It’s an idea that just adds up…giving young students a chance to practice and even improve math skills over the summer will give them a jump on the new school year.


This summer, Coy Elementary School teachers have been volunteering their time to present a Summer Math Club, which was open to all the school’s students. The club is held Tuesday evenings, meeting since June 17 and running through Aug. 12.

Club members are required to practice their math facts at least an hour each week. They then check in Tuesday evenings between 6 and 8 p.m. “Upon their check-in, students are given a ‘brag tag’ and are entered in a drawing for prizes, which include Jet Express tickets, Toledo Mud Hens tickets, Toledo Zoo tickets and a movie gift card,” Coy Principal Amy Molnar said.

The principal noted this is the first time Coy has offered the Summer Math Club, and thus far, she and the participating teachers have been pleased with students’ participation – to date, 83 students have studied their math facts a total of 27,245 minutes.

Terra State Community College recently received official notification that its Physical Therapist Assistant program has been granted accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation in Physical Therapy Education (CAPTE).

“CAPTE granted a full five-year accreditation to Terra State, the maximum length awarded to any new PTA program,” said Bruce Wassung, PTA, MSPH, assistant professor and director of the Physical Therapist Assistant Program.
