Dear Community, It is hard to believe snow is falling and the temperatures are getting quite cold. As we begin another holiday season, I would like to wish your family a safe and happy holiday. I know the hustle of a school year and many activities take all of us away from our family. My hope is that you will take some time to enjoy one another and reflect on the many blessings we have. I am honored to lead the Plain Local School District and feel extremely fortunate to live and raise my family in Plain Local. The fall season was full of activities and events across the district and throughout the state of Ohio. I have had the opportunity to watch our kids perform and compete in numerous competitions, events, and performances. After leaving every activity, I take time to reflect on the talent and ability of our students. They dedicate many hours outside of the classroom in activities they love. Their passion and dedication is seen at every event, and they represent the community with great pride. I would also like to thank our entire staff. They are the best in Stark County and constantly strive to provide the best learning environment for all students. No matter their role in the district, I continue to be impressed with their commitment to excellence. They are all Champions! Finally, thank you for your continued support for the Plain Local School District. It takes all of us working together to have a successful school district. I enjoy meeting and talking with many parents and community members throughout our diverse district. Our partnership is the key to our success now and into the future. All of us play an important role for the future of Stark County. I look forward to starting another year in 2019. The Plain Local School District is strong, and ready to serve you and your family. Go Eagles!
Brent May, Superintendent

TUTORING IS A SLAM DUNK AT AVONDALE Thirty-one fourthgrade students at Avondale Elementary have become Student Leaders and Mentors (SLAM) for students in kindergarten through third grade. These SLAM tutors went through an application and interview process with Avondale principal, Mrs. Moff and school counselor, Mr. McCartney. The SLAM tutors were chosen for either full-time or part-time tutoring. The SLAM tutors will work with the younger students in the mornings from 9-9:20 a.m. They will work with the students on activities that are assigned by the homeroom teachers. Our SLAM tutors began working with younger student buddies at the beginning of November. Not only are they serving as tutors, they are forming bonds and serving as peer role models. Our SLAM tutors are learning to be leaders and the importance of being reliable, respectful and responsible. They are required to make up the morning work they miss as well as have excellent attendance, work habits and behavior. After having their monthly timesheets signed by their Evan Crissey works with La Trell Still as a part of the SLAM tutoring at Avondale Elementary. mentor teachers and their homeroom teachers, SLAM tutors turn those sheets into Mr. McCartney and earn a “payday.” SLAM tutors work for things like donated gift cards, extra responsibilities at school, Eagle badges and other donated items. Mrs. Moff believes that the payday goes beyond the actual donated items. She shared, “I love that our students can see the benefits of hard work through the payday items, like the gift cards. More importantly, our SLAM tutors are developing strong leadership skills that will also help them to be college and career ready. What a wonderful opportunity they have to make a difference in their little buddies’ lives as well. I am incredibly proud of them and excited to see where they will go this year and beyond.”
STUDENTS MAKE WORDS WALK AND TALK IN BARR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL’S FIRST VOCABULARY PARADE!
Students at Barr Elementary created costumes that sent a host of words marching across the grounds at Barr Elementary on Oct. 24, 2018. Parents were able to enjoy, applaud, and be amazed by our students’ ingenuity. The Vocabulary Parade was part of Barr Elementary School’s ongoing effort to increase word recognition among our students. The parade concept is based on Debra Frasier’s book, “Miss Alaineus, A Vocabulary Disaster,” where a student confuses the word “miscellaneous” for the person, Miss Alaineus. In this hilarious story, great embarrassment is assuaged by turning this mortifying mistake into a winning costume at the Vocabulary Parade. All 360 students participated in the Vocabulary Parade, which will now become a new tradition at Barr Elementary.

