Euclid Book Fair Volunteers



7th Grade Party!!!

Let's throw a GLOW party for our 7th graders!!! We will need volunteers to help set up and decorate before the party. We will also need volunteers to work the food and drink tables and run the activities. We will have a DJ, food and activities (hopefully to include a mini type of Escape Room Challenge) for the kids.  It will take about 10 minutes after the close of the party to clean up the areas we are responsible for. 





NEW SCREENING DATE!

Screenagers: Growing Up in the Digital Age

When: October 25th!

at Euclid Middle School!

Gym Doors Open at 6:30 pm

Program Starts: 7pm

Do you and your child argue about screen time? Does your child spend a lot of time and data on Snap Chat? Does your student disappear for hours playing Xbox? Students, do your parents harp on you about social media? Do you wish your parents understood why certain apps are so important to you? Are you curious how to find a healthy balance while living in this digital age?  We have the event for you! Euclid PTO and administration would like to present Screenagers to you! 

Screenagers is a documentary designed to spark a conversation between adults, students, and schools about navigating the benefits and challenges of increasing technology in our lives. 

Screenagers is only available via exclusive screenings.  This event will include a viewing of the full feature film and an action kit to take home to encourage ongoing family conversation.

This screening is open to all Euclid Middle School students and their families (this includes other age appropriate children in your family), but has limited seating. We will also be advertising this event across the district to age appropriate audiences.  This event is most beneficial if both parents and students attend TOGETHER. The content is mature and is recommended for students in the 5th grade through 12th grade. Video game violence (visuals) and sexting (discussions) are topics included in this film. We highly recommend you only bring age appropriate children to this event. 

No registration required! Seating is first come first serve. There is no cost to attend thanks to generous support from the LPS Foundation.

Euclid Media Center Renovation Direct Donation Drive 2016 reached the goal!


I am so impressed with and thankful for our school community! Thank you to Students, Parents, Teachers, Staff, Administration, Friends and Family of Euclid! We had a HUGE goal and we rallied together to reach it! We raised $19,000 for our 2017/18 Budget and $12,750 to add to the $30,000 we already had in reserve for the Media Center Renovation!  The new media center includes multi-use table and lounge configurations, monitors to hook the Chromebooks to for group and individual work. Below are links to a 2D and a 3D pdf draft of the project. 


 
 

21st Century Media Center Renovation 

WHY Do We Need a 21st Century Media Center?!

The New Space will allow teachers to utilize the Media Center to enhance this generation’s learning style and skills. Teachers can use this space to encourage group collaboration. Students are able to work together to problem solve, be creative, communicate and think critically with on another.

The Consensus of Educators and Experts in the field believe that students need transparency-level skills in these areas*:
 

· Problem Solving- Students need the ability to solve complex problems in real time.
· Creativity- Students need to be able to think and work creatively in both digital and non-digital environments to develop unique and useful solutions.
· Analytic Thinking- Students need the ability to think analytically, which includes proficiency with comparing, contrasting, evaluating, synthesizing, and applying without instruction or supervision.
· Collaboration-  Students must possess the ability to collaborate seamlessly in both physical and virtual spaces, with real and virtual partners globally.
· Communication- Students must be able to communicate not just with text or speech, but in multiple multimedia formats. They must be able to communicate visually through video and imagery as effectively as they do with text and speech.
