Updates from Barberton Schools
Thank you to an Outstanding Coach – The Barberton Board of
Education and I would like to publicly thank Mr. Ken Rector for his 20 years of
dedication to the Barberton Basketball Program.
Coach Rector’s tenure enhanced the rich tradition of Barberton
Basketball by recording 300 wins throughout his career; an amazing
accomplishment. Not many high schools
are fortunate enough to maintain a winning program and retain a coach for this
length of time.
Being a head coach takes an incredible amount of time and energy, on top of his position as a BHS business and computer applications teacher, a position that he will still hold. Not only do we appreciate what Mr. Rector has contributed to BHS basketball, we would also like to thank Coach Rector’s wife and family for their support and sacrifices during the last 20 years.
Thanks, Coach Rector, for the great seasons and great memories!
Summer Reminder – The summer months give students a chance to rest, recharge and have fun outdoors. However, don’t forget to make time for reading and math practice to keep Summer Slide at bay. Parents, here is a challenge for your children this summer: for every hour they spend watching TV or playing video games, they should match with an hour of reading. This practice will actually enhance children’s reading skills during the summer and make them more prepared for school in August. To find more information about summer reading and math summer assignments, go to our website, www.barbertonschools.org
I encourage parents to sign up for the Barberton Public Library’s Summer Reading Club, running from June 1 to August 13. Students and parents can combine reading with activities and prizes all summer long.
