Help Teens KNOW! How To Set Dating Boundaries
February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month. This month, we highlight the fact that one in three teens will experience physical or sexual abuse, or both, and we emphasize efforts and conversations with our children on the importance of healthy relationships.

In the previous tip, Know! Love is Respect, we shared the relationship spectrum, a guide to help young people understand the differences between healthy, unhealthy, and abusive dating relationships.

Keeping our Students and Staff Safe
Safety is now always a concern for schools, staff, students and parents. There are districts, business, and venues in the news many times a year. We do not want that to be here in Greenville. So, as a district we take steps to protect our students and staff. 

Staff and students are trained using the ALICE system. ALICE stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate. The order of use of this system is dependent on the situation at hand. Staff and students practice these techniques each year and discuss the best use of these strategies. School districts in the State of Ohio are required to complete drills each year and report the activities to the Ohio Department of Education (ODE). School districts are also required to evaluate their Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) annually and rewrite the complete plan every three years. Our plan was successful approved by the ODE on February 10, 2019 and the Greenville City School Board approved the plan on February 21, 2019. The plan was a united effort with the school district, Greenville City Police and Fire Departments and the Darke County Emergency Management Agency.

Happy CTE Month
February is known for love and it is the PERFECT month to celebrate CTE Month.  That’s because students, families, employers and educators LOVE Career Technical Education (CTE)! Please join Greenville High School Career Technical Education Center (G-CTEC) in celebrating CTE Month!

According to aeseducation.com, Career and technical education (CTE) is quickly becoming the hottest topic in education news throughout the United States. That is probably because CTE is cutting-edge, rigorous and relevant technical skill training that prepares students for high-wage, high-skill, high-demand careers. CTE is one of the most important parts of the modern American education system because it allows students to acquire and apply necessary technical knowledge with 21st century skills that transfer into college and career readiness.

Know! Love Is Respect
Dating relationships can be tricky at any age, but especially for young people who are navigating uncharted waters. Have you talked to your tweens/teens about what positive, healthy dating relationships look like? There’s no time like the present, as February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month.

We like to think of young love as innocent and sweet. But unfortunately, teen dating violence is much more common than most people realize. According to loveisrespect.org, one in three teens will experience physical or sexual abuse, or both. Therefore, it is critical for us to have ongoing conversations with our children on the subject.

“Dating violence is preventable, especially if education about healthy relationships starts early,” said William Wubbenhorst, Associate Commissioner for the Family and Youth Services Bureau within the Administration for Children and Families.

Greenville Elementary School Promotes Positive Behavior with Students
Greenville Elementary School, through a grant provided by the Ohio Department of Education, is teaching positive behavior to all elementary students through a collection of classroom tools called the PAX Good Behavior Game. The PAX Good Behavior Game is a preventive intervention used by teachers and schools to teach self-regulation, self-management, and self-control in young people. When teachers are equipped with the strategies to teach these skills to children - in addition to academics - they create a nurturing environment that has an impact on young people with astounding lifetime effects. These effects have a dramatic impact on children, schools, and communities.

Students learn the word “PAX”, which means peace, to describe the good behaviors they want to create, and the word “Spleem” (a made-up word) to describe those behaviors they want to decrease (such as talking out-of-turn, or disrupting other students).

In 1996, Dolly Parton launched an exciting effort to benefit the children of her home county, Sevier County, in eastern Tennessee.

Know! How to Keep Kids in Focus If Divorce Occurs
As the holiday season came to a close, a new, far less joyful season began—the divorce season. January is known as a time of new beginnings; wiping the slate clean and starting fresh. For many married couples, that unfortunately means separation and divorce. In fact, January sees such a spike in marriages being ended that it is recognized as National Child-Centered Divorce Awareness Month.

Why the child-centered focus? Because as painful as separation and divorce are for the couple going through it, they can be devastating and disastrous for the children involved. National Child-Centered Divorce Awareness Month was created to alert parents about the potential effects of divorce on children, and to help protect young people’s emotional, psychological, and physical well-being.

Know! How to Fight Teen Depression
Teachers: We encourage you to share the following Know! Parent Tip with parents you know via email, a parent newsletter, during parent-teacher conferences, or however you communicate with them. The holidays can often be a stressful and difficult time for some teens. The more parents and teachers know what to look for and how to help, the more likely those teens will have the skills and strategies they need to thrive.

The holiday season is filled with peace and joy for many, yet sadness and despair for others, creating the perfect storm for the onset or worsening of depression.

The RTI (Response to Intervention) process and its benefits. . .
The RTI (Response to Intervention) program is a program designed to identify at risk students grades K-12 who are struggling in school academically or behaviorally. Progress of these students is monitored, research-based interventions are applied and the frequency/intensity of these interventions are adjusted, as needed. If data is collected and interventions are provided, students with learning disabilities or other impairments are identified and can be moved to other appropriate programs and plans to fit their needs.  Students are placed into three tiers based on the severity of their needs.