FRAZER ELEMENTARY AND WALSH UNIVERSITY CREATE TEACHABLE MOMENTS There has been quite a lot going on in the hallways and classrooms of Frazer Elementary this fall! Students are getting to know their new teachers, volunteers are starting to come back in to work with students and the school is up and running! There is something new happening--Walsh University is working with Frazer staff to create teachable moments for their education students and our Frazer students. On Mondays and Wednesdays, we have, at times, 15 Walsh education students coming in to work with first, third, and fourth-grade students. They are members of Dr. Brenda Roslerâ€™s courses at Walsh University and are working toward meeting their education requirements. The Walsh students are focusing in on their pre-student teaching methods, phonics, and reading assessment and intervention training. It has been a positive experience for our students to get more individualized instruction, all while these future teachers are learning from our staff as well. This has been a great experience that we are hoping could be the start of a great partnership between the two Plain Township educational institutions.
NEW PLAYGROUND EQUIPMENT AT MIDDLEBRANCH Middlebranch students and staff are thankful to our community for all of their support in helping the PTO raise funds to purchase new playground equipment! Middlebranch PTO focused their efforts on raising funds to purchase additional playground equipment for three years. PTO officers came to Mrs. Downing, Middlebranch principal, with the idea as the number of students at Middlebranch was increasing. They wanted to be sure that all students had something safe to do while at recess. They also wanted equipment that could be enjoyed by students of all grade levels. Fundraisers included schoolwide walkathons, pretzel and candy bar sales, quarter auctions and dine-outs. These events were supported by our Middlebranch community through purchases of what was being sold, pledges supporting our students during the walkathon, donations from community businesses for walkathon prizes, donations, vendors and bidders during our quarter auctions. The Plain Local Schools maintenance department assisted with the installation so Middlebranch could be sure that the equipment was installed properly and promptly. On Oct. 30, the students celebrated during a ribbon-cutting ceremony that took place at recess, with our PTO officers, past and present, cutting the tape.

At Taft Elementary, students are encouraged to write every day. Writing for a real purpose helps children have ownership in their work. Taft asked children to submit articles for the paper about an event happening at Taft. Three students worked together to write the following article from Mrs. King’s first and second-grade blended class. Our principal, Mrs. Milford, assigned a Principal Pumpkin Parade Challenge for the whole school! Each grade level had a different book report to complete with their favorite book. Students had to tell a summary of the book with key details. Included were the title, the characters, the setting, the problem, and the solution. Then each student had to decorate a pumpkin to look like the main character from the book! Kids shared these with the entire school in the gym. On a school day, the pumpkins were displayed in the hallway for all students to see as they paraded around. At 3 p.m., parents came in to view the pumpkins and got to have donuts and cider and learn about the importance of reading at home! It was so much fun and we (and our parents) learned a lot!
OAKWOOD CROSS COUNTRY MAKES DEBUT AT STATE MEET Oakwood Cross Country ran for the first time ever in the state meet. The boys team took second place overall and the girls team took sixth place overall out of 30 teams competing throughout the state.

Plain Local salutes Coaches Scott Laughman, Nicole Winkler and the cross-country runners for a Champion Season!
OAKWOOD STUDENTS MAKING A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE IN THEIR SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY Oakwood students have made an impact in their school community through their problem-based learning projects that have become reality. Students have taken initiative through their planning and connections to make their projects come to life. Oakwood students are champions because they champion for others! Filtered Water Bottle Filling Station: Eighth graders Jazel Issa, Caris Lantz, and Carmen Papaleo worked to fundraise and purchase two water bottle filling stations at Oakwood to provide clean-filtered and cold water for Oakwood. Their project is appreciated everyday by the staff and students at Oakwood! Dollars for Delaney: Seventh grader Abigail Watson sold bracelets and basket raffle tickets to memorialize her best friend, Delaney Riley. Abigail raised over $800 that she donated to Akron Children’s Hospital Heart Unit. Spirit Wear to Increase School Spirit: Eighth graders Madison Dentler and Natalie Stepanovich worked with Liquid designers to create Oakwood spirit T-shirts to sell to students and staff. They took orders last year for delivery this fall. The shirts are being worn and will be used as free entry to basketball and wrestling events to increase school spirit! Matt’s Mile: Eighth grader Xavier Grimwood wanted to do something to help Assistant Principal Matt Gagnon and came up with the idea of selling #GagnonStrong bracelets. The fundraising has evolved into an event sponsored by Our Journey of Hope and several restaurants “Give Back” nights. What a difference one person’s idea and caring can make! Pink Ribbons for Breast Cancer Awareness: Oakwood students Gabby Buckley, Olivia DeSarro and Corrie Schorsten made and sold pink ribbons for Breast Cancer Awareness during the last week of October. Donations will go to Aultman Hospital Breast Cancer Center on behalf of Oakwood. They are donating $124. American Flag Replacement Project: Seventh grader Makenna Avery has proposed for her problem-based learning a project to replace the worn flags in the Oakwood classrooms. She has reached out to the American Legion to research how to dispose of the older flags. She sold patriotic ribbons for the week of Veterans Day to collect funds to order new flags for our school.

