    Principals’ Reports: 

     

    Mr. Webb reported that the Elementary School honored Veteran, Mr. Rase as he prepared to leave on the honor flight trip to Washington DC.  Mr. Wilkie discussed the summer reading challenge for students and celebrated their achievements with a pancake breakfast.  Mr. Webb was happy to report that the Tiger Times (assembly) was held in the gym again, and it is great to have everyone back together.  He also reported that Kindness Day started out with the students planting flower bulbs along the front of the Elementary School building and they are looking forward to seeing them blossom in the spring.  The day ended with an assembly with Glen Colton who presented a program on kindness.  Mr. Wilkie discussed Fire Prevention day with the local fire department arriving during the morning fire drill.  They reviewed fire safety and the students were able to “tour” their emergency vehicles.  Mr. Webb discussed the Sown to Grow program and assembly that also touched on kindness.  He reported that the students are participating in Red Ribbon week, which focuses on drug prevention.  Mr. Wilkie explained a challenge he has been given to learn all of the Elementary students’ names by Monday, October 31, 2022, or be “slimed” by those he can’t remember.  As an added bonus, he stated that in order to promote character words each month such as kindness, confidence, gratefulness, etc., he has also challenged the students.  If they are found portraying those character values, they will receive acknowledgement “paws” placed on the cafeteria wall and the grade with the most will be able to help him make the “slime”. 

     

    Mrs. D’Amico reported that the local fire department came to the Middle School on October 14, 2022 and did a presentation on fire safety, first aid, and EMS response.  On a car donated by Karson’s, they demonstrated the “Jaws of Life” used to free victims trapped inside a car as the result of a motor vehicle accident.  Mrs. D’Amico also reported that the MHS is showing their support in breast cancer awareness.  The faculty and staff are wearing pink on Fridays during the month of October and are donating to PLUTA and Elizabeth Wende Breast Care.  The students have made and posted pink ribbons in the hallway honoring people they know who have been affected by cancer.  Mrs. D’Amico highlighted lessons conducted by Mr. Hasler in his Technology class and Mr. Hoy in his 6th grade Social Studies class that focused on how tools have evolved since the Stone Age.  The students were able to make their own hammers. 

     

    Mrs. D’Amico gave an update on how the new Middle School Cell Phone policy is working.  The majority of feedback has been positive.  She also gave an update on the Sown to Grow program regarding the social-emotional wellbeing of students at the Middle School level.  Information regarding this program will be shared in the next publication of the Connections School Newsletter.  

     

    Mrs. D’Amico reported that the High School has been off to a good start; the MTSS program is beginning and Sown to Grow is in its infancy stage as they are monitoring its use in the Middle School.  She reported that Mr. Ellis is working on scheduling the Driver Ed program.  She also reported on the Partners 4 Prevention Vape Prevention Campaign that Mr. Ellis is initiating.  The program offers vape sensors that can be used in the restrooms or other areas of the school.  If vaping is sensed, it will alert administrators with a location and time stamp for immediate intervention.  She stated anti-smoking and anti-vaping lessons are being taught in HS Health class.
