Because you can’t bloom in your room!

Dianne Mortensen, Lisa Barrett, Michelle Curns and Nicole Buehler, play The Match Game with residents to celebrate Activity Professional’s Week.

Shopping trips, restaurants, Mud Hens games, movies, activities (morning, noon and night). While Riverview’s activity staff has fun implementing all of the facility’s events and activities, it is also a lot of work setting up, transporting residents, keeping score and make snacks to ensure a successfully event. All of this while also completing resident assessments and attending resident and family care conferences.


Volunteer opportunity at Magee Marsh Wildlife Area

Magee Marsh Wildlife Area was recently voted the Best Birding Destination by the readers of USA Today; it is also known as the “warbler capital of the world.”   Those enjoying various kinds of wildlife, beautiful scenery and helping people of all ages, are invited to volunteer at the Migratory Bird Center in the Magee Marsh Wildlife Area.  The Friends of Magee Marsh need volunteers to help with projects they sponsor throughout the year.   

A volunteer may be asked to help with:  answering visitor’s questions, assisting in the gift shop, giving out information, ex. maps, about the area, helping with the boardwalk restoration project, pulling garlic mustard and Lake Erie beach clean-up. 

The Magee Marsh Wildlife Area and Sportsman’s Migratory Bird Center are 17 miles west of Port Clinton, located at 13229 W. State Rt. 2 between SR 19 and 590.   

Volunteers are needed March through November and are asked to work a minimum of one six-hour day a month, but most work longer, especially during the wildlife area’s busy month in May.   

A volunteer training session is scheduled for Saturday, March 7, at 12 p.m. for all volunteers at the Bird Center and will include a pizza lunch.  Those interested in volunteering and signing up for the session should visit the Friends of Magee Marsh Facebook page and send a message with the name, phone number, address and email address of the interested volunteer. Those interested can also send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with the same volunteer information.


B-C-S State of the School District, 2015

By Guy L. Parmigian, Superintendent

In 2015, the state of the Benton-Carroll-Salem School District is strong because the support and effort of our people is strong.  In particular, I first want to highlight our more than 200 staff members and their devoted efforts to provide the best learning experiences and opportunities possible.  Our whole school district community should take pride in our staff's dynamic efforts to empower our students to succeed in our classrooms and labs, and in competitions and contests near and far.  B-C-S employees go above and beyond and I have been privileged to witness some of this including the teacher in their classroom planning during Christmas Break, the custodian who comes in during their time off to make sure the building is clean, and the teacher who charges the dead battery of a high school student’s vehicle when no one else is available to help.  Thanks to the student-centered teamwork of our staff, the Benton-Carroll-Salem School District is meeting and exceeding academic expectations, while being fiscally responsible with taxpayer dollars.
