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.

School Zone Safety
You’ve probably have noticed the extra congestion on the roads as school has started for our students in Darke County.

As school begins for many children, increased vehicles on the road and pedestrian foot traffic on sidewalks boosts the odds of potential school zone accidents. Drivers not only need to focus on the road ahead but also the surrounding areas during school hours when unpredictable children are present and darting across the street and jumping into buses and cars.

School District Report Cards
The Ohio Department of Education released Report Cards for school districts across the state last week. For the second time, schools and districts received an overall letter grade. This grade was calculated using results from six “components” — achievement, progress, gap closing, improving at-risk K-3 readers, graduation rate and prepared for success.

September is National Attendance Awareness Month!
Regular school attendance is so important it gets an entire month of recognition and celebration!

Many parents underestimate the importance of good school attendance, especially during the early years. Showing up for school has a huge impact on a student’s academic success starting in kindergarten and continuing through high school. While missing school a day here and a day there may not seem like much, missing just 2 days a month can drastically affect a student’s academic success. Those 2 days a month means your child is missing 10% of the entire school year! Unexcused and excused absences easily add up to too much time lost in the classroom.
