At Weaver, we expect students to treat each other with dignity and respect. It is also important to recognize that we need to educate, respond and promote an anti-bully message with our students, staff and parents. Please view our anti-bullying message and help us as we work to put an end to bullying. We will host activities throughout the year as we kick-off our campaign this month. Activities will include: a PSA video contest, weekly kindness tasks, anti-bully videos and school spirit days. Information about the video contest can be found here.
No experience is needed – this is a great time to learn to ski or snowboard. The Weaver Ski & Board Club will again be in full force this winter season at Mad River Mountain! The informational meeting will be on the evening of October 20, 2015 at 7:00 PM in the Weaver Commons. This meeting is open to students and parents and information about Ski & Board Club will be available at that time. Please plan on attending! Questions? See Mr. Banyots, Ms. Roholt or Mr. Farrell.
We will be hosting a free parent workshop to discuss sexting and bullying. The Hilliard Police Department will be on hand to define these topics from a legal perspective and talk about the real life consequences students can face. This will take place November 5th at Darby High School from 6:30 pm till 8:00 pm. We will also work with Clinicians from Syntero to talk about the emotional impact this takes on our students. This will be an interactive night going over real life scenariors. Please come ready to ask questions and join in the discussion.

Our school district is working very hard to better understand youth health risk and protective behaviors in the community and across Ohio. As part of this effort, we are asking students in grade 7 to participate in an anonymous survey called the Ohio Healthy Youth Environments Survey — OHYES! The OHYES! is a collaborative effort by the Ohio Departments of Education, Health, and Mental Health and Addiction Services and numerous other programs advocating for youth. Our school has decided to participate in this important effort on Tuesday, October 13th.
Please click here for full details about this survey in a letter from Principal Vroom, as well as an “opt out” form should you choose for your student to not participate in the survey. Please note that opt out forms must be submitted no later than Friday, October 9.
