Ruskin School

A number of Walnut Hills students attend Ruskin School. Ruskin, for those not familiar with it, is located off Xenia Avenue, about two blocks from St. Mary's Church (the one with the two blue towers). Ruskin is part of the Neighborhood School Centers Project, as is Cleveland School. Kym Beasley is the coordinator at Cleveland and Mario is the coordinator at Ruskin. Part of their goal is to make sure that residents are aware of what is happening in the schools to support students and also to make sure that the community gets full use of the school. If you have any ideas or requests, please don't hesitate to contact either coordinator. Mario can be reached at 671-1178 and Kym at 542-4343.

For a look at the January issue of the Ruskin Newsletter, log onto . This month's edition features information about high schools and programs for 7th and 8th grade students that are offered by local colleges and universities to give kids an taste for post secondary schooling. Wright Stepp even offers scholarships to those who finish.

The Dayton Public Schools Select-a-School event is scheduled for Saturday February 6, at Stivers School for the Arts, located on the corner of Keowee and Fifth, from 12-4 pm. This is a good opportunity for parents starting to look at high school options for their students as well as parents looking to enroll their children in kindergarten. All schools will be represented with displays and staff and principals will be on hand to answer any questions. Registration on-site will also be available.

A January calendar of events for Ruskin is also listed.
