1 North Olmsted High School Quarterly Newsletter Vol. XV - No. 1 - November 2009 Dear Parents and Guardians: As we look at the calendar, it s hard to believe we have completed one quarter of the school year already? The first day of school seems to have been yesterday, but in reality, we are actually closer to the semester end! If the year seems to be going quickly to you as well, hopefully it is progressing successfully. If it is, congratulations. Keep up the good work, and thank you for your effort. If the year is not going as hoped, let s get together and find out why, and figure what can be done about it. Contact the teachers, Guidance Counselors, and Administration to come up with a plan for success if needed, a plan that needs to include the parent and student as well. Although the year is moving quickly, it s certainly not to late to improve. Our goal is to improve each and every day. Together, we can accomplish it. As we move through the year, I d like to identify the four primary goals I have for the school year from an academic perspective. First, we need to help our students improve their success in both the Reading and Math areas. These are two areas in which we did not meet Adequate Yearly Progress last year, and we need to do all we can to help all of our students in these areas. Secondly, we need to continue looking for ways to limit distractions National Merit Commended Student - Alexis Goots National Merit Semifinalists - Eric Marquard, Rahul Mital, Laz Andrako and hindrances to instruction. We are challenging each other to come up with varied approaches to school discipline, focusing on keeping students in class for instruction. Along the same lines, we are focusing on the importance of attendance, and being here on time. Simply put, our teachers cannot teach if the students are not in class. Next, we continue our concentration on the freshman, doing all we can to get them on their way to a high school diploma. Lastly, we are looking to encourage more students to challenge themselves by taking an Advanced Placement Course. We feel more of our students should be doing so. Please help us with each of these goals at home by encouraging your children to take school seriously, and to support them in their academic endeavors. If you d like further detail on the goals, give me a call at school. I d love to discuss them with you. From a non academic perspective, the goal is simple. We want our students to be involved in as many positive, co-curricular activities as possible, to have fun doing so, and to represent our school and community in a fashion that makes their families proud of them. Congratulation to all of our students for a fine start to the year. Let s keep up the great work. As we approach the holiday season, I wish all the best for you and your families. May all the joys of the holiday season be with you over the next few weeks. Thank you for allowing me the privilege of being your Principal. I look forward to seeing you at school. Go Eagles! The best resource we have for student safety is good communication. Students and parents need to know that they should always report their concerns or observations Main Office - Assistant Principals Tracy Kuhn Chris Caleris Tom Watts Principal s Office Jeffrey M Stanton Attendance Office Athletic Office Guidance Office

The Board of Health has advised school districts that the flu season has hit earlier than usual this year, and we should expect to have an increase in students and staff absent from school with both seasonal and H1N1 flu symptoms. To help prevent the spread of the virus, we are asking parents to keep their children home if they are sick Our goal remains to keep our schools open as appropriate and to maintain our focus on prevention and good hygiene. We ll keep you informed of any changes in thestrategy should the need arise. Please refer to our district website or the Cuyahoga County Board of Health website for any questions or updates concerning the H1N1 cases, especially the Emergency Warning Signs and the information on the Seasonal vs. H1N1 flu symptoms. Be assured that we are proactively monitoring the situation each day. Please feel free to contact the office or the school nurse if you have specific questions or concerns. The following websites have up to date information:

4 Attendance Office - Helpful Tips To avoid a day of unexcused absence, parents must call the attendance office within 48 hours of the absence with an accepted excuse for the absence (see page 10 of the student handbook.) Students are permitted 3 emergency tardies per quarter, i.e. car problems, power outages, etc. Use them wisely! Attendance Office Phone Numbers Secretaries: Mrs. Stanko Mrs. Inman 7:15 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Attendance Office The 24-hour Voic line X 7425 (SICK) School Closings When schools are closed due to weather, the decision is based upon what is in the best interest of the health and safety of students. A decision is made as early as possible; however, it is often necessary to wait until the early morning hours. When the superintendent determines that it is necessary to close our schools, the district calls a computerized network which then contacts many television and radio stations Even when schools are open during inclement weather, parents certainly can decide that they do not wish their children to wait for a bus or travel to school. If a parent keeps a child home due to weather conditions, the student is excused for the day but, according to Ohio law, must be counted absent. Additionally, please note that when schools close for weather, evening meetings and activities are cancelled.

8 Key Club Fall Bloodmobile by Alyssa Johnston The American Red Cross needs 900 pints of blood per day. Seventeen percent of all this comes from high school students like us. Friday, October 23, 2009 the North Olmsted High School Key Club held our blood drive in the back gym. It was a great success! This year s new rule of 16 year olds becoming donors brought in many more people. All the blood that was donated was used within 24 hours. The staff from the Red Cross was very experienced and knowledgeable. We hope to have an even larger success at our next blood drive in late March 23, Thank you to the 61 donors who made a difference. The Key Club Bloodmobile volunteers included: Brittany Kemp, Alyssa Johnston, Taylor Neundorfer, Josh Stinga, John Feckley, Jackie Humenik, Jordan Zook Chinese Field Trip By Iman Hassouneh & Ms.Wang On Tuesday, October 22 Chinese students at the high school had the privilege of visiting the Cleveland Public Library Main Building and the Chinese grocery store on Payne Avenue. This trip enhances the students knowledge of the growing of the Chinese community in Cleveland and the importance of learning Chinese. It provided them with a practical experience to compare and contrast the Chinese and the American culture concerning the literatures and the food. In the library, students were able to discover Chinese writing styles and news. The Chinese collection in the Cleveland Public Library has been tripled during recent years. The expansion of the Chinese collection indicates the growth of the Chinese community as well as the Chinese programs in Cleveland areas. The trip ended with a lunch at a Chinese restaurant. The students were delighted to get the chance to use chop sticks and trying the different types of meats. Students like Eleni Santaveli enjoyed learning about Chinese cooking products. The Chinese field trip was indeed a very much a wonderful and enriching experience!

9 National Honor Society Service Hours The members of the National Honor Society are selected based on four qualities: scholarship, leadership, character, and service. After induction into the Society, the members are required to continue their service both as part of the group and individually.

This could include (but is certainly not limited to) helping out an elderly neighbor, working at a soup kitchen or food bank, visiting the lonely at a nursing home, volunteering at a hospital. What a wonderful way for our youth to learn the importance of giving back to the community! Red Ribbon Week The Wunderkind chapter of the National Honor Society participated in the Red Ribbon Week campaign. The members helped Ms. Allegra tie red ribbons on cars before the Friday football game on October 23. They also helped Officer Carbone distribute bottles of water to fans who were wearing their seatbelts. Annual Flower Sale The annual Sweetest Day flower sale took place in October. Members sold 1100 flowers for $1.00 each. Flowers were delivered on Thursday, October 15. Proceeds from the sale will help to fund service projects as well as the annual scholarship awarded to a deserving member.