GLENWOOD STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN “NIGHT AT THE RACES”
What does it mean to be an Eagle Champion? The focus at Warstler Elementary has been to acknowledge students and their accomplishments. One way is to make positive choices that positively impact others. For these students, staff acknowledge them as Eagle Champions. Staff members have Eagle Tickets that they can fill out, recognizing what a student has done to positively impact others. It could be anything from helping others to demonstrating leadership. These tickets are then put in our Eagles Nest in the office. The Eagles Nest was created and donated by Jeff Ramser. Everyday five tickets are drawn and those students are acknowledged for their positive choices. We make a difference at Warstler, one choice at a time.

GLENOAK HIGH SCHOOL BUSINESS STUDENTS PITCH BUSINESS IDEAS
On Friday Oct. 19, we held our Third Annual Junior Achievement Shark Investment Day in the business lab at GlenOak High School. Students, who had formed three companies based on their business strengths, presented their ideas to a panel of six local sharks. These sharks have had or currently hold roles in business such as CEO, CFO, founder, manager, owner, and sales. They were a tough group of critics, and offered our students many suggestions. In total, $1,600 was awarded to the three companies! This is a record amount of money for a JA Pitch Day at GlenOak.

CHILD & ADOLESCENT BEHAVIORAL HEALTH
UNDERSTANDING AND WORKING THROUGH CHILDHOOD TRAUMA Childhood trauma can be experienced in a variety of ways, and not all children respond to trauma alike. What can be considered “traumatic” for one child might not bother another—and how one child experiences the effects of trauma will surely differ from the effects felt by other children. There is no “one way” to understand childhood trauma, but there are several things we can do as parents, teachers, therapists, and community members to help children that are in need. The most important thing we can do is to understand what trauma can look like. Acting out or behavioral problems are chalked up to ADD, bad upbringing, or just “kids being kids,” but can sometimes be a sign that a child is suffering and is overwhelmed by their past experiences. We often think of trauma as being immediate, but it is common for children to go through a traumatic experience and show signs that they are coping well, only to experience the negative side effects of trauma later in life.
ways that are unappealing or that seem to indicate that they do not want interaction with adults (even when they do). Children may also respond by needing an excessive amount of attention and affection. Reacting in a way that demonstrates to the child that their needs are valid and understood is key. There are some ways that you can nurture your child’s emotional needs as they work through their trauma. Build their self-esteem by giving them age-appropriate tasks to complete. This also helps a child feel as if they have
Acting out or behavioral problems are chalked up to ADD, bad upbringing, or just “kids being kids,” but can sometimes be a sign that a child is suffering and is overwhelmed by their past experiences.
There are some other more noticeable signs that can indicate that a child has experienced trauma in their past: • A refusal to return to a certain place, especially if something traumatic has happened there • Problems with sleeping and eating • Problems focusing or a decrease in academic/athletic performance • A fixation on mortality and death • Unexplained irritability, anger, or anxiety • A need for, or a dislike of, attention • Fear of being abandoned
personal agency, and gives them control over something that they can easily manage. You can also create a routine to help children anticipate meal times, play times, and bed times. Many children find comfort in predictability and structure. Finally, the most important thing you can do for a child who has experienced trauma is listen to them. Listen to what they need to tell you, even if you think it’s irrelevant or that it doesn’t matter. They are telling you for a reason. Listen without judging—let them know that you are a person who they can tell things to without worry of punishment or repercussions. If you know a child who needs a little help meeting life’s challenges, please know that Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health is always available to children, young adults, and families that are still learning to cope and thrive. Seeing a therapist can be a key piece of a traumatized child’s well-being, and can provide tools and tips for families learning to move past trauma.
There are also emotional signs to watch out for that may indicate a child has experienced trauma in their past, such as low self-esteem, trouble forming bonds with parents or caregivers, trust issues, depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts or tendencies. These are definitely scary signs, and they should always be taken seriously. The good news is that there are things that parents and caregivers can do to help children who are dealing with trauma and its effects.
Our new location, operating in the GlenOak High School campus, is one of four locations where Child and Adolescent Behavioral Health provides health, hope, and happiness through mental and behavioral health services such as therapy, case management, trauma-informed day treatment, substance use and abuse treatment services, and much more. As a community resource, we want to stress the availability of our services to all in need in Stark County.
The best thing you can do for a traumatized child is to find them professional help. A therapist, counselor, or psychiatrist can help create an action plan for a traumatized child that will not only facilitate a supportive environment where they can work through their trauma, but can be helpful for families learning to provide the best possible care for those children.
If you or a loved one is in need of our services, please call one of our offices:
You also must learn to respond rather than react. Children that experience trauma can sometimes act out in

