#PLSFirstDay

Fall is here, the excitement and energy of back to school is all around us. Walking in the various schools and athletic fields, I get a few moments to reflect: I am the Luckiest Man in Plain Local. Making my way through Plain Center, then on to Middlebranch, the West and East campuses, I had many great teachers and made a lot of friends. Along the way in Mrs. Williams’ Spanish class I met a smart, tall girl. We shared many future classes, went to dances, Homecomings, and Proms. We stayed strong through college and grad school. We have been married for 34 years. I am the Luckiest Man in Plain Local. In 1999, I had the opportunity to move my family to Canton from Cincinnati. It was an easy decision: both Kim and I believed the opportunities that this school district could offer our sons were exceptional. Having our parents and other family nearby would allow our sons to have the influences that we believed were necessary in boys maturing to young men. I am the Luckiest Man in Plain Local. In 2012, after working on several school levy and bond issue campaigns, I realized I enjoyed working with the school district. The opportunity presented itself for me to apply and interview to become a member of the Board of Education. I have thoroughly enjoyed the people I have met and get to work with to help make this district stronger. I am the Luckiest Man in Plain Local. At school events, I have had the privilege of speaking and interacting with people as a parent and now as a School Board member. Recently, at the Plain Family Fun Day/Rotary Pancake Breakfast, I had the pleasure of speaking with many grandparents. I enjoyed hearing them talk about their grandchildren and their many school activities and scholastic accomplishments. I take great pride and joy in talking about our facilities, our staff, and our students. I wear my GO gear with confidence and pride. I am the Luckiest Man in Plain Local. This past spring, the GlenOak Eagle Athletic Association (GEAA) held its major fundraiser-a live and silent auction. I was the high bidder on ‘Being the guest Band Director” for a game. I will get to direct the pre-game performance and then at another game the half time show. Maybe I am the Most Nervous Man. I am Proud to be on the Board of Education and I enjoy working alongside my fellow board members and the administration to continue to provide the most opportunities and the highest quality of education that we can. Have a great school year and GO Eagles.

The sign was made in early 2016 as part of a design contest sponsored by the committee to raise awareness in Stark County. The sign was unable to be published due to copyright laws.

District Students Collect Hurricane Harvey Donations Students across the Plain Local School District got a lesson in empathy recently. After Hurricane Harvey left 30,000 people in need of temporary shelter in Texas, our students across the district wanted to know how they could help. Quickly, a community wide food donation was put into motion. Plain Local Schools partnered with the Akron Canton Food

Bank to build up their supply of non-perishable food items after learning that they planned to send three truck loads for victims of the Hurricane. The items in highest demand were cleaning supplies, bottled water, and easy snacks like granola and protein bars. The Plain Local Community came out in droves at all of our nine school buildings as

well as at home football games and our annual Family Fun Day to help others in need. Elementary schools like Frazer and Barr adopted schools 1,200 miles away in Houston, Texas in an effort to help with school supplies that were lost. At Frazer Elementary, it started small asking teachers for some of their supplies, and eventually blossomed into a full Frazer family project. The focus was for each student to try and bring in a pack of crayons, markers, or a glue stick to send down to the Houston area school. Within a week, several boxes were filled and ready to send off. Mrs. St.Clair and Mrs. Kelley’s classes at Barr Elementary have also “adopted” a classroom in Texas by collecting school supplies. At Oakwood Middle School, students wanted to know how they could help. They quickly organized the Hurricane Harvey Relief Club. Brainstormed by

8th grade student, Elaina Norris, and supported by Historical Literacy teachers Joanne Addessi and Zach Marzilli, students have been meeting after school to organize events. Oakwood is hosting various student participation events for

$1.00, such as Hat Day, to donate to a partner school in Houston. Oakwood students will participate in donations and collections throughout the month of September in hope of providing relief for the damage of Hurricane Harvey.

Glenwood Intermediate Teacher, Mr. Powell volunteered to get “dunked” at Family Fun Day on September 16 for Hurricane Harvey. Students who brought non-perishable food donations were given the chance to dunk their favorite teachers.

