Dr. Falkenstein’s Principal Report for North Baltimore MS/HS
September 25, 2018
- North Central Ohio ESC: We were contacted and provided some help to area schools about our online options and using the PEAK curriculum. Mathias was particularly helpful in discussing the intricacies of offering online credit. Seneca County schools really appreciated us sharing with them since our online school has been operating for several years.
- “Five Minutes for Life” centers on Ohio State Troopers, Ohio National Guard members and local law enforcement talking for five minutes with students before or after a practice or a meeting, about responsible decision-making, leadership and encouraging those in their peer group to live a drug-free lifestyle. This educational campaign aims to reduce and ultimately eliminate drug use among students. Ohio State Highway Patrol Sergeant Ryan Purpura will be joining us this Thursday and Friday since School Resource Officer Mandy Slane put together meetings with our band and football team.
- Recycling: Our first Ball recycling pick up is October 19. We’re working on a permanent location for drop-offs. One issue is keeping it from turning into a trash area. Look for future announcements to drop off aluminum cans at the middle/high school prior to October 19.
- Homecoming Week is approaching! By order of NBFD, we cannot have a bonfire anymore. We do not have the necessary 1000’ zone around the fire, and they cannot risk the liability. We will still have the Powderpuff, Spirit competition, and this year…extra water for the senior mudslide!
- I am still involved in the OASSA Legislative Committee this year and am working to stay informed and help change policy at the state level.
- Our staff and students are working so hard this year, just as they did last year. I am proud of them and thankful to be included as a NB Tiger!
No Powell report. (Donuts for Dads is Tomorrow, September 28th)
