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!

The Genoa 7th Grade Lady Jaguars rule the "Ville". Due to field conditions and the time it took to get the field ready after a down pour, the first game of the Westerville Middle School Tournament had a time limit of 1 hour and 15 minutes. After 3 and 1/2 innings, the number one seeded Jags defeated Blendon 7-2. Rachel F. struck out 8 and did not allow a hit but gave up 6 walks allowing 2 runs. Playing her first game for The Jags, Madison L. drew 3 walks and scored 2 runs. Abby R. led the hit parade with 2 hits including a sharp double to drive in the first run. Rachel F., Miranda B., Riley K. and Steph C. also had hits. Kali D. and Maeve M. reached base safely and each scored a run.

The second game was played against Walnut Springs after they defeated Heritage. In the bottom of the first the Lady Jags jumped out to a 5-0 lead and led the game 7-4 when the game had to be stopped due to rain after 3 innings. Leading the hitters were Abby R., Miranda B. and Steph C.. Abbt R. and Stephanie C. both had a triple and a single. Miranda B. had a single and a double. D'nisa O. and Kali D. had their first hits of the tourney and Maeve M. drew 2 walks. Rachael F. struck out 5 and walked 3 and gave up only 2 hits. High marks are to be given to Riley K. who did a fantastic job in catching her first 2 games of the year. Maeve M. also played excellent at first base for the first time. Due to the absence of three regulars for the tournament, Madison L. was instrumental in filling in and completing a full line-up for a Genoa Nine. With the 2 wins in the tournament, the Lady Jags increased the season record to 12 and 2.

The 7 th Grade Lady Jaguars are to be congratulated  on an excellent , fun filled and fantastic season !

 

On 5/9 2015, the Regional Invention Convention took place at Columbus State Community College. 2 Jaguars advanced to this level of competition. Awards were handed out from 1st to 8th grade. The recipients earned 1st, 2nd and 3rd place ribbons, honorary certificates and monetary scholarships. Malia W. earned 1st place all around for 8th graders in our region. Her invention was a better headband called the "Gripper". Besides staying in hair better, they also have interchangeable covers to slip on and off to match your outfit or uniform. For this invention, Malia took home the 1st place ribbon, honorary certificate, the invention convention first place trophy for Superior invention AND a $500 scholarship to the college of her choice!

Her invention is soon to be on sale this summer for you to add to your wardrobe.

CONGRATULATIONS MALIA!!!
