Students in the Career Mentorship Program interested in engineering, math and science, were introduced to local manufacturing industries in Hilliard. OhioSemitronics and Pharmaforce opened their doors to introduce our students to manufacturing. The students learned about the work they do for the military and were surprised to learn of the companies around the nation that depend on OhioSemitronics for specialized products, including Disney World.

More than 200 Darby High School students signed up for elective Physical Education classes this year. Teacher and Head Baseball Coach Chris Fugitt says, ” this is important because we are teaching students skills they can take and use in the rest of their lives.” There are two different options, strength and conditioning and the buds class. The buds class uses military fitness concepts to get students into better physical shape. Hilliard City Schools believes in teaching the whole child. Empowering students to be responsible for their own health and wellness prepares them to be Ready for Tomorrow.

About sixty eighth grade advanced art students from Memorial Middle School visited Bradley High School. The Memorial students attended high school painting, ceramics and photography classes. They were able to see the caliber of work the high school students produce at various stages of progress. High school students were eager to teach the middle school students about art making and the students were allowed time to perform a quick application of media in each class. The field trip ended with a presentation of high school art course offerings, a presentation of the art department’s newly launched website and a question and answer session. This opportunity will give the Memorial students more information when they schedule high school classes. This type of collaboration between the two schools is what prepares our students to be Ready for Tomorrow.
During this week designed to place our collective focus on giving thanks, there is one idea I’d be grateful for the opportunity to explore with you – the idea of Home.
The very word conjures up so many images and emotions within us.
Our Home is our safe place. It is where we laugh so hard we cry, cry so hard we laugh, and allow our dreams to become our reality. Too many times, we get lost from Home. Simply turn on the TV, open the paper, or listen to the radio and you will understand what I mean. We operate in a fast-paced, ever-changing world that can leave one unsure of which direction to go.
Slow down. Read More
