Warrior Pride
FROM RICH FRIEL
Students are presenting their Mental Illness power points in Health this week.
 
The students set up the 75 Gallon Tank in the office last Friday on their day off. Mr. Vicha supplied some starter tetras for the tank while the rest of the fish will be coming soon from Aquatica in Valley City. We still have to wait in order to make sure the water chemicals are functioning properly. The students in the Freshwater Aquarium Group will have a care schedule once all the fish are in the tank. Thanks to Mr. Kaminski for our back picture of the tank, Mr. Vicha for the purchase of our Tank and Stand system, Tom for his expertise in leveling our tank and setting up our electrical and water supply to fill the tank along with Aquatica Fish Store in Valley City for the donations of stone, filtration system, heater, decorations, and eventually the rest of our fish. Below is the group of kids that donated their day off to set up the tank.

Summer Institute (SI) is OSC's unique and intense two-week residential summer program for high school students entering their sophomore, junior or senior year. Participants experience the dynamic world of high performance computing as they work alongside peers and experts in the field to research complex, real-world science and engineering challenges using computational science.
 
Young Women's Summer Institute (YWSI) is a weeklong program for Ohio's middle school girls to gain valuable computer, math, science and engineering skills through hands-on, collaborative projects. YWSI girls develop a deeper interest in STEM as the use the latest computer technology to solve complex, real-world science and engineering challenges with a team of peers.

FROM ANDY BRUENING
The 9th grade biology classes had many quality individual student presentations with many students overcoming their own fears of presenting and doing wonderful jobs! Mia B. could not find enough quality resources on the evolution of hamsters in English but she did find it in Mandarin Chinese. So being the go getter and tech whiz that she is, she ran it through Google Translate and got some very good information to help her with a very good project!

Student Leaders Plan "Find Your Balance" Workshops at the Middle and High Schools
High school students are planning a day of special activities with the theme "Find Your Balance: How to Cope Workshops" on Monday, April 1 for their fellow students in grades 6-12. Nine Juniors in the Educational Service Center of Northeast Ohio's First Ring Student Leadership Academy are coordinating the event as a part of their project on mental health, specifically learning to deal with daily stressors such as school, activities, sports, family, friends, and relationships.

Students will have the opportunity to participate in four 25-minute sessions throughout the day. Topics include mindfulness and meditation, outdoor walking, art and drawing to relax, journaling, therapy dogs, board games, healthy eating, yoga, journaling, and more.
Teachers and staff will lead the sessions.

A special presentation from Jessie Funk, a nationally-recognized motivational speaker, author, and musical artist will present to the students during the day. Then that evening, she will headline an event at Gilles-Sweet Elementary at 6:30 p.m. This event is geared towards both parents and students.