It’s Great To Show Off Reading Talent At Frazer This year students in kindergarten and first grade at Frazer Elementary will be showing off their emergent reading skills. This is all part of the “I Read To The Principal” program started by Mr. Easterling in hopes to promote confident readers in the early grades at Frazer Elementary. Another purpose of the program is to reduce any anxiety or stress that comes with going to the principal’s office. As Mr. Easterling stated it, “I want

students to see the office as a place where they can get help and support no matter what the situation.” Once a kindergarten or first grade student feels they can read a short article or story independently, they call down to the office and get to read to Mr. Easterling in his office. He focuses on the opportunity being a positive in the office; “We make a big production out of it, to promote the importance of reading and having the

confidence in their ability. Students sit behind my desk and read their book. The look of pride they have when we celebrate the occasion makes it all worthwhile.” Students receive a sticker and postcard

identifying that they read to the principal. Their picture goes up on the “I Read to the Principal” Wall of Fame in the hallway outside the office. Setting lofty reading goals for the students at Frazer

Elementary begins in kindergarten and first grades; “We hope to see all 138 students in kindergarten and first grade up on the board before the end of the year. We know it is possible!”

Camp TAFT Unites Teachers, Families

Mrs. Dombroski shows off her handmade rock .

Avondale Kindness Rocks Mrs. Dombroski’s class took part in The Kindness Rocks Project. This movement challenges students to paint a rock with a positive message and place it around the community for others to find. The project is based on the theory that one message at just the right moment can change someone’s entire life. Mrs. Dombroski’s 1-2 Blended class at Avondale started by reading stories about positive character traits, one being kindness. They brainstormed positive messages that could

be written on rocks and began decorating! Quotes like “Lend a helping hand” and “Love is everywhere” or simply “Be a friend” are some of the positive messages the kids created. The students will then take the rocks home and place them around the community. Under a park bench, in the library, or on a grocery store shelf are just some of the places you might find one of these special rocks. Maybe, just maybe, you will find one right when you need it most!

Student from Avondale smile as they participate in the Kindness Project

Wednesday, September 27, from 6:00-8:00, the Taft community came together for an evening of literacy, math and camping activities for its Fall Family event. Families participated in Marshmallow Math, Trail Mix Sort, Fishing for Words, and other assorted educational games. A camping photo booth was available for families to take pictures with their own devices. A book give away also took place. No camping adventure is

complete without pizza! By working together, teachers and families can

ensure academic success! Thank you to all of the families that participated.

Oakwood STEM Receives Thomas Edison Award The Ohio Academy of Science selected 58 Ohio Schools and 509 teachers to receive The Governor’s Thomas Edison Awards for Excellence in STEM Education and Student Research for their accomplishments during the 2016-2017 school year. Included in that list was Oakwood Middle School and the following teachers: Scott Laughman, Michele Hahn, Carol Raff, Sarah Pendleton, Matthew Carpenter, Lauren Sturiale, Mike Roberts, Stephen Tornero, Jeanette Garcia, Chris Donohue, Ed Keoshian, David Limbaugh, Ashley Kessler, Laura Schmidt, Brian Richeson, Allyson Sederland, Beth Waseity, Charles Julian, and Paul Cotton. Each school will receive a special Governor’s Award certificate, and each teacher will receive complimentary membership to The Ohio Academy of Science. The Technology Division of the Ohio Development Services Agency funded the program. The criteria for the Thomas Edison Award for Excellence are: (1) to conduct a local science fair with twelve or

more students, (2) qualify two or more of these students for one of the Academy’s 17 district science days, (3) have students participate in at least one or more youth science opportunities beyond the classroom such as a State Science Day, Science Olympiad, B-Wiser, visitors to museums, mentorship programs, and extended field trips and (4) convince external STEM professionals how and what extent the school’s program met the Academy’s definition of STEM education. The Ohio Academy of Science defines STEM education as both the mastery and integration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics for all PK-12 students. It incorporates scientific inquiry and technological design through studentfocused, project-based curricula to develop skills of communication, teamwork/ collaboration, creativity/innovation, critical thinking and problem solving. First established in 1985, the Governor’s Thomas Edison Awards recognizes Ohio schools and teachers who stimulate scientific student research

