Out of the Blue Celebration
GHS "Out of the Blue" Celebration

Students Analyzing Data
Mobile Electronic Device (Meds)
Data Collection at GHS

Today’s advances in technology provide great opportunities and obstacles in the classroom. Mobile electronic devices such as cell phones, for example, can be used as tools to enhance the educational experience when incorporated into instructional activities. However, they may also prove to be classroom distractions when students access them during instructional activities not intended for their use. On Friday, November 14 GHS students viewed a lesson regarding appropriate versus inappropriate mobile electronic device use in the classroom. Beginning today, November 17 through Wednesday, November 26 GHS will be analyzing the referral data specific to mobile electronic devices to determine possible trends regarding student use of MEDs. The data may also guide future lessons on appropriate versus inappropriate use of such devices in the classroom, as well as in the real world.

Titan Superheroes

Superheroes Spotted Throughout District!
Now in its second year at Glenwood Elementary School, 37 fourth grade boys took part in the leadership program, Titan Superheroes the week of November 3. The program is expanding throughout the district, and will be held Dec. 1-5 at Chatham Elementary; Dec. 8-12 at Ball Elementary, and in the spring at GIS. Superheroes is the brainchild of Glenwood High School senior, Eli Day. With help from his mom, Crystal Day, a fourth grade teacher at GES, and PE teacher, Pam Hogan, Superheroes was developed to teach boys how to become better leaders and better people. It includes a physical activity, team building exercises and an education component. In addition to Eli, other high school students helping lead the younger students are: Sam Anderson, Cole Harper, Max Day, and Drew Parriott.
 
Many thanks to our sponsors! (click for listing) Without their support, far fewer students would be able to participate.
