hat beaut y, advent ure and fun that’s all wrapped up in a publication, right here in your mailbox and well before the fall. We welcome you to our annual publication that captures the spirit of a season that has become the favorite of many. Readers gave us input that they thought we should move the publication earlier to allow for better planning, and so it be done; whereas in years previous, the magazine would have come out well after the schools were in session. Take a look at our editors’ choices of what they see as the “musts” of the season. I readily admit that you better be prepared to get a scare at the Dent Schoolhouse. But oh there is so much more to do in the Tristate! And don’t even get me started for the kick off of the arts season and my impatience to mark the must do’s in the calendar. We also included our annual Outstanding Educators feature and its accompanying 2013 Private School Guide, focusing on the talent and professionalism of those teachers that greet our children for another year of achievement and growth. My intuition tells me that where our schools go, so does our communities and businesses, and our teachers are a group that rightly deserve our support and recognition. Harvest. Gather. Enjoy. It’s what we at Cincy call the Fall Spectacular.

Thanksgiving Day Race Nov 28 Run over the river and through the streets of Northern Kentucky and downtown Cincinnati during the 104th annual race. It’s the oldest race of its kind in the Midwest, and nearly 15,000 runners finished the race in 2012. So keep the tradition alive before hunkering down to turkey and trimmings at grandma’s house. $30, thanksgivingdayrace.com

Straight Street Hill Climb Nov 24 It’s not a glamour race: It’s tough. Really, really tough. Tough enough that it could make an Iron Man competitor anxious. For those who don’t know it, this race is short, less than half a mile, but incredibly steep. The race began nearly 40 years ago, but no one has ever completed the course in less than two minutes, unless you count the bike riders who have their own heat. 9am; cyclists, 9:30am, 411 Straight St., Cincinnati, straightstreethillclimb.com.

Progress In the Park By Mike Boyer

A

six-year, half-mill levy approved by Butler County voters in 2010 has been key to the revitalization of MetroParks of Butler County, which owns or manages 10 parks across the county. The levy, the first approved for the park system, costs the average home owner about $15 a year but has allowed MetroParks to reopen several parks closed due to lack of funds, invest in repairs and maintenance and team up with other organizations across the county for park amenities. “We’ve really changed our model,” says Kelly J. Barkley, community relations coordinator. “We’re actively looking for more ways to use dollars from our park owners (taxpayers) and leverage that

with other organizations for the benefit of MetroParks.” The biggest and best example to date is the partnership with the Butler County Visitors Bureau for a $3 million enhancement of the 400-acre Voice of America Park off Tylersville Road in West Chester. The project, to be completed next year, consists of 22 multipurpose natural grass fields for football, soccer, cricket and field hockey. The fields will expand opportunities for local residents and create venues for state and regional athletic competitions that are expected to draw out-of-town visitors to the county. With that in mind, the Butler County Visitors Bureau agreed to contribute $1 million over 10 years for the complex. The park enhancement is expected to generate enough revenue to cover the initial investment and operating costs. Another example: MetroParks recently took over management of a section of the Great Miami Recreation River Trail in the city of Middletown in a collaboration with the city and the Miami Conservancy District. Barkley said MetroParks is continuing to look for collaboration opportunities with other organizations for everything from playground equipment to educational programs across all its parks. This year, she said, MetroParks will begin master planning for future improvements, seeking public input, for four more parks: Rentschler Forest in Fairfield Township, Chrisholm in Madison Township, Woodsdale Regional Park near Trenton and Forest Run in Ross Township. With a mission to improve the qualit y of life in Butler Count y through

conservation, education and recreation, MetroParks traces its beginnings to the creation of the Butler County Park Board in 1955. At the time it managed just a few parks including Indian Creek Park in Reily Township and Four Mile Creek Park in St. Clair Township. Today, MetroParks encompasses more than 3,800 acres and stretches from Governor Bebb Park in Morgan Township to Sebald Park in Madison Township. The parks feature an array of historical, camping, fishing and recreation amenities. For example, Governor Bebb Preserve, named for Ohio’s 19th governor, has a recreated pioneer village with a half dozen early structures moved to the site. Sebald includes nearly 10 miles of the county’s only public horse trails. VOA Park has a 35-acre lake for small boats and fishing and hosts the Crazy Cardboard Boat Regatta that draws thousands to see if the handmade crafts will float each summer. As evidence of the growing popularity of MetroParks, Barkley points to a couple indicators. The number of household vehicle permits for park access issued last year grew 13 percent to 20,771 from 18,365 in the prior year. Annual vehicle permits, which are good for two years, are free to Butler County residents and $10 for others. Volunteer participation at MetroParks has also skyrocketed. The number of volunteer hours last year nearly doubled to 9,429 from 4,897 in 2010. “People really see the value in the parks,” she says.

