North Baltimore High School Principal’s Report to the Board of Education - Dr. Bob Falkenstein - January 10, 2012

Biggest Loser: Our Winter competition has begun. Several Main Building staff members are participating.

Operation Lifesaver: I contacted Rich Hall at CSX to come in and present a train safety seminar to all of our students in Main Building. He works with Operation Lifesaver, Inc, which is a network of volunteers and also employees of CSX and other companies. Rich and I will meet to tailor-make a session for our students.

We will likely include tracks safety, highway safety, and dangers of trespassing. The seminar might include PowerPoint and DVD clips but will definitely be geared toward young adults. I hope to host the seminar later this spring.

Project Search:

Chief Baer and I went to another Wood County school to watch a program called “Project Search”. Serving Northwest Ohio this 90-day program is for young people who get a felony related to drug or alcohol abuse. Toward the end of their incarceration, these felons go to schools, tell their stories, and encourage students to not make the mistakes that they did.

The five felons that we heard speak were ages 18-23. We are working to bring the program here early in the spring. Much

like the Mock Crash, we want to inform students about how to make healthy choices and also realize that poor choices can have drastic, negative consequences for them personally.

Challenge Day:

All of the 9th and 10th graders at Main Building participated in this program on January 5. It was a huge success! Students gelled together and discovered that they all share many things in common. Many students pledged to be less judgmental and more compassionate toward their classmates. It was an emotional day.

I have many people to thank for making Challenge Day successful:

  • Briar Hill for making 160 bag lunches for all participants to enjoy
  • Mike Kipplen our ATOD Specialist for organizing the event
  • Lorrie Lewandowski and Wood County ESC for providing some funds for the event
  • Adult volunteers who worked with students in small groups and participated all day with us:

    Mayor Mike Julien, Police Chief Allan Baer, Superintendent Marlene North, Dennis Miller, Jo Busch, Paula Beaupry, Kathi Bucher, Bob Broz, Bradlee Rowlinson, Cristina Toflinski, Charlotte Powell, Jeff Daniels, Rob Luderman, Martin Zamudio, Amy Eynon, Sue Garner, Sarah Bugner, Mike Kipplen, Olwen Pritchard, Mindy Nicholson, Erin Mitchell, Greg Bonnell, Greg VanVorhis
