HOLIDAY GREETINGS

At this time of the year, as we prepare for the Holidays I wanted to thank all the neighborhood groups, organizations, clubs and individuals who have worked on behalf of the community this past year. It goes without saying that the community is only as good as the people and organizations in it. As we approach 2019, it is more important than ever before to get involved in our community or the clubs that encompasses your street. 

We all know that there have been major changes in our local development corporations this past year.  We are moving forward, though, and doing our best to overcome bad decisions that were made by former Executive Staff members. Justice will be served on those individuals who took advantage of our neighborhood support and trust. Regardless of the actions of these individuals, our community is resilient and we must collectively refuse to allow their actions to define our community.  Again, I urge, anyone who would like to become a stakeholder in our community and to get involved, to contact the Greater Collinwood Development Corporation, which now encompasses our entire Ward and part of Ward 10.  They may be reached at (216) 383-9772.

Cleveland Monsters donate STEM curriculum to Hannah Gibbons

Ryan Collins of the Cleveland Monsters demonstrates a hockey-related STEM activity for students at Hannah Gibbons School. 

Three Cleveland Monsters players visited Hannah Gibbons School on Nov. 20 – to help give students a lesson in STEM education.

The Monsters are providing a STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) curriculum that will be used by second-graders at Hannah Gibbons, George Washington Carver, Michael R. White, Mound and Orchard schools.

The Great Lakes Science Center designed the curriculum for the Monsters.

Lessons use elements of hockey to teach concepts like force, motion and friction, while also working in math, literacy and physical education, all based on state standards. Students will work in small groups, sharpening their communication and teamwork skills.

“The best part is it all relates to hockey,” Karyn Torigoe, STEM learning products manager at the museum, said during the announcement at Hannah Gibbons. “It introduces them to hockey.”

Inquiry-Based Learning at Oliver H. Perry

Oliver H. Perry  is so excited about our shift towards inquiry-based learning. Our fourth and fifth grade classes participate in weekly mini-courses with our community partners, Center for Arts-Inspired Learning and GigaLearn. Students had the option of photography, screenprinting or Gamebot for a ten week mini-course during the school day. In addition to mini-courses, students in all grades are creating questions about what makes them curious and teachers are utilizing those questions to guide instruction. We are looking forward to our move into a new building in January. In our new building, we have a project lab on the third floor and collaborative learning spaces on each floor to take our inquires to the next level. Enroll your child today!

Why the Defeat of Issue #1 is Especially Troubling in Ohio

Ohio voters decided the fate of Issue #1 this November, with 63.4% voting “No”. A “Yes” would have radically shifted Ohio drug law by reclassifying many drug-related offenses (such as obtaining, possession, and use) as misdemeanors, rather than felonies.

Public Input Needed for Euclid Creek Watershed Plan

Public input is needed to help update a watershed plan for the Euclid Creek watershed. A watershed plan is a comprehensive plan for achieving water resource goals for a geographically defined watershed.  The Euclid Creek Watershed encompasses 23.3 square miles in northeastern Cuyahoga County and a part of Lake County.  It covers portions of 12 communities including Beachwood, Cleveland, Euclid, Highland Heights, Lyndhurst, Mayfield, Mayfield Heights, Pepper Pike, Richmond Heights, Shaker Heights, South Euclid, and Willoughby Hills. Euclid Creek watershed includes 40+ miles of stream, 30 miles of which is open channel and 10 miles of which is culverted or buried, as far as 8 miles away from the Creek’s confluence with Lake Erie, our source of drinking water, at Wildwood Park in Cleveland. The watershed is nearly 85 percent developed. Non-point source pollution challenges include stream sedimentation / siltation, habitat alterations, stream ditching or channelizing, and other flow regime alterations stemming from high levels of impervious cover such as roads, driveways, and rooftops. Updates to this plan are led by Cuyahoga Soil and Water Conservation District with funding from Euclid Creek Watershed Council and Friends of Euclid Creek through a Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District grant.
