Keeping School Buildings Safe

No comments:
by David Torrence, High School Assistant Principal at Greenville City Schools

The most recent school attack has intensified the sense of unease in our country. There are, sad to say, no easy answers for the questions this latest attack has generated. Well-intended people argue passionately - and at times angrily - about why attacks at schools continue to happen and how to prevent future attacks. Government officials, parents and students, and special interest groups argue about the best ways to prevent attacks on schools. Social and professional media people say that attacks on schools are “inevitable” and demand that “something” be done - and be done NOW. What that “something” is or could be, however, seems to elude everyone. The absence of a clear and easily implemented policy creates a sense of despair shared by students, parents, teachers, and even law enforcement personnel.

While there is no “quick fix” that will protect every student in every school, there are steps that parents, students, and teachers can take to make their student’s building safer. Some of them are obvious – we create emergency plans, and we talk about and practice these plans. We create protocols in conjunction with local authorities; we review and update those plans as frequently as we can. We make as sure as we can that students and teachers understand what to do should there be an emergency.

One thing that students, teachers, and parents can remember to support the rules and procedures that schools already have in place. Every rule we have in our student handbook is there primarily to make the building as safe as possible. For instance, we prohibit allowing students to bring book bags into classrooms; this prevents a student from bringing harmful items into that classroom. Some rules seem to promote student safety less obviously; for instance, our student dress code helps draw attention to individuals who, because they are not dressed in accordance with our policy, might possibly be intruders. Similarly, our procedure for students leaving the building during the school day is part of our bigger plan to make sure that a student on our campus has neither been taken from our campus, run away, or has left to cause harm somewhere else. These rules, when followed, allow the building staff to do the best we can to make sure students are safe when they are in our building. While the rules seem, at times, cumbersome or inconvenient, in the end they help us keep the people in our buildings as safe as possible.

Library Program on Monarchs

No comments:

One of the most widely recognized butterflies in the United States is also the one in the most danger of becoming extinct. Habitat loss, illegal logging, row crop agriculture and over use of pesticides are just a few factors that have led to the staggering population decrease. What can we do to reverse the damage?

Join Darke County Parks Naturalist Mandy Martin Wednesday March 28th at 6:00 at the Greenville Public Libary to find out! This is a free, family-friendly event but seating is limited so first come first served. Light refreshments provided. Mandy says “We’ll explore the natural history of this magnificent creature and discover all the efforts nationwide to spearhead movements to save this iconic species.” Mandy will also share what Darke County Parks has done to join the effort to save the monarch and how you can get involved.”

After the presentation we will be making seed bombs! “These little balls of seed, clay, and compost are pre-planted with butterfly approved wildflower seeds. This spring just toss them on the ground, press them lightly into the ground, and watch them grow.”

Did you know that since 2006 the Library has also been certified as an official Monarch Waystation by “Monarch Watch” of the University of Kansas? This program was organized in 2005 by Chip Taylor, whose goal it is to have thousands of these “resource patches” created in back yards, school and church grounds, parks, nature centers, golf courses, and retirement homes.

According to, a Waystation is an intermediate station between principle stations on a line of travel. The principle stations for monarchs are the sites in Mexico they use for overwintering and the northern sites they use for reproduction in the breeding season. Without nectar flowers, fall migratory butterflies would be unable to make the journey to Mexico.

What distinguishes a Monarch Waystation from an ordinary butterfly garden is the inclusion of and emphasis on milkweed. The plant is essential because milkweeds are the only plants that monarch caterpillars recognize as food. MonarchWatch recommends that Waystations include at least 10 milkweed plants.

The Parent Teacher Partnership is Evolving - by Rhonda Schaar, Greenville Middle School Principal

No comments:
We are pleased to announce the GMS Parent Teacher Partnership Group has chosen to continue the valuable work of opening the lines of communication, ensuring equity and increased involvement with parents and teachers that began three years ago. The meetings have focused on Greenville Middle School but hope to expand the conversations and improvements to all grades if possible. On March 7th the core group met and reviewed the topics and sessions from the last three years and developed a plan of action to reach out to the elementary and high school.

The Parent Teacher Partnership is an initiative to increase communication with parents and teachers beyond the typical PTA or Booster Club experience. Greenville City Schools was awarded a Staff Personnel Development Grant from the Ohio Department of Education in 2013. An opportunity offered as a part of this grant included sending a team to be trained in the work of Dr. Barbara Boone on improving the relationships between parents and teachers. Research shows these positive relationships lead to improved student growth and achievement. ( Teachers Zach Roll and Chad Curtis (who also has children in GCS) with parent Tammy Abell were trained to facilitate the Parent Teacher Partnership collaboration.