PLAIN TOWNSHIP HISTORICAL SOCIETY
The Plain Township Historical Society celebration of Glenwood High School’s 60th Anniversary culminates in a two-volume booklet on the history of Glenwood High School called “Educating Plain Township – Glenwood High School 1957-1975.” These booklets preserve the memories of Glenwoodites across the years. The response to our inquiries for information was overwhelming. It was wonderful to see the enthusiasm for Glenwood and its history. We are hoping these booklets continue the sharing of information so we can publish other volumes to the set. If you have play programs, concert programs, sports information, photos, stories, school newspapers or memorabilia, contact the Plain Township Historical Society to donate or make copies. Thank you to all that contributed items and stories. Without you, this publication was not possible. If you are interested in purchasing a copy of the two-volume set for $20, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our next installment in the “Educating Plain Township” series will be on Middlebranch High School from 1927 to 1957. If you have any mementos, stories or other information you can share, please contact us. Our intention with the “Educating Plain Township” series is to have each school covered in one of the books. This is where we need your help! Whether you were a student, teacher, administrator, staff or family member at any Plain Local School past or present, you can help. We are looking to capture what school life was like at these schools. PTHS is in the process of collecting photographs, yearbooks, articles, event programs, class photos, school newspapers, memorabilia and stories to help preserve this history. Please contact us if you have any items to share or donate. Help us preserve the history of education in Plain Township. We are “Educating Plain Township” about “Plain History.” Contact us at: email@example.com facebook.com/PlainTownshipHistoricalSociety or call 330-2242660

GIRL SCOUTS IN THE COMMUNITY On Sunday, Sept. 23, 2018, Girl Scout Troop 61713 comprised of Plain Local students, from seventh, eighth, and ninth grades, completed their Girl Scout Silver Award. The Silver Award is the highest community service award a Girl Scout Cadette can earn. These girls decided on putting together a pasta dinner, called Pasta with a Purpose, to benefit an area family battling cancer for the second time. These young ladies contacted an area organization called Our Journey of Hope from Grace United Methodist Church, a cancer care ministry that supports cancer patients and their loved ones in the community, and asked for their support and guidance. These young ladies worked very hard this past summer organizing and collecting donations from area businesses, spreading the word about the event on the radio, in the newspaper, at community events, and by hanging posters. They organized every detail, down to the decorations on the table. All this in addition to the proceeds of selling tickets or receiving monetary donations goes toward their Silver Award, which will support the Petro family from Plain Local. The girls were able to raise more than $1,000, which they are planning to use to provide useful goods and services to the family including groceries, meals, hiring of a service to come clean their home, and any other services they may need over the next year. Ohio Senator Scott Oelslager attended the dinner and spoke with the Petro family about their struggles with cancer. The troop also collected donations such as journals, scarves, books, and fluffy socks for Our Journey of Hope to put into baskets they provide to area cancer patients. These young ladies learned a lot over the last several months about how cancer impacts the entire family unit. They learned they cannot only help the specific member of the family that is battling cancer, but they can also help and support those closest to them, their family members. This project brought different people together to help a single family battling cancer. It helped to create awareness around our community of the good we can do.
HORTICULTURE DEPARTMENT SEEKING DONATIONS FOR OLD POTS The horticulture department at GlenOak High School is looking for pots that could be used for their class. Examples of what they need are shown in the photo below. If you have any old pots that you no longer use, please consider donating them to the program. Donations can be dropped off to the greenhouse at Oakwood Middle School or email Don Fogle at firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate.

ANNUAL ALL-SCHOOL BALLET: SNOW WHITE The Plain Local Schools Foundation and Alumni Association was pleased to present the 2018 all-school ballet under the direction of Jacquenette Blaydes. Plain Local Dance and Saturday Enrichment students, ages 3 years through 12th grade, performed an original choreographed performance featuring the story of Snow White on Nov. 16 and 17. The ballet is an annual fundraiser for the Plain Local Schools Foundation and Alumni Association. Established in 1989, the Plain Local Schools Foundation and Alumni Association was formed to build and maintain a stewardship of community trust and to provide funding for superior, innovative educational programs which exceed the financial resources of the Plain Local School District. Donated funds support Star Grants for teachers, scholarships for graduating seniors, the Eagle Pride program, and other district initiatives and projects. Non-perishable food items were also collected to support the ninth-grade canned food drive at all public performances. Food collected was given to a local food pantry that assists families over the holidays. Thank you to all who attended the performances and supported the Plain Local Schools Foundation and Alumni Association. If you would like to donate to the Plain Local Schools Foundation and Alumni Association, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
