West G SRO prepares for school year

West Geauga School Resource Officer Mark Rich just returned from additional training to help him and the staff prepare for the upcoming school year.

“The training I attended was for the OSROA (Ohio School Resource Officer Association). It was a three day training that covered vaping, electronic cigarettes, the digital lives of students, drug awareness, Ohio trends and emerging threats,” Mr. Rich said. “In addition, the training covered a school resource officer’s role in addressing mental health disorders.”

This training will help Mr. Rich and the staff better serve the West G students at all levels.

Marching band trip to Disney

The West Geauga marching band will be enjoying travel this year. In addition to a trip to The Ohio State University to participate in Skull Sessions, the band will travel to Florida this fall.

“The West Geauga marching band will perform at the Magic Kingdom, and the Wolverettes are participating in a dance clinic,” Band Director Jason Branch said. “The band is participating in a performance clinic/recording studio activity in November.”

The travel and training helps the musicians develop their skills and prepare for more advanced performances.
