Pride Period: Academic Assistance Available for Students

 

Tutoring – Are you having difficulty writing that paragraph for Language Arts? Still have questions about last night’s math homework? Do you need a hand getting organized for the day?

Pride Period is your answer to those questions and more.

Every Tuesday through Friday, from 7:40 to 8:00 AM there are teachers waiting to help you with Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies or organization. In the mornings you can get a pass from teachers with Hall Duty to go back to the academic wings for help. You can also ask your teacher for a pass the day before you go to get help. For the afternoon, the process is the same … all you need is a pass to drop in and get assistance from a content teacher.

Pride Period, where teachers are here to help!

They also got strong all around games from Peter P., Tasos C. and Will J..  Then last night, the Jags beat Delaware 51-27.  It was a solid team effort led by strong efforts from Luke S. and Tommy O..

Mrs. McD’s pick of the week this week is: Not as we know it

What would you do if you found a mysterious sea creature washed up on the shore:  smooth flesh on one end, scales at the other, skinny arms and legs ending in long webbed fingers and toes?  That is just what Jamie and his brother find one day.  They hide him in a tub in the garage. But what Jamie really hopes is that the creature will be able to somehow save his brother, who is getting sicker every day.  If you like sad stories with a touch of fantasy this one is for you.  Check it out at the library today!

If you see Muheeb H. in the hall give him a shout out....CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! Why, you ask? Muheeb was awarded the 2017 Fouse Award during a breakfast celebrating  him and other recipients.  This celebration was held to honor the memory and dreams of Martin Luther King  that one day all men (and women) will live in harmony and peace. Muheeb is an influential, positive peer leader here at Genoa.  He is always asking....HOW CAN I HELP? He has helped in a BIG way with several drives for the homeless and needy.....he made sure we reached goals of 150 blankets for the VanBurean Shelter and 2000 pairs of socks for the homeless in Columbus.

Tomorrow there are 7th and 8th grade boys basketball home games. 7th grade game starts at 5:30 with the 8th grade game following. It's a white out this game as we take on the bulldogs of Blendon middle school. Do you want notifications and information about themes of games, spirit week and other school spirit activities?
