Say Something Anonymous Reporting System
Last week we shared information about a coordinated effort to improve the overall safety and well-being of our students and staff that is taking place in all Stark County Schools, the Say Something Anonymous Reporting System. This reporting system, which is being implemented in all middle and high schools in Stark County, will provide the opportunity for students and adults to submit anonymous tips via an app, website, or a crisis telephone hotline that is staffed 24/7. NEXT WEEK, THERE WILL BE MORE DETAILED INFORMATION SENT TO PARENTS, INCLUDING A POWERPOINT TO EXPLAIN THE DETAILS OF THE PROGRAM. Then during the week of October 22nd, middle and high school students will receive information on how to use the system. The current plan is for the system to go live the week of October 29th. We know that ensuring student and staff safety is a team effort involving everyone, and we thank you in advance for your support.   
Don't forget your driver's license
when you are headed to an NCCS school
This year parents visiting our schools have likely noticed the implementation of the School Safe ID kiosks outside our elementary, middle and high school buildings. These were a gracious donation from our school PTOs this spring, and the district will continue to pay for the ongoing license fees and supplies. SchoolSafe ID provides visitor management as well as monitoring of student attendance

All visitors entering our schools will be required to have their driver's license (or state issued ID) for their first visit to a school. From there, instructions will be given on screen that can be followed so that future visits will only require a smartphone. The visitors phone will begin to display a barcode through the app when the person is in close proximity to the scanner.
SchoolSafe ID Process
Find the kiosk in the front entrance of the school building.
Click on the green rectangle on the left to sign in as a visitor.
Use the card reader to scan your driver's license.
Finally, click on the green rectangle on the right to print
your badge that will have your name and photo.
Preschool students enjoy visit to NC Police Department
Students and staff of the Mary L. Evans Early Childhood Center enjoyed their visit to the North Canton Police Station on Wednesday, September 26th. The highlight of the visit was sitting in the squad car and seeing the flashing lights. We are grateful to have such a special relationship with our safety forces here in North Canton! 
Orchard Hill holds "Grand Event"
This week Orchard Hill held a Grand Event for grandparents, parents plus friends and family members who are special to our students at the intermediate school. Our special guests enjoyed breakfast, a book fair and an opportunity to have a Lifetouch photo with their students.
Hoover won the "Goodwill Drive to Victory"!
Last Friday, Hoover High School received this email from Maureen Ater, Vice President of Marketing & Fund Development for Goodwill Industries of Greater Cleveland and East Central Ohio.

Even before tonight's kickoff, it was a tough battle between Hoover and Lake students in Goodwill's Drive to Victory. This friendly competition, powered by FridayNightOhio.com and iHeartMedia, challenged each school to donate the most goods to Goodwill Industries leading up to the big game this evening.
 
The donated clothing and housewares will be sold in our local Goodwill stores and ultimately work to support mission services right here in our community. Last year alone, Goodwill supported more than 11,000 individuals through its outreach programs.
 
Your students helped support employment programs for people with disabilities.
Your students helped build stronger families through our parenting programs.
And, your students helped provide advocacy and support to victims of sexual assault.
THANK YOU for your support!
 
This afternoon the donation trailers were weighed at our warehouse. Collectively, Hoover and Lake students collected 6,992 pounds of goods!
 
Congratulations.....HOOVER for collecting the most donations! North Canton City Schools will receive a $250 scholarship for their great effort, courtesy of The Canton Repository! Lake will be presented with a Drive to Victory trophy.
 
Much appreciation to each and every person that helped make this friendly competition such a great win for our entire community!

Thank you for your support in helping Hoover win!

Students at NCMS are Positive
Students were welcomed to North Canton Middle School Thursday morning by neon-colored notes with positive message attached to their lockers. Members of the Students for Social Justice, advised by Lisa Ile and Angie Kintigh, and the Student Leadership Club, advised by Suzanne Bourlas, stayed after school Wednesday to write the notes and attach them to the lockers. The goal of the project was to promote positivity in the building. The usual hallway chatter was replaced by upbeat conversations Thursday morning. Mrs. Kintigh remarked that students at first commented that the notes are bright and then they began reading the upbeat messages aloud to each other. Students at times dwell on the negative, and this effort offered optimism and encouragement.

Time for Hoover seniors and their parents
?to plan for life after graduation
As seniors enter the months of November and December, it can be a very busy time - they're preparing for plans after Hoover while still maintaining their high school coursework. Hoover High School counselors have completed senior interviews with each senior, brief appointments with the school counselor to cover topics that can include post-secondary plans, college applications, scholarships, financial aid, and more. Over the last several weeks, the Guidance Department has also hosted evening parent meetings to address these same topics. The Hoover High School Guidance Schoology Group is a great place to access many valuable resources for our seniors and their families - along with the material from the parent meetings. Please contact your child's high school counselor if you have additional questions. 
Time is running out to see Studio 525's first show
