Kramer Enews 5/14/21

Posted on: May 14, 2021



Happy Friday!  We had a great week in both the remote and face-to-face classrooms.  We were also able to get outside on the big playground for recess!  We had a great week at Kramer.  


TMS Tour- Current 5th Graders

All incoming 6th graders are invited to attend the upcoming TMS Open House on Wednesday, May 19th from 5-8pm. Students and their families may tour the building and pick up some brief information. We will have school administrators and counselors available for questions. There will also be an open house in August. 


Primary Health Solutions

Primary Health Solutions is accepting new patients now within the Talawanda School District and is willing to help Talawanda families with their medical and any vaccination needs.  They have multiple convenient locations. See the link to their local office.


Kramer Triathlon

The Kramer PTG is excited to announce the Kramer Triathlon will replace the Kramer Mile for the 2020/2021 school year. Our Kramer Triathlon, also known as Read, Play, Run Week, is a chance for all students to build healthy habits for mind and body while raising money for our PTG. During the week of May 17, remote and face to face students will commit to reading 30 minutes a day, spending an extra 30 minutes outdoors playing, and taking 30 minutes to run/walk/move.  We are encouraging Kramer students to ask their family and friends to sponsor them as they try to meet their goal of completing the Kramer Triathlon.

Kindergarten Registration for 21-22 School Year

The Talawanda School District is currently taking calls for Kindergarten Registration for the 21-22 school year.  Please contact the elementary school for your area.  If you are unsure of which elementary school your child will attend each of our schools will help you get to the correct school.  When you call we will take down some information and then will email you a packet of information and a link to our online registration forms.  Please be sure to have an active email address.  






Hotspot Collection- Mr. Rand

If your student is NOW attending school in person, but you were issued a hotspot while the district was hosting remote learning, we will begin collecting hotspots from just those students that are now face-to-face.


You may return the hotspot to your child's school, in the main office.  We will mark each student down as we receive the hotspots back.


If you have any questions, please contact your child's school.

We need your feedback! A group of community partners serving the Oxford area, including the Coalition for a Healthy Community - Oxford Area, Talawanda Schools, Miami University, the Butler County Mental Health and Addiction Services Board, and McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital/Tri Health, are working on a project to reduce gaps and address barriers to substance use prevention, treatment, and recovery programs. Your participation in the following survey will help us identify priorities and areas of focus for this work. Your feedback is completely voluntary and will remain anonymous.
