HIGH SCHOOL HAPPENINGS
Doug McGlynn, High School Principal

The month of February was certainly a weather nightmare for school districts throughout the area.  School delays and cancellations dominated our world, backing up athletic tournaments and school schedules.  As our basketball programs begin to wind down, we turn our attention to tournament play and the March game schedule.

Several changes in testing mandates were evident throughout the month of February.  Paper-pencil versions of the performance-based assessments in the 6th and 8th grade English Language Arts classes were administered to all.  Starting in March, the 6th, 7th, and 9th graders will start with the PARCC Assessments online in English and Math.  We will also be testing our Physical Science, American History, and Government students with the paper-pencil versions of the Ohio Career Based Assessments (AIR). OGT testing will follow the week of March 16-20.  Please encourage your children to get a good night's sleep, eat a good breakfast, and come prepared to do their best!

Our current dual credit program--College In High School--will be changing to the College Credit Plus Program.  The CC+ Program is very similar to the College in High School Program but requirements to enter the program have changed.  We will hold an informational meeting for parents and students who are interested in learning more about the program on March 11 at 7 p.m. in the Cafetorium.

Homecoming festivities were held on February 28 in the Reserve Gymnasium, where students celebrated to the theme of "Candyland".  The dance was sponsored by Student Council.  During the month of March, our Spanish National Honor Society will be sponsoring a new or gently used book drive for Akron Children's Hospital.  Books can be dropped of at the Middle School/High School office.

     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.
