Kiwanis recognizes students

The West Geauga Kiwanis Club honors students of the month selected by Principal Jay Bishop and the high school staff. Traditionally, students would go to a club meeting to receive this honor; however, this year, Mr. Bishop delivered the awards to each student at West Geauga High School. The Students of the Month are Raenna Cenni, Alex Lavin, Kenneth Kirk, David Allen, Emily Cobb and Gabby Ramirez. Each student received a certificate and a $50 gift card reward. Students are encouraged to use this honor on resumes and to consider applying for the Kiwanis Club Scholarship to further their education after high school.

Lindsey connects with reading

Students in third grade at Lindsey Elementary School read “A Boy Called Bat,” a book by Elana K. Arnold. The book’s main character has autism, and through the story, students learned more about empathy and connected with the character.

Teachers Tara Mulica and Debbie Lachman’s English and language arts classes wrote persuasive essays asking to have the books added to the Lindsey collection, and because of their effort, Principal Principal Meagan Bellan surprised the students by buying the second and third book of the series to have available for interested readers. The books were purchased using a West Geauga Educational Foundation grant, Books Matter.
