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!

Team Genoa Golf including Cory Bl. ,Alex H. ,Mwangi "tiger" K. ,

Heath J. , Anna B. and Grant H. played a dual match with Worthington last night at Shamrock Golf and Country Club.

The Jaguars lost by 10 strokes but the team overall showed improvement over the past 2 matches. Top scores were carded by Cory B. and Alex H .

 

Last evening the Genoa 8th grade Football Team led a comeback that was heard across county lines. The Jaguars got off to a bit of a rocky start after recovering a fumble and stoping the lions on the 1 yard line which then led to a lions fumble recover for the first TD of the game. The Jags, like Katy Perry, roared back to score on a Victor P. touchdown and a nice two point finish to take the lead 8-6. The Lions would go on to score at the end of the half and on their 2nd drive of the third quarter to go up 20-8. The Jags did not quit. They kept their composure and knew the fourth quarter was there's to win. The blue defense was catching fire led by James D., CJ R., Liam E., Nick F. and the linebacking core who all pitched in to cause back to back fumble recoveries which led to two touchdowns by Victor P. giving him the honor of wearing the  number 12 jersey for next game. Also making big plays were Cameron H., Jacob E., Cameron P., Tyler C., Simon B., Cameron T., Brian S. and every single player on the  Jaguar team who was at conditioning through the entire summer. The team would also like to thank the cheerleaders for their awesome effort and never giving up on the team cheering until the end. The Jags next game is to be determined next week against New Albany. Come out and support your Jags this year, you won't be disappointed.

The 7th grade girls had their second win of the season last night over Worthington McCord. The ladies busted out a 2 set win and they looked great. If you see a 7th grade volleyball player, tell her she's awesome. The 8th grade volleyball players also had a terrific win over McCord last night in 2 sets. The girls played really well and they made their coach and their families very proud. Give an 8th grade volleyball player a high five for a job well done.Way to go jags!!

 

The 7th-grade Football Team lost a close one to Gahanna South 6-0 last night.  Defensively, the Jags were led by Steven "Flashcards" T.with two tackles for loss, and numerous annoying questions, Jace "The Face" J., who caused 2 turnovers, had 7 tackles all with fabulous looking hair.  DJ "The Real Deal" J. locked down his man at corner and still had time to flirt with the Gahanna cheerleaders.

Offensively, our best play occurred when we blocked our own punt..I think that's all you need to know.

 

Reminder that Friday is recycling pick-up day. Teachers, please set all of your recycling outside your doors.

The following is a message from Khan Academy founder Sal Khan: Some people believe that intellectual ability is purely genetic or fixed. This is a myth. Research now shows that your brain is like a muscle; the more you apply it and struggle, the more it grows. People who learn to recognize this fact about their own brain develop a ‘growth mindset’ and are able to persevere and achieve more.
