In conjunction with Red Ribbon Week (October 22-October 26), we want to make our community aware of another initiative, Take Back Drug Week. In cooperation with North Canton Police Department, our district would like you to know that there is an official drop off box located at the North Canton City Hall 145 N. Main St., (Enter parking lot off Ream Ave. NW for entrance to City Hall/ Police Department) North Canton, Ohio 44720. During this week, please take the time to dispose of your expired and unused prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) medications and properly dispose of them at the drop-off box. The drop off box is accessible(24/7) and is located inside the back door of city hall and the police department. Any medications can be dropped off except liquids. This is the only exception. Research shows that early experimentation and abuse often happens with medications that are available in your own home. Please use this week as an opportunity to have conversations with your children and limit accessibility by disposing unused medications. North Canton School District wants to work with all our parents to keep our students healthy, safe and drug-free!
Welcome to Greentown Intermediate School! Thank you for checking out our school family. Greentown Intermediate is part of the North Canton City School District and currently serves about 500 students in grades 3-5. We're extremely proud of our academic accomplishments (as recognized by the State of Ohio), but we are even more excited about the road ahead. We believe that all students have the ability to grow academically, socially, emotionally, and behaviorally as we try to instill a growth mindset in each child. We believe there is an extraordinary difference between NOT knowing and not knowing YET.
Our dedicated staff focuses on student-centered instruction and we are challenging the status quo of education. Why do things the way they've always been done? Let's worry less about test scores and more about providing teachers with the resources to reach ALL learners. We believe you can increase student potential through ingenuity, innovation, and an environment that promotes taking risks and seeking solutions. Our staff is not only focused on standards mastery, but we are providing experiences through flexible classroom design, STEM concepts, technology-based instruction, collaborative instructional planning, service-based community partnerships, and much more.
At Greentown, we're not just preparing our students for today; we're preparing our students for tomorrow. That's why we live by our school motto: "Learners Today. Leaders Tomorrow." Thank you for stopping by Greentown Intermediate. We look forward to learning with you soon.
