Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention to the present. This state encompasses observing one’s thoughts and feelings without judging them as good or bad. To live mindfully is to live in the moment and reawaken oneself to the present, rather than dwelling on the past or anticipating the future. Join us at Streetsboro Elementary Schools on January 28th, 6:30PM – 7:30PM to learn more.

SCS | Streetsboro board OKs middle school therapy dog

January 17, 2020By Streetsboro City Schools1 District News, 2 Middle School News

Last week, the Streetsboro Board of Education gave an unofficial nod to middle school counselor Monica Holzapfel to continue training her 11-month old black Labrador retriever Piper to be a therapy dog for students. Holzapfel wanted the board’s support so that she could apply for two grants for school-based therapy dog training.

TECH | Spotlight on Technology – Rocket Coffee Shop Rolls Hot Beverages to Teachers & Staff

December 10, 2019By Streetsboro City Schools1 District News, 1 High School News, 2 Middle School News, 3 Henry Defer Intermediate School News, 4 Elementary School News, 7 Technology News, Spotlight

On any given Thursday, students in Mrs. Milton’s class are rolling down the hallways with their mobile coffee cart. Each student is working on important vocational, social and functional living skills to increase their independence in a variety of ways. Mrs. Milton sought donations and grant funding to acquire a coffee maker and supplies to serve coffee, tea, and hot chocolate to staff members.

Milton knew she would collect coffee orders via a Google Form emailed to the staff, but didn’t know how she would convert those orders into an order that the students could follow. She reached out to building tech aide Molly Klodor for advice. Klodor recommended using the Google Form, a Google Sheet, a Google Slide template, and an Add-On called Autocrat to collect the data, sort each order into one panel, then print those panels onto a label. The finished project looks much like the order sticker you might find on your Starbucks cup!

Milton’s students make each custom order and deliver the coffee to teachers on Thursday mornings. Students also collect the money from the staff members and keep track of loyalty cards, which could earn someone a free coffee. Milton’s students then count the money and deposit it, in addition to paying attention to what supplies need to be reordered. Through this venture, Milton’s students are preparing for work outside of their experience at Streetsboro High School.
