JoBeth Gonzelez, Bowling Green High School drama advisor, recently released the second edition of her book "Temporary States II: Critically Oriented Drama Education," inspired by the transition to the new Performing Arts Center.
Gonzelez's accomplishment was just one of many mentioned during this month's Bowling Green Board of Education meeting.
Gonzalez also is currently serving as president of the American Alliance for Theater and Education, and her students in September participated in the 10th annual Human Trafficking Conference at the University of Toledo, performing an original scene on the topic that was written by students last year in the social issues theater class.
First-graders at Crim Elementary completed a used book drive to offer free books to the participants of this month's Project Homeless.
Also at Crim Gina Chambers, a retired Bowling Green teacher, has taken over the Breakfast Buddies program, which couples students from Conneaut and Crim with volunteer mentors from the community. Students and mentors meet once a week before school to read, play games and form positive relationships.
At Conneaut, kindergarten teachers Barbara Powell and Lisa Mayberry held a make-it-and-take-it night where parents made a variety of materials to help them with their child's learning.
At the high school, Dallas Black has started tutoring a group of guitar players, and students are maintaining a music notebook.
The high school Key Club has been active with volunteer hours and projects. Rachel Clark, club president, has lead having the BG mascot at Kenwood and Conneaut schools evening events, and club members have helped with football games and the Black Swamp Arts Festival.
Gloria Gajewics, high school science teacher, will take a team of students to compete today in the Falcon BEST Robotics Games competition at BGSU.
Also at the meeting, Kent Buehrer, of Buehrer Group, presented a plaque noting the Crim Elementary renovation project has met LEED certification requirements.
LEED - Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design - awards buildings points for satisfying specified green building criteria. The six major environmental categories of review include: Sustainable Sites, Water Efficiency, Energy and Atmosphere, Materials and Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality and Innovation and Design.
This is the district's second building to earn LEED certification. In 2010, Bowling Green Middle School and Performing Arts Center earning LEED Gold Certification.
The middle school will mark Veteran's Day on Nov. 8 with a program in the Performing Arts Center, starting at 1 p.m. Kenwood Elementary will hold its ceremony Nov. 11 at 2 p.m.
