Summit Learning
CONTENT ASSESSMENTS: How do I support my student if he/she is off track?
 
If your student is off-track for Content Assessments in a course:
Ask your child to show you how and where they take notes to prepare for their Content Assessments. Students should work on note-taking and practice for Content Assessments outside of school. Ask the student if they have taken notes on every Power Focus Area Objective.

Ask them if they took the Diagnostic Exam for the Power Focus Area. If yes, ask them which objectives they need to refocus on and study more before taking the Content Assessment again.

Check if there are any Content Assessments your child has attempted but not passed in the Year section on the platform. If your student is attempting Content Assessments, but not passing them, encourage them to strategy shift and reflect on what study techniques work well for them.

Ask your student if they have used all resources to help them pass this Power Focus Area?

Ask your student if they have a friend who has passed it and can help?
They also may want to reach out to their teacher for additional support.
A Message from OhioGuidestone

This fall, as thousands of students and teachers are back in school, the OhioGuidestone is pleased to join with the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS) to promote the ABCs of Mental Health, a new resource for those who may be feeling the weight of new rules and regulations and heightened health and safety concerns.

Under the leadership of Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, OhioMHAS has ramped up state efforts to increase access to mental health and addiction services and promote helpful resources throughout the pandemic and is approaching the issue of social isolation from multiple angles. Earlier this year, the department established the COVID Careline – 1.800.720.9616 – to help meet the needs of Ohioans struggling with loneliness, isolation and other challenges resulting from the pandemic. OhioMHAS also launched the Strive For Five Challenge, a statewide awareness campaign to help individuals and families cope with feelings of stress, anxiety, and isolation by connecting with others. 

OhioMHAS and its county partners continue to promote a variety of resources to help young people through these challenging times as well. The Hey I’m Here campaign is a youth-led online community that provides a safe digital space for young people to share their stories, offer encouragement to one-another, and help peers find mental health resources. Meanwhile, the Be Present Ohio website offers resources for teens and young adults to learn how they can care for their mental health in stressful times, and it provides them with tips for talking to close friends, siblings and classmates who may be struggling emotionally. 
 
If you, or someone you know is struggling and in need of help or immediate crisis services, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1.800.273.8255, or reach out through the Ohio Crisis Text Line by texting the keyword 4HOPE to 741 741.  
 
OhioGuidestone is available to provide support to educators as well as students.

Family and Community Engagement (FACE)
Hello Fairview Park MS/HS Families!

I hope that the second week of transition from remote to hybrid has gone smoothly for all! Our teachers and staff are working so hard for our FP families -- they are awesome!

Hopefully everyone remembers that in the 19-20 and 20-21 school year, each school district in the state received funding for Student Wellness and Success.

Two partnerships that are now set up and running:
Doug Winston Consulting and Counseling - Doug is in our district every Thursday to meet with individual students in person or virtually.

Guidestone Groups - OhioGuidestone is already in our district to see individual students, and our school counselors are partnering with them to provide groups for our students 6-12. Various topics from our framework of promoting social, emotional and academic success include:

  • Self-Awareness; Self-Management; Social-Awareness; Relationship Skills; Goal-Directed Behavior; Personal Responsibility; Decision-Making; and Optimistic Thinking

These groups will be facilitated by a combination of our FPCSD Licensed Professional School Counselors, Mary Cory and Jen Parente, along with Licensed Social Worker Sarah Pawlaczyk and/or Case Manager, Gabby Little. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school counseling office @440-356-3500 x 4147 or OhioGuidestone School Services Assistant Director, Mindy Kaminski @ 216-470-0460.  

How can your child get involved?
*If you are interested in your child participating in a group or being seen individually (either in person or virtually), please contact their school counselor. 

*A school counselor may contact you to recommend them for one of these activities.

*If you want to Opt-Out of these services - please contact their school counselor, Mrs. Cory (grades 6-9) or Ms. Parente (grades 10-12).

We look forward to supporting your child’s successful transition/return to the FPCSD with this unique opportunity!
