Revere Notes

An accident in a Revere High chemistry lab on May 21 – two substances became dangerous when combined – caused the school to be evacuated and the bomb squad to be called.

“Officer [Scott] Dressler, as he always does, helped organize the emergency services,” Superintendent Michael Tefs said. “And out of an absolute immense amount of precaution, the bomb squad showed up to solve the problem for us.”

Dressler is Revere’s school resource officer.

“That was just an unfortunate accident that happened,” Tefs said. “I just wanted to applaud our safety services.”

Bath teachers Jen Lovsey and Becky DeLauder were awarded a grant, which will allow third-graders to create an environment for raising butterflies and the plants necessary for the butterflies’ development.

The teachers needed a greenhouse to accomplish their goal, which they thought would be a good Eagle Scout project. Enter Revere freshman Henry Mealy and his friends, who agreed to build the greenhouse as his Eagle Scout project.

Revere High ninth-grade English teacher Sarah Pine, also director of the Revere Players, nominated Noah Restivo for the Cleveland Plain Dealer top stage performer of the year.

“So out of something like, they said, 200 nominations, I had to submit video of Noah’s performance [in the Crucible] and do a little write-up of why I found his performance was noteworthy, and thankfully the Plain Dealer agreed.”

Consequently, Restivo was recognized as one of the PD’s top stage performers of the year.

Richfield Elementary students Claire Opsitnick, Julia Klee and Clara Freitag were recognized for being Revere Ready.

Richfield Middle School students Lauren Bir and Luka Zlojutro were cited for qualities that meet the standard for a Vision of a Minuteman.

Revere students who take classes at Cuyahoga Valley Career Center placed high in several regional and state competitions.

Bella George won bronze at the regional graphic media Alliance competition. Isabel Samadi took first place at the regional HOSA Future Health Professionals competition. Logan Luther, Ava Sucato and Anna O’Banion were third-place finishers at the state skills USA competition. ∞