State of The Arts THE FITTON CENTER CELEBRATES ITS 20TH ANNIVERSARY WHILE CONTEMPLATING THE IMPACT OF CREATIVE ARTS IN THE COMMUNITY. By Mike Boyer

W

hat’s the value of viewing a new artist’s painting, listening to a jazz vocalist’s stylings or learning how to play the violin? It’s something the leaders of the Fitton Center for the Creative Arts in Hamilton are in the process of trying to calculate. “If you talk to the Courtyard Marriott down the street, they’ll tell you they see about a 30 percent increase in revenues du r i ng Fit ton events,” says R ick H. Jones, Fitton’s executive director since its inception. Marking its 20th anniversary this year, the Fitton Center’s purpose is to provide unique arts experiences and to “build community excellence through the arts and culture.” Located at 101 S. Monument Ave., in downtown Hamilton, the non-profit center offers a wide variety of programs: visual and performing arts classes, exhibitions, entertainment and theater productions and informative luncheons. Estimates are somewhere between 50,000 and 55,000 people participate in Fitton’s various activities and events either in the center or off-site. The Center was a gift to the community from the bicentennial commission to commemorate the 200th anniversary in 1991 of the founding of Hamilton. The Center opened two years later, and the Carruthers Center for Arts and Technology was added in celebration of the 10th anniversary. In November, the Fitton Cemter will hold a celebration to mark its 20th anniversary and launch a multimillion-dollar fundraising campaign to make energy

The true value of the Fitton Center extends beyond dollars and cents, says Jones. “Since Fitton opened people are seeing more art in the community,” he says. “It’s had an impact on the community socially, culturally and educationally.” Economic calculations don’t measure other impacts such as on the low-income student who’s exposed to art or a theatrical performance for the first time. “It has really exceeded expectations,” Jones says. The Fitton’s free galleries feature changing exhibitions in an informal, family-friendly atmosphere. The ~*CReaTioN STaTioN*~, allows visitors to create and display their own artwork. The Center also features a student gallery, which allows budding artists of all ages to display their artwork.

Other features are the Celebrating Self’s luncheon series, the professional performances of Entertainment Plus!, the resident Mad Anthony Theatre Company’s off-beat plays, and Fitton Family Fridays, with entertainment geared to younger audiences. The Music Café, on the fourth Tuesday of the month, features an eclectic group of musicians. The Fitton also offers a wide variety of education classes for all ages and abilities on everything from drawing and tie-dye to yoga. “There’s a strong history of arts in the community here dating back to the 1800s,” says Jones, a major advocate of the downtown ArtSpace Lofts project. ArtSpace is a $10 million effort to convert the old Mehrum-Lindley Block building on High Street into 42 residential artist lofts. The project should be completed in 2015.

WINNER PROFILES STEPHANIE TEWES

Dean of Studies Covington Latin

As Dean of Studies at Covington’s prestigious Covington Latin School, Stephanie Tewes does it all—even more t ha n what one would expect from the traditional job description. For example, Tewes oversees student orientation, summer enrichment programs, weekly tutorial sessions, the mentor center, dual enrollment opportunities with Thomas More College, and much more. She also coaches girl’s softball, volleyball and swimming, and teaches courses in speech and study skills. And she likely knows all 270 students and most parents in the entire school by name. An Erlanger, Ky., native, an alumna of St. Henry High School and Northern Kentucky University, Tewes says some of her most rewarding experiences with the students are outside the classroom. She loves volunteering with students, such as the annual “senior citizens’ prom,” where students entertain older adults for a day playing games and just talking. “I love to see the kids open up with people they have never met, take the lead and ask about their lives,” Tewes says. And there is that swim team. For two years, she has taken teams to state finals. “It’s pretty exciting for a school of this size to be represented there,” she says. She also loves taking the students on European trips. “I traveled abroad when I was in college and I try to give these kids the same bug by seeing other cultures,” she says. Tewes believes in meaningful experiences are needed to develop wellrounded young adults. “My motto is, ‘It’s all about the kids.’ The looks on their faces when we are in Europe seeing the Colosseum for the first time are the things that make me happy.” ■ — Rick Bird