and technological design and extend opportunities beyond traditional classroom activities. Students must participate in one or more youth science opportunities beyond the classroom, including State Science Day, The Ohio Academy of Science Annual Meeting, Buckeye Science and Engineering Fair, Science Olympiad, and other structured STEM-related youth activates. “These schools and teachers push the boundaries of the traditional classroom by advising and mentoring student-originated research and other hands-on experiences”, said Michael E. Woytck, the Academy’s CEO. The Ohio Academy of Science initiated this educational partnership program in cooperation with The Office of The Governor and The Technology Division of The Ohio Development Services Agency to recognize schools and teachers for excellence in STEM education and scientific student research. Forty professionals – broadly representing STEM employers from business, industry, government, and academia – evaluated the applications in

a review process. Founded in 1891, The Ohio Academy of Science (OAS) is a membership-based, volunteer-driven, not-for-profit organization. The Academy is the leading organization in Ohio to foster curiosity, discovery, innovation, and problem-

solving skills in Ohio. OAS members are as diverse as the science taking place in Ohio, and our programs support science from pre-college and college students through scientific professionals. For more information about the OAS, please visit its website at http://www.ohiosci.org.

Information Night Features Problem Based Learning Oakwood’s 7th grade STEM Community hosted a Family Information Night; including a Problem Based Learning (PBL) Activity for families. The event was highly attended and families experienced working collaboratively to design, construct, and compete. Families were challenged to create the longest paper

chain out of one 11x14 piece of construction paper using tape, and scissors. The competition was close, but one family prevailed with a 45 foot paper chain! Congratulations to the Martens family! They left with a gift card to an area restaurant. Oakwood thanks all of the STEM families for their participation!

nix. In 2008, OhioHealth opened a new hospital and Sherrie was chosen to lead the development of the Women’s Health Service Line and Obstetrical program. Since opening, the maternity services at Dublin has become the destination for maternity services in the region and is planning their third expansion. She has established an outpatient Maternal-Fetal Medicine Service; developed a Community Prenatal Education Program; and established a Perinatal and Quality Review Program at Dublin Memorial Hospital. While at GlenOak, Sherrie participated in Home Economics and WorkStudy program, which afforded her the opportunity to begin training and working in local healthcare facilities. Sherrie has dedicated herself to her profession. Her passion and commitment to serving others provides clear purpose and direction. Barriers become opportunities. Recognizing a lack of prenatal education and preparedness for pregnant patients, she developed an OB Clinic prenatal education program. Before the era of Skype and Face-time, she facilitated and coordinated the first webcam birth in the region for military soldier(s) so that they could watch and be part of the birth of their baby while deployed. The community was so appreciative that donations were received to purchase equipment to enhance the video capabilities. Supporting the future of the profession of nursing, she participated in developing nurse mentorship programs, improving orientation programs, and implementing a formal evaluation process. The realization that community-based health care is essential to reducing infant mortality, Sherrie has lead and participated in many regional and hospital system initiatives to increase access to care for low income women, reduce disparities, and provide better support and education. Sherri is married to Cliff, and she is the mother of three sons, and has one grandson and granddaughter.

Township Winter Fest Planned

Plain Sets Salute To Veterans

In 2015, the Plain Township Board of Trustees recognized that veterans deserved a sacred place in Plain Township to reflect, pray, share memories and experiences and to be surrounded by the souls of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. In that vein, the Board of Trustees rededicated Schneider Park, at 1714 Schneider St. NE, to be named Veterans Park. They also committed to building a veterans’ memorial monument which was dedicated, along with a Blue Star Memorial Marker, on November 11, 2016 as part of the Salute To Veterans Event. This year, the tradition will continue. The day kicks off with a complimentary breakfast for all veterans at 8:00 a.m. at the Plain Township Fire Station at 1742 Schneider St. NE. We will begin our ceremony at 8:45a.m. with the National Anthem played by the GlenOak High School March-

ing Band, and our keynote speaker will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. Following our keynote speaker, there will be an official dedication of the flags. Joining the flags at the keystone monument are 6 granite benches representing each branch of the service. The dedication of the flags will take place at approximately 10:20 a.m. on the hillside around the monument. TAPS will play at 11:11 a.m. and will be followed by a complimentary lunch for all veterans. We encourage everyone to return at 5:30 p.m. for a flag retirement ceremony. Please join us on Saturday, November 11, beginning at 8:00 a.m. to say thanks to all those who have served or are serving, “Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid, they have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices.” President Harry S Truman.