Throughout 2015-2017, the group met in six sessions. The topics covered included; respect and communication, equity and decision-making, competence, parenting and learning at home, advocacy, commitment and volunteering. There were a variety of parents representing the diverse population of the school as well as multiple teachers from grades 5-8 participating in the discussions and activities. As the group focused on the different topics they applied their learning into actions. Parents stated their concerns about parent teacher conferences, a need to increase communication using 21st Century tools and poor experiences as visitors to the school. These were addressed by the school and improvements were made in each area that has impacted GMS in a positive way. Additional conversations have continued outside the confines of the formal meeting as PTP members shared and engaged other staff and community members on the topics started within the PTP.

At the meeting on March 7th the participants included some who were at all six sessions as well as some new faces. Regardless of the number of meetings attended, all agreed the opportunities provided by this organized body need to continue and be open to those interested in grades K-12. It was decided to continue as an independent entity as the initial State Personnel Development Grant has ended. To ensure the integrity of the work over the last few years the PTP has decided to create conditions of participation before requesting additional members to join. This is the foundation of a “model for an opportunity for honest and open, two-way communication towards school improvement and family well-being” ( ) as envisioned by Dr. Barbara Boone and the Ohio Department of Education CETE Results Management team to ensure parents and teachers are working together to meet the unique needs of each school and district.

Greenville Middle School’s Parent Teacher Partnership is evolving as a group of invested parents and teachers (with a couple administrators thrown in) to improve the learning environment for the children of Greenville City Schools.

The Ohio DD Council is one of a national network of state councils, committed to self-determination and community inclusion for people with developmental disabilities. With the mission of creating change that improves independence, productivity and inclusion for people with developmental disabilities and their families in community life, the council members use their positions to advocate, initiate, demonstrate and educate society in order to improve Ohio’s capacity for delivering services to people with developmental disabilities.

Operating under the authority of the federal Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights Act of 2000, the council is comprised of approximately 31 members, 60 percent of who represent people with disabilities, and parents and guardians of people with developmental disabilities. Focusing on areas of interest including Assistive Technology, Children and Health, Community Living, Employment, Leadership, Outreach and Public Policy, each member must agree to serve on at least two subcommittees.

Although this is a huge endeavor that requires at least a 3 year term commitment, Mr. Matt Harrison is no stranger to donating his time for good cause. He has participated on the Darke County Advocacy in Action committee, the Darke County Aktion Club, and was an Ohio Leader through Project STIR (Steps Toward Independence and Responsibility). Also an avid donor with the American Red Cross, Matt is always open to giving back to his community.

Since 1987, March has been designated as National Developmental Disabilities Awareness month. This month is used to highlight the contributions and needs of the estimated 4 million Americans living with a developmental disability.

Upcoming Little Black Dress Event to Support Women Scholarships

“I would encourage all women to mark their calendars for April 18th,” said Sharon Semanie, Little Black Dress Committee Member. “Last year’s inaugural event was absolutely the best time and left all of us in a celebratory mood wanting more girls’ nights out.”

“In addition to the camaraderie and opportunity to visit with other women of all ages, the event more importantly helped raise some serious funds to provide women with educational scholarships.”

Now in its second year, the event returns following a successful inaugural event in 2017, which raised over $8,000 to support scholarships for women at Edison State.

“Assisting women in making possible one of the most important decisions of their lives is indeed a privilege,” said Maura Felts, Little Black Dress Committee Member. “To be able to help other women reach their full potential and celebrate one another is as good as it gets!”

For $50, the evening’s guests will enjoy a social hour with music from 6:30-7:15 p.m., which includes hors d’oeuvres and choice of wine, lemonade, coffee, or water. Beer will be available for purchase. From 7:15-8:30 p.m. those in attendance will be served a 3-course meal by local celebrity men.

Empowering to hold first volunteer meeting

No comments:
GREENVILLE – Empowering Darke County Youth will be holding a volunteer organizational meeting at Tribute Funeral Homes Greenville, 1000 N. Broadway, Thursday, March 22 at 7 p.m.

“Our kids are the future of our community,” said Melissa Eve, Assistant Program Coordinator. “If you agree, then come help us. We have a job for you!”

She added Empowering Darke County Youth needs volunteer tutors, but acknowledges not everyone is comfortable in that role. The program also needs people willing to help plan and conduct fundraising events, recruit volunteers and spread the word through social media and personal contacts.

“I believe we’ve had a huge impact on our community,” said Empowering President Eric Fee. “We’ve made some great strides working with kids who need help, through our Edison State and adult volunteers, but the need is still greater than our ability to meet it.

“We’ve just started,” he continued, “but we can’t do it alone. We need your help.”

“Stop in, join us for a light snack, and find out what you can do to help,” said Bob Robinson, Program Coordinator. “We had to start a waiting list for our After School Program last fall and it still exists today…

“Help us make sure no child has to wait for help in the future. See you at the meeting… and thanks!”

The Empowering Mission: Empowering Darke County Youth is a United Way Partner Agency providing After School and Summer Tutoring programs to assist students in the areas of language arts and math with the goal of Strong Students for a Strong Community.
