Mary Catherine Ratkosky / Principal of Carylwood Intermediate School           Dear Carylwood Families,

 

            Welcome to the 2017 – 2018 school year. I am excited about this new beginning we will share this coming school year. While some of you may already know me, my name is Mary Catherine Ratkosky. I am a graduate of Bedford High School. I attended Cleveland State University where I obtained both my Bachelors and Masters Degrees. I currently hold a 1-8 teaching license, a PK-6 and 4-9 Principal licenses as well as a Superintendent’s license. I began my teaching career in 2001 at Columbus Intermediate School. During my tenure at Columbus I taught both 4th and 5th grades (including an all boys class.) Following my years at Columbus Intermediate, I made Heskett Middle School my home serving as Dean of Students and Assistant Principal for seven years.

           

Mr. Gruttaduaria and I look forward to working in tandem with you to make our mission of nurturing and enriching all a reality.  This year we will continue to develop a well balanced but structured environment that will empower our students and staff to become Bearcat Super H.E.R.O. ‘s.  Throughout the year we will be on the lookout for students and staff members who display the characteristics of being helpful, engaged, respectful and responsible, and optimistic.

 

            Our goals are simple but extremely impactful when nurturing and enriching our students:

           

  • establish a warm, welcoming environment
  • increase student vocabulary to expand their reading and writing knowledge
  • increase student understanding of number sense in order to advance to mathematical concepts such as algebra and geometry
  • increase parent engagement

 

            The staff at Carylwood is committed to address the individual needs of all of our students. We will strive to put forth our best effort to service our students academically, socially, behaviorally, mentally, physically, and emotionally. Students will be exposed to both enrichment and interventions based on individual student data. We will celebrate the positives and work diligently to correct behaviors that impede the learning process.

 

            In order to provide the best possible environment for our students it is crucial that we build the partnership between the school and the families we serve. We encourage you to become involved. We look forward to seeing you at PTA meetings, Open House, conferences, and any school activities that will be held throughout the school year.

           

            Please feel free to call Carylwood’s office with any questions you may have (440) 439-4509.  We look forward to an amazing year!

 

            We are Carylwood United!
