St. Kateri Catholic Schools announced a partnership with the University of Notre Dame and the Diocese of Toledo to enhance the educational experience at the school by using blended learning.

The partnership is to make Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School and St. Kateri Catholic Academy the first Catholic schools in the Toledo area to utilize a blended learning model of teaching. It is a style of learning that integrates technology and allows students to learn at their own pace.

“This is part of our school improvement plan,” said Stritch Principal Tim Malone. “The use of technology is a growing trend and we want to match that with our education.”

Authorities are still investigating bomb threats that occurred at the end of the classes Monday at two Oak Harbor schools.

No suspects have been found as of Wednesday, Oak Harbor Police Chief Steve Weirich said.

Officers are attempting to trace the source of the calls made to the Oak Harbor High School and Middle School shortly after 2:30 p.m. They believe the calls were made by a cell phone that can’t be tracked, the chief said.

Oregon City Council on Monday approved the issuance of up to $7 million in mortgage revenue bonds for the development of an assisted living facility for seniors on a 13-acre site at the southeast corner of Seaman Road and South Coy Road in Oregon.

AlcoreSenior LLC, the developer of the project, located in Columbus, proposes to develop, own and operate, through an affiliate, a campus for seniors that will include 10-20 independent living units located either in ranch style bungalows or a multi-family building, and a 77 unit licensed assisted living/memory care center of approximately 45,000 square feet.

After four years of renovations, Toledo Public Schools and the administration, staff, students, and the Alumni Association of Morrison R. Waite High School will host a rededication ceremony of the school this Friday, May 9 at 1:30 p.m. in the Grant Murray Field House.

The Waite pep band, orchestra, and show choir will perform, and TPS Superintendent and Waite graduate Romules Durant, Business Manager James Gant, and architect Gary Ashford will be among those speaking.
