid High School in 1916. In 1953, Adrian Elementary was built. In 1965, another wing was added to the building. In 1978, Dr. Henry Kurdziel became Superintendent and all buildings were renovated to be handicapped accessible. In 1989, the school went from a K-6 building to a K-4 building. In 2006, Adrian went from a K-4 building to a K-3 building. In June 2007, Lowden, Ridgebury and Southlyn Elementary closed; and in August 2007, Adrian, Rowland, and Sunview re-opened to K-3. (Retrieved from: South_Euclid-Lyndhurst_City_School_District #encyclopedia). In 2003, Dr. Mark Woodby became principal.
Under Dr. Woodby’s leadership, the Adrian School staff has been dedicated to creating a learning environment that is connected by a sense of purpose in a climate that is communicative, disciplined, and caring. We believe that high academic standards must be set for all children. We expect every child to succeed and thrive.
In addition to our commitment to the academic success of every child, it is our goal that each child will develop a keen sense of personal and civic responsibility. Our commitment to character building will assist parents in promoting excellence in living as well as in learning.

School Mission and History

Adrian Elementary School has many assets to highlight. The administrators, staff and students work collectively to continue to seek success.
Adrian offers many clubs to assist students with academic intervention and enrichment. Our clubs include ABC, AVTV, Homework, 100 Book Challenge, Critical Thinking, OAT Reading, OAT Math, Technology, Recycling/Environment, OAT Test Preparation, Reading Enrichment, Math Facts, Social Skills, Music Enrichment and Adrian Scholars and Rubies.
Adrian Scholars and Rubies are clubs for third grade students. Ms. Marshall and Mrs. Abbott have worked together to coordinate unique opportunities for the boys and girls to meet and interview the Notre Dame Basketball team, visit The Greens Nursing Home, visit Brush High School to meet older MAC scholars, and plans are being made to visit the Mayor’s Office.
Our specialist classes (music, physical education, art, math lab and library) coordinate with classroom teachers to target grade level indicators and assist with improving our student performance and overall school experience.
The school staff built a school wide plan that everyone follows. Positive behavior is often rewarded with a star gram and gumball or pencil in the office. Excellent or improved work is displayed next to the main office in the Principal’s Pick bulletin board weekly. Student behavior is tracked daily and appropriate behavior is rewarded at the end of each trimester with an All Star Party for qualifying students.
Adrian has made efforts to connect with our community. We have linked community organizations with some of the needs of our students and families to provide food, winter clothing, school supplies, holiday gifts and tutoring assistance.
Adrian hosts several interns from prestigious colleges that allow for additional attention to our students as well as offering new “cutting edge” ideas in education. Our interns add value to our educational community while providing the interns with valuable teaching experience.
Adrian strives to provide a well-rounded education to stimulate students’ academic success, enhance social skills and provide a positive learning atmosphere of learning, respect and genuine caring. The staff works collectively and relentlessly to help every child succeed.

In 2003, Dr. Woodby implemented the Academic Watch Program. The Academic Watch is one of the programs that targets our interventions and student academic needs. The principal and teacher meet to discuss student progress. Parents are notified of concerns. Resources are then focused to improve all areas of need.

In 2006, Adrian was first selected as a School of Promise. Adrian has been recognized as a School of Promise by the Ohio Department of Education for four out of seven years. In 2008-2009, 146 schools in Ohio earned that honor for high achievement for all students. Adrian was one of 48 schools to be recognized for high achievement in both math and reading. Adrian is one of nine schools to earn this prestigious award for three consecutive years in both areas. This honor has been achieved by assessing student data and meeting the instructional needs of our students.

School History

Adrian’s School Behavior Management Plan

Our goal at Adrian is to create an environment that is stimulating and safe for each child. This includes assisting children in making appropriate behavioral choices. The staff decided upon the desired school/classroom rules. They discuss the rules with the students and the rules are posted throughout the building for all to see.

Adrian School Rules

  1. Be kind and respectful

  2. Follow directions the first time given

  3. Raise your hand and wait quietly

  4. Stay focused

  5. Keep your hands and feet to yourself

Each student will be able to keep track of his/her personal behavior by use of a behavioral chart. The behavioral chart used in each classroom will contain four colored cards.

  • Green card – appropriate behavior

  • Yellow card – “warning”

  • Blue card – planning form and missed recess

  • Red card – parent notified

If a child breaks the rules posted, the consequences will be as follows:

Step 1 – The teacher gives a verbal reminder of appropriate behavior. The green card remains on top in the pocket chart.

Step 2 – The child pulls the green card and the yellow warning card is now showing in the student’s pocket. This is a warning.

Step 3 – The child pulls the yellow card and the blue card is now showing. The student completes a blue planning form (at recess or the end of the day). The planning form is sent home with the student, signed by a parent, and returned the next day.

Step 4 – Child pulls the blue card and the red card is showing. The teacher will notify the parent.

Each child begins a new day with a green card. The students change cards on the pocket chart when needed. At the end of the day, either the teacher or the student will record the color card showing in each child’s pocket. In addition to the pocket chart, each child will receive a “star chart” at the beginning of each week. Students can earn a star on his/her “star chart” at the end of the day if a green card is still showing in the classroom pocket chart. He/she can also earn stars by exhibiting appropriate behavior during specialist time and lunch/recess. Students with 85% of his/her stars at the end of the week will participate in “Friday Fun”. This activity period, or reward, will be held for 15-20 minutes on Fridays at a time that is convenient for the classroom teacher. Students, who have not earned the “Friday Fun” activity, will be asked to sit quietly at his/her seat to reflect upon his/her behavior with the classroom teacher. The “star chart” will be sent home for parents to review and discuss with each child. Our goal is to reward good behaviors in hopes of diffusing bad behaviors.

Behavior Management Plan

Adrian’s Academic Watch

In 2003, the Academic Watch Program began. The purpose of this program is to enable time for the principal and teacher to have a focused dialog related to the academic progress of individual students. From this dialog, specific needs are highlighted, parents are notified of concerns, and our resources can be directed to the needs of the child. The Academic Watch Program also provides opportunities for teachers to share which children are in need of academic enrichment in the form of differentiated instruction.
