Michael Zoccali, Principal at Stadium Drive Elementary joined us for our meeting today. He spent time talking about updates on items that are happening at the School.
In his second year as the Principal at Stadium Drive, he thanked the Club for their participation in the donation of dictionaries to all the third graders in the school.
In other updates, he shared updates on new math, reading, and social study updates to the curriculum. Currently all students at Stadium Drive are also participating in Art, Music, and Physical Education instruction. Some time was spent talking about the new format of the state report cards on school districts and how those figures are figured. Stadium Drive was proud to report that with increased standards that the school was able to show improvement in all categories.
Mr. Zoccali then spoke about how it's important for him to have his students be active in the community and support its surrounding neighborhood and the greater Boardman area. Linking that to how Rotary is linked to the community, he spent some time talking about how the children at his school honor local heroes including our servicemen, fire fighters, and police force in an annual 9/11 ceremony. We were then informed about other school events that also included the 100 year anniversary of the Boardman Schools.