MICHAEL HENRY

2nd grade science subject leader Maple Dale Elementary (Sycamore)

Michael Henr y isn’t sure where he got the idea for the “peace box,” but he knows it empowers his kids. In Henry’s class, i f ch i ld ren a re having a problem they are encouraged to fill out a form explaining their issue and put it in the peace box. “We discuss it as a classroom community and help the kids solve their own problems, rather than just having the teacher take care of it,” Henry says. “It’s important at this age to put them in a leadership role and for them to take ownership of the problem. We all sit on the carpet, come up with five solutions and come back with the three best ones.” After graduating from Miami University in Oxford, Henry obtained a master’s in education from Xavier. He then started teaching second-graders at international schools in Asia. He has been teaching the grade ever since. “I’ve always had an interest in younger learners,” says Henry. “Kids don’t have any negative feelings associated with learning or schools at this age. I always feel as if I’m getting kids ready to learn. As they get older they can lose interest and perhaps lose confidence, but not in second grade. They are so positive wanting to please at this age.” Ultimately, Henry’s teaching mantra is pretty straightforward. He feels the golden rule applies to children too. “The level of respect you give the little guys should be equal to the level of respect you give in the adult world. They deserve every bit of our love and respect that adults in our world do.” ■ — R.B.

They are still curious and haven’t reached the point that they think they know everything. They are still able to be filled with that child-like sense of wonder.” His students may unknowingly benefit from Wood’s own life experiences as well.

General education teacher Symmes Elementary (Sycamore)

There is a small deciduous forest behind Symmes Elementary, complete with a stream, trees and critters such as deer, possums, raccoons, chipmunks, a red-tail hawk, rat snakes, turtles and salamanders. Thanks to Steve Reinke the eight acres is on its way to becoming a hidden gem, a life science lab he hopes will spur great things in his elementary students and older ones in the Sycamore Community district. “Anytime you give children an opportunity to explore rather than walking in a straight line on a trail, but actually dig in the dirt, look under a log or in the water, that is what they like to do,” Reinke says. Owned by the school system, the property has never been developed as part of a life science curriculum since the school was built on the property in 1990.

Africa, before getting involved with underwater data collection as a scuba diver at marine research centers in Honduras and the Bahamas. Wood, also the varsity wrestling coach, takes a group of students each summer to dives in Honduras after helping them get certified in scuba diving. Back in the classroom, Wood’s seventh-grade science curriculum is an amazing crash course in life sciences that involves the study of cell theory, chromosomes, evolution and anatomy. He has partnered with the Heimlich Institute to train seventh graders in the lifesaving technique and had the students do a presentation to younger grades. Wood’s class also wrote letters of encouragement to a patient who came

to visit after receiving an artificial heart. Wood remains committed to the freedom and creativity afforded by an independent school. His message to his seventh-graders: “Kids can learn they can influence the world now. They don’t have to wait for some unspecified adult time. They are citizens of the world now and can affect change.” ■ — R.B.

the area into a true educational nature center for the past five years. He has overseen cleanup of the property with a core of teacher and parent volunteers. Eagle scouts also have earned merit badges working on the infrastructure, building trails and other improvements. The Nature Trail at Symmes School now features two outdoor classrooms, a bird watching station, a native tree farm and a complete half-mile trail loop. Now that the property is becoming a usable nature center, teachers have begun incorporating it into their classroom curriculum. “Junior high students have studied the water quality in the stream,” Reinke says. “Some teachers do a scavenger hunt. Some look for fossils. Some have held creative writing classes.” The ultimate goal is for this working life science research lab to produce more environmental scientists from Sycamore schools in the years to come,” he says. “If

you can teach children the wonders of nature and observation, they can become better students and solve the complex problems going on in the environment.” ■ — R.B.
