- Edudemic, an education technology website, put together a list of 25 education blogs for parents with topics ranging from how to increase learning outside of school to preparing for the college application process: edudemic.com/2012/08/25-education-bogs-perfect-for-parents-and-just-about-anyone-else.
- Penn State University recently did a study about parent/teen relationships and found that teens want more interaction with their parents. During this period in their lives, teens often resist parental assistance and crave for their independence. This is just a part of the developmental stages of life. However, they not only need parental interaction, they actually want it: http://live.psu.edu/story/60790.
- Did you know failure (making mistakes, trying again) is a natural part of the learning process? As painful as it may be at times, it's important for us to allow ourselves to make mistakes and even more important to let our students make mistakes. The following article lists three ways parents can let their child make mistakes: huff.to/R5Ow5S.
- There are many methods of communication these days and it's extremely hard for us to keep up. However, more and more students have turned to social media, such as texting, tweeting, and posting on Facebook to interact with their friends and express themselves. It's important for us all to help them develop a positive digital footprint. This requires us to monitor their interactions. Following is a neat blog post by a member of my Professional Learning Network about knowing what your kids are tweeting and texting: http://www.principalspage.com/theblog/archives/do-you-know-what-your-kids-are-tweeting-and-texting.

As the month of November approaches, I would be remiss if I didn’t tell you how thankful I am for being able to serve as the principal of GLHS. I thoroughly enjoy the many opportunities to interact with you, our students, and the staff in significant ways. Until next time…

Thursday, April 26th at 7:00, GLHS students will participate in the 4th annual Poetry Slam, sponsored by Writers’ Club. Poets will compete for five prizes, ranging from $25 to $100 Easton gift cards. In celebration of National Poetry Month, the Slam honors the art of poetry. Music during intermission will be provided by junior Meredith Brown. Refreshments will be in the lobby during the judging. Poetry is a positive outlet for students to voice their feelings. Currently, there are 15 entries. You are more than welcome to attend! I would like to thank English teacher and Writer's Club Advisor, Mrs. Dona Montgomery for organizing this outstanding event. It's clubs like this that help us create an environment where students can feel connected to the school.

We believe in the power of community partnerships as a way to provide relevant learning opportunities for our students. One way in which we do that is the Gahanna Lincoln High School Health Fair. I've asked Health teacher, Mrs. Linda Shannon to share more information about it:
The students work extremely hard and are well prepared to provide meaningful information to guests who stop by their booth. Thanks to Mrs. Shannon and the students who are in the Health Issues class for hosting such an important event! Be sure to ask your student about it sometime this week. Hopefully they will have a chance to attend.
