Last week, our three High School Theatre groups teamed up for a great cause. Hilliard Bradley, Darby and Davidson theatre students participated in the International Thespian Society’s Trick or Treat So Kids Can Eat program. This program is a national community service project for student members to collect canned and dry goods for local charities. On the 29th, Thespian students from the three schools collected 1353 pounds of canned and dry goods for the Mid-Ohio Food Bank. Ready for Tomorrow means working together to give back to the community today.
Fourth grade students at Horizon have been reading graphic novels, such as Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and decided to share their stories with the entire grade. The students created tri-fold posters with character traits and story elements. To add an extra element of fun they created a drink to go along with their book. So if there was slime in the novel the student could create a green colored fun drink. Students and parents were invited in to learn about the novels and sample the drinks. Creating fun opportunities for students to push their learning to different levels helps prepare them to be Ready for Tomorrow.
Memorial Middle School 2-D art students are hosting their second annual haunted hallway on Friday, October 30th. Angie Leming’s 2-D students have been doing some incredible artwork to accompany the hallway and the Bradley Theater Actors will be coming to act as scary clowns and circus creatures. Assistant Principal Justin Ufferman said, “The bar was set high last year with the haunted hall creations…Kids have really done a great job meeting and excelling with this project. With the high school students who come back as actors, and PTO parents who help with logistics and set up, staff who help with the hall…WOW, the haunted hall has truly proven to be a project that reaches out to many different groups for a common goal! Great work to all!”

Hilliard Crossing Elementary students have the opportunity to discover what drives them on Wonder Wednesdays.

This year with the vision of kindergarten teachers Cindi Clifford and Tasia Sicker, Norwich is working to educate the whole child through the use of a “Discovery Room”. The Discovery Room provides materials to encourage creativity and collaboration while offering students voice and choice. Research shows when children play, they learn how to cooperate, when to lead and when to follow, how to solve problems, develop social and language skills, build physical ability, and so much more. The kindergarten and first grade students at Norwich are learning through play how to be ready for tomorrow!
