HIGH SCHOOL HAPPENINGS
Doug McGlynn, High School Principal

Unlike the freezing cold months of winter, March brought us some warmer temperatures and much needed sunshine. We finally saw grass and talk of spring was everywhere.  March was a very active month for all of our students, academically as well as athletically. Winter sports were concluding their seasons while our spring sports were beginning to practice. The Lady Blue Devils finished another 20 win season along with winning the ITCL Championship as well as being named District Champions. Consequently, they earned their second appearance in the Regional semi finals. The boys’ team finished strong with their first winning season in seven years finishing with a record of 16-8. Congratulations to all of our coaches and athletes on their great seasons! Our junior high teams also had winning records and finished in the top portion of the ITCL. We are looking forward to great seasons in the future.  Some of the other activities our students were involved in during March included the Physics Bridge Building Competition at Youngstown State, where the team of Aleah Hughes, Ethan Grim, and Tim Coler took first place and the team of John Clegg, Nolan Snyder, and Ian Hames finished fourth out of 32 teams. The National Honor Society held their second blood drive of the year on March 23, with the American Red Cross co-sponsoring the event. On April 1, the National Honor Society held its annual induction ceremony bringing 18 new members into our chapter. Our keynote speaker this year was Mr. Jim Tressel, President of Youngstown State University. After this impressive ceremony, all members and their families were treated to a catered lunch at Ala Carte in Canfield.  

Another activity for our students was the winter homecoming dance.  Congratulations to Taylor Wilson who was voted winter Homecoming Queen by her classmates. Students danced the night away and everyone had a great time. Also, Taylor Garner represented the middle school in the Vindicator Spelling Bee for a second year in a row with great success. On Saturday, March 21, senior Emily Henderson represented Western Reserve High School at the annual Y.W.C.A Young Women With Bright Futures Awards Program.  

Lastly, our students in grades 6-12 completed their first month-long round of state-mandated testing.  The month began with the PARCC and AIR exams and closed with the Ohio Graduation Test.  New this year, the PARCC and AIR exams are mandated by the state and will be repeated in early spring with the end of the year exams.  Our students in grades 8 through 11 have also started to schedule classes for the 2015-2016 school year.  It is hard to believe we are almost done with the current year.  Our eighth graders closed the month with a tour of the MCCTC, learning what programs are available to them upon entering their junior year in high school. 

In closing, we at Western Reserve Middle/High School wish you a wonderful Easter holiday and a restful spring break.

     With the large amount of technology available to students today, here is a few online safety tips to share with your family.  Although it may seem common sense to some, we need to remember these tips every day.

  1. Do not share personal information online.  Keep information about yourself private.  This includes information about your family, your school, your phone number, and your address.
  2. Be careful what you write or upload.  Think twice before you post or say anything online.  Once it is out in cyberspace, it is there forever.  Do not post anything that you would not want your family, other students, teachers or current and future employers to see!
  3. Connect with care.  Do not click on links or open emails from people you do not know.  Cyber criminals use emails and links that look okay to lure people into clicking.  If you think an offer is too good to be true, it probably is.
  4. Use strong passwords.  Try not to use the same password for multiple sites.
  5. Keep your belongings safe.  Lock your computer and your cell phone.
  6. Be a good online citizen.  Understand that what you do online is the same as what you do in person.
  7. Speak up!  If you see something bad or inappropriate online, are contacted by someone you do not know or do not want to talk with, or see cyber bullying taking place, do not retaliate.  Talk to a trusted adult and work together to solve the problem.