Know! The Red Flags of Teen Depression
It’s December; tis the season to be jolly. That’s easier said than done for many people, adults and teens alike. All the hustle and bustle can worsen the symptoms of those who already suffer from anxiety and depression into. And for others, the holidays can create the perfect storm for the onset of symptoms.

Students Making a Difference
     As educators engaged in making the school the best that we hope it can be, we are continually looking for ways to improve what we do.  We have spent time over the past few years meeting with parents through a Parent-Teacher Partnership initiative for the Middle School.  Through these conversations, we have been able to identify areas where parents from all walks of life see needs for improvement in the way we do business as a building.  We also identified methods for improving these areas during these discussions.

Know! To Put Kindness into Action
As it turns out, being a teen is not as carefree as we adults would sometimes like to think. In a 2018 study conducted by PEW Research Center, it appears teens have a host of problems and pressures weighing them down.

When 13 to 17-year-olds nationwide were asked about a variety of issues plaguing fellow youth in their community, they named mental health, specifically anxiety and depression, as the number one problem. Seven in ten young people shared this same concern, regardless of gender, race or socioeconomic status. Bullying came in second, with more than half of all teens saying it was a major problem where they lived. Next in line was drug addiction, followed by underage drinking. The silver lining here is that even though about half of all teens see drinking and drug use as a major issue among their peer group, less than one-in-ten report feeling a lot of pressure to personally use drugs or drink alcohol.

21st Century Learning
How many times have we heard the phrase 21st Century Learning in the last several years?  It may be hard for us to count!  Since Ohio developed a new set of learning standards, the call for 21st Century Learning has been at the heart of the education debates.  So, what does that mean and how can we help every student access 21st Century Learning?

Know! To Put Kindness into Action
While there appears to be a designated “day” on the calendar for everything these days, World
Kindness Day is one to celebrate and share with the young people in our lives. It takes place annually
on November 13th, and promotes putting kindness into action through caring and compassionate
acts. In a world where far too many youth face bullying, deal with anxiety and depression, and fight
the pressures to succumb to a variety of risk-taking behaviors, why not encourage kindness and
compassion? The benefits can be far-reaching and long-lasting.

Greenville Middle School is “ALL IN”!
What does it mean to be “All In”?  Greenville Middle School students can tell you and show you.  Last March Gian Paul Gonzalez, a motivational speaker, came to GMS (thanks to a grant from the Coalition for a Healthy Darke County), to encourage students to be prepared for the challenges of life as well as to be “All In” and make positive life choices.

Know! Alert - Weed Awareness
The U.S. Surgeon General has issued an advisory regarding marijuana use and the developing adolescent brain. He states that the increases in access to this drug, in multiple and highly potent forms, along with a false and dangerous perception of safety among youth, merits a nationwide call to action.

Weed – as most young people call it – is a highly used drug among adolescents in the U.S., second only to alcohol. Nearly 14% of eighth graders, 33% of tenth graders, and 44% of twelfth graders report having used marijuana at some point in their youth.

Graduation Requirements
Students in the class of 2020 have five different pathways to meet the requirements for graduation.  The first pathway requires students to earn a minimum of 18 points in the end-of-course state tests.  They must earn at least four points in English, 4 points in math and 6 points in social studies and science combined.  The tests include English I and II, Algebra I, Geometry, Biology, U.S. History and Civics.  This pathway is a demanding academic pathway requiring students to score high marks to earn the eighteen required points.

Greenville City Schools and Community to Focus on Bus Safety Oct. 21-25
Greenville City Schools and the surrounding community will join with other schools and communities to recognize National School Bus Safety Week this week.  The national theme this year is based on a child’s statement: “My school bus, the safest form of student transportation.”  

We all should remember that when everyone does their part (school bus drivers, parents, students, and surrounding motorists) that there is no safer place for a student than on the school bus.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) tells us that students are about 70 times more likely to get to school safely when taking a school bus instead of travelling by car.

Know! To Practice Good Sportsmanship
The benefits of participating in sports are vast. Sports help build character, boost self-confidence, strengthen perseverance, promote discipline, enhance physical and emotional health, develop teamwork skills, and promote healthy competition. Sports also provide children with additional supervision and additional mentors to help guide them as they grow, which is monumental. In fact, a study by Big Brothers Big Sisters shows that youth are 52% less likely to skip school and 46% less likely to use drugs when they have a caring adult mentor in their lives. Sports also give young people a focus, and another reason to say “no” to substance use and other risky behaviors.
