Middle School Film Project takes on Bullying

Why do some students bully each other?

Students from Reynoldsburg's Hannah Ashton Middle School, along with students from Groveport Madison Middle School and Hamilton Middle School, have worked since February to answer that question by writing and producing short films that discuss diversity and bullying.

Hannah Ashton's film, Different, was shown with films from the other two schools April 21 at the Gateway Film Center on the Ohio State University campus.
 
40 winning teachers each get $3,900

Forty teachers received the district's first Reynoldsburg Raider Fellowship Awards, thanks to school board action April 21 approving a plan to give each of them an engraved plaque and a check for $3,900.

Superintendent Tina Thomas-Manning said the Raider Fellowship Award recognizes teachers who "serve students in high-impact, expanded or nontraditional ways."

"It feels good to tell people what a good job they are doing," she said. "We received more than 50 nominations for these awards from principals and fellow teachers.
 
Forum Results: Parents favor art, music electives

Parents who attended two forums with Reynoldsburg school officials in March and April were overwhelmingly in favor of music and art as elective choices for their children, Superintendent Tina Thomas-Manning said.

Families from every school building attended the forums, which the district calls gallery input sessions.

"About 80 families attended the sessions and about one-third of those families attended both sessions," Thomas-Manning said. "They provided us good information to help us plan curriculum for next year."

Todd Hutchins, director of communications, said the fact that nearly a third of the 80 families attended both sessions "may have impacted the input we received from the community."
 
Raider Fellowship Awards Announced

I am proud to announce that 40 teachers have been selected as the first Reynoldsburg Raider Fellowship Award recipients. The Reynoldsburg Raider Fellowship award recognizes teachers who make a substantial impact in the school community, resulting in positive outcomes for children. These successes result from educators who voluntarily and passionately serve students in non-traditional, expanded, and/or hard-to-fill roles that greatly contribute to positive outcomes for both the students on their rosters and students beyond their classroom walls. Congratulations to all the Raider fellows; they are a role model to their peers, students, and community.
 
eSTEM Academy granted PARCC waiver

A group of 15 Ohio schools, including Reynoldsburg's eSTEM Early College Academy, have received state approval to develop alternatives to Ohio's newest state standardized tests, but the federal government must second that approval. Ohio Department of Education spokesman John Charlton said the schools that were selected to opt-out of the current state tests are a part of an Innovative Learning pilot program to develop alternative tests that would match each school's specific educational program.

Genius Hour Fair

This year at Waggoner Road Middle School we have started an enrichment program for students called, "Genius Hour." In Genius Hour, students choose a "passion project" that they work on for the duration of the school year. The idea was formed from the search-engine giant, Google, as it allows its engineers to spend 20% of their to work on any pet project that they want. The idea is very simple: allow people to work on something that interests them and productivity will go up.
